Intel Core i5-12600K Review

Rating: 9.0.

While Intel’s flagship i9-12900K may be stealing the headlines today, the mid-range i5-12600K is arguably more impressive. Comprised of six Performance cores and four Efficient cores, for a total of 16 threads, this processor comes with a more palatable £290 asking price. That puts it head to head with the popular Ryzen 5 5600X, but is it a battle Intel can win?
