Alder Lake is approximately only a month away before its rumoured launch and according to fresh sources, the latest Intel Core i9-12900K Alder Lake flagship CPU benchmarks have leaked out and the QS chips show that it has a much faster single-threaded performance than the company’s Rocket Lake while. In the benchmark, we could also see that the multi-core performance of the chip is on par with AMD’s flagship Ryzen 5000 CPUs.
We have already seen several benchmarks of the Intel Core i9-12900K Alder Lake CPU, but this will be the first time that we are getting results from a QS chip that significantly offers better performance & overall stability. The tests were carried out on a B660 motherboard along with DDR4-3600 memory in Gear 1 mode.
Let’s jump straight to the benchmarks, we first have the CPU-z results where the Intel Core i9-12900K is 20% faster in single-threaded and is almost on par with the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X. In the Cinebench R20 score, Intel’s offering once again displays a 20% performance boost in a single-threaded and displays similar performance in the multi-threaded benchmarks.
This is considered a very good showcase of the performance which Intel’s Alder Lake CPUs have to offer. This is especially in the single-threaded department, but the only part worrying here is the high temperatures and power numbers. The Intel Core i9-12900K is expected to hit retail at around $550 US making it $250 US cheaper than the MSRP of the Ryzen 9 5950X & the same MSRP of the Ryzen 9 5900X.
