Since early pricing leaks are not new, we can actually take a look back at the 11th Gen Core launch. Similar pre-launch pricing leaks were put together by @harukaze5719 back in January this year, just 2 months prior to the official introduction of Rocket Lake-S CPUs. We are more or less in the same period before the Alder Lake-S launch.
Intel is now set to launch its 12th Gen Core series by the end of this year. The company will have a special event on October 27th, where the series could be formally announced.
Intel Alder Lake-S series is to support DDR4 as well as DDR5 memory technology along with PCIe Gen5 standard. New motherboards based on 600 series chipset and equipped with LGA1700 socket will be required to use those CPUs.
