Amazon US has discounted the Core i7-12700K, a powerful option among Intel's Alder Lake-S series. Dipping to nearly US$250, the Core i7-12700K has 12 cores, 20 threads, a 125 W TDP (PL1) and relies on Intel's 10 nm nodes. The Core i7-12700K also utilises the LGA 1700 socket, among other features.

Amazon US is currently running the Core i7-12700K at a healthy 22% discount, seemingly the lowest price that the processor has reached to date. To recap, the Core i7-12700K is a member of the Alder Lake-S series. As such, the processor relies on a 10 nm manufacturing process and has a 125 W TDP (PL1). Additionally, the Core i7-12700K has 12 cores split between 8 P cores and 4 E cores, as well as a UHD Graphics 770 iGPU.

Moreover, the Core i7-12700K has 12 MB L2 cache, 25 MB L3 cache and requires the LGA 1700 socket. According to our database, the Core i7-12700K easily outperforms the Ryzen 7 5800X. However, it can consume up to 190 W in the process. The Core i7-12700K only trails the Ryzen 7 7700X by a few percent too, although the newer Core i7-13700K may be a better option for those who want bleeding-edge performance from a Core i7 part.

Typically, the Core i7-12700K retails for over US$320. Amazon US' latest deal discounts the processor to US$254.14 though, a US$69.75 saving. In comparison, the Core i7-11700K is under US$10 cheaper, even with a price reduction of its own. While we have not reviewed the Core i7-12700K in a desktop set-up, Eurocom offers the processor in the Raptor X15, a 15.6-inch gaming laptop that also features the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, albeit its laptop variant.
