At the end of last year, Intel officially began selling the long-awaited processors based on Alder Lake processor cores. These are the first Intel processors to be built on a 10nm technology called “SuperFin”. This is actually the 12th generation of Intel processors, and they are much more powerful compared to their predecessors.
Of particular interest will be the Core i9-12900KS processor, which is expected to see the light of day soon. The novelty will be able to reach a frequency of up to 5.5 GHz when calculating data with one core. With this, Intel will already set a speed record in the field of processors designed for ordinary users. All active cores will reach a frequency of up to 5.2 GHz. The first measurements showed that the new product is expected to be up to 10 percent faster than the current Core i9-12900K model.
The Core i9-12900KS processor will be equipped with 16 cores (8 P-core cores and 8 E-core cores) and will recalculate data at a default frequency of 3.4 GHz. In addition, it should contain 30 MB of L3 cache. In practical terms, this means that the novelty will be ideal especially for the most demanding arithmetic tasks and playing computer games. Unfortunately, the novelty will not save anything on electricity. At full load, it is expected to draw up to 260 watts, or 19 watts more, than the Core i9-12900K.
In practice, this means that the Core i9-12900KS processor will need a sufficiently powerful power supply. In addition, it will be necessary to provide excellent cooling novelty, which will certainly be a bet. In addition, the novelty is not expected to be cheap. In the United States, the purchase of a Core i9-12900KS processor will cost about 700 euros.
