Intel teases a highly classified 12900K

Intel has teased the higher frequency i9 12900K on Twitter. If you can refer to past precedents, the chip in question should get the Core i9 12900KS brand. With a boost clock up to 5.5 GHz, such a chip definitely shows that Intel’s 10nm (sorry, Intel 7) process is now working well, and those years of 10nm meme have passed.

Intel’s tweet includes a screenshot showing that one of the CPU cores is clocked at 5.5 GHz and the remaining P cores are clocked at 5.2 GHz. The clock frequency of the E core seems to be 4.0 GHz. In contrast, the standard 12900K can be boosted to 5.2 GHz on one or two cores, and to 5.0 on all cores, and its E core has a frequency of 3.9 GHz.
