This morning, an anonymous source contacted the hardware site VideoCardz with information showing Intel’s path for releases in the first quarter of 2022. Apart from the Tiger Lake and Rocket Lake releases shown, the roadmap also runs the releases for both the hybrid Alder Lake-S desktop and Alder Lake-P mobile vPRO processors.
When we talk about these two hybrid Alder Lake V PRO versions, they are usually not made for normal consumers or gamers, but for businesses. The two hybrids will offer validity, manage from an external setting and higher security level for up to fifteen months until the launch of the following series.
The specifications of the Alder Lake-S desktop model share the exact same core set which is 16 cores (8 + 8 cores) with 24 wires for model number i9-12900K, which has already provided information previously released. Age The Lake-P mobile model will offer fourteen cores, but split the cores by 6 + 8 and offer higher user efficiency and productivity under workload.
The Alder Lake series, when first released, was Intel’s first hybrid technology raid on their CPUs. Since then, with Tiger and Rocket Lake processors, to continue using hybrid technology into the future, including hardware-driven planning, design optimizations and energy-conscious core parking.
In terms of I / O, the Intel 12th generation Alder Lake CPU series will include both PCIe Gen 5 & PCIe Gen 4 support, Intel WiFi 6E (Gig +) and Thunderbolt 4 support. For memory, Alder Lake processors will come with a wide range of options, from DDR5 / DDR4 for desktop and LPDDR5 / LPDDR4 for mobility platform. The Alder Lake Desktop platform is also expected to adopt the ATX12VO power connector standard.

While the information leaked to VideoCardz shows that vPRO models will be supported by Windows 10, especially through 2022, it is unknown whether support for Windows 11 will be maintained after Windows 10 is replaced. With new compatibility information released for Windows 11, we may receive support when Microsoft launches the renewed Windows OS.
