The new CPU-Z version arrives, supports Alder Lake, DDR5, XMP 3.0
CPUID (pass Oversized) CPU-Z 1.97 released today now supports Intel’s upcoming 12th generation Alder Lake Processor, 600 series chipset and DDR5 memory.The latest update of popular software indicates that Alder Lake will make its debut in the fall of 2021 and strive for a place on the list Best CPU.
The latest version of the change log specifically details the Core i9-12900K, Core i7-12700K and Core i5-12600KThe above chips are the top SKUs of their respective categories, with the fastest clock speed and unlocked overclocking multiples.Intel’s documents and multiple leaks have confirmed that Alder Lake will reside in the new LGA1700 socket, Which means that the new motherboard is also in transit.
The Alder Lake motherboard will be based on 600 series chipset, According to Intel’s latest chipset driver. As expected, Intel will provide a large number of chipsets that cater to different consumers. The most interesting part of the driver is the mention of the X699 chipset, which means that Intel may return to the HEDT (high-end desktop) field through Alder Lake.
Intel brags during its period Intel Architecture Day 2021 Event, Alder Lake will support PCIe 5.0 Interface and DDR5 Memory, they will be the first consumer chips to do so. PCIe 5.0 provides throughput of up to 128 GBps, which will open the door to a new era of graphics cards and SSDs. However, outside of the data center, server, or corporate environment, we do not see the benefits of PCIe 5.0.even though Best graphics card It is impossible to saturate the PCIe 4.0 interface, so PCIe 5.0 will not represent an upgrade for ordinary consumers. On the other hand, SSD may be more satisfied with the extra bandwidth of PCIe 5.0.
Although we have seen it a long time ago DDR5-4800 benchmark test and Alder Lake, The original DDR5 memory may not be able to compete Best memorySince DDR4 first came out, this is to be expected, it is not much faster than the best DDR3 memory. Over time, DDR4 gradually matured and eventually became the mainstream format. The update log of CPU-Z 1.97 confirms that Intel will launch the next issue of XMP-XMP 3.0. JEDEC can reach up to DDR5-6400, but we have seen memory vendors increase the data rate to DDR5-10000Therefore, for Alder Lake users who do not want to manually configure overclocking DDR5 memory kits, XMP 3.0 will come in handy.
