Intel Core i9-12900K is Up to 36% Faster in Cinebench R20 with “Maximum Turbo Power” Mode

Intel is now moving away from TDP nomenclature in favor of PBP and Maximum Turbo Power (MTP), previously referred to as PL2. According to Lenovo China Gaming Desktop Product Planning Manager Wofstame, he has just leaked the performance of Intel Core i9-12900K in Lenovo Legion 9000K desktop PC.

  • Intel Core i9-12900K: PL2 – 10180, PL1 – 7492, PL2/PL1 – 136%
  • Intel Core i7-12700K: PL2 – 8677, PL1 – 6689, PL2/PL1 – 130%
  • Intel Core i5-12600K: PL2 – 6551 , PL1 – 5953 , PL2/PL1 – 110%

According to those results, a flagship 16-core Core i9-12900K would see 36% higher performance in PL1=PL2 mode compared to stock settings, whereas the Core i7-12700K would be 30% faster. Interestingly, the 10-core i5-12600K would only see a 10% benefit when forcing MTP mode.
