Intel will make new announcements at the CES 2022 press conference on January 4, and we talked about the products we expect. Here we expect the introduction of the mainstream 12th generation CPUs as well as the more affordable 600 series chipset compared to the Z690 chipset.
Three motherboard series, such as the H670, B660 and H610, seem likely to hit the market. However, there was nothing clear about the release dates and Chinese media made some leaks about it.
ITHome reports that the entry-level H610 as well as mid-range B660 motherboards will be available soon after the announcement. The source claims that both product lines will fall short in January and the overall price-dollar stimulus will be higher than in past generations (such as the H560/H510).
On the other hand, MyDrivers says that the B660 and H610 chip sedollar series will be introduced in January, and the H670 family will be delayed. In addition to the desktop 12th generation series, Alder mobile processors will also be introduced at CES 2022. Arc Alchemist external screen cards, on the other hand, create a different excitement.
