Divide and conquer.

Intel’s new performance hybrid  architecture integrates two core families into a single CPU, keeping everything in your gaming universe running smoothly.

Intel® Thread Director

Prioritises and manages workloads, sending tasks to the best core for the job.3

8 Performance-cores

P-cores are built for performance across single and lightly-threaded workloads, enhancing activities like gaming and productivity.

4 Efficient-cores

E-cores are optimised for multi-threaded performance, minimising interruptions from secondary tasks.

Performance beyond the cores.

The new processor architecture is also compatible with the latest platform innovations, giving you performance improvements throughout your PC.

Ready for what’s next

Support for PCIe Gen 5 and DDR5 for high-performance components like memory and graphics.

Best-in-class connectivity

Thunderbolt™ 4 and Intel® Killer™ Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+) deliver fast transfer speeds and connections to peripherals.4

Push past the limit with overclocking.

Increase processing power by fine-tuning your system to run your processor at higher settings2 to improve frame rates and achieve smoother gameplay. Separate overclocking controls for both types of cores gives you nuanced personalisation.
