Intel's 12th generation processors have the codename of Alder Lake, many PC builders are looking to create a system with these new processors but have little-to-no information on the price of these upcoming processors.
This lack of information has given system integrators and DIY PC builders significant frustration because they want to set a price for these upcoming systems or need to save for their next system, respectively.
Alder Lake Price
Intel has yet to announce any official pricing information regarding their 12th generation processors, but using their recent 11th generation processors as a rough indication may give PC buyers a rough estimate of the upcoming Alder Lake processor series price.
Intel's Rocket lake processors are currently available and feature a pricing model, with the Core i7-10710U feature a price tag of $443. The Intel Core i7-10510U processor has a cost of $409, while the i5 and i3 models feature a price below $300.
While these prices may not be the same as the 12th generation processors, they will most likely be a rough estimate. However, Intel states that the Alder Lake processors will feature "a significant breakthrough," which can potentially mean a price increase.
What else do we know?
The Alder Lake processors are expected to release in the latter half of 2021 and will be based on the 10nm process but will be using an improved version of Intel's existing SuperFin technology.
Alder Lake processors are stated through another leak to support PCIe 4.0, DDR5 memory, and Thunderbolt 4. Which could greatly expand these processors use cases.
