Furthermore, Intel provided an update about the 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake". Desktop and laptop variants of the 10nm Alder Lake will be qualified for production in the second half of 2021. It's believed the first Alder Lake parts will hit the market before the end of this year.
As we look ahead, we are excited about the capabilities we are bringing to customers with Alder Lake for mobile and desktop PCs and Sapphire Rapids for the data center. These products take advantage of our Enhanced SuperFin process technology and numerous architectural improvements and both are broadly sampling to customers.
We will qualify Alder Lake desktop and notebook for production and begin our volume ramp in the second half of 2021 and we expect production qualification of Sapphire Rapids at the end of 2021.
