PC upgrades are getting more expensive with Intel

Intel has secretly increased the recommended retail prices for some of its Alder Lake processors, raising the suggested retail price by 10%.

This isn’t entirely an unexpected move, as Intel signaled its intention to increase the prices of most of its chip products by 10% to 20% last year – we just weren’t sure if it was for consumer processors. Now we know it does, but the price hike leaves us in the odd position that some Alder Lake CPUs are now more expensive than their newer, faster Raptor Lake counterparts.
