i7-12700KF Review

The Intel i7-12700KF is the best CPU that I have ever purchased and I’m more than happy to share my review of it with all of you. In the time that I have owned this CPU, I have not had any problems with it. It runs all of my games extremely well, and scored very high on PassMark, with a score of 34517, and a  single thread rating of 4045.Large, zoomable image of Intel Core i7-12700KF. 2 of 11

This CPU is also priced very well, at $276.81. The i7-12700KF has 12 cores and 20 threads, which allows this CPU to do multiple tasks at the same time, and maintain a fast speed.  On Amazon, this CPU reached a rating of 4.8 stars out of 5, from 905 different ratings.

Not only does this CPU have 12 cores and 20 threads, but it also takes Intel’s newest socket, the LGA 1700. This socket is extremely fast, which allows the CPU to have a base speed of 3.6 GHz, and a turbo speed of 5.0 GHz. This CPU works exceptionally well with all operating systems, especially Windows 10 and Windows 11. I recommend using a new version of RAM with this CPU, which gives even better performance.

In Conclusion, I would recommend this CPU to anyone in the market for a new CPU, but that also do not want to break the bank. This CPU is very powerful and has all of the specs to back it up. This CPU blew past all of my expectations for it, and I am more than satisfied with my purchase.
