Intel will release 12th-Gen Core processors and 600 series motherboards in September
At this year’s CES 2021 exhibition, Intel hastily released the eleventh generation Core i9-11900K processor based on the Rocket Lake-S architecture. Due to the very difficult problems encountered in the manufacturing process, the Rocket Lake-S series processors still use the 14nm process.
At the meeting, Intel also announced the name of the next-generation desktop processor architecture, Alder Lake-S. Fortunately, this architecture was finally converted to 10nm. However, at the time Intel did not disclose the specific launch time of Alder Lake-S, only to say It will be listed in the second half of 2021.
Recently, it was reported that Intel will release the 12th-Gen Core processor with a 10nm process in September this year, and will also release the corresponding 600 series motherboard. Because the interface of this generation of the processor has been changed to LGA 1700, so cannot be used on previous motherboards.
In other words, the 500 series motherboards that will be released in February of this year may be the shortest-lived generation motherboards. Of course, what is even more embarrassing is that the 11th generation Core desktop processors will not be released until March. It is really a transitional product.
Intel previously announced that the Alder Lake-S architecture will adopt a large and small core design similar to the ARM architecture, which can better schedule and allocate processor performance and reduce system power consumption.
