Intel Core i3-12300 Destroys the Ryzen 3 3300X in Leaked Benchmarks: Up to 33% Faster

Intel is set to announce its budget Alder Lake-S processors at CES 2022 (January). You can expect cheaper variants of the Core i7-12700K, Core i9-12900K, and the Core i5-12600K. In addition to these, we’ll also be getting quad-core SKUs in the form of the Core i3-12100, and the 12300. Unlike the K-series parts, the Core i3s will only consist of four Golden Cove cores, and no Gracemont cores.

The Core i3-12100 and 12300 have boost clocks of 4.3GHz and 4.4GHz, respectively. Both chips come with 12MB of L3 cache, and a max power rating of 77W. (https://morrisvillecathospital.com/) Given the pricing of past Core i3 offerings, you can expect these to be priced somewhere between $120-150.

Looking at the benchmarks themselves, the Core i3-12300 is as much as 33% faster than the Ryzen 3 3300X in the single-threaded tests while being a bit less than 30% faster in multi-threaded workloads. The Core i3-12100 is a smidge slower than the 12300 with an average delta of just 2-3% between the two SKUs.

Owing to the 65W TDP, the quad-core Alder Lake parts peak at just 60 degrees with the stock cooler in the AIDA64 FPU test. The normal temps should be even lower.
