What is the power usage comparison?
Doesn't it feel great when there's competition and innovation within a marketplace ?
I see that intel shills are celebrating / salivating over a grain of salt rumors XD
Let's wait for an official review from Hilbert, and let's derive our judgement from there. Until then, AMD still wins this year.
Will not believe any of these AOTS benchmark salts as I've already learned from that waste of sand 11k Series from Intel
Companies only wake up when they get banged with less money.
You all be acting crazy brainwashed with brand loyalty to a faceless institution/company.
We should expect every new CPU/GPU to give better performance especially with PC gaming as the life blood for people who have a computer at home.
I want better performance numbers every new release.AMD/Intel/Nvida giving us crap forever with small increases and charging a crap ton of cash.
I am also a sucker who buys the new GPU/CPU all the time,so I have no reason to complain,just wishing like a dumbass for better,when I know it will never arrive to where I am fully feed to quash the need to buy the next one.
You sound like me years back. I use the term "MILKING WALL THEORY." If they keep pushing technology faster and faster they will likely back fire and hit a wall or limit. Computer tech now isn't booming like it did in the year 2000. We humans are pushing the limits with what we have now and what we can use. We will always hit a wall but you gotta have a new wall to start far away again and go again and again and see how long that path will travel until the next wall shows up.
Yup, that is pretty important factor here - DDR5 chipsets from AMD have not been released, and, Windows 11 is still a distance off from being used in any form of testing.
Intel brag beat AMD over ONE freaking game!? STFU Intel.
If you mean that ddr5 was used on this particular bench, I'm just telling you that there is no way ddr5 that is currently on has 100ns latency, I guess the E cores have been disabled and the other cores have been pushed with some kind of exotic water cooling.
Same bullshit like with Rocket Lake https://www.notebookcheck.net/The-I...s-of-the-Singularity-benchmarks.509533.0.html
Wait for the reviews
Maybe it's time for the X86 instruction set to be re-evaluated.
The M1 chip shows that a refresh in the architecture can get more speed using lower clocks and less power.
If the X86 platform can be evolved over time to maintain compatibility, maybe we can get a little more boost.
In the end though, integration of the CPU into the GPU will probably make more sense.
Ask a bunch of marketing executives to define speed and you'll get a variety of answers, which is part of the problem.
A classic: "This generation has 2X power than the last generation".
And the nasty truth that marketing executives rationalize over is they meant 'their' generation, and not the competition.
"speed" is usually marketing execs best case scenario. Very possible that the 12900k is 38% faster than 5950x in AOTS, but it may be behind in other benches. Only reviews will reveal full picture.
Remember bulldozer (FX-8350)? It was thrashed pretty bad by Sandy Bridge in majority of benches, but in 7-zip it beat it.
Yup, could very well be stock CPU.
Not stock cooling though :
"Intel CryoCooling Tech" sort of says it all really.
I suppose it'll eventually come out in the very tiny small print.....
Yep. AMD coming out with all these Ryzen CPUs kickstarted everything. I still don't understand why some people wanted AMD to dominate and kill Intel off. The best possible scenario that could have happened is happening.
We're getting great CPUs from both AMD and Intel and I hope they keep pushing themselves.
Remember people, buy what's best for your budget and usage scenario. Ignore the brand. They're both only here to make money, not to make anyone happy on some personal level.
There was a recent patch that enabled
In a way, you are very right.
As Jim Keller recently said, "X86 is probably the worst CPU arquitecture in the planet"
But the problem is that X86 is a very old ISA, with a ton of old instructions, that are still being used by companies and users all around the world.
This is an advantage, because it means that many are locked to the X86 ISA.
But it also means that Intel and AMD have to maintain support for these instructions.
We must also consider that X86 started as a CISC ISA, at a time when every one was still debating what was best. CISC vs RISC.
Eventually, it was proven that RISC was the best way. So with the P6 arch, Intel changed X86 to RISC.
But this was done by creating a big decode unit, that converted X86 instructions into uOps.
Because of these two factors, todays X86 CPUs, have a bigger decode unit than ARM.
This means more area, more transistors, and more power being spent by a X86 CPU.
But keep in mind that ARM has been adding more instructions to it's feature set.
These ad benefits, like performance improvements with certain types of calculations.
But it also means that ARM is becoming more "bloated"
@metagamer Except that there is no competition in pricing. Last year it was all about Zen 3, with Intel absent in Q4, leaving AMD to up their prices to the tune of record sales. This year we have a reversal, with AMD leaving Q4 all to Intel and their Alder Lake, so that Intel is under no pressure to do anything about their price. Sure, AMD will probably drop the MSRP on Zen 3, but who in their right mind will buy into a dead-end platform at its literal death bed? We're getting fleeced by both of them. The only way we win is if they both undercut each other while outperforming previous generations. Doesn't seem like that's going to happen.
Maybe there is (simply speaking) more profit in not releasing something until the competition beats you...which kinda makes you think why they have not done anything until 'now'.
Supposed result on R23
How exactly does this prove this benchmark wasn't done on stock cooling?
