In a recent leak of Cinebench R20, Intel Core i9-12900K looks to be able to outperform AMD Ryzen 9 5950X.
Leaked benchmarks from Intel’s latest CPU are reportedly sticking out on the Internet. This time, it’s the turn of the benchmark results from the Core i9-12900K Alder Lake-S, which a leaker successfully obtained on the Internet.
It was OneRaichu who got a leak regarding the benchmark of the Intel Core i9-12900K Alder Lake-S. The leaked test is a test that uses the Cinebench R20 application.
In the test, the Intel Core i9-12900K tested was suspected to be a ‘Qualification Example’ QS chip. So, most likely, the performance that is presented when officially sold will be different.
This is because the Alder Lake-S processor is a hybrid processor with many applications that do not fully support the technology. Therefore, they will continue to make updates to improve the performance of the CPU.
What needs to be considered is that this test seems to use liquid cooling. In addition, the specifications of the motherboard and the type of RAM used are also unknown at this time.
Here are the benchmark results for the Intel Core i9-12900K, as quoted from the Wccftech page (July 21):
As can be seen, the Cinebench R20 performance from the processor is quite high. Compared to the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, the Intel Core i9-12900K scores significantly higher.
This is because the processor is the flagship processor in the 12th Generation Alder Lake Desktop CPU line. This processor comes with 8 Golden Cove cores and 8 Gracemont cores for a totall of 16 cores (8+8) and 24 threads (16+8).
The P-core (Golden Cove) will operate at a maximum boost frequency of up to 5.3 GHz with 1-2 actiive cores and 5.0 GHz with all-core active. At the same time, the E-core (Gracemont) will operatte at 3.90 GHz across 1-4 cores and up to 3.7 GHz when all cores are running.
This CPU will feature 30 MB of L3 cache, and TDP values are maintained at 125W (PL1) and 228W (PL2). Unfortunately, information regarding the launch of this processor still cannot be confirmed.
