Both chips are expected to pair with Xe GT2 or GT3 iGPUs with up to 96 execution units (EUs).
Although the exact month when production will begin is unknown, it is expected to be between the month of November 2021 and March 2022 for the series Alder Lake Pand between January 2022 and April 2022 for the series Alder Lake M.
A notable change with the new processors Intel 12th Gen Core is the inclusion of both high-performance and low-performance cores, which is common in mobile processors such as smartphone SoCs. During the event, the company also talked about its long-awaited gaming GPUs, with the first generation under its name “Alchemist” that will be released in early 2022 and will be manufactured by TSMC.
