Intel 12th-generation desktop CPU expand to 28 models: Celeron also powerful!
Intel 12th-generation desktop CPU expand to 28 models: Celeron also powerful! Intel’s 12th-generation CPU launched as many as 28 models.
On the desktop, after the first 6 K/KF series overclockable models, Intel today also completed the 12th generation of CPU, up to i9, down to Celeron, there are as many as 22 models, and the entire family has reached the same 28.
Specifically including –
- Three i9 models: i9-12900, i9-12900F, i9-12900T
- Three i7 models: i7-12700, i7-12700F, i7-12700T
- Seven i5 models: i5-12600, i5-12600T, i5-12500, i5-12500T, i5-12400, i5-12400F, i5-12400T
- Five i3 models: i3-12300, i3-12300T, i3-12100, i3-12100F, i3-12100T
- Two Pentium: Pentium G7400, G7400T
- Celeron two models: Celeron G6900, G6900T
The specific specifications of each model will not be interpreted one by one, but the familiar product line layout, let’s summarize:
Number of cores:
The i9 and i7 series are both large and small core hybrid architectures (C0), including the previous i5-12600K/12600KF. The i5 series and below have only large cores (H0), and all support hyperthreading except Celeron.
Specifically, i9 is 8 big and 8 small, i7 is 8 big and 4 small, i5 is 6 big, i3 is 4 big, and Pentium/Celeron is 2 big.
i9 14MB, i7 12MB, i5 7.5MB, i3 5MB, Pentium/Celeron 2.5MB.
i9 30MB, i7 25MB, i5 18MB, i3 12MB, Pentium 6MB, Celeron 4MB.
Both i9 and i7 large CPU support Turbo Frequency Max 3.0, of which the large core can reach up to 5.1GHz and the small core can reach up to 3.8GHz.
Both i5 and i3 support Turbo Boost 3.0, while Pentium and Celeron continue to not support Turbo Boost.
There is almost no change between this generation and the 11th generation, mainly because the name has been upgraded. Of course, the F series has no nuclear display.
i9, i7, i5-12600/12500 series are all UHD 770 (32 units), i5-12400 series, i3 are all UHD 730, Pentium, Celeron are all UHD 710.
Unified support for dual-channel DDR5-4800, DDR4-3200, with a maximum capacity of 128GB, Celeron has not been downgraded.
Unified support for 20 PCIe 5.0, Celeron is no exception.
Baseline power consumption:
In the standard version, i9, i7, and i5 are all 65W, i3 60W, but i3-12100F 58W, Pentium and Celeron are all 46W.
The energy-saving versions of the T series are all 35W.
Maximum acceleration power consumption:
In the standard version, i9 202W, i7 180W, i5 117W, i3 89W.
In the energy-saving version, i9 106W, i7 99W, i5 74W, i3 69W.
Pentium and Celeron do not have this indicator because they do not support Turbo Boost.
Currently only prices in North America, the reference value is not very large.
The most concerned i5-12400 and i5-12400F are respectively 192 US dollars and 167 US dollars.
In terms of performance, the official said that the content creation of the i9-12900 is up to 55% higher than the previous i9-11900, and the game performance is up to 21% higher.
Compared with competing products, it is strange that i9-12900 and i5-12600 are used to play Ryzen 7 5700G, but only the productivity and content creation are compared, and there is no comparison.
At the same time, Intel also officially released three new original radiators, from low to high:
Very simple, used for Pentium and Celeron.
The copper core at the bottom and a blue strip at the top are said to have a low noise of 3.9 decibels, used for i7, i5, and i3.
A large area of copper core at the bottom, copper cooling fins, ARGB lighting effects can be customized, the noise is as low as only 2.6 decibels, used for i9.
