Intel Core i7-12700K, Core i5-12600K and MSI Z690 motherboards
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.
Furthermore, we have a new leak featuring three new MSI Z690 motherboards: Tomahawk, Pro, and Force series:
Yesterday we leaked Z690 UNIFY series, which means we now have a leak featuring as many as five MSI motherboards.
Unforutnately we are still missing the specs of the flagship i9-12900K base clock and Max Boost 3.0 frequencies, however, Thermal Velocity Boost which is exclusive to Core i9 series has been leaked before:
|Intel 12th Gen Core Series (Alder Lake-S)|
|VideoCardz||Cores / Threads||Core Type||Base Clock||Turbo Max Boost 3.0/Thermal Velocity Boost*||TDP|
