MORE DETAILS

The 12-core i7-12700K sits in the middle of Intel’s latest 12th gen. Alder Lake CPU line-up. It offers a significant performance improvement over it's predecessor (+50% 64-core). The 12700K features a new hybrid architecture which combines eight hyper-threaded performance cores with four efficiency cores for a total of 20 threads. With an MSRP of $410 USD, the 12700K offers similar real world performance to the flagship i9-12900K, at a 30% price discount. Although, by historical standards, this represents superb value for money, most consumers should consider the 10-core 16-thread i5-12600K which offers comparable real-world performance for 30% less money. [Nov '21 CPUPro]
