16-core Intel Core i7-12700 performed in the test at the level of Ryzen 7 5800X

In the Geekbench benchmark, the new Intel processor looming on the horizon of the Alder Lake series - Intel Core i7-12700 - was lit up. The absence of the letter K in the name indicates the lack of overclocking support, but at the same time there is another feature - the Core i7-12700 does not have a division into small and large cores, which is typical for some members of the family. It only has large cores in the amount of 8 pieces, hence the support for executing 16 threads at the same time.

There is no characteristic feature of the series in the form of large and small nuclei - there is no progress either? Not really, since the CPU series should also support DDR5 and PCIe 5. However, so far the result indicates that such an Alder Lake is no worse than the "old horse" Ryzen 7 5800X.

In Geekbench, the Core i7-12700, clocked at 2.1-4.79 GHz, scored almost 1595 points in a single-threaded test and 10,170 points in a multi-threaded one. Compared to its predecessor, Core i7-11700, the first result is slightly worse, but the second is better by about 15%. Compared to the Ryzen 7 5800X, the Core i7-12700 is 5% slower in a single-threaded test and 2% slower in a multi-threaded test.

In general, despite the great innovations that Alder Lake brings with them (this is the new LGA 1700 socket, and different cores, and the aforementioned support for PCIe 5 and DDR5), you should not count on a significant performance increase relative to the current generation of Intel and AMD processors.
