    Intel held their yearly Architecture day 2021 sharing loads of information on upcoming products like Alder Lake processors coming later this year, and Xe-based Alchemy GPU products coming in 2022.

    Intel 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake" Processors

    Alder Lake-S will include 8 Golden Cove cores and 8 Gracemont cores, according to Intel, who verified this during the company's architecture day. It will be manufactured utilizing Intel's Intel 7 technology, which was previously known as the Intel 10 nm Enhanced SuperFin process. As previously stated, Alder Lake-S will have 8 Golden Cove cores, which are high-performance cores, and 8 Gracemont cores, which are high-efficiency cores. Due to the fact that Gracemont cores do not support Hyper-Threading (HT), Alder Lake-S will only be able to provide 16 cores and 24 threads, which is the same as the presumed i9-12900K configuration.

    Intel revealed the brand for its upcoming consumer high-performance graphics products: Intel Arc. The Arc brand will cover hardware, software, and services, and will span multiple hardware generations, with the first generation, based on the Xe HPG microarchitecture, code-named Alchemist (formerly known as DG2).

    Intel Arc is the graphics card series naming much like "GeForce and Radeon", and an attempt to compete with the AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce brands in the gaming graphics industry.
