An entry of Intel’s Alder Lake-S primarily based Core i7-12700K CPU has presumably been found throughout the SiSoftware Sandra database. The CPU noticed was working on a desktop platform & will likely be a part of the Alder Lake-S section which is headed for launch later this yr.
Intel Core i7-12700K Alder Lake-S Desktop CPU Noticed – 12 Cores, 20 Threads & 25 MB of L3 Cache
The CPU has no title however given its specs, we’re most undoubtedly taking a look at Intel’s Core i7-12700K (12700) SKU primarily based on older leaks. The pattern options 12 cores of which 8 are primarily based on the Golden Cove and 4 ought to be primarily based on the Goldmont structure. This could give us a complete of 24 threads (16 threads from efficiency cores and eight threads from effectivity cores). As for the clock speeds, since that is an engineering pattern, we’re taking a look at a 1.20 GHz base and three.40 GHz increase frequency however anticipate them to be a lot greater in retail and closing qualification variants.
Intel Alder Lake-S Core i7-12700K ES Desktop CPU Itemizing at SiSoftware (Picture Supply: Momomo):
As for the cache, nicely very first thing’s first, current software program suites aren’t absolutely up to date to acknowledge the Alder Lake-S hybrid CPUs absolutely, as such, the precise core and thread depend could also be inaccurate. That is the case right here because the chip is definitely recognized as a 12 core and 24 thread CPU whereas genuinely, it ought to be 12 core and 20 threads. The cache depend is appropriately displayed for 9 cores which signifies that the software program is studying the 8 efficiency cores appropriately however the effectivity core cluster that’s made up of 4 cores is being acknowledged as 1 entire core. Extra particulars on the cache configuration of Alder Lake-S CPUs may be discovered right here.
Most likely i7 12700K
– 12C 20T (misreported as 24T)
– 8*1.25MB + 4*384KB = 11.5MB L2
> L2 cache is reported as 9 core, I believe that’s proper resulting from 4 small core = 1 cluster. Benchmark might acknowledge cluster unit.
– 8*2.75MB(minimize from stuffed with 3MB) + 4*768KB = 25MB L3 https://t.co/fO84Bz2qM3

The cache can also be being displayed for all 9 cores at 1.25 MB per core when this isn’t the case. The efficiency cores carry 1.25 MB cache & the effectivity cores would carry 2 MB cache per 4 core cluster. The L3 cache depend falls according to the earlier rumors which positioned the Core i7-12700K at 25 MB cache. It appears just like the cache will likely be minimize down on sure Alder Lake-S configurations with this chip particularly rocking 2.75 MB (3 MB full) L3 cache on efficiency and a 3 MB cache per effectivity core cluster.
Intel twelfth Gen Alder Lake Desktop CPU Specs “Rumored”
|CPU Title||P-Core Rely||E-Core Rely||Complete Core / Thread||P-Core Base / Enhance (Max)||P-Core Enhance (All-Core)||E-Core Base / Enhance||E-Core Enhance (All-Core)||Cache||TDP||Value|
|Intel Core i9-12900K||8||8||16 / 24||TBA / 5.3 GHz||5.0 GHz (All Core)||TBA / 3.9 GHz||3.7 GHz (All Core)||30 MB||125W (PL1)|
|Intel Core i7-12700K||8||4||16 / 20||TBA / 5.0 GHz||4.7 GHz (All Core)||TBA / 3.8 GHz||3.6 GHz (All Core)||25 MB||125W (PL1)|
|Intel Core i5-12600K||6||4||12 / 16||TBA / 4.9 GHz||4.5 GHz (All Core)||TBA / 3.6 GHz||3.4 GHz (All Core)||20 MB||125W (PL1)|
Following is what the core configuration of all Alder Lake CPUs is rumored to appear to be:
- Intel Core i9 Ok-Collection (8 Golden + 8 Grace) = 16 Cores / 24 Threads
- Intel Core i7 Ok-Collection (8 Golden + 4 Grace) = 12 Cores / 20 Threads
- Intel Core i5 Ok-Collection (6 Golden + 4 Grace) = 10 Cores / 16 Threads
- Intel Core i9 A-Collection (8 Golden + 8 Grace) = 16 Cores / 24 Threads
- Intel Core i7 A-Collection (8 Golden + 4 Grace) = 12 Cores / 20 Threads
- Intel Core i5 A-Collection (6 Golden + 0 Grace) = 6 Cores / 12 Threads
- Intel Core i3 A-Collection (4 Golden + 0 Grace) = 4 Cores / 8 Threads
The Alder Lake-S Core i7-12700K CPU was examined on a desktop platform comprising of 16 GB DDR5-4800 (PC76800) reminiscence. Judging by the take a look at setup, that is undoubtedly a preliminary take a look at board & not a correct Z690 motherboard which are anticipated to launch in This autumn 2021.
