Performance | How is 12th Gen Intel Core i7 12700K (Good/Bad)
Intel with its new Alder Lake lineup when compared with its Rocket Lake counterparts sees an impressive 19% IPC gain. Thanks to the Higher IPC we are looking at better single-threaded performance which translates to Intel taking its Gaming crown back from AMD. When it comes to real-world performance is a lot better than its 11th generation counterparts. When it comes to single-core benchmarks the 12th Gen Intel Core i7 12700K is 15-20 percent faster than the Ryzen 9 5900x on average and 5-7 percent faster in multi-threaded benchmarks.
