In the latest information, we got to see the first-ever alleged benchmarks of Intel’s Alder Lake Core i9-12900KF, Core i7-12700KF, and Core i5-12600KF CPUs. The benchmark details also come with their retail prices, and also this information has been leaked out by the Persian PC outlet, Sakhtafzarmag.
Coming to the first-ever leaked benchmarks, let’s remember that currently, there are no details regarding the test setup or what operating system these benchmarks were conducted on have been listed. However, we have what we have, and this particular benchmark has not yet been leaked anywhere before, so these could be from early engineering samples and only focus on the CPU-side of performance.
Intel Core i9-12900K 16 Core / 24 Thread Desktop CPU
this will be the flagship chip in the 12th Gen Alder Lake Desktop CPU lineup and will feature 8 Golden Cove cores and 8 Gracemont cores for a total of 16 cores (8+8) and 24 threads (16+8). The cores, particularly the P-cores (Golden Cove), will achieve a maximum boost frequency of up to 5.3 GHz with 1-2 active cores and 5.0 GHz with all-cores active, while the E-cores (Gracemont) will operate at 3.90 GHz across 1-4 cores and up to 3.7 GHz when all cores are loaded.
Intel Core i7-12700K 12 Core / 20 Thread Desktop CPU
this next chip will offer 8 Golden Cove cores but will its Gracemont cores will be cut down to 4. totally it be having 12 cores (8+4), and 20 threads (16+4) and the cores will be P-cores (Golden Cove) operating at a maximum boost frequency of up to 5.0 GHz with 1-2 active cores and 4.7 GHz with all-cores active. On the other hand, it will have the E-cores (Gracemont) operating at 3.8 GHz across 1-4 cores & up to 3.6 GHz when all cores are loaded.
Intel Core i5-12600K 10 Core / 16 Thread Desktop CPU
finally, the Intel Core i5-12600K will be the entry-level unlocked chip within the line and will carry 6 Golden Cove and 4 Gracemont cores for a total of 10 cores (6+4) & 16 threads (12+4). The P-cores (Golden Cove) will be running at a maximum boost frequency of up to 4.9 GHz with 1-2 active cores and 4.5 GHz with all-cores active. The E-cores (Gracemont) of the CPU will have an operating frequency of 3.6 GHz across 1-4 cores & up to 3.4 GHz when all cores are loaded.

Let’s talk about the performance numbers put forth by the new leaked CPUs, in the Cinebench R23 performance scores, Intel’s Alder Lake lineup is a leader and beats the shit out of all existing CPUs in the single-core performance test. In multi-core however, the Core i9-12900KF is on par with the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, and Intel’s 12700KF is faster than the 5900X & the Core i5-12600KF is faster than the 5800X.
Coming to the PCMark tests, each of the newly appeared Intel Alder Lake CPU loses to its AMD Ryzen 5000 equivalent however, we have no idea as to how these tests were conducted and which was the OS used for it, so we can expect the results to vary by a wide margin.
For more information stay tuned.
