The Core i5-12600KF does not include integrated graphics, meaning that users will need to purchase a separate dedicated graphics card. Please note that a thermal solution NOT is included. The processor is compatible with Intel LGA 1700 socket motherboards and is backed by a 3-year warranty.

Hybrid Core Design

Background tasks are handled by the processor's Efficient-cores for multitasking while the Performance-cores provide the speed to handle high-end games and demanding applications.

Intel Thread Director

The Intel Thread Director is built into the CPU's cores, working with the operating system to ensure each of the 16 threads are assigned to the right core at the right time.

PCIe 4.0 & 5.0

This processor supports up to four PCIe 4.0 and sixteen PCIe 5.0 lanes, delivering 20 lanes in total for exceptional data throughput with compatible devices.

Intel Deep Learning Boost

Accelerates AI inference to improve performance for deep learning workloads.

Gaussian & Neural Accelerator 3.0

Gaussian and Neural Accelerator 3.0 (GNA) technology helps with noise suppression while enhancing background blurring during video chats.

Intel i5-12600KF Reviews

So far so good

It's been running well. I have the z690 tuf gaming motherboard. The only thing worth mentioning is that when installing the cpu on to the motherboard it was making some creaking noise which made me extremely nervous that I would crack the cpu. It didn't crack and it's been running ever since (2 weeks).
