New details are revealed today on the Intel Core i9-12900k processor, which is expected to be announced at the end of October.
The i9-12900K beats the R9-5950X on 3DMark
Coming from the same reviewer that in our previous news on the i9-12900K, we have the right today to have a little more information, in particular performances under 3DMark or still in game.
The test configuration was thus unveiled, with of course the i9-12900K accompanied by 16 GB of DDR4 RAM at 3866 MT / s CL14 all in Gear 1. For cooling, we are using a simple PCcooler K4000 cooler (thus explaining the temperature of 108 ° previously recorded on AIDA64), but the motherboard was not disclosed.
On Fire Strike and Time Spy Extreme, the i9-12900K is thus very efficient, reaching the respective scores of 41,477 and 9004 points for the CPU results, in comparison we had obtained during our test of the Ryzen 9 5950X scores of 39,700 and 8724 points. The 12900K thus surpassing the 5950X by 3-4%, all with 8 threads less, but higher frequencies.
Then, 5 games were tested with this CPU, but the GPU being only an RX 6600 and not a high-end GPU as used for this kind of test, thus making the results difficult to compare.
So on the 5 games tested (to find on the source), there is for example Counter-Strike: Global Offensive with an average of 507 FPS obtained in the test integrated into the game or Forza Horizon 4 with 384 FPS on average for the CPU simulation and 229 FPS for the CPU Render.
