Intel Core i9-12900KS

Take the next evolutionary leap. Powered by the performance hybrid architecture, which, for the first time in a desktop processor, incorporates two types of cores — Performance cores (P-cores) and Efficient cores (E-cores) — in a single processor, the 12th Gen Intel Core processors deliver optimized single-thread performance and multi-tasking efficiency for complicated modern workloads. The 12th Gen also ushers in DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 for a new level of platform performance.

The Intel Core i9-12900KS features 16 cores (8 P-cores and 8 E-cores) and insane 5.5 GHz max turbo frequency, making it the ultimate processor for gamers, content creators and more who want the fastest performance.
