Intel is expected to talk about Alder Lake in more detail at its Innovation event tomorrow with a full reveal coming next month on November 4.

With the launch so close, it seems fellow outlet VideoCardz was able to get its hands on purported slides that showcase the performance and prices of Alder Lake-S early. The first of the two slides shows the gaming performance of the flagship Alder Lake-S SKU, the Core i9-12900K. The processor will be a 16 core, 24 thread (16C/24T) part and it is easily able to beat the 16C/32T Ryzen 9 5950X with margins of up to 30%. The slide also features the last-gen Rocket Lake-S flagship Core i9-11900K.

Of course, these slides are reportedly made by Intel which means it is natural to see such bullish figures. However, recent Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation leaks also suggest that Alder Lake-S' gaming performance will be formidable. A general performance review for the i9-12900K was also conducted by SiSoft that you can find here.

Moving on from the performance aspect, alleged pricing details for the Alder Lake-S lineup are also out. Apparently, the flagship Core i9-12900K will come in at an MSRP of $589 which is $50 higher than what Intel launched the previous-gen Rocket Lake-S at. Likewise, the other lower SKUs also receive corresponding price bumps.

The slides also contain no information on the locked (non-K) parts or the i3 lineup since they aren't expected to launch with the initial batch of Alder Lake-S processors.
