A few days ago, rocketlake-s, the desktop version of Intel’s 11th generation core processor, completed the evaluation and lifting of the ban. However, for the majority of DIY enthusiasts, Intel’s new product, the 12th generation core alderlake-s, is expected to appear at the end of the year.
Alderlake-s will be Intel’s first batch of large-scale mass-produced 10nm desktop processors. Based on 10nm enhanced superfin technology, alderlake-s will adopt goldencove + gracemont’s hybrid architecture design of large and small cores. The change can be described as great, and Intel has high hopes for it.
At the same time, the 12th generation of core alderlake-s will support pcie5.0 protocol and ddr5 memory. Its motherboard interface is a 600 series chipset of lga1700. It is understood that lga1700 platform will be a long-term platform. In addition to alderlake-s launched at the end of 2021, it will also support the 12th and 13th generation of core processors in the future. According to a well-known foreign media report by TOMS hardware, Intel released an improved version of alderlake-s, code named Raptor lake-s, in 2022, according to the previously leaked document information.
Raptorlake-s is expected to be the optimized version of alderlake-s. it adopts a hybrid architecture (8 + 8 or 8 + 16) similar to alderlake-s, which further improves the frequency, cache structure and memory controller. In the future, Intel will release the product code named meteorlake in 2023. Meteorlake will adopt Intel 7Nm process technology, and further improve the core microarchitecture and package interconnection.
