Intel Alder Lake-S CPU Specs Leak
Mike Sanders / 10 months ago
With Intel expected to announce the launch of its new Alder Lake-S processors within the next couple of months, we are fast approaching the timeframe where we can start to expect to see a number of ‘leaks’ appear online regarding them. This is, after all, never usual when a big tech release is just on the horizon. – Coming in a report via Videocardz, however, it would appear that we may have just entered this arena as specifications for a number of CPU models from that upcoming series have just leaked online.
Intel Alder Lake-S
Now, as always when it comes to product leaks, and particularly ones that have come a significant time before the expected launch date, this information should clearly be taken with a grain of salt. Following the ‘leaked’ specifications below, however, we do get an interesting window into what three of the main Alder Lake-S Intel CPUs might represent. – Firstly we seemingly have confirmation of the big.Little core structure with different clock speeds listed for each. While these are pretty high in themselves, it should definitely be noted that Alder Lake-S will, presuming anything exceptionally usual, will be transitioning to a 10nm node design (better late than never right?) and as such, the performance gains expected from this new Intel CPU platform are clearly very high.
What Do We Think?
Without a doubt, the most interesting nugget of information presented here comes in the form of the presumable flagship i9-12900K. With it set to feature 8 big and 8 small cores, and apparently capable of handling a boost of up to 5.3 GHz with 5.0 GHz all-core this definitely sounds amazingly potent. Of course, there is the entirely valid question of how toasty this is going to run at full load, on the whole though, as we’d often said over the last 9 months, Alder Lake-S is going to be Intel’s first true response to AMD Ryzen and, judging by this information, it’s going to be every bit as good as we all hope!
