All signs in heaven and earth indicate the impending premiere of Intel Alder Lake processors. The advent of new units could seriously harm AMD - leaks have surfaced on the network that indicate a huge performance gain. Intel pulls heavy guns - new processors can seriously hurt AMD.

We have been hearing about the premiere of Intel Alder Lake processors (12th generation Core) for a good few months, but their performance has so far been shrouded in mystery. Now that has changed - the first information about chip performance has appeared on one of the Chinese forums.

Intel Alder Lake processors will revolutionize computers

The Aldet Lake-S (12th generation Core) models are to use a hybrid architecture - the more efficient Golden Cove and weaker Gracemont cores will be combined in one system, and the production will use the new 10nm Enhanced SuperFin lithography. The changes should translate into improved efficiency and energy efficiency.

However, this is not the end of the revelation, because we can also expect support for DDR4 and DDR5 RAM and support for the PCI-Express 5.0 bus. It is worth noting, however, that to support the processors you will need new motherboards with the LGA 1700 socket and 600 series chipsets.

Performance of Intel Alder Lake processors

There is still some time until the premiere of the new processors, but some already have access to the hardware - one user of the Chinese BBS NGA forum articaled information on the performance of qualifying samples (QS) in the Cinebench R20 test. The disclosed data looks very promising.

The engineering sample of the top representative of the new series - Core i9-12900K (8 + 8 cores) offers 9300 points. However, I am talking about the version that works with lowered clocks. The qualifying sample with higher clocks is to reach about 11,300 points. This would mean that it will offer better performance than the Ryzen 9 5950X (16 cores) - the top competitor model here reaches about 10,400 points (the advantage would be about 8%).

The results of weaker models also look promising. Core i7-12700K (8 + 4 cores) is expected to offer around 9500 points, which is 11% more than Ryzen 9 5900X (12 cores), and Core i5-12600K (6 + 4 cores) around 7400 points, which is 23% more than the Ryzen 7 5800X (8 cores).

Intel will return to the throne of the performance king?

If the leaks work, Alder Lake processors could mess up the stationers and restore Intel's dominance. Of course, a lot here will also depend on the availability and prices of equipment - this information will be known only after the premiere of the units, which is probably in the fourth quarter of this year.

It is also not known what the operation of the new processors will look like (especially since they will be completely new designs with many new elements). Information is coming from the network about minor problems with the operation of engineering samples. Additionally, it is said that the full potential of the hybrid units will only be available under Windows 11.
