Legit hottest and latest leaks were made by Puget Systems benchmark database about Intel Core i9-12900K Alder Lake-S desktop CPU. Earliest July leaks of a new Golden Cove 12th Gen i9-12900K was all about it’s multicore 26% dominance over Ryzen 9 5950X 16 Core 32 Thread monster.
First twitter user who noticed this upcoming i9 gem was Benchleaks. Looks like some engineers are testing i9-12900k before it’s official launch at the end of this year. Many enthusiasts expect 16 Core 32 Thread i9 from the Alder Lake-S family to confront the AMD’s two year dominant squad. Overall After Effects performance score is established at 1573 points by i9-12900K paired with RTX 3090 discrete GPU. Amazingly, big good news here is a DDR5 4800MHz Dual Channel RAM which sits on ASUS ROG Strix Z690-E Gaming WiFi motherboard.
Not bad at all, overall 1373 score tells that Ryzen 9 5950X trails behind i9-12900K’s 1573 points by 20%. It means Intel did it’s homework since AMD has been humiliating Intel CPUs for the past 3 years in terms of productivity benchmarks.
Unfortunately, outdated mediocre Intel UHD integrated graphics processing unit still powers graphics department for i9-12900K, thus, it seems to be very shameful pair due to Intel’s lack of iGPU performance increase interest. In contrast, AMD Ryzen 7 5700G will still be a gaming king for Mini-ITX builders or minimalist PC lovers.
