Three Intel 12-generation Core original radiators leaked
Intel 12th-generation Alder Lake processors will switch to LGA 1700 sockets. Since the shape of the socket has changed from a 37.5*37.5mm square to a 37.5*45mm rectangle, the hole spacing of the heat sink has also changed. The 75mm of the previous LGA 15xx/1200 socket was changed to 78mm. In addition, the height is reduced by 0.8mm, which will be lower, so the current radiators have to be replaced with new fasteners to support the new platform. For Intel, they have to prepare a new original radiator.
Twitter user @ayxerious released a slide show of the original radiator similar to the 12th generation Core processor. Of course, he is not sure of the authenticity of this information. These original radiators are for 65W Alder Lake-S processors, and there are three models: RH1, RM1, and RS1. The design of the new radiator seems to add an outer ring around the fan on the basis of the current one. Of course, it is not clear that the radiators have copper plugs inside.
Compared with the original radiator delivered by AMD, Intel’s current radiator is indeed much inferior, both in terms of heat dissipation capacity and styling, and the next generation of processors may want to earn back points in this regard.
