Processor comparisons   10-01-2022
   Perhaps you can't decide which CPU to buy, you can make a choice by looking at the Intel Core i9-12900KF vs Intel Core i9-12900HK tests and see which is better for games or normal use for streaming, machine learning, programming, rendering, video editing. Here is useful information from different benchmarks or real video editing and streaming tests. A careful review of all the specifications, so that it can be easier to understand, is made by the table.
   From the comparison video, you can get the results of joint testing in synthetic type tests such as Blender, World of Tanks enCore Benchmark, 3DMark, WPrime, Gears 5, Geekbench 5.2, SuperPi, PassMark, Handbrake, RealBench, Cinebench 23 (20, 15), DaVinci Resolve Studio, VeraCrypt, UserBenchmark, MATLAB, Prime95, 7zip, AIDA64, Furmark, Blender, PCMark 10, Dolphin Emulator.
   And how good the processors are in games:
  • Grand Theft Auto V
  • Death Stranding
  • DOOM: Eternal

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 run games. Because this processor costs several tens of thousands of dollars. And if it seems to you that the selected CPU has a small game result, just look at the FPS that it produces in real games in the summary table below.
List of other games in which CPU comparisons were performed: Horizon Zero Dawn, Battlefield V, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS GO), Control, Ghostrunner, Hitman 3, NBA 2K20, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Half-Life: Alyx, Microsoft Flight Simulator, Monster Hunter World, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG), The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, DOTA 2A, League of Legends (LOL), Resident Evil 7 Biohazard, Forza Horizon 4, Metro Exodus.

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 participating in the comparisons not only were the equipped with different amounts of RAM and different video cards. But users also tested them at different screen resolutions: 2K, FullHD or 4K. Therefore, 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 compare it in one assembly with the video card that is installed in your computer.


Power consumption
Core i9-12900KF52% Core i9-12900HK141%
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 i9-12900HK is more energy efficient than the Core i9-12900KF since it has less power consumption: 125W vs. 45W. 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

For example you want to use the processor not only for gaming, but also for machine learning, streaming, video editing or video rendering, programming, then the main parameter for you is its performance in multi-threaded mode. In this mode, the processor turns on all cores and threads that it has to the maximum to reach maximum performance. 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 are unused.

Comparison of specifications

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