Another seller states the prices of Alder Lake-S in dollars

Intel’s new Alder Lake-S processors will be available sometime in the fall, which is basically certain, meaning that Intel will very unusually replace one of its desktop processor generations (Rocket Lake-S) in half a year. However, it is very probable that basically only three Alder Lake-S models will come on the market this year and others will arrive later (spring?). These are the Core i9-12900K, Core i7-12700K and Core i5-12600K, all of which will also be available in cheaper versions of KF with deactivated integrated graphics.

The previously mentioned prices in euros showed that Intel will probably send its Rocket Lake-S to retirement, if it is not significantly cheaper, and they also pointed it out. dollar prices. The Core i9-11900K and Core i9-11900KF will now cost $ 549 and $ 529, respectively, a price that is likely to be between the new generation Core i9 and Core i7. The Core i7-12700K should be cheaper according to the price in euros (approx. 433 and 407 for K and KF), while offering eight significantly more powerful cores and four other weaker cores in a 12C / 20T configuration compared to the eight-core Core i9-11900K. (resp. 8P + 4E / 20T).

If these prices are confirmed, and that AMD does not give Intel much room for maneuver, the Rocket Lake-S will be completely uninteresting with the arrival of the new Alder Lake-S, but only in terms of themselves and their recommended price. One question is whether Intel will prepare enough supplies to make the Alder Lake-S reasonably priced and not significantly more expensive than previous generations, but in that case the customer will simply be able to reach for Ryzen, which has long been in easily accessible in its state-of-the-art form. And the advent of just three models in a total of six versions shows that with the initial availability of Alder Lake-S processors, this may not be exactly famous.

In addition, it can be assumed that as models for more demanding customers, the first Alder Lake-S will be designed primarily for boards with support for the new DDR5, and these should be significantly more expensive than conventional DDR4, so in this respect can be prepared for higher costs and we may fear that the boards themselves will not be cheap. They can be more expensive, especially with regard to PCIe 5.0 support, and in the case of the chipset there will also be 12 PCIe 4.0 lines, and it has already been shown that boards with Z690 can also have enhanced CPU power compared to comparable models with Z590.

Alder Lake-S itself can be considered a reasonable (recommended) price, which, in addition to demand, can be significantly increased by the required motherboard, memory and in some cases a new heatsink, if its manufacturer does not provide the appropriate mounting kit (see Noctua ).
