Extra Intel Core i9-12900K Alder Lake CPU artificial and gaming benchmarks have leaked out in broadly used assessments. The CPU has been getting new benchmarks ever because the qualification samples had been launched in public.
Intel Core i9-12900K Alder Lake CPU Benchmarked In Artificial & Gaming Exams, Quicker Than AMD Ryzen 9 5950X
The primary benchmarks come from Bilibili’s member, Fanatic Citizen, who has actively been bench-marking the Intel Core i9-12900K retail unit for some time now. The leaker has supplied a number of Alder Lake benchmarks and now, he submitted a review of the Radeon RX 6600 on a Core i9-12900K check bench. Now it would not make any sense to submit a evaluate on an unreleased platform with bugs however that is what the leaker did.
The check platform featured what appears to be like to be an ASRock Z690 Metal Legend motherboard based mostly on the heatsink design and white/silver colours. It was working ZADAK’s DDR5-3866 reminiscence in Gear 1 mode with CL14-14-14-34-2T timings. An ordinary tower heatsink cooler was used to chill to the i9-12900K and examined on an open-air bench.
Intel Core i9-12900K Alder Lake Flagship CPU Specs
Intel’s Core i9-12900K Alder Lake-S CPU will rock 16 cores and 24 threads. That is organized in 8 P-Core (with 16 threads) and eight E-Core (with 8 threads). The CPU options 30 MB of L3 cache which is organized in 3 MB per core partitions on the P-Core (Golden Cove) and three MB per cluster on the E-Core (Gracemont). That is 8 P-Cores for twenty-four MB from the P-Cores and 6 MB from the 2 clusters comprising 4 E-Cores every. There’s additionally 1.25 MB of L2 cache for a complete of 12.5 MB on the whole chip.
As for clock speeds, the Intel Core i9-12900K is anticipated to function a P-Core base and increase clocks of three.2 GHz / 5.3 GHz and E-Core base and increase clocks of three.0 / 3.9 GHz. These increase clocks are for a single-core. The all-core increase frequencies are anticipated to be 5.0 GHz for the P-Core and three.7 GHz for the E-Core. The higher speeds shall be achieved solely when TVB (Thermal Velocity Enhance) has been activated so regular increase speeds could be somewhat decrease.
Intel Core i9-12900K Alder Lake Flagship CPU Efficiency
When it comes to efficiency, the leaker first reveals off the artificial efficiency of the Intel Core i9-12900K in 3DMark Time Spy and Fireplace Strike benchmarks. The efficiency metrics are supplied under:
As for gaming benchmarks, the one comparative efficiency benchmark was performed in Forza Horizon 4. The Intel Core i9-12900K scored 193 FPS at 1080p whereas working on Home windows 11 & AMD’s Ryzen 9 5950X scored 189 FPS with the identical settings however working on Home windows 10. The Home windows 10 OS for AMD CPUs is smart since Ryzen chips have efficiency degradation points associated to the L3 cache which adversely impacts gaming efficiency and therefore the most effective efficiency is barely measurable in Home windows 10. It is a small 2% lead over the Ryzen 9 5950X.
Different benchmarks for the Intel Core i9-12900K included Rainbow Six Siege which scored 252 FPS at 1080p and Shadow of The Tomb Raider which scored 112 FPS at 1080p. Sadly, the leaker didn’t present any comparisons in these gaming assessments.
Intel’s Alder Lake Desktop CPUs will function each DDR5 and DDR4 reminiscence controllers and 600-series motherboards may even include DDR5/DDR4 particular choices. Excessive-end motherboards will retain DDR5 whereas the extra mainstream choices will open up DDR4 assist too. The Intel Alder Lake CPU lineup is anticipated to launch in November together with the respective Z690 platform and DDR5 reminiscence kits.
