Intel’s next-gen flagship CPU, i9-12900K, has completed its first game benchmark with an appearance in Ashes of the Singularity(Aots). Unfortunately, the benchmarks lack details on CPU, GPU, and memory information and only have some basic information like product name or capacity.
The processor was paired with the NVIDIA RTX 3080 GPU, but AotS does not tell whether the card was overclocked, which might make meaningful comparisons pointless. The benchmark was performed using custom settings.
The leak suggests that the first Alder Lake-S processor successfully completed the test without any major hindrances and achieved an average frame rate of 160 FPS. Only some of the settings with the Medium profile could be matched where the Glare Quality was set to Low and MSAA set to 1x. However, the leaked score was set to High and 4x, respectively. Although the card had higher settings, it was 17% faster than RTX3080’s best Medium 1080p score in the AotS database.
It is expected that Intel will announce its Alder Lake-S series at the InnovatiON event in late October and will launch in November alongside brand new Z690 motherboards, which will offer either DDR4 or DDR5 memory support.
