Currently, Intel’s 12th generation CPUs have been sold in Vietnam, clearly this is the most remarkable processor on the market. Simply because they not only possess powerful performance but also elevate the system, opening a breakthrough when equipped with the latest features including support for DDR5 and PCIe gen 5.
To experience the power of this new CPU line that many gamers are looking forward to, we will experience the high-end test kit provided by ASRock in collaboration with Intel, Kingston and CoolerMaster including:
– ASRock Z690 Taichi motherboard
– Intel Core i9 CPU 12900K
– RAM Kingston Fury Beast DDR5 2 x 16GB bus 5200
– AIO Cooler Master MasterLiquid PL360 Flux . water cooler
The first will be the unboxing screen as well as the introduction of all test kit components made by Tu Te Tech channel:
A little introduction for those of you fast-forwarding the video:
– Intel Core i9 12900K CPU with 16 cores, 24 processing threads, clocked from 2.4 – 5.2 GHz
– ASRock Z690 Taichi mainboard belongs to the current most advanced line with 20 Power Phases, supports the latest clock boost features, uses DDR5, supports all ports from M.2 slot. gen 4×4, PCIe x16 gen 5 slot, Wifi 6E, LAN 2.5G, USB 3.2 Gen2…
– Kingston Fury Beast DDR5 RAM 2 x 16GB bus 5200 equipped with on-die ECC (automatic error correction) has extremely large bandwidth and blazing speed.
– AIO Cooler Master MasterLiquid PL360 Flux water cooler with large size, 3 RGB fans are not only beautiful but also strong, promising to weigh well the Core i9 12900K monster with a heat capacity of up to 250W.
To evaluate the performance of the Intel Core i9 12900K CPU combined with the ASRock Z690 Taichi mainboard and the Kingston Fury Beast DDR5 RAM kit as well as the cooling efficiency of the MasterLiquid PL360 Flux, we will need more other components to complete the kit. machine can run. That is the 4×4 PCIe SSD from WD – SN850 Black 1TB, the Corsair RM750 80 PLUS Gold power supply, of course, the Inno3D GeForce RTX 3080 iChill x3 graphics card.
In our tests, the CPU will run at the default level of the NSX although the ASRock Z690 Taichi mainboard is fully capable of doing more than that. Simply because most gamers will not have the experience and interest to OC or unlock power levels, anyway, in the game, the Core i9 12900K monster is too strong and it is not necessary to make everyone something more difficult. The only thing to do in a few seconds is to turn on XMP in the bios so that the Kingston Fury Beast DDR5 RAM pair can be on the correct 5200 MHz bus.
The first will be familiar benchmarks to evaluate the performance of the rig:
Cinebench with an ecstatic high score of more than 27,000 and especially the nearly 2,000 hegemonic single-core performance of the Intel Core i9 12900K.
Next is still the extremely high score of 3DMark with the section dedicated to evaluating CPU, single-core multi-core, all very very terrible.
To evaluate the overall performance is the score of PCMark 10:
Finally, the CPU torture test with Blender:
Through this benchmark, we can also make a preliminary assessment of the temperature and power consumption of Core i9 12900K at the highest level. That’s 95 degrees Celsius (room temperature is about 24 degrees Celsius) with a power consumption of 250W. It can be said that the ASRock Z690 Taichi has supplied very hot power to maintain a stable high pulse rate and the MasterLiquid PL360 Flux water cooler also does quite well with a monster with a boost pulse up to 5200 GHz, of course the pair of Kingston Fury RAM Beast DDR5 also showcases new ultra-fast data loading speeds for such high overall performance.
In the game experience section, we selected two famous AAA games, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Horizon Zero Dawn, to get an overview of the gaming capabilities of this 12th generation Intel system.
With Red Dead Redemption 2, we got around 100 fps from start to finish for the ultra setup from start to finish at full HD resolution. In particular, the action scenes of shooting each other with fire also remained stable and never dropped frames.
As for Horizon Zero Dawn, the average fps is about 145, we can freely go sightseeing or fight monsters very smoothly with the full ultra setting on full HD resolution.
In fact, the system’s ability to fight games depends mainly on the power of the graphics card, and the CPU will play a more general role and maintain the stability of the operation. It can be seen that Red Dead Redemption 2 has a lower CPU consumption when Core i9 12900K usually only runs about 30%, while Horizon Zero Dawn has a large world that is only up to 50%, so the temperature is also the same. very cool.
In general, it can be seen that the combo ASRock Z690 Taichi and Intel Core i9 12900K, Kingston Fury Beast DDR5 RAM has extremely strong performance, more than enough capacity to balance all AAA games on the market, using only about ½ performance only, as long as you plug in a powerful enough graphics card, you don’t need to worry about it anymore.
Surely streamers or content creators, people specializing in 3D graphics will love this monster because the system’s performance is so impressive. Of course, when used for rendering, a high power consumption will generate a lot of heat and the Cooler Master MasterLiquid PL360 Flux is a very possible choice to relieve this heat.
