News Intel Teases Alder Lake CPU With 5.5 GHz Boost Clock

yet they hide the temp and pwr ....wodner why <_<?
Probably because it's irrelevant for this CPU, as it's the best binned 12900 series SKU. People getting this is probably going to look for records and such. I doubt many people, unless hardcore Intel die-hards, will get it at the premium Intel will be asking. Which I'm wondering how much it'll be. Then again, Microcenter will have it with a good discount soon after launch, I'm sure, lel.

Regards.

The 1.381 Core VID that is shown in the screen capture is not comforting.

The Core i9-12900K may debut in the first quarter of this year; however, the exact date and pricing remain a mystery.
It's not going to debut in the first quarter this year. I'm going to predict November 4th, 2021 for $589.

Perhaps I'm just too cynical these days but in my mind, for the term 'blow it out of the water' to apply to CPU performance, something more like a minimum 10% increase in clock speeds is required.

It's a little disappointing that Intel still feels the need to lean so heavily on these sorts of meaningless, willy-waving antics.
