Intel 12th-generation desktop Core expands 28 models: Celeron does not shrink

On the mobile side, Intel’s 12th-generation Core Duo launched as many as 28 products in one go.

On the desktop, after the first 6 K/KF series overclockable models, Intel today also completed the 12th generation of Core Duo, up to i9, down to Celeron, there are as many as 22 models, and the entire family has reached the same 28. payment.

Specifically including –

Three i9 models: Core i9-12900, i9-12900F, i9-12900T

Three i7 models: Core i7-12700, i7-12700F, i7-12700T

Seven i5 models: Core i5-12600, i5-12600T, i5-12500, i5-12500T, i5-12400, i5-12400F, i5-12400T

Five i3 models: Core 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. It is still a familiar product line layout. Let’s summarize and see:

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.

Secondary cache:

i9 14MB, i7 12MB, i5 7.5MB, i3 5MB, Pentium/Celeron 2.5MB.

Three-level cache:

i9 30MB, i7 25MB, i5 18MB, i3 12MB, Pentium 6MB, Celeron 4MB.


Both i9 and i7 large cores support Turbo Frequency Max 3.0, with large cores up to 5.1GHz and small cores up to 3.8GHz.

Both i5 and i3 support Turbo Boost 3.0, while Pentium and Celeron continue to not support Turbo Boost.

Nuclear display:

There is almost no change between this generation and the 11th generation. The main reason is that 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.

Because Pentium and Celeron do not support Turbo Boost, they do not have this indicator.


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. The Bank of China should be around 1,300 yuan, with B660 motherboards, DDR4 memory, and a word of fragrant.

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:

Laminar RS1:

Very simple, used for Pentium and Celeron.

Laminar RM1:

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.

Laminar RH1:

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.
