Intel Core i9-12900K Alder Lake CPU High-Res, Hybrid SKU captures images to highlight new hardware guide scheduling
The latest high resolution images of the Intel Core i9-12900K Alder Leak flagship CPU have been leaked. UK_NS. Laker has acquired the latest engineering model of the chip, which was being sold on the Chinese black market at a starting price of امریکی 700.
Intel Core i9-12900K Elder Leak Flagship CPU High Race Photos, New Hardware Guided Scheduling On Board
The images give us a slightly better glimpse of the Intel Core i9-12900K CPU which is the flagship within the Alder Lake 12th General Core lineup and also has 1700 contact pads that will make it compatible with LGA 1700 motherboards. The specific CPU model ‘QX7H’ is different and comes in ‘ES2’ specifications. Side profile pictures show that the PCB on the chip is quite thick and will have a more rectangular design than the square Intel chips we’ve seen over a decade.
In addition to the photos, we managed to capture a new slide for Intel Elder Lake CPUs where the company outlined its brand new HGS + (Hardware Guide Scheduling +) feature. Intel says its new core architecture with HGS + prioritizes workload delivery and sends work on the best thread of work, thus improving performance per watt. This feature will be enabled by default (on selected SKUs) and no user action is required to enable this technology. The HGS + feature is a combination of hardware support for processor and software optimization in the latest Windows (11) operating system.
This technology should not be confused with Intel’s Thread Director as it is another feature set for Intel Elder Leak CPUs but both the Thread Director and HGS + will work together to make Intel’s 12 on Windows 11 Improving the performance of hybrid CPUs such as general processors. Learn more about Intel’s new HGS technology in an article published by Underfox on Coreteks.
It is possible that the new HGS + Scheduler only works on Intel Alder Lake 12th Gen CPUs with hybrid core technology. We know that some SKUs will only have Golden Core courses so HGS + will not be used much on these chips.
Intel Core i9-12900K 16 Core / 24 Thread Desktop CPU
The Intel Core i9-12900K will be the flagship chip in the 12th General Elder Lake Desktop CPU lineup. It will have 8 golden cores and 8 greasemont cores for a total of 16 cores (8 + 8) and 24 threads (16 + 8). The P-cores (Golden Cove) will work with 1-2 active cores with 5.3 GHz and all core active with 5.0 GHz at maximum boosting frequency while the e-core (Graysmont) will work at 3.90 GHz. Will do Up to 4 cores and 3.7 GHz when all cores are loaded.
The CPU will have 30 MBL3 cache and TDP values are maintained at 125W (PL1) and 228W (PL2). The ‘K’ variant is expected to retail for 5 599, while the non-K version is expected to retail for 50 509.
Intel’s Elder Leak desktop CPUs will include both DDR5 and DDR4 memory controllers, and the 600 series motherboards will also come with DDR5 / DDR4 specific options. Advanced motherboards will retain DDR5 while more mainstream offerings will also open up DDR4 support. The Intel Elder Leak CPU lineup is expected to launch in November with the respective Z690 platform and DDR5 memory kits.
