Intel will destroy the mid-range CPU with its i7-12700K. How fast is it?

There are two things hardware hobbyists look to when a new CPU comes out: architecture and performance. The reason is none other than when buying a CPU the best choice is the one that gives us the best performance at that price and with the proximity of the Intel Core 12 these are being put to the test. The last? They have put the i7-12700K under CPU-Z, how fast is it?

For some the Intel Core 12 are nothing more than a vulgar update, for others on the other hand it is the most important leap in terms of architecture since the launch of the Core 2 in the mid-2000s and almost at the level of the launch of the original. Pentium Pro for the large number of new features it brings, not only for the use of heterogeneous cores, but also for the implementation of a new control unit to take advantage of this feature more efficiently.

Well, the results are already beginning to be noticed and the i7-12700K is obtaining results in the CPU-Z benchmarks that not only put it above its predecessor, the 11700K, but also its direct rival, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X. How much better is Intel's new mid-range CPU? Let's find out.

This is how the Intel Core i7-12700K performs under CPU-Z



We all know that CPU-Z includes a series of benchmarks that serve to measure the performance of the processors and be able to qualify both cardinally and ordinally their power with respect to the rest of the options on the market. This time the performance test has been made to the i7-12700K, successor to the i7-11700K and it should be in the same price range as its direct rival from AMD, the Ryzen 7 5800X. And what results have you obtained? Well, as you can see, Intel's new mid-range processor scores 800.2 points in the single-core performance test and a score of 9423.2 in the multi-core test.



Looking at the comparison with its direct rivals, we see how in the single-core test the Ryzen 7 5800X achieves a score of 640, while the i7-11700K reaches 645. Which puts Intel's new CPU 25% above that of AMD and its predecessor. On the other hand, if we go to the performance test for multicore, we find that the i7-11700K gets 6261 points and the 5800X a little more with a result of 6560. In percentages this places the Intel Core 12 50% above its direct predecessor and 43% above its direct rival.



Although from the results obtained by the i7-12700K under CPU-Z, what surprises us the most is that in both tests it surpasses the i9-11900K, which is a few weeks after the release of the new generation of Intel CPU, its most common processor. powerful desktop to date. In the test that measures the parallel work of several cores under the benchmark the advantage is 43% for the mid-range Intel Core 12 and the one that measures the performance capacity in series and therefore with a single core is 18 %. Which is close to the jump in IPC promised by the blue brand in its new architecture.
