If this is true, the 12400F may undermined the 12600 sales as well.
12400f only makes sense if there was B660 board + ddr4.
More than sure . You don't need K models anymore .Same happened with 10/11 gen . 10400f/11400f is constantly out of stock , it is best selling CPU right now.
I build few PC's for my friends last year , all were based on 10400f or 11400f . I'm 5600X owner
Whole alder like only make sense only in one case scenario :
1. Enthusiast with deep pocket that need the best.
All others , there are better options . That is why Alder sales are soo bad ( and my source is pretty solid , big etailer).
Ask your source about Zen 3 sales. I suspect the problem for ADL isn't cost, it's timing. Almost everyone who's needed a new PC due to COVID complications has already bought one recently, and as most of us have agreed - as good as ADL is, it's not a compelling upgrade for anyone with a freshly built or upgraded rig.
They say Zen3 was disaster at launch. Later sold quite good( many solo orders, means people with am4 boards already). Still not as good as 10400f and 11400f tho
People do shop around I bought my mobo, CPU and memory all in different countries
Yea but you know "statistics" . Maybe your are not statistic person
now if only we had unlocked multipliers or bclk control...
