PixInsight Core V01 05 09 0553 X86 Cracked
Our Core i9-12900K falls between AMD’s Ryzen 9 5950X and the most affordable 12th Generation Core i7-8700K, in terms of prebuilt components. Prebuilt solutions are always hit or miss depending on the motherboard and BIOS you get. But what we have in our take home Alder Lake system proves the Core i9-12900K can handle content creation and gaming roles. Still, there’s a performance delta between the Core i9-12900K and Ryzen 9 5950X, as well as between the Core i9-12900K and Ryzen 7 5700X, that we’ll need to dig into more once AMD’s 16-core Ryzen 9 2950X and 24-core Ryzen 9 3950X are more readily available. But you can find more AMD-based reviews by following the links below.
First, for the process-side win, we see the Core i9 16-core making a number of competitive strides in some areas where the RyZen 9 generations did not fare so well. For example, app reliability, SSD read and write speeds, and in some cases, 4K MP4 video.
With the speed uptick from the Ryzen 9 8950, as well as the higher clock-speed legacy Core i9-9900K, we see Intel’s first 14nm desktop CPU experience a bit more…athleticism than the Ryzen 9 5950X. In content creation, the Core i9 16-core is not 15% faster than the Ryzen 9 5950X, it’s 10% faster. In video editing, the Core i9 16-core is not 11% faster than the 5950X, it’s 40% faster.
With those results, the Ryzen 9 5950X is rightfully seen as the CPU that’s going to garner the most interest as far as content creators go. It offers a higher clock-speed than the Ryzen 7 2700X, but half the cores. That puts this chip in a position where, while it might be used by content creators who are really good at multi-tasking, AMD’s chip still has the advantage in pure content creation, thanks to its higher thread count. At the same time, though, the Core i9 16-core also has a significantly better margin of error in applications such as video editing, thanks to its sheer power output.
Our first stop for the Core i9-9980HK is right out of the gate — task switching — and it has an uneven showing. The 12-core, six-thread Core i9-9980HK can pry open a browser tab, but a quick YouTube video is going to kick its ass.
The biggest architectural change for the 12th Generation of desktop CPUs is Intel’s Performance Hybrid Architecture. Instead of having a single 8 core, 16 thread processor, Alder Lake has two 4 core, 8 thread configurations, arranged into two sets of dual-die silicon to get the best of both worlds. The P-cores are built on Intel’s golden-cove microarchitecture (hence the “A” in P-core), while the E-cores are built on Intel’s grain-size ready (“G” for efficient) microarchitecture. Though it’s unclear how this will interact with the company’s core count mismanagement from previous generations, this should be an interesting balancing act for Intel.
A big improvement on the previous generation, the Intel 12th Gen CPUs strike a nice balance between cost, performance, and energy efficiency. Though the mobile counterparts of the future of the 12th Gen CPUs will remain cloud powerful, they’ll be versatile enough for actual computing. And with 12 cores, 24 threads, and the new PCI Express 5.0 connectivity standard, the Core i9-9900K should be a great way to power up your computer, without hurting the power budget.
Even if you’re not counting on a $500 upgrade right now, the Core i9-12900K should be a welcome addition to any PC build. With its 12 cores, 24 threads, and PCI Express 5.0 compatibility, the Core i9-12900K is the most powerful desktop chip Intel has ever produced, and only the Core i9-9900K (which costs $300 less) is a close competitor.
