Intel’s next-generation Alder Lake processors combine high-performance cores and high-efficiency cores into a single product. It’s also the company’s first processor built on a new, enhanced version of 10nm SuperFin and will serve as the foundation for their future desktop and mobile processors that deliver more efficient real-world computing. One person managed to snag not one, but two, Intel Core i9-12900K processors in their retail packaging ahead of their release next month. Read more for additional pictures and information.



This person said they paid approximately $610 USD for each processor before tax, which is roughly $190 less than its competitor, the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X. Now if the leaked benchmarks are genuine, the latter will definitely need to step up its game, but either way, this is definitely some healthy competition. When will you be able to get an Alder Lake processor? It’s rumored to hit stores officially on November 4th.
