Intel introduced Alder Lake, its new processors, and already broke a record

Intel presented its new twelfth generation processors this Wednesday: Alder Lake brings the biggest change in CPU architecture in 10 years, changes the socket type and fires a dart to its main competitor, AMD: “The Core i9-12900K It is the best processor in the world for video games”, They assure.

With DDR5 RAM and PCIe 5.0, Alder Lake aims to be the fastest on the market for gaming and heavy tasks. As against, it requires a new type of motherboard, so if you want to make the leap, you will have to invest enough money.

“New Hybrid Architecture Offers Increased Multithreading Performance [multithread], which allows creating content up to 2 times faster compared to the previous generation ”, explained the company.

Six new desktop processors mark the transition to memory DDR5 and connectivity PCIe 5.0: all this results in higher data transfer speeds and less latency in the processes.

For reference, the current standard is DDR4 and PCIe 3.0. Alder Lake will also be DDR4 compliant.

All this will have to be placed in a new type of socket (the place where the processor is embedded), the LGA 1700, which was presented together with the new chipset, called Z690.

“The performance of the hybrid architecture of the 12th Generation Intel Core processors is an architectural change that has been made possible by close software and hardware co-engineering that will deliver new levels of leadership performance for generations“said Gregory Bryant, Intel executive vice president.

On the new chipset, they explained: “The new PCIe Gen 4.0 lanes offer a total of 28 lanes outside the chipset, the integrated USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 provides up to twice the bandwidth, the DMI Gen 4.0 increases the performance of the chipset to the CPU for fast access to peripheral devices and to the network”.

Performance and record

According to the company, Alder Lake yields up to 19% more than its previous generation, but one of the novelties is that the company broke a record for “overclocking”, a system by which the microprocessor is tested above its capabilities.

With the help of some tanks of liquid nitrogen, which are used to cool the high temperatures raised by these processors, the Splave overclocker put a Core i9-12900K at 6.8 GHz frequency, 31% above capabilities, setting an industry record.

“The six unlocked desktop processors that the company introduced are the first to build on Intel’s hybrid performance architecture, which combines performance cores (P cores), the highest performing CPU core the company has ever built, and efficient cores (E cores), designed for scalable performance of multi-threaded workloads, ”explained Intel.

Clarín consulted the prices, but they are not in Argentina yet. It is known that they will come out on November 4 and that the reference in dollars is: they will come out between 264 and 589 dollars.

To be the best processor for video games, the gamers they will have to invest a good coin: they will have to buy new mothers for the new processor, in addition to DDR5 memory which, due to the novelty, will have a high price.
