Intel’s Alder Lake Processor Outperforms Ryzen 9, M1 Max
Intel’s forthcoming Alder Lake processors are arriving soon, and according to an early benchmark that has leaked, the Intel Core i9-12900HK outperforms every other processor around.
The processor has 14 cores — six performance cores and eight efficiency cores — and 20 threads.
The Geekbench test shows the Core i9-12900HK performs 14.5 per cent better than Intel’s previous generation of Core i9 (the 11980HK) in the single-core benchmark and 44 per cent better in the multi-core test.
AMD’s Ryzen 9 5980HX can’t match up either, with the Intel chip performing 22.9 per cent better in single-core and 61.3 per cent. in multi-core
Apple’s powerful M1 Max chip also struggles against the Core i9, with the latter performing 3 per cent faster.
