Roughly a year since its introduction, the Intel Core i9-12900K is now discounted by 29 percent on Amazon.

After applying the ongoing 29 percent discount, that figure goes down to US$499.88.

This is the result of 90 percent 5/5 ratings and 5 percent 4 out of 5 reviews, with 3 percent of the reviewers awarding the minimum score and 1 percent rating it 3/5. The breakdown "by feature" includes a 4.4/5 rating for gaming, 4.2 for ease of installation and overclocking, as well as 4.0 for value and stability.

Announced in November 2021 and released shortly after that, the Intel Core i9-12900K sports 8 performance cores and 8 efficiency cores with a total of 24 threads, an integrated memory controller that supports up to 128 GB DDR5 memory in dual channel configuration with 4800 MT/s, and is known for its excellent overclocking performance. The default clocks of up to 5.2 GHz (P-cores) and 3.9 GHz (E-cores) and the generous overclocking headroom allow it to match the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X and Ryzen 9 5950X in multi-threaded performance, making it an ideal companion for both gamers and content creators.
