Summary benchmark results

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

Processor Benchmark
Core i9-12900K81% EPYC 7543P83%
This value shows the performance of the processors in single-threaded and multi-threaded mode. In this comparison, EPYC 7543P is 2% better than Core i9-12900K. The data source is several popular tests. Detailed information can be found below.

Gaming performance
Summary result of all game benchmarks.
Core i9-12900K72% EPYC 7543P77%
The maximum result in this parameter is 100 percent, which is the performance of the most powerful processor at the moment. And of course, this is a server processor, on which no one will play games. Because the cost of this processor reaches several tens of thousands of dollars. And if it seems to you that the selected CPU has a small 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: Half-Life: Alyx, Resident Evil 7 Biohazard, DOTA 2A, Ghostrunner, Microsoft Flight Simulator, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS GO), NBA 2K20, Horizon Zero Dawn, Forza Horizon 4, Hitman 3, Metro Exodus, Battlefield V, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Monster Hunter World, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, League of Legends (LOL), Control, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG).

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 computers that were in the comparisons 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. To be sure exactly how much performance the processor will be in games, if you get acquainted with the benchmarks that are made with the same video card that is installed in your computer.


Power consumption
Core i9-12900K97% EPYC 7543P19%
To make a final decision 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 i9-12900K is more energy efficient than the EPYC 7543P since it has less power consumption: 125W vs. 225W. Power consumption is particularly important for laptops. Also, when choosing a processor cooling system, it will be useful 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

Let's say you plan to use the processor not only for gaming, but also for machine learning, programming, streaming, video editing or video rendering, then first of all you need to pay attention to the performance in multi-threaded mode. In this mode, to reach maximum performance, the processor includes all threads and cores that it has. You will learn this data from the benchmark tables below. Before using the data from these tests, be sure to check whether the software you are going to use on your computer supports multi-threaded mode. Since there are still many programs that can use only one core to run, and all the advantages 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.

In this comparison block, you should pay attention to the differences in clock speed and the number of cores. Here Core i9-12900K is 28% better than EPYC 7543P in terms of CPU frequency. Another difference is that EPYC 7543P has 16 more core than Core i9-12900K. 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 i9-12900K is better: 17
The number of parameters for which AMD EPYC 7543P is better: 20
   Although it should be understood that the summary data in the table above do not mean that taking them into account you should totally trust a simple comparison of these figures. Be sure to watch the testing video and read the opinion of of people who bought Intel Core i9-12900K and AMD EPYC 7543P before deciding which CPU to buy for gaming and which not.
