Visitors to CES 2022 were pleasantly surprised by the presentation of the Alder Lake-H family of processors. This is the 12th generation of Intel H family processors, which will be intended for both desktop and laptop computers. The main advantage of Alder Lake-H Intel processors is the support for DDR5 system memory. However, when fully loaded, it consumes only 45 watts of power.
Intel’s Alder Lake-H family processors also support Thunderbolt 4 and WiFi 6E wireless. Unfortunately, there is no PCI-E 5.0 fast data bus support. Three new models will be available to users. Intel Core i5 processors will convert data from 6 physical cores and 12 virtual processor cores. The more powerful Core i7 and Core i9 models will have 14 physical cores. The only exception will be the Core i7-12650H processor. Namely, it will have only 10 processor cores available for data transfer.
The new Intel processors of the Alder Lake-H family will be suitable for gaming as well as for the most serious work. According to the first measurements, these are expected to be much more powerful compared to the AMD Ryzen 5000 family of processors. Newcomers are expected to see the first computer systems in the next few weeks.
