We've covered just about every possible leak concerning Intel's upcoming Alder Lake-S desktop family of processors. At this point, we know that there will initially be a Core i5-12600K, Core i7-12700K, and Core i9-12900K (along with their KF counterparts with deactivated GPUs). Now, we're learning about some new... Read more...
Intel's upcoming Alder Lake CPUs are still a few weeks away from launching, presumably, but there is plenty of related hardware in the wild to keep the leaks flowing. The latest one is an actual photo (read: not a render) of a next-generation LGA 1700 socket, as shown above. It looks similar overall to LGA 1200, but... Read more...
Some potentially exciting platform upgrades are on the horizon, two of them coming by way of Alder Lake and its accompanying Z690 series chipset. Namely, support for the PCI Express 5.0 bus, which doubles the bandwidth compared to PCI Express 4.0, and DDR5 memory. Will either matter? We can only wait and see, but as... Read more...
Intel is close to releasing its first batch of processors based on its hybrid Alder Lake architecture, at which point we will finally have some definitive answers about how it performs. Until then, we're left to leaks and rumors. In theory, leaks should be a little more reliable since we're so close to a retail... Read more...
Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger, or as he puts it, the "self-appointed Geek-in-Chief," recently sat down for a video chat with analyst Pierre Ferragu to discuss his growth as a leader and what is in store for the world's largest supplier of semiconductor chips. Gelsinger talked about what he learned during his time at VMWare... Read more...
As we come closer to Intels 12th generation Alder Lake-S processor launch, more information is making its way to the internet via leaks. Last week, we learned about the incoming F SKUs, which will have their onboard Xe GPUs disabled. Today, at least for the European market, Alder Lake-S pricing leaked for Core i5... Read more...
Intel has added "enhanced Alder Lake support" to its extreme tuning utility (Intel XTU for short), ahead of actually launching its 12th Generation Core desktop processors. Make no mistake, Alder Lake is coming soon, and Intel is getting its ducks in a row. Same can be said about its hardware partners, with a bevy of... Read more...
It seems ASRock is eager for Intel to launch its next-generation Alder Lake processors, and we would venture a guess that so are other motherboard makers. As it applies to ASRock specifically, however, a leaked list of around three dozen models based on various 600-series chipests has found its way to the... Read more...
If you are wondering where things stand with Alder Lake, in terms of timing, the no-fun answer is we don't know precisely. However, we do know Intel will be launching Alder Lake before the end of the year, and rumor has it, the initial lineup will be performance desktop SKUs aimed at enthusiasts. Alder Lake is also...

What the F is going on over at Intel? Well, if this latest leak is any indication, the chip company is ready to unleash a new series of F SKUs for its upcoming Alder Lake-S desktop processors. For those that arent familiar with the intricacies of Intels processor nomenclature, the F designation at the end of the model... Read more...
Not every performance leak related to Alder Lake has been super encouraging, but this latest one certainly falls into that category. It showcases the upcoming Core i9-12900K in Geekbench, and both the single-threaded and multi-threaded scores are nothing short of impressive. They also seemingly highlight why the OS... Read more...
If we had a nickel for every time an Alder Lake processor appeared in a leaked benchmark run, we'd have a lot of nickels. We're not sure exactly how many, but probably enough to weigh our pockets down, at least. Adding to the pile is yet another set of benchmark results, this time with the unreleased Core i7-12700...

Each passing day seems to bring with it a leak of some kind related to Alder Lake, the heterogeneous architecture that will power Intel's next round of processors. And so it goes this weekendthere are a couple of interesting benchmark entries highlighting the performance of Intel's not-yet-released Core i9-12900K... Read more...
Intel just gave us an extensive rundown of architectural details for its Alder Lake processors, including the fact that high-end SKUs will top out with 8 Golden Cove performance cores and 8 Gracemont efficiency cores. Only the performance cores have Hyper-Threading enabled, which means that a hypothetical Core... Read more...
We all know Alder Lake is right around the corner, and rumors have increased in frequency pertaining to its successor, Raptor Lake, which allegedly has already been taped-in. Leaks and rumors get a bit murkier when looking further in the distance, but be that as it may, the latest chatter points to a supposed and... Read more...
Some more details came to light about Alder Lake during the Intel Architecture Day 21 event, including a bit of a deeper dive into the hybrid architecture with three high-speed interconnect fabrics to tie together I/O, memory, and compute. What Intel unsurprisingly did not discuss is Alder Lake's successor, Raptor... Read more...
A recent Coreboot patch for a Chromebook development device featuring Alder Lake inside (codenamed "Brya") appears to have outlined some of the power limits of Intel's next-generation mobile processors. Included in the patch notes are PL1, PL2, and PL4 wattage ratings for Intel's Alder Lake-P and Alder Lake-M... Read more...
Someone appears to have leaked an unreleased Gigabyte Aorus 17G laptop configuration built around Intel's upcoming mobile Alder Lake-P platform. Whether on purpose or by accident, the leak appears as a new entry at the UserBenchmark database, and seems to come from someone within Gigabyte's headquarters from Tawain... Read more...
We have seen some encouraging performance leaks related to Intel's upcoming Alder Lake-S processors, and while we are hesitant to put much stock into unconfirmed figures, we are at least cautiously optimistic it will be a worthy upgrade over Rocket Lake. Alder Lake might also consume more peak power than Rocket Lake... Read more...
At this point, it is common knowledge that Intel will be launching its Alder Lake lineup before the end of the year (barring any last minute hiccups), but what SKUs will those be? Only the decision makers at Intel know for sure. That said, a fresh rumor suggests the first round of Alder Lake processors will be... Read more...
All the pieces to the puzzle seem to be coming together for the next significant leap in PC computing. Microsoft first announced its Windows 11 operating system last month, and Intel has been talking up its 12th generation Alder Lake processor technology for every longer. Both are rumored for a late October launch... Read more...
Each passing day brings us a little bit closer to Intel's upcoming Alder Lake launch. We know Alder Lake arrive before the end of the year, assuming Intel sticks with its stated release schedule, but details about different SKUs will have to wait. Official details, that isunofficially, the leaks and rumors scene has... Read more...
