Intel Core i7 12700KF:
This processor doesn’t have iGPU that’s why makes it more fast and good at overclocking. Also, this processor is a bit faster than the normal Core i7 12700k
|Cinebench R23 (Single-Core)||1964|
|Cinebench R23 (Multi-Core)||22839|
For decent Gaming-Performance, you should make sure you are above 1000 Cinebench R23 Single-Core Points, and this processor just smashed the other processors in the new record-breaking scores of Cinebench R23 Single-Core 1964. In 3D rendering the higher the Multi-Core Score. The better the performance you will see. Anything above 20k+ Multi-Core Points will boost the performance and will render complex scenes in less time. And this processor scores 22839. This will also help in gaming. As most of you will know that the more the single-core scores are faster will it open and close the applications. The multicore will also help in rendering and in gaming. This processor has the speed of whapping 5.0GHz and can be overclocked further with precautions.
|Geekbench 5 (Single-Core)||1957|
|Geekbench 5 (Multi-Core)||14344|
Geekbench 5 Test system’s potential for gaming, image processing, and video editing with the Compute Benchmark. This also tests your GPU’s power with support for the CUDA, OpenCL, and Metal APIs. This processor scores the best in the Geekbench 5. This processor also beats some of the latest and most powerful processors with new record-breaking scores of single cores and multi-core performance. The single-core scores are 1957, and the multi-core scores are 14344. As you guys know. The higher the Geekbench 5 score the higher performance of the processor. Geekbench 5 score that is twice as high will mean the processor is twice as powerful. Ranking of single-core processors by Geekbench 5 score performance worldwide 2022.

Intel Core i7 12700KF is a desktop processor produced by Intel. This processor supports the socket LGA-1700. This processor has 12 cores and 20 threads. The base clock frequency of the Intel Core i7 12700KF is 3600 MHz, but with the new Turbo Boost technology, it can go up to 5000MHz. The size of the L3 cache is whapping 25 MB. This chip has also integrated graphics Intel UHD Graphics 770. The instruction set architecture is based on x64 and can support x86. As the x64 will make more bandwidth then this x64 will be the best choice. This processor can be more powerful if you chose the right motherboard for it. Because this processor can be overclocked. But I would say no to overclocking because 5.0GHz is enough for today’s gaming and editing. This processor is so fast that it can beat some of the most powerful and latest processors. This processor also has some of the most amazing speeds.
|Base Frequency||3.6 GHz|
|Turbo Boost Frequency||5 GHz|
|Bus frequency||100 MHz|
|L1 Cache||64K (per core)|
|L2 Cache||12MB (shared)|
|L3 Cache||25MB (shared)|
This processor has 12 cores and has 20 threads with a base clock of 3.6GHz and, a boost clock of 5.0GHz. The bus frequency is 100MHz. which will help PCI lanes in terms of performance. This processor is also unlocked with a multiplier of 36x. This will help in overclocking this processor with the right amount of power consumption. This processor has the fastest L1, L2, and L3 cache memories. The L1 cache memory is 64K per core which means 16 cores have their L1 cache memories. The L2 cache memory is 12MB but it’s shared with the Ram. The L3 cache memory is also 30MB which is also shared with the system. If you are looking for the best value processor, then this Intel Core i7 12700KF is the best choice. In terms of gaming, this processor performs very great with good compatibility with the Nvidia GPU and with the AMD GPU. In terms of video editing and graphics rendering this processor also shows the best performance. Because of its base clock of 3.6GHz and the boost clock of 5.0GHz.
|Fabrication process||10 nm|
This processor has the same power consumption as the Intel Intel Core i7 12700KF and the Intel Intel Core i7 12700KFF. This processor is based on 10Nm process fabrication. The TDP shows 125W of power consumption. This processor can also be overclocked. So, you can increase the voltage in the motherboard interface, if the motherboard supports the unlocked processors. The most amazing fact about this processor is that the max temperature support of this processor is 100C which is awesome. You can play games as long as you want and this will not affect the speeds or any thermal throttling issues if you have a good CPU cooler or water cooler. Sometimes when this processor takes a bunch of loaded applications then the processor increases the speeds of each core to the needs. This increases power consumption, thus making the CPU hotter.
|Memory types||DDR5-4800, DDR4-3200|
|Max. Memory Channels||2|
|Max. Memory Bandwidth||76.8 GB/s|
Intel Core i7 12700KF can support the DDR5 Ram with a memory frequency of 4800MHz, and DDR4 with 3200MHz. the max memory support of this Intel Core i7 12700KF is 128GB. The max memory channel support is also 2. The max memory bandwidth is also 76.8 GB/s which is incredibly fast compared to AMD. There is no ECC support on this Intel Core i7 12700KF.
This processor is a good option for gamers. Considering its capabilities, it performs well in almost any situation like editing, gaming, rendering, streaming, etc. So, if you are looking for a processor under $400 then I highly recommend to by this processor because it doesn’t have any alternatives. You got 12 cores, 24 threads, and a boost clock of 5.0GHz. This will play every game at high FPS with a good combination of Graphics card and Ram. You will see no issues in the performance unless there is a bottleneck. So, to avoid that, I will make complete another article on the best compatible Ram, storage, and GPU for this processor. Just let me know in the comment.
So, this was my review of the Intel Core i7 12700KF. If you guys learned something new then make sure to check out my other articles in the review, as well as my YouTube channel.
