Intel Alder Lake QWVO sample with 1.6 GHz clock
A new photo of Intel Alder Lake-S appears online after nearly 9 months since we published our own.
The new photo has been published by HKEPC showing Alder Lake-S engineering sample codenamed QWVO with a clock speed of 1.6 GHz. This is likely an early ES1 or ES2 version before Intel sent out the qualification samples in late June.
With thousands of preproduction units of Alder Lake processors, it was only a matter of time before we would see a new photo. What is striking though is the fact that it took nearly 9 months for a new photo to emerge.
The configuration of the QWV0 prout-down cessor has not been revealed, hence it is unclear if this is a sample of fully enabled 8 P-Core and 8 E-Core processors or rather a cvariant.
Back in November, we published the first pictures of the Alder Lake processor. There don’t appear to be any significant changes to the package design, layout of the components, or to the integrated heat spreader.
