Built for the Next Generation of Gaming
The 12th Generation of Intel Core Processors are here! The i5-12600K allows you to compete with confidence or get immersed in new worlds with a revolutionary processor architecture that focuses on what matters more - Gaming! This processor is unlocked and overclockable for you to be able to unleash extreme performance. The 12th Generations CPU's are compatible with most 600 series motherboards and support PCIe Gen 5, you can also take advantage of DDR5 memory and great features like Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0.
Performance That Puts Gaming First
Intel's new performance hybrid architecture integrates two core families into a single CPU, keeping everything in your gaming universe running smoothly. The Intel Thread Director prioritses and manages workloads, sending tasks to the best core for the job.
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.
Ready For What's Next
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 graphics.
Thunderbolt 4 and Intel Killer Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+) deliver fast transfer speeds and connections to peripherals.
Separate overclocking controls for both types of cores gives you nuanced personalization.
