First Leaked Photos of Intel Core i9-12900K and i7 & i5 Alder Lake-S Series Packaging

VideoCardZ has leaked first images of upcoming 12th Gen Alder Lake-S desktop processors packaging. The Core i9-12900K packaging features a small wafer, possibly as a display element. It seems that none of the Core i9/i7/i5 K and KF-series CPUs launching in November will be bundled with a reference cooler.

And currently there is no leaks on 12th Gen Core i3 series packaging, as rumored before, Intel will be launching entry-level SKUs sometime in the future.

Intel is set to announce 12th Gen Alder Lake-S desktop processors on October 28th, retailers will be allowed to take preorders for the new series. And the official release date for new series will be on November 4th.
