Intel has just formally introduced the presence of their 12th generation processor line with a new processor design.
Intel has just announced the latest line of processors, namely the 12th generation Intel Core. On this occasion, they bring some of the newest generation of processors with many exciting features, both for gamers, creators, or daily users.
One of their flagship processors is the Intel Core i9-12900K. It is the company’s best mainstream processor, offering the best performance for all users.
The company said it is currently preparing a total of 60 processors for the 12th generation processor family. These processors will use Intel 7 fabrication technology, which has a TDP ranging from 9W to 125W.
What’s interesting is that the 12th generation Intel processor line uses chipset technology consisting of Performance-cores (P-cores), which will handle heavy workloads, and Efficient-cores (E-cores), which handle light workloads.
“The performance hybrid architecture of the 12th Intel Core processor is an architectural leap that can be achieved thanks to the close co-engineering between software and hardware that results in far superior performance compared to previous generations,” said Intel Executive Vice President and General Manager Client Computing Group. Gregory Bryant.
This American company is also preparing new technology to handle its hybrid processors. They use Intel Thread Director, enabling the two new core microarchitectures to work seamlessly by guiding the OS to place the correct thread on the right core at the right time.
For the specifications alone, the Intel Core i9-12900K will have a total of 16 cores and 24 threads. There will be a total of 8 P-Core with 16 threads, and a total of 8 E-Core with 8 threads in this one processor.
Users will get an FPS increase of up to 25% in the game Troy: A Total War Saga, an FPS increase of up to 28% more in the Hitman 3 game, and an FPS increase of up to 23% in the game Far Cry 6 when compared to its predecessor.
The gaming experience is also enhanced by Intel Killer Wi-Fi 6E, which results in up to 75% reduced latency while gaming while multitasking. So, gamers have the option to play games wirelessly without worrying about lag.
For streamers, they will get the best performance because high-frequency P-cores will handle the game fully while E-cores can perform various tasks in parallel, so users will get FPS increased up to 84% when gaming, streaming—and recording simultaneously.
Meanwhile, with faster DDR5 RAM, users will also get increased performance for creative applications. Users will get up to 36% faster photo editing performance, up to 32% faster video editing, up to 37% faster 3D modeling, and up to 100% faster multi-frame rendering.
Users will also get better-overclocking capabilities. They can use Intel Extreme Tuning Utility (XTU) 7.5, which can apply the best overclocks automatically and also comes with Intel Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) 3.0.
Comes with a new chipset and socket
However, to run this processor, users cannot use the previous platform. Because, Intel is preparing a 600 series chipset platform with a 1700 socket, which is different from the last socket generation.
However, by using this new chipset, users will get DDR5 RAM support with speeds up to 4800MT/s and comes with PCIe 5.0 (up to 16 lanes), which offers up to twice the I/O throughput of PCIe 4.0, with an additional up to four lanes thanks to supporting PCIe 4.0.
As for availability, the 12th generation Intel Core lineup will be present on November 4 in 30 countries at once. Users can buy this processor with prices ranging from USD 264 to USD 589.
