Among the Alder Lake-S processors released by Intel, the first 12th-generation Core series processors have been confirmed to have Core i9-12900K, Core i7-12700K, and Core i5-12600K, as well as the supporting Z690 chipset. There are rumors that there will be processors with “K” and “KF” suffixes in the starting lineup, but there is no definite news about products with “KF” suffixes.
As Intel’s first x86 desktop processor with big.LITTLE hybrid architecture, many players are very interested. In addition to performance, the price of the processor is also important. Today’s Twitter user @momomo_us leaked the pricing table of Intel’s 12th-generation Core series processors from European retailers, but there is no specific name of the retailer, including the prices of Core i9-12900K, Core i7-12700K, Core i5-12600K, Core i9-12900KF, Core i7-12700KF, and Core i5-12600KF.
For example, the flagship Core i9-12900K processor has complete specifications of 8 P-Core cores (Golden Cove) and 8 E-Core cores (Gracemont), the price of different retailers excluding tax is between 540 euros and 612 euros, and the tax-included price is between 653 euros and 741 euros. The Core i5-12600K processor is close to mainstream players, the price excluding tax is between 287 euros and 302 euros, and the price including tax is between 347 euros and 365 euros. The core i5-12600KF processor of the set display is disabled, the price excluding tax is between 266 euros and 275 euros, and the price including tax is between 321 euros and 333 euros.
Earlier news said that Intel hopes that this processor can reshape the image of “Core i5”.Core i5-12600K has better gaming and multi-threading performance than AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, but the pricing is comparable to Ryzen 5 5600X, I believe it will attract more gamers to buy.
