Wccftech has shared a leaked roadmap that confirms some of the key specifications behind Intel’s upcoming 12th Gen Core mobile CPUs, code named Alder Lake-P and Alder Lake-M. The former, higher-TDP (12 to 45 watts) platform will feature SKUs of up to 16 cores and support for DDR5 memory and PCIe 5.0, while the latter will feature SKUs of up to 10 cores and support for LPDDR5 memory. Alder Lake-M will be limited to PCIe 4.0, however.

Intel Alder Lake-P

  • 2 Big Cores + 8 Small Cores with a GT2/GT3 GPU
  • 6 Big Cores + 8 Small Cores with a GT2/GT3 GPU
  • Up to 96 Execution Units
  • LPDDR5 and DDR5 memory support
  • PCIe Gen 5.0
  • Thunderbolt 4
  • WiFi 6E

Intel Alder Lake-M

  • 2 Big Cores + 8 Small Cores with a GT2/GT3 GPU
  • Up to 96 Execution Units
  • LPDDR4X and LPDDR5 memory support
  • PCIe Gen 4.0
  • Thunderbolt 4
  • WiFi 6E

Here’s how the power limits of Alder Lake-P and Alder Lake-M compare to the previous Tiger Lake generation, based on previous leaks:
