What to expect: With Alder Lake, Intel is reversing AMD's dominance with its Ryzen 5000 series CPUs. The first batch of 12th-generation Team Blue chips are currently very expensive, but a new value king may be hiding among future CPUs introduced in early 2022.
Closed Intel Alder Lake processors received generally positive feedback, and experts praised the performance improvements over the Rocket Lake as well as AMD's Ryzen 5000 processors, not to mention the solid pricing. Naturally, this has led to AMD dropping the price of its current generation of desktop processors to $150, although this discount varies from retailer to retailer, as well as from region to region. p>
Intel has not yet done so. It released its flagship Alder Lake processor, which is expected to be priced at $119. According to leaked listings from Canadian retailer DirectDial seen by Twitter user @momomo_us, 12th-generation Intel non-K processors are designed to outperform the current Ryzen 7 5800X, the current Ryzen 5 5600X, and even the current Ryzen 3 5300G. It deserves a king, but only on off-the-shelf PCs.

i7 processor $430 - 12700KF looks like a great alternative to AMD's Ryzen 7 5800X right now, but The locked version might be a more attractive proposition. Simply put, if you don't care about overclocking and don't have a problem with a slightly less clock (and lower power consumption) than a $450 Core i7-12700K, you can soon get something close to its roughly $365 performance level.
If you're on a smaller budget, the Core i5-12400 and Core i5-12400F will both cost less than $250. These two CPUs will only have six Golden Cove (Performance) cores, but by initial benchmarks, they can exceed their weight class on certain workloads. Whether you want integrated graphics or not, you can save another $30.
The Core i3-12100F is expected to only integrate four Golden Cove. However, the cores can also be offered at a reasonable price over $119. Intel plans to release these new processors in early 2022, so it won't be long before we learn more about their capabilities. p>
