According to VideoCardz reports, the boxed design renderings of the 12th generation Core series processors have been leaked. The Core i9-12900K processor has the top specifications in Alder Lake-S, 8 P-Core (Golden Cove) with 8 E-Core (Gracemont), a total of 16 cores, and 24 threads. The box of this flagship product will adopt a square-shaped package, replacing the trapezoidal shape of the Core i9-11900K, which is full of post-modern artistic flavor. Of course, the boxed Core i9-12900K has also added a unique design. This time, you will see the wafers for manufacturing the processor on the side of the outer package, which is very distinctive.

In addition, there are other packages for Core i9, Core i7, and Core i5 processors, which are relatively ordinary and the design style is more traditional. However, there is currently a lack of packaging design for the boxed Core i3 processor, and it may be launched later. It is said that Intel will release entry-level products in due course.
