Upgrading your PC is getting more expensive thanks to Intel

Intel has stealthily upped the recommended pricing for some of its Alder Lake processors, bumping up the MSRP by 10%.

This is not exactly an unexpected move, as Intel signaled its intention to hike pricing for the majority of its chip products by 10% to 20% last year – we just weren’t sure if this would apply to consumer CPUs. Now we know that it does, but the price hike does leave us in an odd situation where some Alder Lake processors are now pricier than their newer, faster Raptor Lake equivalents.
