“Heck yeah; meet Intel’s new flagship processor, the Core i9 12900K. It is based on the Alder Lake architecture and is reviewed here. This time around, Intel has been back at the drawing board, creating a completely new architecture that appears to work as advertised as it’s fast alright. Combined with a platform that is poised for the future with its incredibly fast performance, DDR5 memory, and PCIe Gen 5.0 interface. Alder Lake architecture is interesting in many ways, in contrast to AMD’s products it actually is a monolithic chip with no separated components. As a result, large performance and small energy-friendly cores are both located on the same chip. Alder Lake should result in an IPC improvement of approximately 19 percent, which is comparable to Skylake’s relocation to Sunny Cove. of course we’ll learn all about it today in this review.”
