Intel Core i5-12400(F) is a bit pricier than expected

A Canadian retailer has begun listing unreleased Alder Lake CPUs.

The most important giveaway from this leak is that Core i5-12400F is listed with a price of 249 CAD (200 USD) and i5-12400 at 287 CAD (230 USD), both are higher than the 11th Gen Core series (157 USD and 187 USD respectively).

A non-K Core i5-12700F would have a price tag of 455 CAD (365 USD), which means it would be around 75 CAD cheaper than the K-version which is already on sale.

The first Core i3 SKU from the Alder Lake series to be listed is Core i3-12100F, which is expected to feature 4 cores and 8 threads (it is likely the smaller type die with 2 cores disabled).

It is unclear which frequencies have been listed by the retailer, but one would guess that these base clocks of the Performance (Golden Cove) cores.  The leaker ‘momomo_us’ did not confirm which retailer has listed the new CPUs, hence we used Newegg Canada for a reference:

Since the specifications of the 12th Gen Core non-K series are not officially confirmed, we have to rely on rumors. The most recent leaks have been put together by with proposed configurations and estimated frequencies for the upcoming mid-range series. Those CPUs are now expected to launch in January, thus the early listing by the Canadian retailer is actually a bit surprising.
