Intel Panther Lake gets early AIDA64 support
AIDA64 preparing groundwork for next-gen Intel CPUs.
The Intel Panther Lake CPU series is set to launch following the Arrow Lake series and its subsequent refresh. While the exact release date for Panther Lake remains unknown, a reasonable estimate places it between 2025 and 2026. These CPUs will mark the second generation of Intel processors designed for the desktop LGA-1851 socket, and this architecture will also be adapted for use in mobile chips.
The latest beta release of AIDA64 (version 6.92.6610), which was unveiled last week, has introduced “preliminary support” for the Panther Lake CPUs. Typically, preliminary support means that the software can now recognize unreleased processors. AIDA64 developers are often among the first to incorporate early GPU ID and CPU ID information into their software. It’s important to note, however, that this doesn’t necessarily imply full support for next-gen hardware. The software may still lack essential information such as core layout, clock speeds, or cache details unless this information can be directly retrieved from the CPU.
In addition to Panther Lake support, AIDA64 has also added support for the Clearwater Forest Xeon series. These Xeon CPUs, set to debut in 2025, will succeed the Sierra Forest series and are specifically designed for data-center use, focusing on the utilization of efficient cores.
The Panther Lake CPUs are set to incorporate new core architectures known as Cougar Cove (P-Cores) and Darkmont (E-Cores). The series will also mark Intel’s second generation of consumer CPUs to integrate the Xe²-LPG GPU architecture, following in the footsteps of 2024 Lunar Lake release, which is primarily designed for low-power devices.
