The Core i5-12600K delivers very good performance under Windows 11 and is also future-proof. It is worthwhile for buyers who are building a completely new PC system.

The Intel Core i5-12600K performs well all round in the test and proves to be an excellent PC centrepiece for both everyday tasks and gaming. In many tests, it even beats its high-end predecessor, the i9-11900K, with lower power consumption. Last but not least, the price is convincing: at launch you pay only 329 euros - that's very reasonable for a top gaming CPU.
