On the eve of the big announcements timed to coincide with CES 2023, Intl took and raised the prices of its popular Core 12 processors. The cost of six models increased by 10%, the new data is reflected in the proprietary Intel Ark database.
So, if the ex-flagship Core i9-12900K previously cost $589, now it costs $648. For the Core i7-12700K, they previously asked for $409, now it’s $450. The old price of the Core i5-12600K is $289, the new one is $318. The Core i5-12400 and Core i3-12100 have risen in price to $211 and $134, respectively. Please note that these prices are for the US market and only when buying large quantities in bulk, so prices in Europe and in retail will be much higher.
Last year, Intel repeatedly warned about the intention to raise prices for processors, and now the company has begun to do so. Raptor Lake processors (Intel Core 13) are likely to rise in price next.
