If you compare with some products currently on sale, you will find that the price of the first 12th generation Core series processors is more expensive than the 11th generation Core series processors, and of course, the specifications are also higher. Although the flagship Core i9-12900K is cheaper than AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, the Core i7-12700K and Core i5-12600K will be more expensive than the competition.
