Core i9-12900K listed at $605

It appears that retailers/e-tailers are jumping the gun for Intel's upcoming 12th gen Core Alder Lake CPUs, and after the European listing, these CPUs are now listed in the US as well.

Spotted originally by @harukaze5719 over at Twitter, several Intel 12th gen Core Alder Lake CPUs are listed over Provantage, a US-based retailer/e-tailer.

Previously, these CPUs have been seen in Europe, specifically in the Netherlands, where these were priced anywhere between €350 and €700, including VAT.

Although the US-based retailer/e-tailer is having trouble with Intel's hybrid CPU core configuration it did list both tray and boxed versions, as well as KF versions of these CPUs.

The flagship Core i9-12900K is listed at $605.92, while the KF version is listed at $578.13. The Core i7-12700K and the Core i7-12700KF are listed at $422.17 and $395.61 for boxed versions. The two Core i5 SKUs, the Core i5-12600K, and the Core i5-12600KF are listed at $288.77 and $261.77. made a neat screenshot of all of these listed CPUs.

These first listings in the US put the Alder Lake lineup at below the rumored launch prices, especially for the flagship Core i9-12900K, so hopefully, we'll see similar prices when these CPUs officially launch.

We'll certainly hear more at Intel's Innovation event, scheduled for October 27-28.
