Intel's Alder Lake Core i5-12600K dominates AMD Ryzen 5 5600X in leaked Ashes of the Singularity benchmark
Barely a day goes by without another benchmark leak of Intel's upcoming Alder Lake CPUs. Just recently we reported on the impressive benchmark scores of the Intel Core i5-12400 and the Core i9-12900K. A step above the aforementioned Core i5-12400 is the Intel Core i5-12600K, which has now posted some remarkable performance numbers itself.
According to an article by Tom's Hardware, the Intel Core i5-12600K in combination with an Nvidia RTX 3080 achieved 110fps and therefore a score of 10,800 in the Ashes of the Singularity benchmark in the Crazy_1080p preset. That is 10% better than its immediate predecessor, the Core i5-11600K (from US$259 on Amazon), and it easily surpasses the 8,100 points of its direct rival from AMD, the Ryzen 5 5600X.
Please be aware that some of the benchmark runs that can be seen in the screenshots below resulted in much lower scores for the Alder Lake Core i5-12600K. Those are most likely the result of compatibility issues caused by the CPU's hybrid architecture with six hyperthreaded Golden Cove cores and four efficient Gracemont cores. As always, leaked benchmarks of unreleased products like the Intel Core i5-12600K should be looked at with the appropriate amount of skepticism.
