Something to look ahead to: Intel’s high-powered Alder Lake-HX cellular platform is predicted to be introduced on May 10 on the firm’s Vision 2022 occasion. The chips will assist PCIe Gen 5 and CPUs with as much as 16 cores, each firsts for notebooks.
Rumors have been circulating for some time that Intel plans to launch cellular CPUs that includes 16 cores, and right this moment’s leak confirms that. Videocardz has simply printed a slide containing the complete specs of the chipmaker’s Alder Lake-HX lineup.
These chips might be desktop CPU dies put in on a BGA package deal, which can reportedly have the identical size and width as desktop LGA (45×37.5mm), albeit with a lowered top from 4.4mm to 2mm.
Alder Lake-HX can even be the primary cellular platform to characteristic PCIe Gen5, having a complete of 48 PCIe lanes (Gen5x16 + Gen4x20 + Gen3x12). As a comparability, Intel’s present flagship pocket book platform, Alder Lake-H, options simply 16 Gen4 lanes and 12 Gen3 lanes.
These new chips can even characteristic intensive overclocking performance, supporting DDR5 with XMP 3.0 profiles, Dynamic Memory Boost, Efficient-core overclocking, in addition to up to date Intel Speed Optimizer and Extreme Tuning Utility.
Cooling these SKUs goes to be no simple job, as the whole lineup is rated for a 55W base TDP and a whopping 157W Turbo TDP, in comparison with Alder Lake-H chips that go as much as simply 45/115W.
Because these CPUs are based mostly on desktop silicon, they’ll characteristic a considerably weaker iGPU, having a most of 32 GPU cores, in comparison with the 96 discovered on high-end AL-H components. However, most of those chips will most likely be paired with a devoted GPU, so it is not that large of a loss.
It’s believed that Intel will formally announce the Alder Lake-HX platform on May 10 at their Vision 2022 occasion.
