Dynatron officially recommends its Q5 and Q6 coolers for Intel Alder Lake-S
While Intel Alder Lake-S is not here yet, parts required for the new platform are slowly becoming available.
Intel’s biggest mainstream CPU series upgrade is approaching. More and more compatible products are being unveiled as we approach the launch of Intel’s LGA1700 based processor series. Just last week TeamGroup DDR5 memory has gone on sale, while there are still no DDR5 compatible motherboards available for sale yet. Interestingly, a US-based Dynatrom company specializing in cooling equipment has already listed its Q5 and Q6 coolers supposedly compatible with the new LGA1700 socket.
The manufacturer specifically mentions the compatibility for the Intel Alder Lake-S series as well as the LGA1700 socket. Those are mainstream CPU series now rumored to launch in the fourth quarter of this year. Interestingly, both cooling solutions unveiled by Dynatron are designed for workstations and servers. In other words, those are not for consumer/gaming Alder Lake-S series but rather workstation series that are to share the same socket and silicon.
Details on the Intel Alder Lake-S workstation has leaked in April. These CPU series are to feature up to 16 cores and up to 125W TDP, although 65 and 35W variants are also to be expected. Those CPUs will use the same LGA1700 socket as the gaming series. According to leaked roadmaps, Alder Lake-S for workstation W680 chipset was set to launch in the third quarter, although the roadmap already incorrectly listed Rocket Lake-S as early Q1 2021 product and Sapphire Rapids as Q4 2021 launch, of these both have been delayed.
