More and more benchmark scores of the Intel Alder Lake-S are starting to hit the web. A couple of scores of the Intel Core i9-12900K have hit the Geekbench database and they offer an indication of how Intel's upcoming flagship will perform. VideoCardz writes the new chip seems about 12 percent faster than AMD's Ryzen 9 5950X in single-threaded tests, and about 3 percent faster in the multi-threaded tests.

The multi-core performance is definitely impressive. Compared with the Core i9-11900K, the 12900K is 2 percent faster in single-threaded performance but 57 percent faster in multi-threaded!
The processor has reportedly a base clock of 3.2 GHz while the boost clock is not read correctly (displayed as 3 MHz on the result page and 29 GHz on the score’s detailed page). According to the rumors, Core i9-12900K should offer a 5.3 GHz boost clock on P-Cores and 3.9 GHz on E-Cores. The CPU was tested on Intel’s reference and validation platform for testing.
Alder Lake-S will hit the market later this year. The platform uses a hybrid architecture, with up to eight Performance cores and up to eight Efficient cores.
