Intel Core i9-12900K scores 30000 points in Cinebench R23


Recommended Posts


In the multicore test, the unnamed processor earns a score of 30,549 points, which, according to the CPU-monkey database, is approximately 6.66 percent higher than the Ryzen 9 5950X. It also comes very near to the Threadripper 2990WX, which has 24 Zen+ cores and scores 8.7 percent (33,213 points) higher than the current benchmark result, despite having less cores. CPU-Z reports a clock speed of 5.3 GHz, which corresponds to the stated maximum turbo speed of the processor, however it is unclear in what frequency the chip has been tested.

The processor was tested on a Gigabyte Z690 AORUS ULTRA motherboard with DDR5-5200 CL38 memory. That result beat an overclocked Ryzen 9 5950X, fueling reports that it will perform similarly to or better than AMD's flagship chip at frequencies. Interesting to note the processor's consumption at these speeds, as it is likely to approach 300W, generating a lot of heat in systems with limited cooling. It has better single-core performance than the Ryzen 9 5950X and the same multi-core performance as the Ryzen 9 5950X at a cheaper price.

I saw some other articles about this claiming much higher gains in some pretty obscure situations but they seemed either too good to be true or not representative of average performance at all so I didn't pay much attention to them, but this seem pretty realistic. 


I think I will be pretty comfortable with me 3700x for a long time, but it will be interesting to see how the DDR5 era kicks off.

I have seen some of the news on this CPU. Certainly looks like a good performer thus far in benchmarks. Looks like Intel is certainly bringing it to AMD now. Begs the question if AMD has another performance busting product in its next generation like it did with Zen 3.
