We are approaching the launch of Intel’s 12th-generation Alder Lake processors and, of course, the Benchmark leaks are also popping up. This first leak speaks of a score in Cinebench 11300, which would exceed the 10240 of the most powerful processor from AMD.
Of course, it is information that must be taken with even more care since the one who claims to have tested the processor did not show evidence. According to the same source, the clock speed will be the same as that of a 11900K, but the performance per individual core will be up to 20% better.
What’s new from Intel
As if that were not the case, the 16 cores will be divided into 8 high-performance cores, along with another 8 with high energy efficiency. The idea would not only be to surpass the 11900K but also what AMD can do with its Ryzen that would not receive a new update until 2022.
If this is so, Intel would release this 12900K later this year and have a full year of having the best processor on the market, which would be the best opportunity the Blue Team has had in a long time. For now the Ryzen 5950X is by far the best on the market, so at the very least, they hope to match it.
It is worth noting that the only thing confirmed about the new Intel processors is that they use a new design called Big.little. From PCGamesn they confirm that Apple used the same design for its M1 chips for all its new iMac and that the performance is impressive for a mobile processor.
If Intel manages to get the same benefit for Windows PCs, we could see a paradigm shift by the end of the year.
