There are only a few days left until the unveiling of the new 12th generation Intel Core i5 processors from the Alder Lake series. However, the performance of this model is already showing, which in the new benchmarks showed much better results than the hungry competition from AMD. The new i5 processor has reached the performance of the eleventh generation of the most powerful Intel Core i9 processor WCCFTech.
AMD has risen sharply in the mainstream processor space in recent years and is starting to make Intel big wrinkles on its forehead. Proof of this is the last quarter of the company’s record Highest numbers in the last 14 years. However, Intel is not giving up and is planning to take revenge on the next generation of Alder Lake processors.
Intel will deploy a heavy caliber against AMD
So far, the results of many models of the expected series have appeared, as the new Intel Core i5-12400 will become a strong competitor to the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X. However, a step forward will be a more powerful iteration of the i5-12600K, which will achieve up to half the performance on the new benchmarks compared to the aforementioned CPU from AMD. The new tests were conducted on a platform that could be the Z690 system with DDR5 RAM. Additional specifications are unknown.
As a result, the Intel Core i5-12600K processor managed to give a respectable score of 746 points in the single-core test, which is 64 points more than the Intel Core i9-11900K processor, which was mentioned for the Intel Core i5-12400. Processor 681 points.
Then the i5-12600K multi-core test scored 7058.1 points. Thanks to these initial benchmarks, the hitherto unimagined novelty beats the Ryzen 5 5600X, and it’s a really big chunk. Even the new Intel Core i5-12600K is more powerful than the 16-thread AMD Ryzen 7 5800X CPU.
The new i5 can be an ideal choice
Let’s just note that this i5 will bring 6 Golden Cove cores and 4 Gracemont cores, with 16 threads (12 + 4). One Golden Cove core will run at 4.9GHz and one at 4.5GHz, the remaining four Gracemont cores will run at 3.6GHz at 1-4 cores and with a load of all cores at 3.4GHz. This new Intel silicon will also bring 20MB of L3 cache.
It is the Intel Core i5-12600K that can become a processor that many consumers will consider when choosing, including gamers, who will give them a good dose of performance. The question then remains only the price level, which is still not officially known. However, the i5 is destined to follow the pricing session of its predecessor. Intel should not increase prices for 12th generation processors.
