The Intel product roadmap has reached the Internet and approved the configuration of Intel 12th generation processors for laptops. This roadmap shows when Intel processors will be ready to ship on consumer products.
The two platforms mentioned in today’s report Cited, Intel are Alder Lake-P and Alder Lake-M. The Alder Lake-P series replaces the H35, Tiger Lake-H45 and UP3 series. The maximum number of cores of these processors is 14, including 6 Golden Cove cores and 8 Gracemont cores. The Tiger Lake-UP3 series processors also include 2 Golden Cove cores and 8 Gracemont cores. These processors come in two configurations with GT2 and GT3 Xe graphics and 96 executable units.
Other features of this platform include support for Thunderbolt 4, PCIe Gen 5.0 and WiFi 6E. Alder Lake-P processors in memory support both LPDDR5 and DDR5 configurations. Intel is likely to launch the Alder Lake-P series with LPDDR5 memory and replace the Tiger Lake-H with DDR5.
New Intel Alder Lake-M series processors will replace the Tiger Lake-UP4 platform. These processors have a maximum of 10 cores, including 2 Golden Cove cores and 8 Gracemont cores. The Alder Lake-M series is equipped with up to 96 EU Xe integrated graphics and supports Thunderbolt 4, WiFi 6E and PCIe Gen 4. The laptops that will use the Alder Lake-M series are available in two models with LPDDR4X and LPDDR5 RAMs.
Alder Lake-P series processors will reportedly be available between November 2021 and March 2022, while the Alder Lake-M will be available between January 2022 and April 2022. To learn more about these processors, we’ll probably have to wait to see the Intel conference at ON and CES 2022.
