Intel unveiled the 12th Generation Intel Core processor family which includes 60 processors and will power more than 500 designs in all segments of PC products, from desktop and gaming computers to ultra-thin and light laptops. The 12th Generation Intel Core processors are the first to be based on Intel 7 process technology. The new hybrid performance architecture will deliver major performance gains across all PC workloads.
The company also unlocked the “K” desktop processors, which they claim include the world’s best gaming processor – the 12th generation Intel Core i9-12900K. It has a maximum turbo boost of up to 5.2 GHz and 16 cores and 24 threads which can reach new heights of performance.
One of the new launches also includes the new 65 and 35 watt 12th Gen Intel Core desktop processors that deliver good power and scalable performance for productivity, creation and gaming.
Other features added to the new lineup include the H-series mobile processors with the flagship Intel Core i9-12900HK, the fastest mobile processor and the best mobile gaming platform based on the Intel 7 process. Intel also announced Intel vPro platform offerings that include Intel vPro Essentials and Intel vPro Enterprise. This is expanded business support for small and large businesses.
The 12th Generation Intel Core processor family represents the company’s most scalable line to date, powering designs for consumer, IoT, enterprise and other applications. “Intel’s new performance hybrid architecture is helping to accelerate the pace of innovation and the future of IT. And, with the introduction of 12th Generation Intel Core mobile processors, we’re unlocking new experiences and setting the standard for performance with the fastest processor for a laptop – ever, “said Gregory Bryant, EVP and General Manager, Intel Client Computing Group.
At CES 2022, Intel spear 12th generation Intel Core processors, codenamed Alder Lake S-series and H-series. Enhanced to accelerate IoT applications and innovation, the new processors give manufacturing, retail, healthcare and digital security customers more cores; advanced graphics, display, media; and the capabilities of AI.
According to Intel, this is their first family of processors that is improved for the edge to provide a performance hybrid architecture to combine performance cores and efficient cores with Intel Thread Director.
The main features include:
- High flexibility and compute performance and for heavier IoT workloads.
- Accelerated deep learning and AI capabilities without additional hardware.
- Improved integrated GPU to support 4K and 8K displays.
- Hardware-based security to defend vulnerable IoT devices.
Compared to 10th Generation Intel Core processors. Alder Lake’s H-series processors for IoT rated up to 1.04 times faster in single-threaded performance, up to 1.18 times faster in multithreaded performance, and up to 2.29 times faster graphics performance compared to 11th Generation Intel Core processors. . These SKUs feature up to 14 cores and 20 threads at 35W to 45W TDP.
The new advancements will prove beneficial to industrial manufacturing, retail, banking, hospitality and education, healthcare and digital security customers. 12th Generation Intel Core processors have more than 80 IoT clients participating in Intel’s Early Access program. The Alder Lake S and Alder Lake H series are expected to be available in January 2022 and April 2022, respectively.
Laptop / PC
Intel says that with the 12th Generation Intel Core H processors, it has set the standard for the best performing laptop processors “on the planet.” The processor series is built on the Intel Process Node 7 with its first performance hybrid design. The H series is led by Intel Core i9-12900HK. It offers up to 40% higher performance for gaming experiences and up to 28% faster gameplay than i9-11980HK.
Intel will launch new devices with the 12th generation Intel Core H series, with its partners that include Asus, Acer, Dell, HP, MSI, Lenovo and Razer. Intel also unveiled a new ultraportable mobile processor – the P Series product line, which brings high levels of performance to thin and light laptops. The new process will feed systems from February 2022.
Key features of the 12th generation H-series processors include:
- Frequencies up to 5 GHz, 20 threads and 14 cores (6 P cores and 8 E cores).
- Extended memory support for DDR5 / LPDDR5 and DDR4 / LPDDR4 modules up to 4800 MT / s.
- PC connectivity to multiple 4K monitors and accessories and transfer speeds of up to 40 Gbps.
In addition to the 12th generation Intel Core processor, Intel Mobileye announced a new system on a chip (SoC) for autonomous vehicles (AV) – EyeQ Ultra. It is based on Mobileye’s EyeQ technology and does the job of 10 EyeQ5 SoCs in one package.
With the launch of the 12th generation Intel Core processor, Intel claims to have killed the competition. After falling behind AMD for a few years, Intel has once again become the manufacturer of the best processors. But the important question remains how long he will stay in mind.
