Alder Lake is Intel's codename for the upcoming 12th-generation of Intel Core processors based on a hybrid architecture utilizing Golden Cove high-performance cores and Gracemont power-saving cores.[1][2] Intel expects to launch Alder Lake in the second half of 2021. It is to be fabricated using Intel's Intel 7 process.[3][4]

New features

Alder Lake was confirmed by Intel during the company's Architecture Day 2020.[1]

Alder Lake processors are based on a new hybrid architecture that utilizes two core types: high-performance and high-efficiency. According to Intel, Alder Lake is a "performance hybrid" in their portfolio as it focuses on performance. Intel also claims that Alder Lake will have their best performance per watt.[1]


  • Golden Cove high-performance CPU cores
    • New instruction set extensions[5]
  • Gracemont high-efficiency CPU cores
  • Next generation hardware scheduler;[1] adding support for these advanced scheduling capabilities will require Microsoft to add support for them to x86-64 Windows.[6]
