Unreleased Intel 12th Gen Core processor specs leak

Two sources this week appear to have leaked the specifications for some of Intel’s unreleased 12th Gen Core processors. We’ve already seen the K and KF SKUs release, but now we also have an idea of what to expect from Intel’s upcoming non-K and “F”  variants. 

As found by @momomo_us, the Japanese retailer, Dospara, has detailed the specifications of multiple Intel 12th Gen Core non-K desktop processors. Dell has also revealed some details through the configuration page for the Alienware Aurora R13 gaming PC.

The specifications between both sources match, with one exception: Dell lists the Intel Core i9-12900F as having a boost clock speed of 5.2GHz, while Dospara lists it at 5.1GHz, which is the same as the Core i9-12900. Here, we believe Dell made a mistake because both the F and non-F processors tend to share the same specifications, with the only difference being the lack of iGPU.

Another interesting thing we’ve noticed is the TDP of the Core i5-12600, which is set at 125W instead of the expected 65W. We are not sure if this is a typo, but Intel should clear this up with official details in early 2022. You can see the full list of specs in the table below:

SKU Cores/Threads E-Cores clock speeds P-cores clock speeds L3 cache TDP

We expect to see these processors available in early 2022, with a possible announcement in January at CES 2022.
