In the case of Alder Lake, you will get "big" Golden Cove cores and "small" Gracemont cores. These will be fabbed on the new Enhanced 10nm SuperFin process. And of course, the new cores will be paired with a new version of Intel's Xe integrated graphics.
Some fresh leaks from known Twitter leaker HXL provide some new clues about these 12th Gen Core parts from Intel.
Alder Lake-M - 5W and 9W TDPThe lowest TDP parts are found in the Alder Lake-M lineup, for tablets Intel has 5W M5 models and for ultra-thin laptops there's the 9W U9.
Alder Lake-M5 will be offered in configurations with one big core and four small cores, and between 48 and 64 graphics execution units (EUs). The U9 lineup will get up to two big cores, eight small cores, and up to 96 EUs.
Alder Lake-P has new 28W TDP optionAlder Lake-P has three variants, with base TDP configurations ranging from 15W to 45W.
The Alder Lake-U15 gets up to two big cores, eight small cores, and 96 EUs. Next there's the new U28 option, which offers up to six big cores, eight small cores, and 96 EUs.
The fastest P-series chips are found in the Alder Lake-H45 lineup, which seems like a replacement for the current Tiger Lake-H35. These are chips for thin gaming laptops. The best configurations get six big cores, eight small cores, and 96 EUs. Intel is equipping the integrated graphics with a lot of EUs -- indicating H45 is also envisioned for systems without a discrete video card.
Alder Lake-S gets up to 55W parts for mobile workstations and gaming laptopsThe high-end of the mobile market will be served by the new Alder Lake-H55. This series actually falls under Alder Lake-S, it's a BGA version that will be used for mobile workstations and the highest-end gaming laptops. The fastest configuration has eight big cores, eight small cores, and 32 EUs. Basically, the H55 is designed to be used in combination with a discrete GPU.
