intel 12th Generation Alder Lake CPUs Are All Set to Launch in November 2021

Intel is working on its 12h generation chip all set to launch in November 2021. Intel has already manufactured an 11th-generation chipset and now focusing on improving the technology by introducing a new intel 12th-generation chipset. Intel 12th generation CPU provides much better speed and features than the previous chip.

Intel 12th-generation CPUs are lined up for desktop PCs and Laptops. We hope intel is going to launch this CPU at its InnovatiON event. It will be the first desktop processor to use the Intel 7 production process.

Features of intel 12th Generation Alder Lake CPU

  • Architecture: Golden Cove + Gracemont cores
  • GPU: Intel Xe (Gen 12.2)
  • Socket: LGA 1700
  • Max Cores: 8+8 (24 threads)
  • Process: Intel 7 (previously known as 10nm Enhanced SuperFin)
  • RAM support: DDR5 and DDR4

Intel 12th Gen

This is not the only time intel has launched an x86 CPU with hybrid architecture. This CPU will receive scheduling and core optimizations within Microsoft Windows 11 Operating System.

Intel Alder Lake CPUs will feature 16 PCIe Gen 5.0 (discrete graphics) and 4 PCIe Gen 4.0 lanes. This chipset is going to offer 12 Gen 4 and 16 Gen 3 lanes. For more features for 600 series chipset motherboards, check the list below:-

  • eDP / 4DDI (DP, HDMI) Display Capabilities
  • 2-Channel (Up To DDR5-4800 / Up To DDR4-3200) Memory Support
  • PCIe Express 4.0 & PCIe Express 3.0 Support (600-Series Chipset)
  • x16 PCIe 5.0 / x4 PCIe 4.0 Lanes (CPU)
  • Integrated WiFi 6E
  • SATA 3.0
  • USB3 (20G) / USB3 (10G) / USB3 (5G) / USB 2.0
  • Discrete Thunderbolt 4 (USB 4 Compliant)
  • Intel Optane Memory H20 (H10 Successor)
  • Intel LAN PHY

The package size for the chips is 45.0 x 37.5 mm therefore, the existing LGA 1200 package is 37.5 x 37.5 mm. We also know that the Intel Alder Lake CPUs will come with a max core configuration of 16 cores and 24 threads (8 cores / 16 threads based on Golden Cove & 8 cores / 8 threads based on Gracemont).
