Intel Alder Lake-HX will offer desktop-grade performance on notebooks

To meet the needs of professionals, content creators and, more generally, users who need high-performance CPUs even on the go and on the move, it seems that Intel is planning the launch of Alder Lake-HX processors, which presumably will have a die Alder Lake-S with BGA packaging. As for the specifications, the Alder Lake-HX CPUs will have a TDP of 45 or 55W, eight Golden Cove cores and eight Gracemont cores, 30MB of cache and the integrated Xe-LP GPU with 32 Execution Units. Unfortunately, the operating frequencies have not been specified, but the processors should take advantage of a BGA1964-ADL-S interposer to provide enough pin and power to the chips.

In fact, the Santa Clara-based company has divided the mobile CPU family based on the Alder Lake architecture into two distinct sections: the first, Alder Lake-H, equipped with up to six Golden Cove cores and eight Gracemont, for high-end devices. medium and high, and the second, characterized by the Alder Lake-U and Alder Lake-P series, for entry-level configurations. Further confirmation concerning the arrival of Alder Lake-HX comes from @Komachi_Ensaka, who has published a document which speaks of an Intel Alder Lake-HX ES CRB kit for development and testing.

We recently got to try the new Intel NUC 12 Extreme Dragon Canyon, the latest iteration of the high-performance segment of the NUC family. For further information, we recommend that you read our full review.
