At the CES 2022 conference at the beginning of the year, Intel announced the 12th generation Core Duo special edition i9-12900KS, the large core frequency was increased to 3.4-5.5GHz, the benchmark and maximum acceleration power consumption reached 150-260W , and it is expected to be available next month.
For the i9-12900K, the reference and acceleration frequencies are increased by 200MHz and 300MHz respectively, and the power consumption is increased by 25W and 20W respectively.
Now, multiple running scores of the i9-12900KS have appeared in the GeekBench 5 database, and it is confirmed that the reference frequency is 3.4GHz, but the acceleration frequency is only 5.2GHz – this is still the level of the i9-12900K.
The test is based on ASUS ROG STRIX Z690-F GAMING motherboard with 32GB DDR5-4800 memory.
The single-core running score is 2080-2101, which is about 5% higher than that of the i9-12900K , which is the strongest single-core performance so far.
The multi-core running score is 18992-19010, which is about 10% higher than that of the i9-12900K . Although it is not as good as the thread tearer and Xeon, it is also the most powerful on mainstream consumer platforms.
Compared with the Ryzen 9 5950X, the single-core and multi-core performance are nearly 19% and 15% higher, respectively.
