Intel Core i9-12900 processor appeared with ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 Extreme motherboard

After a period of continuous news leaks from all parties, we are generally familiar with the 12th-generation Core series processors with “K” and “KF” suffixes in the starting lineup. There is not much news about other Alder Lake-S processors. These products with a TDP of 65W will be the main force of Intel sales in the future. It is said that a series of models with a TDP of 65W and supporting H670, B660, and B610 chipsets will not be released until CES 2022.

Recently, a Core i9-12900 processor appeared on UserBenchmark, supporting ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 Extreme motherboard, using only a DDR5-4800 memory, tested under Windows 10 system. The interface shows that the processor is configured with 8 P-Core (Golden Cove) and 8 E-Core (Gracemont), with a base frequency of 2.4 GHz and a turbo frequency of 4.25 GHz. Due to the big.LITTLE hybrid architecture, the frequency information should be inaccurate. Since it is only equipped with single-channel memory, the test scores of the platform will definitely be affected. Its single-core benchmark score is 214 points, and the multi-core benchmark score is 2510 points.

ROG Maximus Z690 Extreme is also ASUS’s upcoming top motherboard, which only supports DDR5 memory. If users want to continue to choose to use DDR4 memory on a new generation of processors, they can only buy ROG Strix series products.

In addition, Twitter user @harukaze5719 exposed a Core i9-12900KF processor, the display code is QY5U, which should be an engineering sample. Compared with the Core i9-12900K processor, it lacks the integrated graphics card of the Xe architecture to improve the cost performance.
