Breakthrough Core Technology
In a game-changing advance for core performance, 12th Gen Intel® Core™ desktop processors power a revolutionary approach to the x86 architecture. Its Performance-cores—or “P-cores”—are optimized for single & lightly-threaded performance, while its Efficient-cores—or “E-cores”—are optimized for scaling highly-threaded workloads. Intel® Thread Director helps to monitor and analyze performance data in real-time to seamlessly place the right application thread on the right core and optimize performance per watt. That means gamers, creators, and professionals can harness both intelligence and power to enhance the experiences that matter most.
