The performance results of the Intel Core i7-12700K processor in the CPU-Z test, where it turned out to be up to 45% faster than the most powerful 8-core solutions from Intel and AMD of current generations, were leaked to the Network.
Screenshot with test results shared the notorious Internet detective Tum_Apisak. The image shows that the processor scores 800 points in single-threaded testing, and 9423 points in multi-threaded testing.
Recall that the Intel Core i7-12700K contains 12 cores (8 large high-performance and 4 small energy-efficient ones), but this processor model should become a direct competitor for the eight-core AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, based on its estimated cost.
The available test results of the Core i7-12700K in CPU-Z indicate that in a single-threaded test it is 17.3% more productive than the current flagship Intel Core i9-11900K, while the Core i7-11700K and AMD Ryzen 7 5800X processors are 24% ahead.
In multi-threaded testing, the new product outperforms the Ryzen 7 5800X and Core i9-11900K by 45%. Compared to its predecessor, the Core i7-12700K has 50% more multi-threaded performance. The new chip loses only to the nearest 12-core and 24-thread Ryzen 9 5900X. However, the difference is only 2% in favor of the AMD processor.
It should be noted that the published screenshot does not provide information on the specifications of the Core i7-12700K processor. Therefore, it is not known whether the chip was tested in a standard configuration or overclocked. Also, nothing is known about the environment of which operating system the chip was tested and with what type of RAM. Recall that the 12th generation Intel Core will be able to work with both DDR4 and the new DDR5 memory standard.
