The first desktop models in the next generation from home Intel Demonstrate a promising level of capability
The blue chipmaker has revealed to the world (And in front of the Israeli audience in particular) Its plans for a revolution in the world of x86 processors in the framework The new Alder Lake generation, And now we seem to be getting some reinforcements for these big promises as part of first model appearances Core i9 andCore Next-generation i7 in repositories of common performance tests. Was hybrid architecture born to win? Feel free to keep reading and judge for yourself.
Core i9-12900K processor, designed to be the most advanced in the new desktop generation with eight large and powerful cores and eight more efficient cores (24 logical units in total, with the large cores enjoying support for HyperThreading technology and the smaller ones operating without it), was observed in the Geekbench 5 repository At a base frequency of 3.2GHz and achieves an impressive score for both single-core performance and multi-core performance - ones that almost perfectly match the performance of senior Ryzen 9 5950X processors fromAMD In fact, which include 16 cores Zen 3 physical and 32 logical cores.
The Core i7-12700 processor model, with eight large Golden Cove cores (including HyperThreading) and 4 small Gracemont cores, was also spotted on Geekbench providing a score that is within touching distance of Ryzen 7 5800X's senior octopus. AMD, And there is also solid evidence for the existence of a model Core i5-12600K, with six large cores and four small cores (16 logical cores all in all, with the spoken method in which the big ones enjoy HyperThreading and the cost-effectiveness manages without it), which can challenge the hexagons and maybe even the octagonals from the competitor's house.
The prices of the processors in the generationCore The 12 will be almost certainly higher than the prices of the current Rocket Lake generation, depending on the significant technological upgrade and the general situation in the chip market, which it is tempting to call 'unprecedented' - models Core i5 with or without a built-in graphics core (with K or KF extension respectively, as in previous incarnations) may start their way with pricing between $ 310 and € 270 (excluding tax surcharge in both cases) and $ 350 and € 295, models Core i7s will start at 395 euros and about $ 450 while models Core Leading i9s will reportedly reach a level of about $ 700 and about 595 euros, before taxes. All this provided they are adequately stocked in stores around the world, of course, because most of us have already learned in our flesh that prices can be believed in tens and hundreds of percent easily in situations where supply does not match the level of interest of hardware enthusiasts.
The launch of the first desktop Alder Lake processors, with a new LGA1700 chassis and Z690 chassis-based motherboards to be the first to accompany them, may take place in mid-November - with the big question continuing to be how they will deal not only with the next generationRYZEN 5000 current, but also in front of the generationRYZEN 6000 which may include further doubling the amount of cores in each price category relative to what we are used to getting from the red camp. We will continue to follow this whole issue with great interest in the coming months, that's for sure.
These figures certainly increase our interest in the next Core generation of Intel, So we hope to hear more detailed technical data on them as soon as possible. Watch for updates!
