Divide and conquer.

Intel’s new performance hybrid  architecture integrates two core families into a single CPU, keeping everything in your gaming universe running smoothly.

Intel® Thread Director

Prioritises and manages workloads, sending tasks to the best core for the job.4

8 Performance-cores

P-cores are built for performance across single and lightly-threaded workloads, enhancing activities like gaming and productivity.

8 Efficient-cores

E-cores are optimised for multi-threaded performance, minimising 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.

Ready for what’s next

Support for PCIe Gen 5 and DDR5 for high-performance components like memory and graphics.

Best-in-class connectivity

Thunderbolt™ 4 and Intel® Killer™ Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+) deliver fast transfer speeds and connections to peripherals.5

Push past the limit with overclocking.

Increase processing power by fine-tuning your system to run your processor at higher settings3 to improve frame rates and achieve smoother gameplay. Separate overclocking controls for both types of cores gives you nuanced personalisation.

1. Max Turbo Frequency is the maximum single-core frequency at which the processor is capable of operating using Intel® Turbo Boost Technology and, if present, Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 and Intel® Thermal Velocity Boost. Intel® Thermal Velocity Boost (Intel® TVB) is a feature that opportunistically and automatically increases clock frequency above single-core and multi-core Intel® Turbo Boost Technology frequencies based on how much the processor is operating below its maximum temperature and whether turbo power budget is available. The frequency gain and duration is dependent on the workload, capabilities of the processor and the processor cooling solution. For more details on Core i9 12900KS specifications, refer to ark.intel.com Intel® Core™ i9-12900KS is a special edition of Intel® Core™ i9-12900K, with even better frequencies.
2. On performance cores. Performance varies by use, configuration and other factors. Learn more at www.Intel.com/PerformanceIndex.
3. Unlocked features are present with select chipsets and processor combinations. Altering clock frequency or voltage may void any product warranties and reduce stability, security, performance, and life of the processor and other components. Check with system and component manufacturers for details.
4. Intel® Thread Director is designed into 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors and helps supporting operating systems to more intelligently channel workloads to the right core. No user action required. See intel.com for details.
