The introduction of six new unlocked desktop CPUs, including the world’s best gaming processor, the 12th Gen Intel Core i9-12900K, Intel introduced the 12th Gen Intel® CoreTM processor family. The new desktop processors reach new heights of multi-threaded performance for expert gamers and professional creators, with a maximum turbo boost of up to 5.2 GHz and as many as 16 cores and 24 threads.
Unlocked 12th Gen Desktop Processors for Gaming, Creation, and Overclocking
All six unlocked desktop processors announced today are the first to include Intel’s performance hybrid architecture, which mixes Performance-cores (P-cores), Intel’s highest-performing CPU core, with Efficient-cores (E-cores), which are optimized for scalable multi-threaded task performance.
Intel® Threads Director enables the operating system (OS) to place the relevant thread on the right core at the right time, allowing the two new core create the product to function together smoothly. Intel has collaborated with the ecosystem on prototype to improve performance and stability, and as part of the company’s increased involvement in the developer community, Intel has launched the Intel Developer Platform.recently released white papers for developers that explain how independent software providers may optimise apps on hybrid platforms.
The Best Gaming Processor in the World:
The new 12th Gen Intel Core processor family also includes the world’s greatest gaming CPU, the Core i9-12900K, which delivers gaming experiences across top games with up to 16 cores and 24 threads. Intel Core i9-12900K delivers incredible gen-over-gen performance, with up to 25% more frames per second in Troy: A Total War Saga, up to 28% more frames per second in Hitman , and up to 23% more frames per second in Far Cry 63. For gaming and multitasking, Intel® KillerTM Wi-Fi 6E provides up to 75 % reduced latency. , for combined gaming, streaming, and recording, high-frequency P-cores combined with E-cores for offloading multiple operations offer up to 84 percentage points higher frames per second.
A Significant Improvement in Content Creation Efficiency:
Multi-threaded performance, responsive P-core performance, and the ability to send data at remarkable rates with DDR5 enable leadership in many sorts of content production experiences, including:
Faster photo editing performance by up to 36%
Video editing performance is up to 32% better.
3D modelling performance that is up to 37% higher
Multi-frame rendering is up to 100 percent faster.
The Most Extensive Overclocking Experience:
These new CPUs provide industry-leading overclocking features, such as the ability to overclock Efficient-cores and DDR5 memory, for maximum performance customization. As part of the newest Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility (XTU) 7.5, users and gamers may try out these new platform overclocking options. For unlocked 12th Gen CPUs, XTU will offer one-click overclocking with Intel Speed Optimizer effective with the Core i9-12900K. Intel also released Intel® Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) 3.0, which includes support for DDR5 and includes new based on level custom profiles as well as flexible memory overclocking settings.
Offering Industry-Leading Features to Desktop Platforms
For now and future, 12th Gen Intel Core desktop CPUs provide excellent performance and industry-leading features for exceptional gaming, entertainment, and play experiences.
The following are some of the most significant platform enhancements:
➧The industry’s first CPUs to support DDR5 memory speeds of up to 4800MT/s.
➧The industry’s first processors to enable PCIe 5.0 (up to 16 lanes), which provides up to 2X I/O throughput over PCIe 4.0 and up to four extra PCIe 4.0 lanes.
➧Intel® Smart Cache (L3) of up to 30MB and 14MB L2 cache for improved memory capacity and lower latency.
➧Intel Killer Wi-Fi 6E provides integrated high-speed wireless, integrating industry-leading Wi-Fi 6E connection with strong gaming network technologies to reduce lag, latency, and packet loss.
➧External device expansion with a discrete Thunderbolt 4 universal cable.
