Intel's 12th generation Core processor 'Alder Lake' is evaluated as a 'new champion' that crushes AMD Ryzen

The 12th generation Intel Core processor for desktop PCs was launched on November 4, 2021. Known for the development code of 'Alder Lake', one of the features of this CPU is that it has two types of cores, a high-performance core (P-core) and a high-efficiency core (E-core). It claims that single-threaded performance has improved by 19% compared to the 11th generation, but according to the sites that actually reviewed it, not only is it significantly different from the 11th generation, but it even surpasses AMD Ryzen 9 It has been evaluated as a thing.

'Intel has rediscovered itself on the Core i9-12900K,' VentureBeat said, 'it's fun to review.' He simply said, 'When asked if it is fast, it is'yes'.'

Ars Technica benchmarks with Geekbench 5 , PassMark Performance Test and Cinebench.

In Geekbench 5, the 11th generation Core i9-11900K, which was the previous generation, was '10469', while the Core i9-12900K was '18241', which was almost double the score. The Ryzen 9 5900X is '13667' and the Ryzen 9 5950X is '15102'.

Regarding this result, Ars Technica has a strict view that 'Geekbench tends to have outliers in favor of Intel', but even in the Passmark Performance Test, the Core i9-12900K exceeds the '41128' of the Ryzen 9 5950X with '47835'. , Cinebench also says that the score this time is certain because 12900K exceeds '10085' of 5950X with '10323'.

VentureBeat ran multiple games on the Ryzen 9 5950X and Core i9-12900K and found that 12900K recorded higher FPS in each game. Especially in 'Hitman 3', the average of 5950X was 137, while that of 12900K was 190, which was a big difference.

There are multiple benchmarks on other sites, but overall the 12900K is better.

It is pointed out that the point to be worried about is the power consumption when fully demonstrating the performance, which far exceeds Ryzen due to the large number of cores.

However, it also means that the performance is overwhelming by that amount, and the predominant view is that 'Intel has regained the title of the champion who was robbed by AMD.'
