Alder Lake-S: a new socket is confirmed on Intel’s website!

Alder Lake-S: a new socket is confirmed on Intel’s website!

With its Comet Lake-S processors, Intel launched a new socket on the market: the LGA-1200. Nevertheless, as we explained hereThis socket will have a very short lifetime of about one year. Enough to see two generations of CPUs, namely Comet Lake-S and Rocket Lake-S. After its two generations of CPUs, Intel will launch Alder Lake-S as well as a new socket, the LGA-1700 and this is confirmed via the company’s website.

Alder Lake-S: Intel’s Website seems to confirm the LGA-1700!

Last time, this LGA-1700 was only at the rumour stage, however, a small lack of security – tenit vortez– of the blue site (industrial support) allows you to know a little more. Indeed, via this last one we learn that the LGA-1700 is indeed in the program for this generation of CPU.

As a reminder, this twelfth generation of Core i should arrive somewhere by the end of 2021. On the agenda, this new platform should offer support for DDR5 on the Intel side as well as PCIe 4.0 (secure). Although PCIe 5.0 is also expected to be released this year, there is no indication that it will be implemented yet. The “Gen5” he mentions in the image above refers to the 5th generation of voltage regulation test equipment.

On the CPU side now, we would have the right to the first desktop models taking advantage of a 10 nm engraving. On the core side, as we said in our previous article…their number could rise to 16. However, this would be more of a mix between “big” and “small” hearts. Concretely, two architectures would be at work within the same CPU: Golden Cove for the “big” ones and Gracemont for the “small” ones. One of the advantages of doing so, would be to see the power consumption drop in idle by running only the small cores… A bit like on a mobile phone.

In short, all this seems to confirm that this new socket, the LGA-1700, will be in use in 2021. Now all that remains to be seen is how long it will remain in place.
