Evidence of Intel’s 12th Gen “Alder Lake-S” flagship processor being able to best AMD’s Ryzen 9 5950X continues to mount. The latest stems from a user on China’s Bilibili forums, who shared a CPU-Z benchmark teasing the alleged single-core performance of a Core i9-12900K.

According to the test, Intel’s upcoming flagship is capable of reaching a score of 825 on CPU-Z’s single-core benchmark. This is 143 points greater than its predecessor, the Core i9-11900K, and 178 points greater than AMD’s Ryzen 9 5950X.

The implication is that Intel’s 12th Gen “Alder Lake-S” flagship could be up to 27 percent faster than the current competition. Here’s CPU-Z’s rankings for comparison.

  1. I hope it ends up planning out true – about time Intel moved past Skylake, and it would be exciting to see another couple of back-and-forth generations between Intel and AMD

    Yes that would be great for all of us. Not sure if I’ll be an early adopter of Alder Lake, but I’m glad to see some promise from both sides.

  3. Sure but does it hold that speed across all cores when fully active? If not….. I mean no one is buying these for single core usage.
