There are rumors that Intel may launch its first 12th-generation “Alder Lake” processor this fall.according to Igor’s Laboratory, Intel plans to release only K and KF series CPUs this fall Z690 motherboard. If these chips are released, we will see if they are in Best CPU.
Since the K and KF series CPUs have been unlocked for overclocking, we should expect to see some higher-end motherboards at the beginning, especially since the new chipsets are expected to support PCIe 5.0.
However, this statement should be reserved, because even Samsung PCIe 5.0 SSD will not be ready until the second quarter of 2022. There may be no PCIe 5.0 driver at all to take advantage of this feature.
Alder Lake According to reports, DDR4 and DDR5 memory will also be supported. With dual compatibility, it makes sense to support PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 at the same time, but this may not be feasible in the early days. But again, in order to encourage some users to upgrade, it may have to wait for various drives and memory sticks to be listed.
According to sources, the rest of the CPU lineup, including H670, B660 and H610 chipsets, is unlikely to appear before CES 2022 is released.
There are rumors that Intel’s Alder Lake CPU and Z690 chipset can provide many features, including its PCIe 5.0 support, DDR5, Single-threaded performance potential increase by 20%, And 2 times the multi-threading performance. We may see what will actually happen later this year.
