It is reported that Intel’s mid-tier CPU, Core i7-12700k, was tested in CPU-Z.
The i7-12700K CPU (12 cores and 20-threads) possesses fewer cores than 12900K (16-cores and 24-threads). This is evident in the multi-threaded performance shown by the leaked benchmark. @TUM_APISAK has shared a new screenshot from CPU-Z, declaring that this CPU is another one to score more than eight hundred points in a single-threaded test.
The flagship model called i9-12900K was featured in a leak, and it scored around 825 points in ST & 11900 in MT tests. The model i7, which has 4 less ‘Efficient’ cores than the aforementioned model, attains 800 and 9423 points respectively. Thus this CPU beats both Ryzen 5000 series and Intel’s Rocket Lake series by a massive amount in single-thread tests but couldn’t defeat Ryzen 9 5900X, a 12-core and 24-thread SKU model, which reached around 9500 score.
The information about the CPU’s specifications is missing in the screenshot and we are not sure if the platform was modified in any aspect or if the CPU was overclocked. Moreover, it is also uncertain which operating system was being used and whether it was having DDR4 or DDR5 memory.
Other processors in comparison couldn’t even cross 682 points in the CPU-Z test. It should be noted that overclocking is not involved in the final ranking.
