We received a package with Intel marketing materials featuring two of the upcoming SKUs.

The materials confirm the specifications of both processors, including core/thread count and their maximum boost frequencies. It is therefore confirmed (once again) that Core i7-12700K will be a 12-core CPU with 20 threads and 25MB of total cache. This SKU will feature a base clock for Efficient cores of 2.7 GHz and boost up to 3.8 GHz. The 12700K’s Performance cores will be clocked within 3.6 GHz to 5.0 GHz, according to the leak.

Intel Core i5-12600K will be a 10-core CPU with 16-threads clocked up to 4.9 GHz for Performance cores and up to 3.6 GHz for Efficient cores. This SKU will have 20MB of total cache.

The materials go further explaining that the K-series SKUs are a perfect match for gaming and offer new overclocking features for both types of hybrid cores separately.
