Alleged Intel Alder Lake Core i9-12900KF, Core i7-12700KF, Core i5-12600KF CPU Benchmarks & Costs Leak Out

The primary alleged benchmarks of Intel’s Alder Lake Core i9-12900KF, Core i7-12700KF, and Core i5-12600KF CPUs together with their retail costs have leaked out by Persian PC outlet, Sakhtafzarmag.

Alleged Intel Core i9-12900KF, Core i7-12700KF & Core i5-12600KF Benchmarks, and Costs Leak Out

Now initially these benchmarks which have leaked out ought to be taken with an enormous bowl of salt contemplating no particulars relating to the take a look at setup or what working system these benchmarks have been carried out on have been listed. Regardless of that, we have not seen these explicit benchmarks leak out wherever earlier than so these may very well be from early engineering samples and solely give attention to the CPU-side of efficiency.

Intel twelfth Gen Alder Lake-S Preliminary Costs Leak Out – Flagship Core i9-12900K Begins at 540 Euros, Core i7-12700K For 394 Euros, Core i5-12600K For 287 Euros

Intel 12th Gen Alder Lake-S Desktop CPUs & Z690 Motherboards Launching on 19th November

So beginning up, we now have efficiency numbers for 3 Intel Alder Lake-S ‘KF’ chips, the Core i9-12900KF, Core i7-12700KF, and the Core i5-12600KF. The specs are listed under:

Intel Core i9-12900K 16 Core / 24 Thread Desktop CPU

The Intel Core i9-12900K would be the flagship chip within the twelfth Gen Alder Lake Desktop CPU lineup. It’ll function 8 Golden Cove cores and eight Gracemont cores for a complete of 16 cores (8+8) and 24 threads (16+8). The P-cores (Golden Cove) will function at a most increase frequency of as much as 5.3 GHz with 1-2 lively cores and 5.0 GHz with all-cores lively whereas the E-cores (Gracemont) will function at 3.90 GHz throughout 1-4 cores and as much as 3.7 GHz when all cores are loaded.

The CPU will function 30 MB of L3 cache and TDP values are maintained at 125W (PL1) and 228W (PL2). The ‘Okay’ variant is anticipated to retail at $599 US whereas the Non-Okay variant will retail at $509 US.

Intel Core i7-12700K 12 Core / 20 Thread Desktop CPU

Shifting over to the Core i7, Intel will supply 8 Golden Cove cores however reduce down the Gracemont cores to 4. This can end in a complete of 12 cores (8+4) and 20 threads (16+4). The P-cores (Golden Cove) will function at a most increase frequency of as much as 5.0 GHz with 1-2 lively cores and 4.7 GHz with all-cores lively whereas the E-cores (Gracemont) will function at 3.8 GHz throughout 1-4 cores & as much as 3.6 GHz when all cores are loaded.

The CPU will function 25 MB of L3 cache and TDP values are maintained at 125W (PL1) and 228W (PL2). The ‘Okay’ variant is anticipated to retail at $429 US whereas the Non-Okay variant will retail at $359 US.

Intel Core i5-12600K 10 Core / 16 Thread Desktop CPU

Lastly, we now have the Intel Core i5-12600K which would be the entry-level unlocked chip throughout the line. The CPU will carry 6 Golden Cove and 4 Gracemont cores for a complete of 10 cores (6+4) & 16 threads (12+4). The P-cores (Golden Cove) will function at a most increase frequency of as much as 4.9 GHz with 1-2 lively cores and 4.5 GHz with all-cores lively whereas the E-cores (Gracemont) will function at 3.6 GHz throughout 1-4 cores & as much as 3.4 GHz when all cores are loaded.

The CPU will function 20 MB of L3 cache and TDP values are maintained at 125W (PL1) and 228W (PL2). The ‘Okay’ variant is anticipated to retail at $279 US whereas the Non-Okay variant will retail at $249 US. There’s additionally the Core i5-12400 that can retail at $203 US.

For efficiency numbers, we first have the Geekbench 5 efficiency scores the place the complete Intel Alder Lake lineup destroys all present CPUs within the single-core efficiency take a look at. In multi-core, the Core i9-12900KF is on par with the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, the 12700KF is quicker than the 5900X & the Core i5-12600KF is quicker than the 5800X.

In encoding checks, the Intel Core i9-12900KF comes out quicker than the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X in X264 and X265 HD benchmarks however loses within the HWBOT X265 benchmark. The Core i7-12700KF gives an analogous efficiency towards the Ryzen 9 5900X and so does the Core i5-12600KF towards the Ryzen 7 5800X.

In Blender, the Intel Core i9-12900KF is barely quicker than the Ryzen 9 5950X which is spectacular contemplating Vermeer confirmed an immense efficiency enhance in Blender resulting from its superior multi-threaded structure over Rocket Lake and Comet Lake chips however Intel appears to have turned the tides with its model new hybrid design. The Core i7-12700KF comes near the Ryzen 9 5900X whereas the Core i5-12600KF is quicker than the Ryzen 7 5800X.

The PCMark checks are much less spectacular as every Intel Alder Lake CPU loses to its AMD Ryzen 5000 equal however as acknowledged above, these benchmarks are nonetheless very early and we do not know if these have been carried out inside Home windows 10 or Home windows 11 OS.

That is made clear from the truth that the Alder Lake chips lose to their Rocket Lake predecessors in the identical benchmark. Regardless, the Intel Alder Lake Core i9-12900KF, Core i7-12700KF, and Core i5-12600KF are wanting like an ideal enchancment within the CPU artificial benchmark division. It’s attention-grabbing that the pricing for the chips is simply the place we might count on them.

The Core i9-12900KF is quicker than the Ryzen 9 5950X for $200 US decrease, the Core i7-12700KF ought to be quicker than the Ryzen 9 5900X for $180 US decrease whereas the Core i5-12600KF ought to be quicker than the 5800X simply round $200 US decrease. These are spectacular and present why AMD is already dropping value cuts at retailers on its Ryzen 5000 lineup. The Intel Alder Lake Desktop CPU lineup is anticipated to launch in November together with the respective Z690 platform and DDR5 reminiscence kits.
