Intel Core i9-12900KS Already Shipped to Customers Ahead of Official Launch

According to VideoCardZ, the upcoming Intel Core i9-12900KS flagship Alder Lake-S desktop processor now already shipped to first customers ahead of official launch.

The Intel Core i9-12900KS is the pre-binned 16-core and 24-thread SKU with a maximum single-core boost of 5.5 GHz. This processor has been extensively teased by Intel since CES 2022. As the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D now officially launching on April 20th, one would guess that 12900KS launches very soon as well, could be in late March to early April.
