US retailer Provantage list’s latest prices for Intel’s upcoming Alder Lake lineup

- Advertisement -

A US-based retailer which goes by the name of Provantage has recently listed pricing for Intel’s 12th Generation Alder Lake K-series processors. As we know, Intel’s upcoming Alder Lake will be the first hybrid x86 desktop chips on a mainstream platform, and if the recent news and rumors are to be believed then the Alder Lake will be directly competing with AMD’s Ryzen 5000 chips for a spot on our list of Best CPUs for Gaming.

Even if Provantage has a strong reputation it’s still in favor to approach this matter with caution as Intel will not be releasing its new SoC’s until Fall 2021, so Provantage’s pricing could just be a placeholder.

According to reports, the listing by Provantage is as for the Core i9-12900K, Core i7-12700K, Core i5-12600K, and their corresponding KF-series counterparts. Following the news, we found that the retailer has listed the KF models with a $26 to $27 discount, so that’s seemingly what Intel’s Gen12 Xe graphics is worth. That’s not a huge surprise, considering that Alder Lake has been rumored to retain the Xe-LP graphics engine that’s inside Intel’s Tiger Lake chips, but with up to 32 EUs.

The Core i9-12900K and Core i9-12900KF have been listed by Provantage at $604.89 and $578.13, respectively. The pricing is at the very best modest when compared to another retailer that posted the same processors for $705 and $674, respectively.

On the other hand, the Core i7-12700K and Core i7-12700KF will cost around $422.17 and $395.61, respectively. Coming to the Core i5-12600K and Core i5-12600KF which are poised to be the favorite SKUs for gamers will carry a $288.77 price tag for K-variant while the latter is priced at $261.77.

It will be interesting to see the interesting battle between Intel and AMD after the release of Intel’s Alder Lake CPUs.
