Intel 12 Gen Processors

CES 2022: Intel introduces 12th Gen core mobile processors

Chipmaker Intel continues its introduction of what it calls industry-leading mobile performance with the launch of all-new 12th Gen Intel Core H-series mobile processors led by the Intel Core i9-12900HK at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

The company calls the new processors “the fastest mobile processor ever created.”

“Intel‘s new performance hybrid architecture is helping to accelerate the pace of innovation and the future of computing,” said Gregory Bryant, EVP and GM of Intel’s Client Computing Group. “And, with the introduction of 12th Gen Intel Core mobile processors, we are unlocking new experiences and setting the standard of performance with the fastest processor for a laptop – ever.”

By pairing Performance-cores (P-cores) and Efficient-cores (E-cores) with intelligent workload prioritization and management distribution through Intel Thread Directoriii, the new Intel Core i9-12900HK improves system performance across single and multi-threaded applications.

The new 12th Gen H-series processors have up to 5 GHz frequencies, 14 cores (6 P-cores and 8 E-cores), and 20 threads which makes the 12th Gen Intel Core i9-12900HK “the fastest mobile processor.” The performance extends for unparalleled gaming experiences across top gaming titles and content creation tools.

The new 12th Gen Intel Core H-series delivers up to 28% faster gaming than the previous one available in the market: the Intel Core i9-11980HK. 12th Gen Intel Core. Intel said users may see up to 43% higher performance in 3D rendering gen-over-gen.

The new processors deliver nearly three times faster connectivity on exclusive high-speed channels without legacy Wi-Fi interference. Using integrated Intel Wi-Fi 6E (Gig+)v gives users the freedom to work and learn from home and relax with smooth, high-quality streaming.

The new 12th Gen Intel Core H-series mobile processors will power systems available starting February 2022.

Built to take on simultaneous everyday workloads, business productivity and even gaming in full high definition (FHD), these 12th Gen Intel Core U- and P-series mobile processors will be available in the first quarter of 2022, including devices designed for both Windows and Chrome operating systems.

12th Gen Intel Core Desktop processor

Intel added 22 new products to the 12th Gen Intel Core desktop processor family and range from Intel Core i9 to Pentium and Celeron. These processors (65-watt and 35-watt) deliver scalable power and great performance for gaming, creation, and productivity. Intel also introduced new Intel Laminar Coolers that accompany the new 65-watt processors.

Intel introduced the new Intel H670, H610, and B660 chipsets that will support broad consumer processors. The new chipset options deliver many of the great Z-series platform capabilities, like PCIe 4.0 lanes, integrated Intel Wi-Fi 6E (Gig+) and Intel Volume Management Device (VMD) – as well as support for memory and processor overclocking.

Intel Evo

The launch of 12th Gen Intel Core mobile processors also ushers in updates to the Intel Evo platform for laptops and other on-the-go form factors, verified to the third-edition specification and key experience indicators of Intel’s Project Athena innovation program. More than 100 co-engineered designs with 12th Gen Intel Core mobile processors — including new foldable displays and, for the first time, H-series in addition to U- and P-series — are expected to start passing Intel Evo verification, and most will be available for purchase in the first half of 2022.
