Intel Alder Lake-S arrives in 2021 with 16 colors, DDR5, PCIe 4.0, LGA 1700 socket and 10nm
New leak confirms socket and other features expected on processor
A technical data document posted on Intel’s development resources page ended up revealing – more or less officially – some important features already expected for its “next next” generation of desktop CPUs, Alder Lake-S . The debut of a new socket , the LGA 1700 , is among that information.
According to WCCFTech, we can also expect 16 cores on Alder Lake-S, with 32 threads via HyperThreading, compatibility with DDR5, and PCIe 4.0, obviously. The most interesting part that is speculated for the Alder Lake-S is that the components will be based on new generation Golden Cove cores, representing a more relevant leap in technologies compared to what Intel has launched in recent years.
In addition, Intel should incorporate its BIG little style into the components, integrating Gracemont cores in addition to Golden Cove, also incorporating Xe graphics, which should appear earlier in Rocket Lake.
The documents we see listed above were found for the first time by the @Momomo_US account on Twitter , which takes the credits.
Alder Lake-S CPUs will be manufactured in the 10nm ++ process, or so you expect. The new LGA 1700 socket is entirely different from what we currently have on Intel partner motherboards, so backward compatibility will not be an option. Starting with its own shape , 45 x 37.5 mm, which makes it more rectangular than its predecessors. Intel’s plan with the new socket would be to offer the first platform with DDR5 support to arrive in stores, but that doesn’t just depend on the manufacturer.
The Alder Lake-S generation of Intel processors is expected by the end of the year 2021 or, perhaps, the beginning of 2022. The piece of the table below was organized by WCCFTech and compares the latest processor generations from the manufacturer:
