The August 2012 FIDE rating list marks a move to monthly releases for the list. Magnus Carlsen is still top having played no games. In fact only three players had rated games Sergey Karjakin gained 6 points to move above Anand. Caruana and Kramnik dropped a couple of points apiece but didn't move in the ranking. Carlsen will have to wait until September for his Biel results to appear. He is closing in on Kasparov's 2851 record but would require 2/2 to break it which seems unlikely. Wang Hao lost 13 points in this list but is doing a good job in Biel to rectify that.
