16-core Intel i9-12900K outperforms 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X and 32-core Threadripper 2990WX in popular benchmark

Already from the first tests of Intel Alder Lake processors, it was clear that they would at least compete on equal terms with the current AMD Ryzen processors, but the last test even indicates the possibility of Alder Lake dominance. At least the flagship of the line, the Core i9-12900K, performed very well in Cinebench R23.

In a multi-threaded test, it scored over 30,000 points. 30,549 points, to be precise. For comparison, the 32-core and 64-thread AMD Threadripper 2990WX scores 30,054 points, while the "civilian" 16-core and 32-thread Ryzen 9 5950X has 28,782 points. It should be remembered here that due to high clock speeds, Intel has always had good results in single-threaded tests, but in multi-threaded tests, AMD CPUs usually dominated. We can say that in this case, the blow was inflicted in red on their own field.

Recall that in the Core i9-12900K configuration there are eight large cores and the same number of small ones. But due to the fact that multithreading is supported only by large ones, the processor can execute only 24 threads at a time. The maximum frequency is 5.3 GHz, the sizes of the second and third levels cache - 16 and 30 MB, respectively. In Cinebench R23, the Core i9-12900K was tested with DDR5 RAM.
