Intel Core i7-12700K Content Creation Benchmarks Surface: Faster than Ryzen 9 5900X

The first (reliable) set of content creation benchmarks of the Core i7-12700K have surfaced, courtesy of Puget Systems (via: APISAK). The next-gen Core i7 part was paired with a Gigabyte Z690 motherboard and 128GB (4x32GB) of DDR4-3200 memory, as is the norm with high-end workstations. The benchmarks were run on Windows 11, making sure there weren’t any discrepancies regarding the core-to-core workload scheduling.

Comparing the Core i7-12700K against the AMD competition and its 11th Gen predecessor, the results are quite encouraging. The 12700K manages to beat the Ryzen 9 5900X (both 12-core SKUs) decisively while being 25% and 40% faster in After Effects and Photoshop, respectively.

The Core i7-12700K packs eight Golden Cove cores (performance) and four Gracemont (efficiency) cores. The former has a base clock of 3.6 GHz and a boost of 5.0 GHz (all-core boost of 4.7 GHz). The efficiency cores have a boost clock of 3.8 GHz (and an all-core boost of 3.6 GHz). The 12700K features 25MB of L3 cache and 1.25MB of L2 cache per Golden Cove core and 2MB for each Gracemont module.

The latest rumors on the street suggest that Intel will be launching its 12th Gen Alder Lake-S processors on the 4th of November. The next-generation lineup is expected to be revealed during an online event in late October. (From leaked benchmarks).
