Intel has updated their desktop CPU line with the new 12th Gen Intel Core processors. These are the first x86 chips to include different types of cores on the same die: fast "big" cores for high performance tasks, with high clock speeds and Hyper-Threading technology, and efficient "little" cores that use less power for low priority and background tasks. Combined with the updated thread scheduler in Windows 11, and running on new chipsets like Z690, this design enables both higher processing speeds and better efficiency than previous generations.
