Intel’s desktop Alder Lake processor codenamed LGA1700 socket will be unveiled later this year. But enthusiastic radiator manufacturers have claimed that they have prepared products for these upcoming CPUs. Rego The blogger found that it seems to be one of the first companies to announce an entry-level heatsink product line for Intel’s 12th-generation Core processors @momomo_us.
Rego said on Monday It has developed a series of RGD-3000 series cooling systems, specifically designed for Intel Alder Lake-S processors in LGA1700 package. The series includes different models that can handle energy-efficient processors with 35W TDP, high-end audiophile CPUs with 125W TDP, and all models in between. But please note that the picture above is the previous Rego model. The company has not released any pictures of its complete LGA 1700 cooler.
Rego did not disclose many details of its RGD-3000 series coolers, but pointed out that their weight will be between 234 and 592 grams. Generally, the weight of high-end air coolers is much heavier nowadays, so Rego may release entry-level devices mainly for OEMs and ODMs here.
Intel’s LGA1700 socket Compared with the existing mainstream Intel CPU socket models, there are significant differences. Although the new dimensions retain a width of 37.5 mm, it has been extended to 45 mm in length. More importantly, compared with today’s processors (6.5 mm vs. 7.5 mm), the z-height of the new CPU will be reduced by 1 mm. One millimeter may seem trivial, but it is important to connect the heat sink very tightly to the surface of the CPU, so the difference of one millimeter is very important here.
Although Intel’s Alder Lake processors are not yet available to consumers, Intel said last week that it will ship Alder Lake processors to its customers in the second half of 2021.
Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger said: “Our future customer roadmap remains strong, and we expect to ship millions of Alder Lake to customers in the second half of the year. Find Alpha).
Although there are not many millions of units, and the vast majority may be notebook computer chips, desktop PC manufacturers still need to prepare for the release, which means purchasing new coolers and other components.
One thing to note is that Rego has officially positioned its RGD-3000 cooler in various dedicated systems of 1U, 1.5U, 2U and 3U. But keep in mind that Intel usually releases regular desktop processors before embedded, workstation, and server versions, so Rego’s RGD-3000 series may be used for consumer desktops first.
