Intel Core i9-12900K Qualification Samples now Available on Black Market for $1,064

Just several days after first rumored specs of upcoming Intel Core i9-12900K QS, now i9-12900K qualification sample is already available on black market in China for about $1,000.

The leaker Yuuki_AnS claims that samples of Core i9-12900K are now available for around 6900 to 7500 CNY (1064 to 1157 USD) on the Chinese black market. And the LGA1700 platform has been released yet, which means that the potential buyer is also required to obtain a next-gen Z690 motherboard, which may be even harder than finding an i9-12900K sample for sale.
