Intel has not yet released all the processors of the Alder Lake family (Core 12), and the next generation flagship, Raptor Lake, has already appeared on the Web. It is expected that these processors will be released by the end of next year and will differ from Alder Lake in more cores and slightly increased frequency.
In this case, there are 24 computing cores – 8 large (new generation, Raptor Cove) and 16 small (current generation, Gracemont). Only large ones support multithreading, so the CPU allows 32 threads to execute at the same time. The processor was tested on a platform with DDR5 memory, but according to rumors, Intel in the next generation of the CPU will retain the ability to choose the type of memory – DDR5 or DDR4. The workflow and socket will remain the same as for Alder Lake.
