From a series of new processors introduced, the Intel Core i9-12900K is the main star and is claimed to be the best gaming processor in the world. Like what?
Intel Core i9-12900K
The Core i9-12900K is a 16-core 24-threads processor with a maximum turbo boost of up to 5.2GHz. Its multi-threaded performance promises to be able to set a new standard for enthusiast gamers and professional creators.
This processor promises 25 percent higher FPS in Troy: A Total War Saga, 28 percent higher FPS in Hitman 3, and up to 23 percent higher in Far Cry 6. Supported by Intel Killer Wi-Fi 6E, the latency will be 75 percent lower when playing games.
Please note that the 12th generation Intel Core processor line already carries the Intel 7 (10nm) fabrication. These processors consist of P-cores or Performance-cores for heavy work, and E-cores or Efficient-cores for more power-efficient performance.
Intel 12th generation processors can later be paired to new platforms with socket LGA1700 and Intel 600 Series chipsets. In addition to the Core i9-12900K, there are also 5 other processors, namely Core i9-12900KF, Core i7-12700K, Core i7-12700KF, Core i5-12600K, and Core i5-12600KF.
Several other important points mention, the 12th generation called Alder Lake is claimed to be the first processor in the industry to offer DDR5 memory up to 4800 MT/s, PCIe 5.0, and up to 30MB Intel Smart Cache (L3) and 14MB L2 cache.
