Intel has announced the preview of its upcoming 12th-generation processor line, dubbed Alder Lake. Just like its Lakefield predecessor, the Alder Lake chip will use ARM’s BIG.little architecture, which consists of high-performance and power-efficient CPU cores in a single processor, to the max. of power and performance.
But while Lakefield focuses on mobile devices only, Alder Lake will play a fundamental role in computing. That means Alder Lake will compete directly with Apple’s M1 chip.
However, Alder Lake will only be produced on a “more upgraded” process of 10nm SuperFin, on Intel’s 11th generation Tiger Lake chips. The new high-performance CPU cores will be called Golden Lake, and the energy-efficient cores will be called Gracemont.
The first devices equipped with the Alder Lake chip will arrive in the second half of 2021. Apparently Intel is also feeling a lot of pressure from Apple, following the very successful launch of Mac computers equipped with. ARM mobile chips. But whether Intel can beat Apple or not, let’s wait and see.
