Intel: first image of an Alder Lake processor

Intel: first image of an Alder Lake processor

Nearly a year before the release of the 12th generation Intel processor, we have the right to the first picture of an Alder Lake CPU.


Alder Lake in picture.

Officially planned by Intel for the second half of 2021, Alder Lake will offer the first real change on the market.. desktop mainstream since theSkylake, launched in 2015. To succeed Rocket Lake (whose launch is confirmed for the first quarter of 2021) and finally bury the 14nm.

Alder Lake, will thus come to bring big changes at Intel. To begin with, exit the 14nm++++, place the 10nm enhanced superfin. Then, the Bigtechnology.Little should enter the game, allowing up to 8 hearts to be combined 16 threads high performance (Golden Cove ) and 8 cores 8 threads low consumption (Gracemont).

All of which must be placed on a new socket : the LGA 1700, bringing more power to the processors and new features such as DDR5 or PCIE 5.0. The other good news is that this socket should be there for 3 generations of processors. This new socket had led to rumours about a change in the dimensions of the CPU…This seems to be true.

Videocardz has just confirmed this rumour with the first picture of an Alder Lake-S. The processor in question actually has 1700 pins and is now rectangular with dimensions of 37.5*45.0mm, compared to 37.5*37.5 for a Comet Lake-S.

So we can see that despite the improvements in the engraving process, the CPU size continues to increase…
