More benchmarks with the Intel Core i9-12900K have appeared and this is good news and bad news for the blue field. APISAK data miner pulled information from SiSoftware and posted the performance results of the 16-core Alder Lake chip on Windows 11 online.
We wrote about the performance of the i9-12900K against the i9-11900K and Ryzen 9 5900X in this particular benchmark last month, and it appears that Microsoft has delivered on its promise to power Alder Lake in Windows 11.
In the Vector SIMD Native tests, the i9-12900K produces scores that are generally ten percent higher in Windows 11 than in Windows 10, with one test much lower and another slightly higher. It’s clearly better performance for the Intel Core i9-12900K, and while some benchmarks have shown the i9-12900K outperforming all competitors, including AMD’s Zen 3 family, here’s a different story. Despite the gains in Windows 11 over Windows 10, the Intel 12th Gen CPU still can’t catch up with the 12-core Ryzen 9 5900X in most individual tests.
