Simultaneously, this price will undercut the current prices of the Core i5-12600K by around $60, and with both CPUs looking to be very close in performance, this will undoubtedly result in the Core i5-13400 cannibalizing any sales for the remaining stock of 12600K unless the latter was offered at a massive discount, which is ultimately a good result for the consumers.

Intel is set to officially announce the Core i5-13400 on January 3rd, alongside the the rest of non-K CPUs, the Core i9-13900KS, and the budget B760 motherboards, with the launch soon to follow.
