Processor comparisons   10-01-2022
   For example you can't decide which processor to buy, you can make a decision by looking at the Intel Core i9-12900F vs Intel Core i9-12900H tests and understand which is better for games or normal use for machine learning, video editing, programming, rendering, streaming. Here is all information from real video editing and streaming tests or several benchmarks. A thorough analysis of all the technical characteristics, so that it can be easier to read, is presented in the form of the table.
   From the comparison video, you can get the results of parallel examination in software tests such as PassMark, Dolphin Emulator, RealBench, Prime95, 3DMark, Geekbench 5.2, SuperPi, Cinebench 23 (20, 15), Blender, DaVinci Resolve Studio, 7zip, World of Tanks enCore Benchmark, Handbrake, WPrime, AIDA64, MATLAB, PCMark 10, UserBenchmark, Gears 5, VeraCrypt, Furmark, Blender.

Summary benchmark results

As a percentage of the maximum value based on a sample from the entire base of all processors

Processor Benchmark
Core i9-12900F79% Core i9-12900H81%
This parameter shows the performance of the processors in single-threaded and multi-threaded mode. In this comparison, Core i9-12900H is 2% better than Core i9-12900F. The data source is several popular tests. Detailed information can be found below.

Gaming performance
Summary result of all game benchmarks.
Core i9-12900F64% Core i9-12900H61%
The maximum result in this parameter is 100 percent, which is the performance of the most powerful processor currently available. And of course, this is a server processor, on which no one will play games. Because this processor costs several tens of thousands of dollars. And if it seems to you that the selected CPU has a little game result, look at the FPS that it produces in real games in the summary table below.
List of other games in which processors were compared: DOTA 2A, Battlefield V, NBA 2K20, Monster Hunter World, Metro Exodus, Half-Life: Alyx, Hitman 3, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS GO), The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Horizon Zero Dawn, League of Legends (LOL), PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG), Control, Forza Horizon 4, Microsoft Flight Simulator, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Ghostrunner, Resident Evil 7 Biohazard.

The numbers in this table indicate the maximum FPS that was received on the device with the corresponding processor. Depending on the configuration of the computer (RAM size and Video Card) and graphics quality settings (Ultra, Medium, Normal), the results may differ quite significantly. We recommend that you better study the results of the Cinebench, GeekBench and Passmark becnmarks.
The tested computers not only did they have different amounts of RAM and different video cards. But users also tested them at different screen resolutions: FullHD, 2K or 4K. So the game benchmark data is approximate. But all video cards met the average system requirements of games. You will get more accurate information about how powerful the processor will be in games, if you compare it in one assembly with the video card that is installed in your computer.


Power consumption
Core i9-12900F97% Core i9-12900H143%
To make a finishing choice on which processor is better, you should also consider the generation of its core. The newer the processor generation, the better its performance in games and benchmarks, as well as its energy efficiency. In this case the Core i9-12900H is more energy efficient than the Core i9-12900F since it has less power consumption: 65W vs. 45W. Power consumption is especially important for laptops. Also, when choosing a processor cooling system, you need to know its TDP. You need to buy a cooler that has the TDP data specified in the specification was greater than the TDP of the compared processor.


Software benchmarks

For example you want to use the processor not only for gaming, but also for streaming, programming, machine learning, video editing or video rendering, then first of all you need to pay attention to the performance in multi-threaded mode. In this mode, the CPU includes all threads and cores that it has to the maximum to reach maximum efficiency. You will learn this data from the benchmark tables below. Before using the data from these tests, be sure to find out whether the software that you are going to use on your computer can work in multi-threaded mode. Because there are still many programs that use only one core to work, and all the benefit of multi-core mode turns out to be unnecessary.

Comparison of specifications

In the specification comparison table, the processor release date and overclocking capability will be the most useful. The newer the processor, the longer it will last you. And the easier it will be to upgrade the system later. The same benefits from the presence of overclocking. When the processor can be overclocked, thereby increasing its performance, then it will still be able to produce maximum FPS even in new games. The economy are obvious! Accordingly, there is no longer a need to buy a new CPU to enjoy the games any longer.

Part number
In this comparison block, you should pay attention to the differences in clock speed and the number of cores. Another difference is that Core i9-12900F has 2 more core than Core i9-12900H. Also keep in mind that high CPU frequency affects battery life through power consumption (relevant for laptops).

Result:
The number of parameters for which Intel Core i9-12900F is better: 19
The number of parameters for which Intel Core i9-12900H is better: 12
   All the number in the text above do not mean that taking them into account you should totally trust a simple quantitative comparison. Be sure to watch the video tests and read the opinion of of people who bought Intel Core i9-12900F and Intel Core i9-12900H before making a selection which of the processors to buy for gaming.
