Take the next evolutionary leap with the performance hybrid architecture of 12th Generation Intel® Core i9-12900KF processors. Get the performance you need, where you need it, whether you’re a gamer, creator, streamer, or everyday user.
Whatever you’re into, do more of it, whenever you want with Intel® 12 Generation processors. With unprecedented new performance hybrid architecture, 12th Gen Intel® Core i9-12900KF processors offer a unique combination of Performance and Efficient-cores (P-core and E-core).
That means real-world performance, intuitively scaled to match whatever you’re doing.
The Performance-core is Intel’s highest-performing CPU core ever. And it’s designed to maximize single-thread performance and responsiveness for compute-intensive workloads like gaming and 3D design.
The Efficient-core delivers multithreaded performance for tasks that can run in parallel (like image rendering), along with efficient offload of background tasks for modern multitasking.
So that Performance-cores and Efficient-cores can work seamlessly with the operating system, Intel built Intel® Thread Director right into the hardware.
Automatically monitoring and analyzing on-the-fly, Intel® Thread Director guides the operating system, helping it place the right thread on the right core, at the right time. And it does it all dynamically, adapting scheduling guidance based on actual computing needs, not on static rules.
