Revolutionary Performance & Multitasking

The Intel Core i7-12700K Processor is 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. With the highest clock speeds and a groundbreaking new architecture, you’ll be able to push your gameplay to new heights while secondary apps run seamlessly in the background.

Divide & Conquer

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 prioritizes and manages workloads, sending tasks to the best core for the job. 8 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.

Performance Beyond The Cores

The new processor architecture is also compatible with the latest platform innovations, giving you performance improvements throughout your PC. You’ll always be ready for what’s next with support for PCIe Gen 5 and DDR5 for high-performance components like memory and graphics.

Best-In-Class Connectivity

Thunderbolt 4 technology and Intel Killer Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+) deliver fast transfer speeds and connections to peripherals.

Streamlined Overclocking

Separate overclocking controls for both types of cores gives you nuanced personalization.
