Intel Publishes List of Games That Don’t Work Properly on 12th Gen Core Processors

Intel has published a list of games that don’t work on the 12th Gen Core i7 processor. This is because some games might not be compatible with Intel’s newest hardware and can cause crashes or errors while playing, leading to lower frame rates.

The Intel® Core™ i9-9900K is the world’s most powerful mainstream gaming processor, and it requires a compatible motherboard to be used. Here are some of the best motherboards for this processor.Intel’s new list of games that won’t work properly when played on 12th Gen Core Processors is raising eyebrows. It seems like the company isn’t concerned with providing information to PC gamers, instead focusing on hardware specs for consoles.The “intel 12th gen” is a list of games that are incompatible with the new Intel Core Processors. The list includes games such as Battlefield 1, Call of Duty Infinite Warfare, and Civilization VI.

Due to DRM software concerns, Intel has released a list of games that are broken (e.g., crash or won’t load) on PCs using the company’s latest 12th Gen Core CPUs. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (Windows 10/11), Tomb Raider: Shadow of the Tomb Raider (Windows 10) and Mortal Kombat 11 is the eleventh installment in the Mortal Kombat series (Windows 10/11) are among the new and interesting games. Patches for the games in bold will be available in mid-November as part of a Windows OS update, according to Intel.

Intel says:

Certain third-party gaming DRM software may mistakenly identify 12th Generation Intel Core Processors efficient-cores (E-cores) as a different machine. This makes it impossible for games that use DRM software to operate properly. Games may crash or shut down suddenly during startup or gameplay.
