8 on Efficient-cores
Unlocked & Overclockable2
* Discrete Graphics Card Required

Divide and conquer.

Intel’s new performance hybrid  architecture integrates two core families into a single CPU, keeping everything in your gaming universe running smoothly.

Intel® Thread Director

Prioritises and manages workloads, sending tasks to the best core for the job.3

8 Performance-cores

P-cores are built for performance across single and lightly-threaded workloads, enhancing activities like gaming and productivity.

8 Efficient-cores

E-cores are optimised for multi-threaded performance, minimising interruptions from secondary tasks.

Performance beyond the cores.

The new processor architecture is also compatible with the latest platform innovations, giving you performance improvements throughout your PC.

Ready for what’s next

Support for PCIe Gen 5 and DDR5 for high-performance components like memory and graphics.

Best-in-class connectivity

Thunderbolt™ 4 and Intel® Killer™ Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+) delivers fast transfer speeds and connections to peripherals.4

Push past the limit with overclocking.

Increase processing power by fine-tuning your system to run your processor at higher settings2 to improve frame rates and achieve smoother gameplay. Separate overclocking controls for both types of cores gives you nuanced personalisation.

1. On performance cores. Performance varies by use, configuration, and other factors. Learn more at www.Intel.com/PerformanceIndex.
2. Unlocked features are present with select chipsets and processor combinations. Altering clock frequency or voltage may void any product warranties and reduce the stability, security, performance, and life of the processor and other components. Check with system and component manufacturers for details.
3. Intel® Thread Director is designed into 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors and helps to support operating systems to more intelligently channel workloads to the right core. No user action is required. See intel.com for details.
4. Visit intel.com/performanceindex (connectivity) for more details.
