In the recent entry of UserBenchmark Database, an alleged entry of the Intel’s Alder Lake-S based Core i9-12900K CPU has been discovered and this CPU was spotted running on a desktop platform. There was no name discovered for the CPU, however, looking at its specifications, the card which we are looking at is Intel’s Core i9-12900K (12900) SKU.

This CPU that appeared on UserBenchmark featured 16 cores of which 8 are based on the Golden Cove and 8 are based on the Goldmont architecture. This gives the CPU a total of 24 threads out of which 16 threads are from performance cores and 8 threads from efficiency cores. In terms of clock speed, this particular model has a 1.80 GHz base clock and a 3.65 GHz boost frequency clock.

These are the rumoured specs of the Alder Lake lineup:

Following is what the core configuration of all Alder Lake CPUs is rumoured to look like:

  • Intel Core i9 K-Series (8 Golden + 8 Grace) = 16 Cores / 24 Threads
  • Intel Core i7 K-Series (8 Golden + 4 Grace) = 12 Cores / 20 Threads
  • Intel Core i5 K-Series (6 Golden + 4 Grace) = 10 Cores / 16 Threads
  • Intel Core i9 A-Series (8 Golden + 8 Grace) = 16 Cores / 24 Threads
  • Intel Core i7 A-Series (8 Golden + 4 Grace) = 12 Cores / 20 Threads
  • Intel Core i5 A-Series (6 Golden + 0 Grace) = 6 Cores / 12 Threads
  • Intel Core i3 A-Series (4 Golden + 0 Grace) = 4 Cores / 8 Threads

Coming to the System on which the CPU was tested was the HP OMEN 45L desktop platform that comprised of 16 GB DDR4-3200 memory. This is just a preliminary test board and not a proper Z690 motherboard which is expected to launch in Q4 2021.
