However, the Ashes of the Singularity benchmark results (discovered by @Benchleaks) do not impress. The Raptor Lake processor scored 13400 points, whereas a similar machine with Intel's Core i9-12900K scored 13300 points.
However, there may be a plausible explanation for this behavior. Ashes of the Singularity is a very old game that can barely take advantage of more than eight CPU cores (or perhaps 16 threads?), and it does not seem to benefit from Intel's efficiency cores.
You guys need to do better than this. It was a fanboy free-for-all when AOTS update v3.1 released right around Alder Lake's release and "coincidently" added support for 24 threads, up from 16. So of course a 32 thread Raptor Lake CPU will score pretty much the same as Alder Lake. The extra 8 threads aren't supported by the benchmark....yet.

Yeah, well, it is not like anyone expects those +8 efficiency cores to be helpful in gaming benchmarks any time soon, let alone in those games. Already in the 12700K review TH pointed out that it matches 12900K performance in gaming workloads. Adding yet more efficiency cores will benefit a range of productivity workloads, though.
