According to recent sources, there appear to be some last-minute benchmark results presented by the German TweakPC featuring 16-core Core i9-12900K, 12-core Core i7-12700K, and 10-core Core i5-12600K CPUs.

The website reported testing the SKUs before their launch and the flagship model was tested with four different power limit settings, illustrating how much more performance comes at higher power consumption.

Alder Lake Intel has introduced a new naming scheme for power consumption figures, replacing TDP with Processor Base Power and PL2 (Power Limit 2) with Maximum Turbo Power.

Coming to the benchmark results, the Core i9-12900K gains nearly 28% performance with a power limit increased from 125W (PBP) to 241W (MTP), and according to sources, the test was performed with liquid cooling, thus preventing the CPU from overheating over 81°C.

Reports also indicate that the CPU was tested with a Dark Rock Pro 4 air cooler, however, it showed a slightly different picture. With the power limit at maximum, the CPU has quickly reached 100°C just 4 minutes after the test has begun.

Alder Lake is Intel’s codename for the 12th-generation of Intel Core processors based on a hybrid architecture utilizing Golden Cove high-performance cores and Gracemont power-efficient cores. It is to be fabricated using Intel’s Intel 7 process, previously referred to as Intel 10 nm Enhanced SuperFin.
