There is no doubt that Intel has put the accelerator in its roadmap for future versions of desktop processors, at the recent launch of Rocket Lake-S we have to add that Alder Lake-S will be released in a few months to be replaced in less than a year by Raptor Lake. This output rate could be slightly delayed according to an Intel roadmap.
Alder Lake-S release date slips
As qualifying samples are sold on the Chinese black market for values over $ 1000, it looks like the Intel Alder Lake-S release date has slipped a bit, as if factoring in the leaf. of route that has been disclosed and that would have originated from Intel itself, we can see how the Alder Lake-S have been delayed by one quarter and will coincide with the launch of Alder Lake-P
The date does not surprise us in the case of the Alder Lake-P, but in the case of the Alder Lake-S, since we were expecting them by the end of this year and everything indicated that we were going to have Intel Gen 12 at the end of the year. All the more so when the qualification samples, which are already the final fully functional design, are in the hands of the assemblers and the performance tests have been seen.
The case of Alder Lake-P on the roadmap is curious, it seems that the BGA configuration with 8 Golden Cove cores, apart from the 8 Gracemont cores, will not be available during the initial launch of the Alder Lake-P which will be given in the first quarter of 2022. The H55 will therefore have to wait a little longer. Lo más seguro es que finishes tanto en portátiles como en sobremesas, siendo un sucedor directo del Tiger Lake-B, la versión para escritorio del Tiger Lake-H, el cual también uses un empaquetado BGA en vez de socket, y port tanto soldado a the plaque.
Alder Lake will depend on the operating system for its performance
As we mentioned recently, all hybrid processors in which cores with the same ISA are combined, but with different power and consumption, require intelligent management of the operating system. This is why Intel must work in tandem with Microsoft to provide CPU resources. the surprise? It looks like Windows won’t be optimized for Alder Lake until May 2023.
It must be taken into account that we are facing an already old roadmap, which was created before Microsoft decided to sell one of the biggest updates to Windows 10 as its successor as a marketing strategy. Let’s not forget that Microsoft and Intel have promised optimizations in Windows to get more performance from Alder Lake, which includes optimizations in the operating system and the way it manages its processes and manages them around hardware resources. .
Finally, we know that Intel has long had a patent to integrate process management in execution threads in a hybrid processor from the CPU itself, but we do not know if this is the case with Alder. Lake or we’re going to see it integrated into future Intel processors. In any case, it is possible that the delay in the date of the Alder Lake by Intel is linked to the performance of the latter under Windows.
