Test: Alder Lake Intel i9-12900K and i5-12600K


And under Windows 11:

It was obvious to us not to avoid Windows 11 if we wanted to test Intel’s Alder Lake processors. Intel has made it very clear during its conferences that Windows 11 is there to make the most of this new generation of CPUs. Nevertheless, we tested our two CPUs under Windows 10. Why did we do this? Simply to remain consistent in our comparison chart. All of our other CPUs have been tested under this OS.

Nevertheless, we installed Windows 11, for the first time, in order to compare our scores with the 12900K. The idea was to see if there were any differences performance wise. In the next few days we will be setting up a new platform for GPU and memory testing, and in the future we will opt for Windows 11.

As you can see, the differences are very small and the switch to Windows 11 for these different benchmarks has almost no impact.
