Intel Releases Multiplier-Locked 12th Generation Core, Pentium and Celeron Processors

The 12th generation Core processors also received new 600-series chipsets as well as new Laminar-series reference solvers.

As expected, Intel unveiled a full-fledged new Alder Lake processor at CES. The multiplier-free models released last year were now followed by a total of 22 new multiplier-locked models covering the company’s processor series from the 12th generation Coresta to Pentium and Celeron.

The release of Intel’s new 12th generation Core processors came as no surprise, thanks to the multiplier-free models released last year. Although the issue was already confirmed by the leaks, perhaps the most striking thing is the lack of E-cores in and out of the Core i5 series, even though the i5-12600K and 12600KF with multipliers are still equipped with four E-cores. The Core i3 models have four P-cores and the Celeron and Pentium models have two P-cores.

As usual, Intel’s multiplier-locked models are equipped with lower TDP values ​​than the overclocking versions. Most processors are equipped with 65 watts of TDP at standard clock frequencies, but in the Core i3 series the limit is already 60 watts and in Pentium and Celeron processors 46 watts. Intel has also announced separate “Turbo-TDPs” for its processors and they are more closely tied to the processor series. For multiplier-locked Core i9 processors, it’s 202 watts, for i7 models 180 watts, for i5 models 117 watts and for the i3 series 89 watts. The lower-powered T-marked models are equipped with a standard 35-watt TDP as usual, but their Turbo-TDP also follows a similar formula: iw 106 watts, i7 99 watts, i5 74 watts and i3 69 watts. Pentium and Celeron processors do not support Turbo clock frequencies and therefore do not have Turbo-TDP. You will find the exact characteristics of the processors in the tables above.

For performance testing, Intel has picked up the Core i5-12600 and i9-12900 from its own lineup, and AMD’s Ryzen 7 5700G as its opponent. In content production, the i5 covers a 31% difference in Ryzen’s Pugetech Lightroom Classic test and a 31% difference in the Premiere Pro test, compared to 17% in the Nero test. Core i9 increases the difference to Ryzen in the same tests to 39, 43 and 37 percent. In productive work, the differences are partly parallel and partly smaller. In the SYSmark 25, the difference between the i5 and Ryzen is 19% and 30% for the i9, 30% and 44% for the CrossMark, 8% and 23% for the UL Procyon Office Productivity test, and finally 9% and 15% for the WebXPRT 3 test.

Processors naturally need motherboards alongside them, and the Z690, which supports overclocking, is rarely the right choice for a multiplier-locked processor. As expected, Intel also released the rest of the 600 series chipsets, the H670, B660 and H610. The features of the chipsets follow the previous leak and you can find the most important details in the slide above.

As a cherry on top of the cake, Intel also officially released the new Laminar series reference solvers for its processors. There are a total of three new coolers and they are clearly divided: the heaviest Laminar RH1 comes with the Core i9, the heaviest Laminar RM1 with the Core i3, i5 and i7 and the lightest with the Laminar RS1 Pentium and Celeron processors.

The Laminar RH1 is clearly the largest and most beautiful in the range with its controllable RGB lighting and higher structure. There is an even larger copper core in the center of the cooler, and the company has also renewed the processor brackets to use screws and a backplate instead of pins that are printed through the motherboard. According to Intel, the cooler is capable of near-silent operation despite the 202-watt Turbo-TDP on the i9 models, but it doesn’t reveal to the signer how loud the 2.6 BA is. The Laminar RM1 and RS1 are more traditionally equipped, albeit with different mounting clamps and no lighting.
