Intel Core i9-12900K Appears in BaseMark Benchmark Database

The upcoming 12th Generation hybrid Intel Core i9-12900K has recently made an appearance in the BaseMark database. The i9-12900K is a rumored 16 core, 24 thread processor with a combination of 8 high-performance and 8 high-efficiency cores. The BaseMark entry reports the processor as featuring only 12 cores which may be an error with the software not recognizing the hybrid processor or simply derived by halving the 24 threads. The chip was running at 3.2 GHz on an unknown Z690 motherboard from Acer codenamed Z69H6-AM with the latest Windows 11 22000.132 beta build. The processor was paired with an RTX 3080 and 16 GB ram achieving a score of 17,744 inline with other results with the RTX 3080. The 12th Generation Intel Core series is expected to launch in October with qualification samples already ready for board partners and OEMs.

It says "2206 [PC Partner/Sapphire]"

PC Partner owns Zotac.

Never assume that you know everything about anything, always be open to the idea that you still got things to learn:toast:

Yeah, although considering how good Sapphire products tend to be I'm a little surprised now.... Zotac tends to make terrible cards.

I'm excited to see more about the 12900k for sure though.

Still weird though,
PC partner runs Sapphire and Zotac, ok, but it says "PC partner/Sapphire" not "PC partner/Zotac"

So you mean this BaseMark thingy doing:

1. Reads the hardware Device ID from your card's BIOS
2. Instead of using the obvious Zotac brand name embedded in the BIOs, it googles the parent company of the brand.
3. Instead of displaying the parent company it just googled, it googled again to find what is the brand under this company.
4. it screwed up googling Zotac under this company, so it displays Sapphire. :toast:

It's not the first time that an Nvidia GPU show sapphire instead of Zotac, it' seems to happen often with pre-built

Maybe bad luck with some products, perhaps something from 2005-2010 era. But some happy users of terrible products like me and my friends who participated in mining till 2020 with a good bunch of Zotac, Palit/Gainward and Asus nvidia cards ranging from low cost to "hi-end". All of them equally good, all of them had some fans died in 2-3 years, no other troubles.

Do you need Win11 to be able to fully use this abomination of the CPU? Or Win10 will also going to receive a patch later on?

Someone tested on the EOLakefield and it has 6% performance boost on Win11 vs Win10
But EOLakefield is 1+4 , it is relatively simple to manage only 5 cores.
The so-called 12900k will have 8+8.
I won't be surprised when it loses >10% performance in Win10.
