An apparent Intel Core i9-12900K qualification sample has been spotted in a few benchmark runs carried out via PugetBench. The i9-12900K was on an Asus ROG Strix Z690-E Gaming WIFI motherboard, and it produced scores that put both the i9-11900K and AMD Ryzen 5950X in its sights.

Three benchmark runs featuring the Alder Lake chip Intel Core i9-12900K have been discovered in the PugetBench results database. The system involved with the After Effects 0.93.2 benchmark also sported an Asus ROG Strix Z690-E Gaming WIFI board, 64 GB (2x 32 GB) of RAM @4800 MHz, and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card. The powerful machine spearheaded by the i9-12900K managed scores of 1,575 points, 1,573 points, and 1,541 points in the tests, resulting in an average overall score of 1,563 points.

The results of the Intel Core i9-12900K in this system hold up very well against the predecessor i9-11900K and the competition in the form of the AMD Ryzen 5950X. Tables produced by Wccftech list overall scores in the PugetBench After Effects 0.93.2 benchmark of 1,548 points for the i9-11900K and 1,581 points for the Ryzen 5950X. While you would expect the Alder Lake chip to outpace the older Rocket Lake part, it’s a surprise to see it so close to the level of the 16-core Zen 3 processor at this stage.

The main surprising factors here are that this is more than likely an early sample of the i9-12900K so there is plenty of tweaking and refining to be carried out yet, and that the test system is operating on Windows 10 Pro. Intel has already revealed that Windows 11 is required to get the full optimal performance from Alder Lake parts – so the i9-12900K performing strongly in these Puget benchmarks is doing so while working on an unsupported platform. Regardless of where your loyalties lie in the semiconductor space, it’s hard to deny that Intel has clearly thrown down the gauntlet with Alder Lake.
