[Jarrod'sTech] 12900K vs 5950X - Which CPU is the Best Right Now?

Nice work for Intel with what they’re doing. This means cheaper AMD products to compete. And at this point, really the real world difference isn’t that much, so it’s a win for consumers.

All AMD needs to do is release the same 5000 series with PBO by default on and they would easily gain the win for far less power.

PBO + 3D Cache and it's over.

Another benchmark with no SAM.

ID: hjledog

SAM is not on by default on the cpu tho Unless you want the result to be skewd when testing

ID: hjlf5hl

I want that feature to be included because it is there and can be considered during purchase. Just because it is not on by default, it should not be left out. All pros and cons should be considered when buying a CPU.

It's like buying a pizza with no dipping sauce that was included in the packaged deal. Would you not take a dipping sauce if it was free?

Typo. I meant SAM

Intel are catching up but the efficiency is horrendous

ID: hjlolgz

I would not say horrendous, the 12900K is just pushed above reason, the 12600K is very efficient for example.

ID: hjl7dsz

Totally. I saw sone gaming benchmarks and a i9 12900with some games pulls 40W more than a 5900X in a similar scenario. Granted, it also pushes out 20 or so more FPS, but still, 0,5 FPS per watt isn't what I call efficient.

Similarly, outside of extreme overclocking, it's the first time I see a consumer-oriented CPU hit 240W of power consumption and run hot enough to throttle with a NH-D15 tacked on (reports I saw mention that a i9 12900 hits 90°C with a NH-D15 on).

So yeah, Intel did catch up (not unsurprisingly, given how they're way bigger than AMD is), but they sure have a lot of issues to iron out.

ID: hjl7eqo
90°C is equivalent to 194°F, which is 363K.

I'm a bot that converts temperature between two units humans can understand, then convert it to Kelvin for bots and physicists to understand

ID: hjl85l1

Yep, they need to sort efficiency, I remember when AMD's efficiency was bad, now it's the other way around

ID: hjlmwzw

Wait is this true? 12900 stock throttles with that cooler? You got a link?

Intel is finally catching up to CPUs AMD has been shipping for the last year...;) Well, that's progress for Intel, I guess. My money is on AMD's upcoming Zen3 3d-vcache, and of course, Zen4, next year. Am not in the least tempted to go to Intel.

I’m excited to see Raptor Lake vs AMD next CPU

Get to see a more mature version of Intels next design while seeing AMD flex what they have been doing with more mature DDR5

ID: hjkazld

If all the leaks are right Raptor Lake vs Zen 4 will be REALLY close in ST... except Raptor Lake will have an 8 core advantage (24 cores vs 16 cores).

ID: hjk588w

Zen3+ will probably get a lot of people who are on 2000/3000 series over to it since it'll be the final release on AM4. I probably will upgrade to it from a 3700.

ID: hjkez49

What if you need a b550/x570 boards to run them?
