Alder Lake-S would land in November 2021

Things are looking good for a really important launch for Intel, the Alder Lake-S. In the last few weeks, Intel has informed its major partners to confirm the arrival of this new generation in the 4th quarter of this year.

Of course, this date could still move but however, while some doubts were surfacing about a real commercialization in 2021, Intel seems well decided to launch these CPUs on Q4 2021. Wccftech was able to confirm this information with its sources.

Alder Lake-S change to come: DDR5, PCIe 5.0 and Socket 1700

Alder Lake will undoubtedly be one of the major events of the year for the PC industry. Intel is expected to launch a platform bringing several new features including PCIe 5.0 and DDR5. However, it is confirmed that DDR4 support will also be possible to ensure some transition. Motherboard vendors will be able to enable DDR4 support on separate lines. One thing is definitively clear: DDR5 and DDR4 will not be able to coexist on the same motherboard.

Given the tensions that are also hitting the Ram market, it is very likely that DDR5 support will be reserved for high-end motherboards. The arrival of high-performance DDR4 kits can also reassure those who think that DDR5 stocks will not be there. The price of DDR5 kits compatible with overclocking should be a deterrent at least at the beginning.

Alder Lake-S: the only real novelty of 2021?

Finally, the 1700 socket also brings a certain rupture with a CPU that will take a rectangular shape… And that will obviously require new cooling systems.
