Code-named Alder Lake S-series and H-series, the new processors are enhanced to accelerate Internet of Things (IoT) application innovation. The processors offer retail, manufacturing, healthcare and digital safety customers increased core counts and advanced graphics/media/display and AI capabilities, as well as a wide range of price, performance and power.

“From enabling rich visual experiences across a variety of clients, to running mixed criticality workloads on a single edge platform, the 12th Gen Intel Core processors empower our customers to take the biggest step yet toward creating a software-defined world at the edge,” says John Healy, Intel vice president of the Internet of Things Group and general manager of Platform Management and Customer Enablement.

With the combination of the company’s new performance hybrid architecture and Intel 7 process technology, the 12th Gen Intel Core processor family is offered as delivering key features that set it apart from other solutions available for retail, healthcare, manufacturing and video, including:

  • High computing performance and flexibility for heavier IoT workloads.
  • Accelerated AI and deep learning capabilities without additional hardware.
  • Embedded use condition reliability.
  • Enhanced integrated graphics processing units to support 4K and 8K displays.
  • Hardware-based security to defend vulnerable IoT devices against attack.
  • A strong ecosystem and open-source communities to support multiple operating systems, enabling IoT customers to choose suitable operating systems for their target applications.

The Alder Lake S-series 12th Gen Intel Core desktop processors for IoT are up to 1.36 times faster in single-thread performance, up to 1.35 times faster in multithread performance, up to 1.94 times faster in graphics performance and up to 2.81 times faster in GPU image classification inference performance compared with 10th Gen Intel Core processors. The 12th Gen Intel Core desktop processors for IoT contain Intel UHD Graphics 770 driven by Intel Xe architecture supporting display virtualization and up to four independent displays.

Support for PCIe 5.0/PCIe 4.0 and DDR5/DDR4 memory combined with security and manageability features and AI enablement are designed to help boost productivity and fuel future innovation in IoT applications. IoT SKUs feature up to 16 cores and 24 threads at 35W to 65W TDP, real-time capabilities, long-life availability and long-term software support.

Alder Lake H-series 12th Gen Intel Core mobile processors for IoT have been estimated to be up to 1.04 times faster in single-thread performance, up to 1.18 times faster in multithread performance and up to 2.29 times faster in graphics performance compared with 11th Gen Intel Core processors. These SKUs feature up to 14 cores and 20 threads at 35W to 45W TDP.

The company is also announcing U-series and P-series of 12th Gen Intel Core processors with a TDP range from 15W to 28W. Four display pipes allow for complete video wall deployments with rich, immersive Intel Iris Xe graphics, combined with AI enablement for inferencing and machine vision scenarios.

The 12th Gen Core processors already have more than 80 IoT customers participating in Intel’s Early Access Program. Alder Lake S-series is expected to be available in January 2022; Alder Lake H-series is expected to be available in April 2022.
