Intel 12th Gen Core Alder Lake-P now in hands of OEMs
High-performance hybrid CPUs are now shipping to laptops manufacturers.
Gregory M Bryant, Executive Vice President and General Manager at Intel Client Computing Group, today confirmed that Intel Alder Lake-P CPUs are now shipping to customers. This announcement of course means Intel partners, such as ODMs and OEMs, or simply put companies making laptops and Mini-PCs based on Intel’s mobile CPUs.
The Alder Lake-P platform is a successor to 11th Gen Core “Tiger Lake-H”. This newer architecture is to feature up to 6 Performance cores and 8 Efficient cores. The series is to become Intel’s first high-performance consumer offering featuring hybrid architecture, following a relatively small launch of Lakefield for low-power devices in 2020.

At the moment we are aware of three SKUs from the Alder Lake-P series: i9-12900HK, i7-12800H, and i7-12700H, all of which feature 14 cores and 20 threads. Naturally, the series will also feature Core i5 and possibly Core i3 CPUs with fewer cores enabled, however, there have thus far been no leaks regarding such parts.
Intel is more than likely to announce its 12th Gen Core laptop CPUs at CES 2022 in early January. According to the rumors, Alder Lake-P will be the first laptop generation to be offered with Intel’s own discrete Xe-HPG GPUs (Arc Alchemist).
