It's still an unknown of course how SKUs like i5-12400, etc.. will compete against Zen3 with its 3D Vcache?

Competition is GOOD! :)

3D V-c won't be cheap. Cannot be. It's 40% more silicon (ignoring the i/o die), and the packaging tech doesn't seem like a commodity right now.

Intel has lost the pot with these processors ...
who is interested in a hybrid Core i7 ...

for me there should only be 3 types of processors:

1. those of low consumption where all its cores are efficient and include the iGPU.
2. those of general purpose where all the cores are capped in the turbo bost, and incorporate the iGPU, thus a controlled temperature and performance.
3. the purpose-driven enthusiasts who use the best frequencies and best numbers of cores; it does not require iGPU they would only get in the way if you know that you are going to mount this processor it is because the GPU will be a dedicated one ...

Everything else is smoke.

Then maybe you can explain why the i5 10400F and i5 11400F are hot sellers.

economic, with enough cores for gaming, with a good working clock ... it is the economic processor for gaming ... ho if it does not have igpu ... because it is a waste of space and it would heat up the processor more even if it is not used ... or if you need a GPU for Gaming !!! ... What if this processor for the 12400f generation got 4 "Efficient" cores ... it would raise its price and stop being attractive ...
