Rectangular and larger than the Intel Z590. Intel Z690 chipset captured in the photo – it is similar in shape to Core 12 processors (Alder Lake)

Live photos of Intel Alder Lake processors have repeatedly flashed on the Web, and now a live photo of the top chipset for them – Intel Z690 – has been published. It differs from the current Z590 both in shape and area.

If the Z590 is square, then the Z690 is rectangular (just like the Intel Core 12 processors themselves in the LGA1700 version), and its area is larger. Not surprisingly, motherboards based on Z690 not only received support for DDR4 and DDR5 RAM, but also differ in an abundance of PCIe 4 and PCIe 3 lines and an updated DMI 4 interface, through which the chipset interacts with the processor. The Z690 also supports up to six SATA drives and up to 40 USB devices of four different standards (USB 2.0, USB 3.2 Gen 1×1, USB 3.2 Gen 2×1, and USB 3.2 Gen 2×2).

This photo of the chipset was published by one of the users of the thematic Chinese forum Chiphell – engineering samples of motherboards based on Z690 have been sold in China for about a month, and the chipset with the photo is probably the main one of them. The official premiere of the Z690 will take place simultaneously with CPU Alder Lake on October 27, and sales will start almost a month later – on November 19.

Intel Arc Alchemist graphics cards will be named

Published

The source claims that Intel’s first series of graphics cards will be named “Arc aXXX”, where “a” stands for Alchemist, the first generation of Arc GPUs. The leak he published contains Intel’s recommended rules for the correct construction of names (in the left column) and possible incorrect options (in the right). Of course, buyers and the press are unlikely to follow these guidelines strictly, but graphics card partners, system integrators, and retailers must adhere to these guidelines.

The nameplate suggests that the next three series will use names like “Arc bXXX”, “Arc cXXX” and “Arc dXXX” as Intel has confirmed the codenames for these series: Battlemage, Celestial and Druid.
