Intel Core i9-12900K performs 36% better when using its maximum power limit

Although the Intel Core i9-12900K offers an incredible performance that finally puts Intel in a competitive position in multi-core performance against AMD, one of its most criticized points is its consumption, since this processor has a power limit 241W maximum, demanding VRMs and generating a lot of heat, something highly criticized by the general public. Now the performance advantage this maximum power limit gives to its standard 125W power limit has come to light, and the difference is quite significant.

According to these leaked tests, in Cinebench R20 the Core i9-12900K reaches 10180 points with its maximum power limit of 241W, while limiting its consumption to 125W reduces its score to 7492. This means that we can reach 36% more performance by allowing you to use your maximum power limit, albeit with a 93% higher consumption, completely ruining the consumption-performance ratio.

The tests also include the i7-12700K and i5-12600K, allowing us to know how the power limit affects these models as well. The Core i7-12700K reaches 8677 points with its 190W maximum power limit, while lowering its power limit to 125W drops its score to 6689 points. In this case, a 30% higher performance is obtained with a 52% higher consumption.

Finally, the Core i5-12600K reaches 6551 points with its maximum power limit of 150W, while by limiting its consumption to 125W, its result drops to 5953 points. In this case the difference is small since his power limit only increases by 20%, so his result only increases by 10%.

The benchmarks also include results from its predecessors for comparison, and as we can see, the differences are massive. Still, this is a single test, so this difference may not always show up. To know in detail the performance of these processors, you have to wait until next Thursday, when the reviews of these three new processors are published.

What do you think about the huge difference in performance that is achieved by activating the maximum power limit on the Core i9-12900K? Do you think it is worth increasing consumption by 93% in exchange for 36% more performance?
