Although Intel 12th Generation Alder Lake processors have been introduced, low-budget 35W and 65W chips that appeal to a wider kiddos have not yet been released. We’ve talked about upcoming desktop processors many times before. Now, the technical specifications of all processors belonging to the Alder Lake-S family have been confirmed by official sources.
ASUS and Colorful included unreleased processors early in their validation listings. New CPUs are also supported with the latest BIOS versions. The most interesting part is the C0 or H0 classification, which means that Alder Lake silicone is used exclusively. As we wrote before, the chips coded as C0 express the hybrid structure with the combination of efficiency and performance cores. H0 coded chips lack efficiency cores and only contain performance cores. In other words, we can say that some of Intel’s 12th generation processors will not have a hybrid architecture.
On the other hand, there is a significant difference between the Core i5-12600K and the i5-12600. Offering 10 cores with the H0 silicon in the K series, Intel uses 6 cores in the non-K processor with the C0 silicon. Thus, the product range begins to divide.
Intel is now gearing up to announce its full desktop 12th Gen Core lineup at its CES 2022 press conference. Alongside the new CPUs we will see the H670, B660 and H610 chipset series.
