New hybrid architecture for optimal performance
With the Alder Lake processors, Intel has launched a small revolution in the world of x86 architecture by adopting a hybrid technology based on two different types of cores assembled within the same chip: Performance-Cores and Efficient-Cores. With more cores and more power, 12th generation Intel processors are ready for next-generation gaming, PCI-Express 5.0 graphics cards and DDR5 RAM.

CORES AT WORK
Intel’s new high-performance hybrid architecture integrates two core families into one processor for a smoother gaming experience. Intel Thread Director prioritizes and manages workloads by determining which core is best suited for each task. Performance cores are designed for unique, low-thread count workloads, enhancing activities such as video gaming or productivity tasks. Efficiency cores are optimized for multi-threading by reducing interruptions from secondary tasks.
