Intel announces 12th generation multi-core processors



Intel has announced not only powerful mobile CPUs Tiger Lake-H35 and desktop Rocket Lake-S, but also Alder Lake – they are also Intel Core 12 generations. Now the main feature of Alder Lake has been confirmed – “multi-core”.

Alder Lake will use high-performance and highly efficient cores. The concept itself is not new: Arm has been using it for a long time, and Intel itself already uses this approach in CPU Lakefield. But Alder Lake will be the company’s first mainstream CPUs for both desktop and laptop computers. Some see the 12th generation Intel Core as a threat to the Apple M1 SoC in particular and the SoC on the ARM architecture (for example, the Snapdragon 8cx platform for laptops) in general, but this is rather a far-fetched story, since all the features of the x86 architecture will remain in Alder Lake, albeit and to some extent leveled.

For Alder Lake, Intel promises an improved 10nm SuperFin process, improved MIM capacitors and faster transistors. High-performance cores are called Golden Lake, energy-efficient ones – Gracemont. The latter will not support multithreading, so starting from Alder Lake the number of cores will not be strictly twice the number of threads, as it is now.

Intel promises that “the most power-scalable system-on-a-chip” will be released in the second half of the year, then there will be ready-made devices based on Alder Lake.
