The Intel 11 generation Core family’s low-power mobile version of Tiger Lake is coming soon, and the desktop version of Rocket Lake is not coming until the first half of next year, but the 12th generation of the desktop version of Alder Lake is already under intense development and, more recently, in the spotlight. Now, for the first time, Alder Lake appears in the SiSoftware database.
But the detection of information is not much, the CPU part has no information at all, the GPU nuclear display section shows that there are 32 execution units, 256 cores, compared to the current Comet Lake 10 generations of up to 24 units, 192 core size sized a lot, the architectural aspect is certainly to continue 11 generations will introduce Xe.
As you can also see, Alder Lake will continue to pair with DDR4 memory, while DDR5 memory, which has just been officially published, looks like it won’t be in the mainstream desktop market until at least 2023.
There is, of course, a possibility that Alder Lake will support both DDR4 and DDR5 memory to facilitate transitions, but the current test platform is not using DDR5.
Based on current information, Alder Lake is expected to be released in the first half of 2022, the desktop market for the first time using large and small core designs, including golden Cove Big Core, Gracemont Small Core, offering different combinations of 8 plus 8, 6 plus 8, 2 plus 8, 6 plus 0, while the manufacturing process has a claim that the CPU part UI is 10nm and GPU part continues to be 14nm.
