Intel Core i9-12900K ‘Alder Lake’ with 24 threads outperforms AMD Ryzen 9 5950X


According to Noctua, the laptop and processor giant company is ready to launch its 12th generation computer processor in October. Therefore, from time to time, it has been launching its latest flagship CPUs.

Earlier, the computer giant company revealed its flagship 12th Generation Core i7-12700 CPU in the market. As of now, it has moved one step ahead and announced its most powerful computer – i9-12900K, commonly known as ‘Alder Lake’ with 24 threads.

The i9-12900K is considered a “beast” because it has even outperformed AMD Ryzen 9 5950X in the Geekbench. The AMD Ryzen 9 5950, before this, was considered one of the most powerful processors.

Notably, before launching any CPU or GPU, the company always sends its first shipment of the devices to its OEM customers. As a result, the score of the Geekbench will be leaked obviously.

Intel i9-12900K Specs

  • Because of its Alder Lake architecture, the above-mentioned processor will be providing all the latest minor as well as major CPU improvements within the computer system.
  • Some of the major improvements and upgrades in this processor include eight high-performance Golden Cove cores (P-cores) with Hyper-Threading and eight energy-efficient Goldmont (E-cores). Moreover, the computing chip will be equipped with a 30MB L3 cache. Furthermore, it will operate at high clock speeds.
  • Unfortunately, the final frequencies of this computing CPU are still unknown, however, as per the Geekbench 5 database; it will have a clock rate (frequency) of 3.20 GHz.
  • Also, the Geekbench could not determine and measure the highest or maximum turbo frequency. Anyhow, it is expected that it will be equal to or above 5.0 GHz.

According to Geekbench 5, the overall performance of this CPU looks amazing, also it surpassed the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, which is considered as the “beast” computing processor. Since these stats are from the pre-launch hardware, therefore, some of you might find some changes in performance in the CPU.
