Intel Alder Lake-S alias Core i-12000 is the expected big step for Intel in many areas in the form of the first three models Core i9-12900K, Core i7-12700K and Core i5-12600K.
The CPUs offer much more performance in almost all disciplines than their predecessors, the IPC increase in the P-Cores also ensures very good results, especially in single-core scenarios and games - over 40 percent growth in single-core benchmarks Within less than two years / generations, of which almost 20 compared to its direct predecessor, Intel has returned to first place in both disciplines. Multi-core scenarios also benefit from additional threads.
In the end, Alder Lake-S won the gaming crown with the fast, but thirsty and very large P-Cores. The gains are not only clear compared to the predecessor, the competitor is also kept in check almost everywhere. One year after the market launch of Ryzen 5000 at the upper end of the range, however, that was also necessary. The bottom line is that Intel Alder Lake-S is still a big hit for Intel. The CPUs bring significantly more life to the market than previous models and with the price advantage especially compared to the 12 and 16 core Ryzen from competitor AMD.
The question of the right mainboard for Alder Lake-S with the new LGA 1700 socket is quickly clarified today: DDR4 is not only more than sufficient, but in many cases even faster than DDR5 and in the end it is definitely much cheaper in the overall package. Even slightly overclocked DDR5 memory doesn't stand a chance against the solid DDR4-3200 setups.

Together with the addressable ENERMAX SquA RGB fans, AQUAFUSION can create a dynamic visual experience via the mainboard software or the included control box. The ENERMAX SquA RGB fans generate a strong, centered air pressure through the Vortex frame construction in order to quickly dissipate the heat from the cooler. Thanks to the dual-chamber design patented by ENERMAX, the Central Coolant Inlet (CCI) and the Shunt Channel Technology (SCT), the cooler achieves faster heat transfer and a longer service life. AQUAFUSION is a unique cooling solution for special gaming rigs or spectacular system builds for Intel and AMD CPUs.
AQUAFUSION is an all-in-one CPU water cooler with pre-filled coolant. This makes a water cooler as simple as a regular air cooler. Easy installation and no maintenance. The fully sealed design ensures minimal liquid evaporation and long service life.
With colorful lighting and quiet cooling, AQUAFUSION is best suited for case mods and gaming systems.
The patented two-chamber design isolates the pump from the heated coolant and extends the life of the radiator. The cold coolant enters the first chamber with the pump and is then pushed through the cold plate to absorb the heat. The heated coolant is collected in the second chamber and then transported to the radiator for cooling.
Central Coolant Inlet (CCI) injects the coolant in the center above the CPU and distributes it evenly across the cold plate using patented Shunt Channel Technology (SCT). The result is a shorter coolant flow path and faster heat transfer.
The premium RGB water block with 3D layered design and Aurabelt™ lighting is capable of creating colorful rainbow effects with 16.8 million colors. Synchronizable RGB lighting is possible via addressable RGB headers on Asus, Asrock, MSI and Gigabyte motherboards.
ENERMAX SquA RGB fans support addressable RGB technology for a unique RGB lighting experience. The fan is equipped with a vortex frame that can generate a centered, stronger air pressure that is optimized for radiators. The frame of SquA RGB is equipped with rubber damping pads to prevent vibration transmission to the case.

Microsoft Windows 10 Professional 64Bit, pre-installed with all necessary device drivers. Switch on and get started!
The launch of Windows 10 and the associated developments are among the most important market launches in Microsoft's corporate history. Windows 10 not only brings a new version of the operating system onto the market, Windows 10 enables a new platform generation:
"We want to ensure that we offer developers the largest and most vibrant user base for their applications," said Satya Nadella in his opening keynote at BUILD 2015 in San Francisco. Windows 10 is now available in 190 countries and 111 languages.
The browser is really new in Windows 10: Edge replaces Internet Explorer. The new browser doesn't just have the cooler name. It is also much faster. In almost all browser benchmarks, Edge depends on IE 11 from Windows 8.1. It can almost double its pace in Mozilla's Kraken benchmark. It looks the same in Google's Octane 2.0 test. Its pace remains roughly the same in the Sunspider test and the Peacekeeper benchmark. Conclusion: When it comes to the browser speed, Windows 10 with Edge catches up a lot. In Kraken and Octane, Edge overtakes the competition, in the Sunspider he stays ahead. The old conditions are only preserved in the Peacekeeper test.
Microsoft already shortened the start times of Windows extremely with Windows 8. If the computer is switched off using "Shut down", it does not switch itself off, but only goes into hibernation - from which it can wake up more quickly. Even with a real Katlstart or restart, Windows 8.1 is slightly slower: However, over time, Windows remembers the files that it needs for the start: The start time is shortened with repeated starts. After ten starts, the two operating systems were almost on par with 20 seconds (Windows 10) and 22 seconds (Windows 8.1).
Windows is actually getting faster and faster the older it gets: For most components, manufacturers are releasing ever more up-to-date drivers that accelerate the hardware. Windows feels like it is getting slower and slower: This is mostly due to the fact that the autostart folder is filling up with more and more entries, more and more tools are running in the background and more and more programs that are no longer used are littering the memory. The performance tests show hardly any difference between Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Sometimes one system is faster, sometimes the other. But all the results are so closely related - with less than three percent difference - that no difference is noticeable in practice. This also applies to tests such as Cinebench R15, which primarily check the processor performance. Even if we repeated the tests several times, nothing changed: When saving and buffering frequently used files, nothing seems to have changed between Windows 8.1 and 10. Conclusion: When it comes to hardware performance, Windows 10 is as fast as Windows 8.1 - or vice versa. So that Windows 10 stays fast, the same rules apply as always with Windows: Install the latest drivers and keep the system clean.
Windows 10 comes with the new Direct X12 3D interface. DX12 is designed to allow game programmers to use the capabilities of the GPU more efficiently. Computers with less powerful graphics cards can also benefit from this and display graphically complex games more smoothly. At the moment, the potential of DX12 can only be demonstrated using synthetic benchmarks such as the API overhead test. Conclusion: Windows 10 has the potential to accelerate games on weaker systems thanks to the DX12. But the concrete results will only show games that use DX12. The first should appear at the end of the year.
Windows 10 lays a good foundation: the hardware manufacturers have to use this to tease out a performance plus with improved drivers. Or in the case of Direct X12 game programmers who use the capabilities of the new interface in games.
