Intel’s mid-tier CPU, the Core i7-12700k, was reportedly tested in CPU-Z.
The i7-12700K CPU has 12 cores and 20 threads, which is less than the 12900K. (16-cores and 24-threads). This is clear in the leaked benchmark’s multi-threaded performance. @TUM APISAK has uploaded a new CPU-Z screenshot, claiming that this CPU is yet another to achieve over 800 points in a single-threaded test.
A leak said that the flagship model, the i9-12900K, got roughly 825 points in ST and 11900 points in MT tests. The i7, which has four less ‘Efficient’ cores than the previous model, scores 800 and 9423 points, respectively. Thus, this CPU outperforms both the Ryzen 5000 series and the Intel Rocket Lake series in single-thread tests, but it falls short of Ryzen 9 5900X, a 12-core and 24-thread SKU model that scored about 9500.

The screenshot lacks information regarding the CPU’s characteristics, so we don’t know if the platform was altered in any way or if the CPU was overclocked. Furthermore, it is unknown whether the operating system was utilized or whether DDR4 or DDR5 memory was installed.
In comparison, other processors couldn’t even reach 682 points in the CPU-Z test. It’s worth noting that overclocking isn’t factored into the final score.
