Intel Core i7-12700K tested in CPU-Z

Intel’s mid-tier CPU has been tested in CPU-Z, claims the leak.

The i7-12700K CPU (12 cores/20-threads) is to offer fewer cores than 12900K (16-cores/24-threads). This fact is immediately noticeable in multi-threaded performance which has been shown in the leaked benchmark. A new screenshot from CPU-Z has been shared by @TUM_APISAK, claiming it is another CPU to score more than 800 points in a single-threaded test.

There was previously a leak featuring the flagship model called i9-12900K, which scored around 825 points in ST and 11900 in MT tests. The i7 model which has four ‘Efficient’ cores less, reaches 800 points and 9423 points respectively. With this score, the CPU outperforms both Ryzen 5000 series and Intel’s own Rocket Lake series by a large amount in single-thread tests but fails to win over Ryzen 9 5900X, which is a 12-core and 24-thread SKU, scoring around 9500 points.

It is worth noting that the screenshot does not provide any information on CPU specifications, such as the fact if the CPU was overclocked or if the platform was modified in any way. Furthermore, it is unclear what operating system was used or whether it was using DDR4 or DDR5 memory.

Other processors in the CPU-Z test can’t get past 682 points in an official benchmark, although it is fairly easy to do with overclocking however that is not included in the official ranking.

Intel will introduce as many as six SKUs on October 28th, including 12900K, 12700K, and 12600K SKUs and their KF variants without integrated graphics. All K-series CPUs will have a TDP of 125W, which is a first power state, not necessarily representing the real power consumption of the processor (such as PL2 state).
