Intel Core 12 processors will be only slightly more expensive than Intel Core 11

Intel will introduce 12th generation Core processors (Alder Lake) only at the end of October , and their sales, according to the latest data, will start on November 19, but the American retailer has already disclosed the cost of the first representatives of the series. Traditionally, these will be the top models of the Core i9, Core i7 and Core i5 series.

We will remind, earlier on the Web the cost of Alder Lake was already published, but those data related to the European market . The data from the USA should be close to the recommended retail prices, and in this case, we will expect a very small increase relative to the current Rocket Lake CPUs: 5-12% depending on the model.

It should be noted right away that the American store gives the cost of both boxed versions and OEM. Moreover, the difference between them is either not at all, or it is several dollars. If Intel has included new processor coolers in the boxed version , then this would be a good offer for home users.

So the prices. The Core i9-12900K is priced at $ 605. Its version with a disabled graphics core is priced at $ 578. The average cost of the Core i7-12700K and Core i7-12700KF is $ 421 and 394, the cost of the Core i5-12600K and Core i5-12600KF is $ 287 and 262, respectively. The store does not in all cases correctly give the CPU characteristics, but this can be explained by the human factor: it is not so easy to count the number of cores and threads, because in the case of Alder Lake, this is no longer a strict match.
