Newegg rushes to run Intel’s 12th-generation Core desktop processors, but requires customers to cooperate and keep secret
Although Intel will not officially start selling the 12th-generation Alder Lake processors until November 4, Newegg has “accidentally” shipped them to some customers “in advance”.The post posted by Reddit netizens shows that in order not to violate the agreement signed with Intel, the e-commerce giant is asking customers to keep confidential. After all, in accordance with the rules, although the reservation has been opened a week in advance, the rush to run still needs to bear a certain amount of responsibility for breach of contract.

VideoCardzAfter shopping around on Reddit, I found that there are more than one or two Newegg customers who are “fortunate” to get the 12th-generation Core desktop processor in advance.
But what surprised them even more was that Newegg customer service took the initiative to call consumers, hoping that everyone would hold back and refrain from posting any content on the Internet during this week.
Netizens suggest ignoring Newegg’s requirements, after all, consumers have never signed an NDA confidentiality agreement.
Considering that the retail version of the 12th-generation desktop Core processor has already been reported on the Internet, and we have a fairly comprehensive understanding of the packaging, specifications, and design of it and the supporting 600-series motherboards, this “seal” move It really makes us feel a little puzzled.
Another buyer also encountered the incident, and the netizen begged to run for a point.
For netizens who are not too busy watching the excitement, it is obvious that early lucky consumers will share more running scores related to the 12th-generation Core processor. After all, motherboard manufacturers have opened up new product sales earlier.
Someone else received a voicemail
As for the cause of the “Oolong” incident at Newegg, some people speculated that it was a “system error”. Perhaps a “temporary worker” behind the scenes was about to be detained as a chicken leg in the lunch box.
