Exposure to 12th Gen Intel Core Series Alder Lake-S Power Consumption
Text: Roy Chan / News Center
Intel 12th Gen Core series processors have been reported frequently recently. Rumors indicate that Intel is expected to launch code-named Alder Lake-S series products between October and November. Alder Lake-S will adopt the Intel 7 process (i.e. 10nm Enhanced SuperFin) and replace it. In the new hybrid CPU core architecture, there is more information about Alder Lake-S exposed! FCPOWERUP broke the news Intel recently announced the 12V power supply2 power supply requirements for the motherboard. Among them is a processor that has never seen a 165W TDP before.
According to FCPOWERUP presented a document of “Capacity Recommendations of PSU 12V2-ALD-S”, which mentions the power consumption of the Core series of the 12th generation of Intel, Alder Lake-S. Alder Lake-S has four options: 35W, 65W, 125W, and 165W. TDP level, compared to the 10th and 11th generation Core series, increased the 165W TDP model (although Intel suggested in the document that Comet Lake or Rocket Lake will launch a 165W model, in the end it did not appear).
FCPOWERUP especially compared the 12th generation with the previous two generations of desktop CPUs. Specifically, the specifications of the continuous feed requirements of the various TDP gear positions of the three product generations have not changed. They are 13A, 23A, 26A, 37.5A, but Peak Power has the highest performance. Consumption increased from 16.5A, 30A, 34A, 40A to 20.5A, 38.5A, 39A, 45A, and the increase after calculation was between 12.5% and 28%, 3%.
Regarding the real power of the Alder Lake-S processor (the current demand value x12), the maximum power consumption of 35W, 65W, 125W and 165W is 246W, 462W, 468W and 540W. Foreign media said that the eleventh-generation i9-11900K PL2 has a power consumption rating of 250W, and the next-generation i9-12900K is expected to have even higher power, and the PL2 power consumption rating will reach the 300-400W.
However, the increase in power consumption of Alder Lake-S is not unexpected. In addition to performance updates and core architecture changes, the highlight of the 12th Gen Core series is the first support for DDR5 memory. It appears that there is an intention to replace the new Alder Lake-S platform. Players should have to reserve more costs to upgrade.
