Intel’s Official NewsroomAccording to the latest information posted on , the 12th-generation Alder Lake chips are expected to launch in the second half of 2021. According to the information, there is a mention that it can be released at any time after July of this year, but it is known that a specific date has not been released yet.
Although there is no specific date, Intel’s CEO Pat Gelsinger said on the 27th and 28th of October at the online event ‘Accelerated’, which announced information related to the next-generation process and processor roadmap on July 26th. As the ‘Intel InnovatiON’ event to be held in San Francisco on the 1st announced that it would be held in a ‘Fully Hybrid’ method, the possibility that the 12th generation Elder Lake chip could be released as early as October 27th was raised.
Since then, Intel’s accelerated event introduces only K series and KF series processors along with the Z690 chipset, and the remaining 12th generation cores and motherboards based on the H670, B660 and B610 chipsets will be released at CES 2022, the world’s largest IT fair. announced plans to do so.
Intel also said at the event that it would rename the 10nm node to Intel 7. This 10nm node is used by Alder Lake CPUs and Sapphire Rapids CPUs used in data centers. In addition to increasing the transistor’s performance-to-watt-efficiency by 10-15%, Intel 7 said it will improve power distribution, optimize source and drain doping, and reduce resistance.
