Intel’s upcoming Alder Lake-P CPUs for laptops may have a maximum of 14 cores and a TDP of 12 to 45 watts, according to a leaked roadmap. The roadmap also shows minimalist Alder Lake-M laptop CPUs with up to 10 cores and TDPs from 7 to 15 watts.
The leaked roadmap posted by him Wccftech, confirms that Alder Lake-P laptop chips will feature Xe GPUs with up to 96 implementation units. CPUs also receive standard support for DDR5, Lpddr5, PCIe 5.0, Thunderbolt 4, and Wi-Fi 6E. According to Wccftech, the top-rated model will have six high-performance Golden Cove cores with hyper-threading and eight efficient Gracemont cores without hyper-threading. This equates to 14 cores and 20 threads.
Clock speeds are not mentioned, but the chip confirms that the Alder Lake-P chips get a TDP between 12W and 45W, depending on the model. Thus, this series serves as a replacement for the current Tiger Lake H45, H35 and UP3 chipsets, which are also designed for laptops and offer TDPs between 12W and 45W.
Wccftech’s roadmap also mentions the arrival of the Alder Lake-M series of laptop processors. These chips will have a maximum of ten cores, which according to Wccftech comes down to two powerful cores and eight energy-saving cores. Compatible with Previously Leaked Information About Intel’s upcoming frugal laptop chips.
This gives CPUs TDPs between 7 and 15 watts. The roadmap also talks about support for PCIe 4.0, Lpddr4x and Lpddr5 memory. It appears that PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 support is not present in this segment. On top of that, Thunderbolt 4 support, Wi-Fi 6E, and Alder Lake-M chips are mentioned getting Xe GPUs with up to 96 EURO.
The roadmap states that Intel Alder Lake-P CPUs will go into production between November 2021 and March 2022. Alder Lake-M chips will follow later, between January and April 2022. It is not yet known when previous laptops with Alder Lake processors will appear on the market . Intel is expected to present its laptop chips at CES in January. The first Alder Lake desktop variants Expected in November.
