Divide and conquer.
Intel’s new performance hybrid architecture integrates two core families into a single CPU, keeping everything in your gaming universe running smoothly.
6 Performance-cores – P-cores are built for performance across single and lightly-threaded workloads, enhancing activities like gaming and productivity.
4 Efficient-cores – E-cores are optimized for multi-threaded performance, minimizing interruptions from secondary tasks.
Intel® Thread Director – Prioritizes and manages workloads, sending tasks to the best core for the job.

Performance beyond the cores.
The new processor architecture is also compatible with the latest platform innovations, giving you performance improvements throughout your PC.
Ready for what’s next – Support for PCIe Gen 5 and DDR5 for high-performance components like memory and graphics.
Best-in-class connectivity -Thunderbolt™ 4 and Intel® Killer™ Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+) deliver fast transfer speeds and connections to peripherals.5
Streamlined overclocking – Separate overclocking controls for both types of cores gives you nuanced personalization.

Performance that puts gaming first.
Compete with confidence or get immersed in new worlds with a revolutionary processor architecture that focuses on what matters most – gaming.

Motherboard compatibility: 600 series
Total CPU PCIe lanes: 20

Intel’s 12th generation CPUs mark a shift in the company’s approach to processor design. It describes Alder Lake as a ‘hybrid’ architecture with Alder new chips featuring a combination of ‘P-cores’ and ‘E-cores’ rather than the standard homogenous core layout we’re accustomed to with previous generations.

Short for performance cores, are designed for tasks such as gaming and productivity workloads and are the closest thing to the standard core model.

Short for efficient cores, handle background tasks while running at a lower clock speed with lower power consumption.

The new chips will be the first to support DDR5 RAM and PCIe 5 which should make them perfect partners for the best gaming RAM and best SSDs of the future.

12th Gen Intel® Core™ i5-12600KF unlocked desktop processor, without processor graphics.
Featuring PCIe Gen 5.0 & 4.0 support, DDR5 & DDR4 support, unlocked 12th Gen Intel® Core­™ desktop processors are optimized for productivity, gaming, and overclocking. Discrete graphics required.
Thermal solution NOT included in the box.
Compatible with 600 series chipset based motherboards.
