The Alder Lake chips are based on Intel's new 10nm SuperFin process.
The Intel Core i9-11900K, the flagship chipset, is set to be available in the first quarter of 2021 and has also provided the latest preview of this series as CES 2021. It also has support for DDR4 RAM at 3200MHz, a total of 20 PCIe 4.0 lanes, and also supports backward compatibility with the Intel 400 series chipsets.
In addition to significantly increasing the core counts, Intel said the new Ice Lake processors will also bring big gains in performance, integrated AI and security.More news: Lucasfilm Games returns as site official Star Wars games and more
Firstly, the new 11th Gen H-Series processors add PCIe 4.0 support for the faster RTX 3000 Series graphics we're bound to see on upcoming gaming laptops.
Intel Corp. took to the online stage at the Consumer Electronics Show today to unveil its latest families of computer processors, at a time when it faces stiff competition from rivals such as Advanced Micro Devices Inc. and Apple Inc.in the gaming, personal computing and mobile markets. But, the company promises up to 19% performance improvement over its predecessor.
Intel 10-nanometer (nm) SuperFin technology, delivering industry-leading performance, Intel® Iris® X graphics and the world's biggest Wi-Fi improvement in 20 years - with integrated Intel® Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+) that enables up to six times faster uploads and downloads in the office and almost three times faster speeds at home versus standard Wi-Fi 5. It performs 23% faster when using Microsoft Office and 2.3x faster video or photo editing.More news: Ken Jennings to host first Jeopardy!' episode on Monday
Intel also announced an 8-core processor that will start shipping later this quarter.
What about 10nm? Of course, we're all much more interested in hearing about when Intel will finally introduce its first 10nm desktop processors. It will combine the high-performance cores and high-efficiency cores, similar to how the Apple M1 chips function. Of these, one will focus on high-performance while the other on high efficiency.More news: Ipswich lockdown lifted but restrictions still in place
"Alder Lake looks very interesting, but it's hard to gauge its impact without better understanding performance per watt", Moorhead said, noting that Intel will tell more about the new chip closer to its release date.
