Intel's Alder Lake is the company's upcoming 12th gen 'Core i' series processor lineup and over the last few months, leaks related to it have been pouring in. Adding to the list of leaks is today's new information that we get regarding the Alder Lake-S processors. HXL on Twitter, who is a known leaker, has posted what appears to be an Intel roadmap for current and upcoming Workstation processors.

The roadmap has Alder Lake-S on it listed as an entry-level workstation or a high-end desktop (HEDT) part. It will pack up to 16 cores and will require a new W680 chipset, on the LGA 1700 socket. This new chipset will allegedly succeed the current W580 chipset built for Rocket Lake-S processors. For those wondering, the W series chipsets indicate Intel's HEDT motherboard parts.

I'm excited to see how this one plays out. AMD has done a great job with Ryzen, but having Intel at the top of their game again will only make things better for consumers. Competition is always needed, it's never good to always have one company always at the top. The whole "big core," "little core" thing has me intrigued as well!:emoji_beer:
