Marketing chipsets for 12th-generation Intel processors, Alder Lake-S, have been leaked. This indicates that the 10nm processors will receive DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 support. Intel already confirmed in January that the Alder Lake platform would be released in the second half of 2021.
Leaked Marketing Slides Submitted by Video Cards Published includes performance claims from Intel. Single-threaded CPUs will perform “up to twenty percent better”. It’s unclear if this compares to Rocket Lake or Tiger Lake. Alder Lake will be available for desktop and laptop computers. They will be the company’s first 10nm desktop processors, using earlier rumors New LGA1700 socket.
Segments also claim to be an Multi-threaded Performance will be “up to 2 times” better. Intel, among other things, mentions the presence of Gracemont cores in upcoming chips. The company previously confirmed that Alder Lake CPUs will be getting two cores. In addition to faster Golden Cove cores with hyperthreading, CPUs also get energy-efficient Gracemont cores without threading, which should improve multi-threaded performance. CPUs are also controlled by hardware Scheduling To distribute tasks between different cores.
a TheThe image confirms from the marketing slides that Alder Lake will be available with up to eight Golden Cove cores and eight Gracemont cores, as expected. This gives processors a maximum of 16 cores and 24 pins. The image also shows that the processors will have an integrated Intel Xe GPU.
The chipset also shows that Intel Alder Lake CPUs have sixteen PCIe 5.0 and four PCIe 4.0 lanes. Rumors have been circulating before about PCIe 5.0 support on Intel’s upcoming desktop CPUs, but the company has yet to confirm this. Aside from this, Intel’s upcoming 600-series chipset also features additional PCIe 3.0 and 4.0 lanes. This chipset will also feature integrated Wi-Fi 6E support. Thunderbolt 4 is also supported. However, USB 4.0, which is based on Thunderbolt, also works on upcoming Intel processors.
Alder Lake also offers support for both DDR5 and DDR4 memory, depending on the chipset. This is also in line with expectations; Rumors have circulated that Alder Lake has supported DDR5 for some time, and earlier this month, memory manufacturer Longsys revealed DDR5 standards On the CPU Alder Lake. VideoCardz writes that motherboards with the Z690 chipset are likely to support DDR5 memory. The low-profile 600 series chipset requires DDR4 memory. Alder Lake laptop variants are said to support Lpddr4 and Lpddr5 memory.
Intel confirmed the arrival of Alder Lake During CES In January, we only shared a few specific details at the time however, the company has already confirmed that the processors are made in the 10nm process. The first Intel Alder Lake processors will be released in the second half of 2021, according to Intel, but no specific launch date has yet been announced.
