An early sample of Intel’s unpublished 12th generation Leppäjärvi-S the desktop processor was detected as the game benchmark Dota 2. The desktop processor had 32GB of DDR5 memory. according to comparative data, it operated at 4800 MHz and the system was equipped with Nvidia’s separate GeForce RTX 3080 graphics.
According to the benchmark data, the total device floated at only 120 frames per second in the game, with a frame rate exceeding 549 frames per second at its highest and less than 47 frames per second at its lowest. The high performance shows that despite previous speculation, Alder Lake is actually suitable for enthusiasts and high-end games. The use of Intel’s heterogeneous cores in the platform’s hybrid architecture had led some to speculate that the processor might not work in AAA games, but this doesn’t seem to be the case. HotHardware.
It is unclear how the processor is configured, as the comparison results do not reveal the number of cores. As a benchmark, the clock speed of the Intel processor was defined as 2.20 GHz, although it is unclear whether this is the last frequency at the time of delivery of the processor.
Past leaks suggest that Lake Alder’s high-end lineup could even be equipped 16 cores, although Intel ‘s new hybrid processor architecture means that up to eight of these cores are powerful cores, and another eight are dedicated to high performance. The processor is expected to support both DDR4 and DDR5 memory – although users will not be able to mix different RAM standards on the same hardware – and PCIe 5.0 will also be available in Alder Lake.
Although Intel had not disclosed the exact date, the chipset was previewed earlier this year at CES, and the wood chip manufacturer announced that Alder Lake will be delivered by the end of the year. An autumn announcement Alder Lake looks likely, but it’s unclear whether Intel’s 12th-generation platform will face the same supply shortfalls that have plagued the chip industry this year.
