    Isn't that normal as it's year newer than the 5950X?

    Also, does it cost the same as the 5950X? More? Less? And what of power draw? That also makes a difference.

    While consuming 330w o_O if the other leak is correct.

    These leaks are all over the place.
    We really need some professional reviews to set things right.
    Luckily we got @Hilbert Hagedoorn

    Outperforming its predecessor by 59% and still loosing to 5950x. I just realized how much Intel is behind amd atm lol.

    I hope they didnt use a chiller to achive those scores.

    As I said previously these CPus are DOA, look at the prices here in Slovakia for amd platform 243145674_259083699305260_737534500276263148_n.jpg

    Until official reviews it's hard gauge real life performance, too many variables for leaks like windows 11 vs windows 10 what build/updates, ddr4/ddr5 etc.

    Such facts. At this point I am just waiting for the 6800x.
    And its wont need a chiller.

    Funny for once Greece is cheaper. €495/£415 for 5900X!!!! Got one this morning. 5800X for €387/£326

    probably with "extra-mega-turbo-boost" few second + turbo boost 1 min to performance the test

    Videocardz has a benchmark with RX 6600. They are neck and neck (5950X has some edge too) and I bet a PBO2 configured 5800X/5900X will be in par to the 12900K without requiring 300W. Also 3866C14 ram is been used on those benchmark.

    We should never forget 12900K is an 8 core CPU and will work as 8 core CPU in gaming.

    I posted the same thing last time there was article about I9-12900K and if tested with Windows 11 there are two updates required to correct the L3 cache latency which could affect benchmarks.

    Regardless this is good because now we getting both Intel and AMD at there best.

    Speak for yourself. So long as there aren't regressions, we already have CPUs from both companies that are years away from being a bottleneck in gaming. I look at maybe 1 or 2 gaming benchmarks for a new high-end CPU, because the results are always so boring.

    At this point, if you want a new CPU for gaming purposes, all that really matters is power consumption, price, and if you have enough cores to handle the games you want to play.

    At this point I don't care whether Alder Lake is the new sliced break or utter garbage, I just want the rumors to stop.

    November can't come fast enough!

    Wasn't like 50% better before? Now that its closer to release, its just 11x? When released, will it have the same performance as Ryzen 9 5950X?

    to give you a comparison (unfair maybe) my 5950x using ctr 2.1rc5 gives me 29451/1609 R23 it's not a super good cpu if you dismiss the useless and virtual 5.0ghz that i sometimes see (1us clock speeds don't count) I can do 4.9 single core at best, 2-11 cores I run 4.75 12-16 cores 4.5

    still the only thing that could interest me would be massive gains on DX11 or older low core-usage games, the ones that are mostly cpu "latency" limited
