After announcing the 12th generation H-series Intel Core processor for laptops at CES2022 earlier this year, Intel today announced the P-series and U-series chipsets on the 12th-generation Alder Lake laptop line. The company provided details after revealing some during the CES 2022 event. These Intel mobile processors are designed to power thin, lightweight laptops to improve performance and power efficiency. Let’s take a look at the details.
Intel 12th Generation Alder Lake U Series, P Series Chips Announced
Intel has announced a total of 20 chipsets under the latest P-series and U-series Alder Lake lineup.These include new ones P-series, U-series (15W), and U-series (9W) i3, i5, and i7 processors It powers a variety of thin and lightweight laptops released in 2022. The first laptops with the new 12th generation Alder Lake Intel Core CPU will be on the market in March.
Technically, the new P-series and U-series processors are similar to the high-end H-series siblings.For starters, the new P-series and U-series processors Hybrid architecture with a focus on performance and power efficiency By combining a dedicated performance core and an efficiency core.
In addition, P-series processors have much in common with high-end H-series processors, such as the number of cores.For example, the finest P-series chipsets The Intel Core i7 1280P processor uses the same 14-core design as the top-of-the-line i7 and i9H series processors... These include 6 performance cores and 8 efficient cores, but with lower clock speeds and overall performance for P-series processors.
The new U-series processors, on the other hand, have fewer cores than P-series chips.All U series chips Can pack up to 2 performance coresThe total number of cores (6-10) is determined by the number of efficiency cores.
With the new P-series and U-series chipsets for thin and lightweight laptops, Intel promises significant performance and battery life improvements with the addition of cores.The company says it The new 12th generation chip 70% improvement in multithreaded performance From previous 11th generation or AMD hardware. Intel also said the new Alder Lake processor outperforms Apple’s M1 and M1 Pro chipsets and the AMD Ryzen R75800U in benchmarking tasks such as photo editing and web browsing.
Besides these, the new Intel U-series and P-series chips Equipped with Intel’s integrated Iris XE GPUOEM has the following options Also integrates Intel’s latest ARCGPU, The company has already started shipping to OEM.In addition, all the latest technologies are supported, including: Wi-Fi 6E, Thunderbolt 4, PCIe 4.0, And memory support for DDR and LPDDR configurations.
