Intel Core i5-12600K “Alder Lake” Beats the Core i9-11900K, 49% Faster than the Ryzen 5 5600X

A CPU-Z benchmark of the Core i5-12600K has surfaced, showing the incredible potential of Intel’s next-gen Alder Lake processors. Meant for mainstream PC gamers and content creators, the 12600K is expected to be priced around $300. Going by the leaked benchmark, however, it performs like a $600 chip.

In the CPU-Z single-threaded benchmark, the Core i5-12600K is 5.6% and 16% faster than the Core i9-11900K and Ryzen 5 5600X, respectively. In the multi-threaded segment, it’s a smidge faster than the 11900K (2.8%), and rather impressively 49% faster than the Ryzen 5 5600X.

The Core i5-12600K will feature six performance “Golden Cove” cores and four efficiency “Gracemont” cores. The former will support hyperthreading, allowing for a total thread count of 16. The CPU should have a base clock of 3.4-3.6GHz and a boost of close to 5GHz. The PL1 power (TDP) will be 125W. The Core i5-12600K, Core i7-12700K, and Core i9-12900K are slated to launch in the first week of November.
