Intel’s upcoming 12th generation Alder Lake The chip can be hung on Best CPU in the market.At the same time, the hardware detective Leak Digging out two benchmark results, let’s see it first Core i9-12900K Can be done in After Effects.
Core i9-12900K is the flagship processor of the Alder Lake series. As we have seen from previous leaks, Core i9-12900K advertises 8 Golden Cove cores and 8 Gracemont cores, bringing the total number of cores to 16. Remember, only the Golde Cove core has hyperthreading. The chip has a 30MB L3 cache and an unlocked multiplier for overclocking.Early engineering samples Core i9-12900K There are 5.3 GHz dual-core enhancements and 5 GHz full-core enhancements on the Golden Cove core, and 3.9 GHz quad-core enhancements and 3.7 GHz full-core enhancements on the Gracemont core. It is rumored that Core i9-12900K is equipped with 125W PL1 and 228W PL2.
On the other side of the ring, we have Core i9-11900K, Is the current flagship and the highest-end of the 11th generation Rocket Lake queue. The Core i9-11900K has 8 Cypress Cove cores, hyper-threading and only 16MB of L3 cache. It has a 3.5 GHz base clock and a 5.3 GHz boost clock. The octa-core chip has 125W PL1 and 250W PL2.
The Core i9-12900K system is based on the ASUS ROG Strix Z690-E Gaming WiFi motherboard with GeForce RTX 3090 And it seems to be 64GB (2x32GB) of DDR5-4800 memory. One aspect that needs to be considered is that the system is on Windows 10 Pro, which will be updated in May 2021, which may affect the performance of Core i9-12900K.
The hybrid processor does not work well with Window 10’s scheduler. However, Windows 11 brings an improved timetable to support heterogeneous chips.In fact, Intel recently detailed how Alder Lake is more efficient On Windows 11, given the coordination between its Thread Director technology and the next-generation scheduler.
On the other hand, the Core i9-11900K system consists of ROG Maximus XIII Hero and GeForce RTX 3090, but it is limited to 64GB (2x32GB) of DDR4-2133 memory. It uses the same Windows 10 Pro operating system as the May 2021 update.
Core i9-12900K vs. Core i9-11900K
|Core i9-12900K||Core i9-12900K||Core i9-11900K|
|RAM preview score||137.9||138||130.1|
Core i9-12900K score 1,573 with 1,575 Scored in the PugetBench After Effects benchmark test, and the best submission for Core i9-11900K is 1,548 point. However, if we only look at the final score, it will not be an apple-to-apple comparison. Core i9-12900K has the advantage of DDR5 memory, while Core i9-11900K obviously has a faster GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card.
If we look at the scores alone, the rendering score of Core i9-12900K is 11% higher than Core i9-11900K. However, Core i9-11900K is 7% higher in tracking score than Core i9-12900K.
Sadly, the file submitted by PugetBench did not reveal the full specifications of the memory. Nevertheless, it is clear that DDR5 has the upper hand. The RAM preview score of Core i9-12900K is 6% higher than Core i9-11900K.
Intel will finally launch Alder Lake in the fall of 2021. However, leading technology will never be cheap.Adopters of Lake Alder will have to invest in a whole new platform, which includes LGA1700 motherboard and 600 series chipset with DDR5 memory.
