Intel’s 12th Generation Core Non-K/KF Series Price Leaked

At present, Intel’s 12th-generation Core series desktop processors have launched a total of six, but they are all models of the K/KF series. For most users, these Alder Lake processors are not the object of choice. Many people are waiting for a model with a TDP of 65W. It is said that more 12th-generation Core series desktop processors will arrive in January next year.

Although there are still two months or so, the sales channel seems to be ready. According to Twitter user @momomo_us, a Canadian distributor has listed a series of unreleased Alder Lake processors and provided prices. These processors include Core i7-12700F, Core i5-12400, Core i5-12400F, and Core i3-12100F products, the prices are 455 Canadian dollars (365 USD), 287 Canadian dollars (about 230 USD), 249 Canadian dollars (200 USD/1280 RMB), and 148 Canadian dollars (119 USD). The whistleblower did not disclose the specific distributor name, but you can compare the pricing of these processors with other products in Newegg Canada.

Core i5-12400 and Core i5-12400F are both mid-range products equipped with 6 Golden Cove architecture performance cores (Performance Core), Core i3-12100F is reduced to 4. The French website Comptoir Hardware has revealed the benchmark test results of the Core i5-12400F, which performed well, and I believe it will be the product of choice for many users.
