In benchmark for the game Dota 2, Intel’s unreleased 12th-gen Alder Lake processor was spotted. Till now Intel has not revealed the exact date but the chipset was previewed earlier this year and the chipmaker stated that Alder Lake will ship by the end of the year.
The desktop processor would have 32GB of DDR5 memory, running at 4800MHz, and would have Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card according to benchmark data. The frame rate of the processor is 120 frames per second for the game, with the highest frame rate 549 fps and the lowest at 47 fps which makes it better for high-end gaming. HotHardware claims that unlike many of Intel’s heterogeneous core platform’s hybrid architecture designed processor may work for AAA gaming.
Benchmark results have not yet revealed the core count of the processor. According to the benchmark, the processor is clocked at 2.20GHz but it is not clear that it would be the final frequency.
Leaks also suggest that Intel’s 12th-gen Alder Lake would have 16 cores, in which eight-core could be for high efficiency and another eight could be for high performance. The processor is expected to support both DDR4 and DDR5 memory but users won’t be able to mix and match the different RAM standards on the same equipt.
Till now Intel has not revealed the exact date but the chipset was previewed earlier this year and the chipmaker stated that Alder Lake will ship by the end of the year.
An announcement for Alder Lake is likely for this year’s autumn, but it’s we are not clear that if Intel’s 12th-gen platform will be subjected to the same supply shortages which chip industry is facing this year.
