New Intel processors from the Alder Lake family will be announced any day. We already know what to expect from them and hope that changes to the new architecture and lithography will allow distance not only between previous platforms, as well as the competing Ryzen 5000 series. The initial performance results of some chips look very promising – despite the fact that many of them refer to processor engineering variants. But this time, we’re taking a closer look at the Intel Core i5-12600K model, which looks like the final version. The 6-core/12-thread chip was tested with four additional Gracemonts in CPU-Z, and the results suggest the Ryzen 5 5600X simply won’t launch in the new Alder Lake.
The performance of the Intel Core i5-12600K is not only limited to the most powerful Rocket Lake, but also the Ryzen 5 5600X. According to tests in CPU-Z, the upcoming blue chip is faster than the AMD chip by less than 20% on Single-Thread and 47% on Multi-Thread.
Intel Core i9-12900K – Alder Lake top-of-the-line chip compared to Intel Core i9-11900K and AMD Ryzen 9 5950X processors
Core i5-12600K CPU performance was revealed by popular Twitter @9550pro and TUM_APISAK. According to the data published by the first leaker, the processor scored 746 points in the single-threaded test and 7058 points in the multi-threaded test (the system is Windows 11). The score posted by TUM_APISAK was 79X and 72XX points, but the chip was overclocked and the test was done on Windows 10. Although we don’t know the exact timing or details about the testing platform, the results can be impressive. For comparison, the current Intel’s flagship desktop chip, the Core i9-11900K, scores 746 and 6,563 points in CPU-Z, respectively (according to the data provided).

Not only does the Intel Core i5-12600K beat the most powerful Rocket Lake – the chip is also much faster than the Ryzen 5 5600X, currently the most efficient six-core processor. In the same tests, it hit 624 and 4,811 points respectively, which means Alder Lake is less than 20% and 47% faster. Admittedly, such figures stimulate the imagination. However, we will find out what it will look like in practice on November 4. The official announcement of the 12th generation Core processors is scheduled for October 27.
