Built for the next generation of gaming.
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.
4 on Efficient-cores
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.
Prioritises and manages workloads, sending tasks to the best core for the job.3
P-cores are built for performance across single and lightly-threaded workloads,
enhancing activities like gaming and productivity.
E-cores are optimised for multi-threaded performance, minimising interruptions
from secondary tasks.
Performance beyond the cores.
The new processor architecture is also compatible with the latest platform
innovations, giving you performance improvements throughout your PC.
Support for PCIe Gen 5 and DDR5 for high-performance components like memory and
Thunderbolt™ 4 and Intel® Killer™ Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+) deliver fast transfer speeds
and connections to peripherals.4
Push past the limit with overclocking.
Increase processing power by fine-tuning your system to run your processor at higher
settings2 to improve frame rates and achieve smoother gameplay. Separate
overclocking controls for both types of cores gives you nuanced personalisation.
Do you work with video?
Intel® Quick Sync Video uses the dedicated media processing capabilities of Intel®
Graphics Technology to decode and encode fast, enabling the processor to complete
other tasks and improving system responsiveness.
Note: The Intel Core i5-12600KF does not feature an iGPU. If you want to leverage
Intel Quick Sync technology you will need an i5-12600K.
