Intel's new flagship Alder Lake CPU has been spotted inside of a new unreleased, unannounced ASUS ROG Strix Z690 motherboard.
The new Intel Core i9-12900K processor was spotted on the PugetBenchmark website, with the Alder Lake-S flagship chip inside of a next-gen Z690 motherboard made by ASUS. The mobo in question is the ASUS ROG Strix Z690-E Gaming Wi-Fi motherboard, which packed a huge 64GB of DDR5-4800 RAM.
PugetBenchmark's own website has in-house reviews of the latest gear on the market, with the Core i9-11900K processor tested when it was released earlier this year in March 2021. The new Core i9-12900K in these very early tests, in early form, is keeping up with the Core i9-11900K processor.
