Interestingly, the specs are almost identical to the Intel Core i7-11700K as the cheapest 8-core overclocking processor and the Core i9-11900K.
There are currently 4 to 5 price lists for these processors that differ from each other due to store policies as well as sales location. In some lists, the price difference can even reach 30%.
In general, if we take an average of the prices available in stores, we will see a 10 to 20 percent increase in the price of Rocket Lake processors compared to the current generation. As you can see in the list below, for example, the average price of a Core i9-11900K processor is close to $ 615, while the equivalent in the current generation is priced at around $ 488, although this price varies from region to region.

Finally, the Core i9-11900K processor could become the fastest gaming processor on the market by defeating its rival. The company released details of the processor performance at CES 2021.
Intel will launch new processors in the first quarter of this year, and motherboard makers have introduced new Z590 models.
