Intel Alder Lake Mobile to add a new performance segment with 55W

A known leaker HXL has leaked Intel’s upcoming 12th Gen Core series even before the full 11th Gen Core lineup has been announced. 

We have been hearing about Alder Lake mobile for a while now. It is a new product stack featuring Intel’s innovative Hydrid Technolgy, essentially copying ARM’s big.LITTLE approach to computing. Intel has already launched its Lakefield series based on this technology, however, but those were designed only for ultra-low power devices.

Alder Lake M

According to the leaked slide, Intel’s 12th Gen core mobile lineup will be divided into three main categories and five performance segments, each meant for a different product. Starting with Alder Lake M, the series will be split into M5 and U9 series, which are 5W and 9W respectively. Those will be used for tablets and ultra-thin designs. According to the leaked product stack, the Alder Lake-M5 will offer 1 big core and up to 4 small cores, a similar configuration to Lakefield. The U9 series will feature up to 2 big cores and up to 8 small cores.

Alder Lake P

The performance segment will be split into U15, U28, and H45 performance segments, each indicating power targets for the devices. It is revealed that the U15 series will be offered with up to 2 big cores and up to 8 small cores. The U28 power segment is a new addition to Intel mobile lineup. Those will feature up to 6 big cores and up to 8 small cores. All three planned SKUs would offer 96 Graphics Execution Units.

Alder Lake-H45 series is likely to replace the current Tiger Lake-H35. Those are targeted at portable gaming laptops. According to the leaked slide, Intel would offer up to 6 big cores and up to 8 small cores. Each of the three SKUs would also get 96 Execution Units, indicating that they are also meant to be used without discrete GPU.

Alder Lake-S

The new high-end performance segment with TDP ranging from 45W to 55W described in the slide as the ‘Muscle’ segment, will pack up to 8 big cores and up to 8 small cores. Each of the three SKUs would offer 32 EUs, which means that those are designed for gaming machines with discrete GPU options.

The whole lineup confirms that Intel has big plans for its new Hybrid Technology-based series. Intel Alder Lake is expected to future a combination of high-performance “big” cores based on Golden Cove architecture and high-efficiency “small cores” based on Gracemont core architecture. Intel will also be launching Alder Lake for desktops with similar configurations to the mobile H45 and H55 series, depending on the segment.
