In the benchmark test results shared recently, Intel officially announced that the Alder Lake-S desktop processor has considerable advantages ——Even compared with the fastest AMD CPU on the market, the 12th-generation flagship Core chip still has 30% higher gaming performance.However, Hardware Times pointed out that the average difference between i9-12900K and R9-5950X is only 11-16%. In addition, we should not ignore other key details that Intel has not disclosed in the official publicity.

first,AMDThe Ryzen R9-5950X processor used a 105W TDP (PL1 gear) during the test, and the Core i9-12900K’s PL1 power consumption gate line is as high as 241W – which is 2.3 times that of the former.
This means that in the case of TDP equalization, the performance gap between the two may be further reduced to single digits, so many netizens who love the more real think this is a very unfair comparison.
Hardware TimesHe joked: After the “revolutionary” new structure was introduced, its speed was only 5-10% ahead of competing products that went on the market for more than a year. This sounds quite funny.
In addition, only PL1 is discussed here. If the power consumption threshold of PL2 is further relaxed, the result may surprise the majority of DIY enthusiasts.
It is not clear at present the PL2 power parameters given by i9-12900K when PL1 is set to 241W. For comparison, R9-5950X is usually stable at around 150~170W.
In contrast, the data of the content creation benchmark test project has more reference value. At this time, the 11th-generation Rocket Lake and the 12th-generation Alder Lake have both let go of their hands and feet.
The interesting thing is,IntelI am still embarrassed to release a comparison with the Ryzen 5000 series.
The results show that: Although Alder Lake has a 10% lead in gaming workloads, it is likely to only be equal to the Ryzen 5000 series in content creation.
With AMD launching an improved version of 3D V-Cache Zen 3+ CPU SKU in the first half of 2022, this little advantage of the 12th-generation Core is likely to be reversed again.
Finally, it’s important to point out that these benchmarks are for Ryzen processors.Windows11 Carried out before the patch is released.
Among them, the L3 cache patch saved the performance of most games from the low point, and the CPPC firmware scheduling patch allowed the system to correctly select the fastest core to improve the single-threaded performance of the Ryzen processor.
