After the 7nm extension, Intel will spend more time at 10nm, but before the 11th generation Of Core, 10nm will remain mobile-only and the desktop will have to wait until the legendary 12th generation Of Core, The Alder Lake. Lake Alder will not only be Intel’s first to bring a mature (2021) 10nm process to the desktop platform, but will also support DDR5 memory at the desktop level for the first time.
To put it simply, Intel’s first support for DDR4 memory began with Skylake in 2016.
In addition to DDR5 memory, Alder Lake’s own point of view also includes the size of the nuclear hybrid architecture design, it is expected that the large core is Golden Cove, the small core is Gracemont, the combination has more than a dozen SKUs, the highest 8 plus 8 plus 1, that is, the 16-core CPU with GT1 nucleation, thermal design power consumption of 125 watts, the lowest is the two large cores.
According to known explosive reports, Alder Lake will also replace the LGA1700 interface with a new chipset platform.
