Intel Core i7-12700K Scores 800 Points in CPU-Z Single Thread Test

We have recently seen yet another performance benchmark leak for Intel's upcoming 12th Generation Alder Lake processors this time for the Core i7-12700K. The 12-core hybrid processor features 8 high-performance cores and 4 high-efficiency cores along with 20 threads running at 125 W TDP. The i7-12700K scored 800 points in the single thread CPU-Z benchmark which is just below the 825 points the flagship i9-12900K scored in the same test. The processor also achieved a multi-thread score of 9423 points which would put it just behind the Ryzen 9 5900X at ~9500 points. Intel is expected to announce the first Alder Lake desktop processors on October 28th with shipments beginning November 4th.

There are 4 weeks until 4/11
My guesses are:

1st week : 12600k score xxx points
2nd week : 12700k oc score xxx points
3rd week : 12600k oc score xxx points
4th week : Someone on the internet says : Just Buy It !

Interesting, & this is pre launch performance.
Looking forward to Nov.4!

This is on a i7 11800h running slightly overclocked at 4.3ghz.

It's called cropping.

Also Nicehash sucks. Join a pool so you're not giving them 7% fees, plus withdrawal fees.

you got 622 at 4300 MHz so 800 is the equivalent of 11800H running @ 5500 MHz. not bad. (i know this is an oversimplification and things don't scale linearly with Hz).

i'm curious what Zen 3+ with its 96/192 MB cache can do in comparison.

either way, i hope we can configure windows 11 to run system processes on the 4 E cores and let games have the 8 P cores to themselves.

This looks pretty good scores. We need now power consumption at the wall.

Yeah maybe Intel will provide GN some "motivation". I think that was the youtuber with the title, I5 10400, don't buy!

Looks like overclocking shenanigans going on here, but if true, good on Intel, it's about bloody time they actually did something, and a little competition will be good for the market, although I hear Intel will be asking more than a fair share of coin for these new CPUs...

But...

... Now we also have the revelation that AMD CPU performance is gimped upto 15% in the Windows 11 release version due to an L3 cache issue... And also there is an UEFI CPPC2 preferred core bug, which also gimps performance, but only on AMD CPUs yet again, and only on AMD CPUs with more than 8 cores, very strange that, you'd almost think that there must be a reason for this...

So anyone wanna bet that all Alder Lake benchmarks are done on the release version of Windows 11, and MS won't release a patch until after all the marketing and benchmarks are published and out there, even the benchmarks from your fave "independent" YouTubers and tech sites??

Wintel is back, big time baby, cheating all the way!

the one you might actually want to buy, alongside the 12600k.

WTF that score is too high, the benchmark code has an issu.....oh wait it's an intel, all good the score is legit, no changes required.

How long will it take for Alder Lake to be in laptops/gaming laptops?

The 11th gen just came out not to long ago, my guess is 8-10 months.

I don't know if Alder Lake will work on W10, but all serious reviewers should be able to test the AMD CPU's both on W10 and W11 when time for real reviews comes.

Rumors are that game benchmark aren't that good.

10 years ago 2700K @ 4.0 Ghz scores 400, and multi threaded 2000.
12700K is the equivalent of 8 Ghz sandy bridge. IPC lift by one golden ratio.

The gracemont IPC should equal that of sandy bridge clock for clock. considering 8000-8500 multi score, the remaining 1000-1600 up to 9500 is atributed to the gracemont quad on 3.7GHz. should be overclockable as well, but gaining 400 points is not earth shattering.

Performance per area of the energy cores may actually be better by 60% or so than that of the perf core.

Thats a pretty high score for CPUz but this benchmark doesn't translate much to real world performance.
ever since I benched my oldie i5 2500k oc'd reaching 500points, I notice how meaningless it is outside of CPUz leaderboard.
