The second half of this year and especially 2022 are going to be exciting times, with all kinds of product launches on tap. Intel will be releasing its first discrete graphics card for gaming (Xe-HPG DG2), and both AMD and Intel are readying new platforms, with eventual support for next-gen technologies like DDR5 memory and PCI Express 5.0. But when is it all coming? A fresh leak may shed some light. We already know that Intel is planning to debut its Alder Lake lineup later this year, which will be accompanied by a new LGA 1700 socket. Alder Lake will kick off the era of heterogeneous computing in the x86 space by mixing high performance cores with power efficient cores in the same package,... Read more...
Heterogeneous CPU architectures could underpin the future of x86 computing, with Intel giving it a go starting with Alder Lake later this year followed by Raptor Lake sometime after, and AMD rumored to be following suit further down the line with Zen 5. As we wait for the hybrid party to begin in earnest, there is some newly leaked information pertaining to both Alder Lake and Raptor Lake to digest. What exactly are we talking about here? Intel has confirmed that Alder Lake features a hybrid architecture, which entails combining high performance cores with power efficient cores within the same package. This approach is often compared to Arm's big.LITTLE branding for mobile CPUs based on its IP,... Read more...
Just over two weeks ago, we got our first look at what was assumed to be Intel's future 13th generation Raptor Lake-S processor family. An alleged roadmap leaked, showing Raptor Lake arriving in 2022 after Intel's 12th generation Alder Lake-S family. Today, we're getting official confirmation from Intel courtesy of its support website that contains documentation for the upcoming processor family. The documents were first noticed by serial leaker momomo_us. Although we can't access the files provided (an "unauthorized user" message pops up when attempting to download them), one of them is a technical advisory regarding compatibility guidance. More specifically, the description... Read more...
A supposed CPU roadmap from Intel has leaked to the web, with references to Rocket Lake (desktop), Tiger Lake (mobile), Alder Lake (desktop and mobile), and Raptor Lake (desktop and mobile). The latter entry is the most interesting of the bunch, because it is the only codename that Intel has not officially acknowledged up to this point. If the roadmap is real, it is clearly an older one, because it shows Rocket Lake launching in 2020. That obviously did not happen—Intel recently confirmed Rocket Lake will blast off later this month, on March 30 at precisely 6:00 am PT (9:00 am ET). There was a time, however, when Intel hoped to get Rocket Lake out the door before the end of 2020. That's... Read more...
