Intel Core i5-12600K Review
For PC gamers and budget-constrained creative types, Intel's "Alder Lake" Core i5-12600K punches well above its weight in gaming and content creation alike. Just know that the cost of adoption (memory, motherboard, cooler) may make waiting a bit to upgrade a better bet.

Attacking AMD's Prices: Intel Core i5-12600K CPU Review & Benchmarks vs. AMD
and the difference versus the 12.9 in a lot of instances. Uh, isn't extreme enough to justify the jump in price if you're doing something like just gaming? Anyway, that's it for the 12 600k review

Intel Core i5-12600K Review, Gaming, Applications, Power & Temps
For now though, the Core I5 12 600 K is my go-to Cpu at the 300 price bracket, and that is going to do it for today's review.

Intel actually takes an even further lead at the i7 and i5 levels, with the Core i7 12700K beating the Ryzen 5800X by 16% on average, and the Core i5 12600K beating the Ryzen 5600X by a large 26%. And based on what we saw with the i9 12900K, we would expect those numbers to increase by roughly another 10% on average if you were to utilize DDR5 memory.

No and I don’t recommend it. I would get the Intel i5 12600K instead as it beats 5800X whilst priced at around $300.

From my adventures developing websites on my MacBook I can tell you that 8GB of memory and an i5 processor are more than enough for you. But to future-proof your device, I recommend an i7. Examples of work I run on my laptop simultaneously while web developing without a problem: Spotify (gotta have music), Terminal, Safari, Chrome, Node App (web dev stuff), code editor (Atom), Postman (more web dev stuff), MongoDB Compass (web dev stuff again), and a process for a local data base. Sometimes Chrome uses a lot of CPU so I have to close some tabs, but that’s only because I’m already running lots of programs and my processor is probably struggling with scheduling all of them.
