Core i9-12900K: Benchmark-Leak
There are increasing reports and leaks about technology and also about benchmarks carried out in advance with regard to the upcoming Alder Lake processor family from Intel, for example too Results with a Core i5-12400, about which the PC Games Hardware reported. You can expect the new CPUs possibly already at the end of this month, but November is more likely, also because there is an optional switch to DDR5 RAM in addition to the new mainboard chipsets. How now wccftech reports, further benchmarks have now been leaked, namely for the Intel Core i9-12900K. Some of the benchmarks come from Enthusiast Citizen, a user of Bilibili (a Chinese video platform) who already has a copy of the CPU and a suitable motherboard, namely an ASRock Z690 Steel Legend. He used the new AMD Radeon RX 6600 for the benchmarks – but since the graphics card is not a top model, it could of course hinder the result in gaming benchmarks.
In the graphics card-independent CPU test of the 3D Mark Time Spy, the CPU achieved a score of 17915 and is almost 28 percent ahead of the Core i9-10900K and 30 percent ahead of the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X. The leaker tested Forza Horizon 4 as a game and achieved 193 FPS with Windows 11, with a Ryzen 9 5950X it was 189 FPS, but under Windows 10 – this is important information, as the Ryzen CPUs currently still have performance disadvantages Windows 11 suffer. In Rainbow Six Siege the Alder Lake processor achieved 252 FPS, in Tomb Raider it reached 112 FPS – but results with a different CPU are missing here as a comparison.
