The leaked detail pricing of the processor comes from a Belgian retailer. The listing features some newer KF and F models with their pricing.

The leaked data is not official as this is the early information that the retailer had at the moment. The stated MSRP doesn’t have included VAT and might vary according to the CPUs. The list contains all the regular, K, and F series processors. The K series cost higher as it offers an unlocked multiplier whereas the F series comes with no integrated GPU making it cheaper.
The Core i9 11900K is going for less than the Core i9 10900K processor. There is a 100 euro difference between the 8 core Rocket Lake processor and the 10 core Comet Lake processor. The flagship Rocket Lake comes at a lower price due to its lower core count than its predecessor.
The Rocket Lake-S processor has better IPC performance and has the better single-core performance. The Rocket Lake processors have a higher price tag compared to their predecessors.
