Intel Core i9-12900KS leak shows Alder Lake CPU beating Ryzen 9 5950X

Intel’s incoming Core i9-12900KS, the supercharged model of the present Alder Lake flagship, has been noticed in a leaked benchmark.

This was flagged up by {hardware} leaker HXL on Twitter (by way of VideoCardz), with the benchmark purportedly coming from somebody with an engineering pattern (almost certainly) of the 12900KS processor, who had listed the CPU on the market on the Taobao market in China.

The vendor posted the Cinebench R23 consequence with the on the market itemizing, and clearly we now have to watch out about whether or not that is real – significantly as VideoCardz factors out {that a} second screenshot supplied with this leak was confirmed to be a pretend.

Nevertheless, given the advantage of the doubt, the Core i9-12900KS managed to report a rating of 29,519 in multi-core, exhibiting an all-core increase of 5.4GHz, greater than the rated all-core increase clock of 5.2GHz (so that is an overclocked chip right here, which is after all the entire level of Intel’s ‘Okay’ fashions – they’re unlocked for ramping up the clock speeds).

Bear in mind, it is a pattern chip, too, so we might even see barely higher efficiency with the discharge mannequin (however enormous heaps of salt round all of this).

Evaluation: Taking up AMD’s 3D V-cache revamp

That Cinebench consequence beats out the likes of the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, though Intel’s chip in concept has been pushed out to assault Workforce Purple’s new 3D V-cache mannequin, not the prevailing Ryzen flagship. That stated, we have been anticipating probably a number of fashions of the 3D-toting CPUs from AMD, however the agency introduced only one, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D (and even that’s rumored to be ripe for inventory shortages when it debuts).

AMD notably asserted that the 5800X3D will have the ability to outperform the 12900Okay, an enormous declare certainly, when it arrives within the spring – however Intel’s Core i9-12900KS is promised for the tip of Q1, so will seemingly arrive earlier than the Ryzen chip, getting in forward to probably try and steal the thunder of Workforce Purple’s new 3D mannequin.

The 12900KS is actually a pre-binned model of the 12900Okay, which means Intel cherry picks the chips able to being pushed to greater clocks, permitting it a quicker most increase of 5.5GHz (and all-core increase of 5.2GHz as talked about). It gained’t be low cost, naturally, though the pattern CPU being bought in China is pitched at a ridiculous stage as you may think (29,999 Chinese language Yuan which is round $4,700, £3,500 or AU$6,700).
