Intel Core i9-12900KS tested with Cinebench R23
Even before the CES 2022 started in Las Vegas, first details of the Core i9-12900KS became known. The CPU should reach a clock frequency of 5.5 GHz on individual cores. In the tests on the CES these values could then be confirmed. The Core i9-12900K did not reach these values. The better performance achieves Intel through an improved version of the boost mechanism that reaches Celsius at temperatures from 70 degrees Celsius and below a higher Boos tact.
On the side of Tabao there is a screenshot from a test with Cinebench 23. The result is 29519 points. Performance is almost 2.5 times better compared to the Intel Core i9-9900K. The performance cores had a temperature between 77 and 84 degrees Celsius. The clock fraud at the test 54x99.6 MHz. The software outputs this value in real time. Core i9-12900KS reaches 5.4 GHz after the screenshot in idle condition.
On Tabao there was also a marketplace offer for 29999 RMB (Chinese currency). Since the processor is not yet available, it can only be speculated over the exact price. The Core i9-12900KS is expected to be shipped towards the end of the first quarter of 2022. First, the original equipment manufacturer (OEM customers) are served.
