Intel introduces 12th Gen Core “Alder Lake-PS” CPU series for Internet of Things





Intel 12th Gen Core HL-Series for retail, banking, hospitality and education

Intel launches Alder Lake-PS, new low-power series based on mobile 14-core chip with soldered BGA package. 

The new series are to feature up to 14 cores and 20 threads, the same specs as mobile Alder Lake-P silicon. Intel’s new series are based on Intel’s 7 process technology and are designed for Internet of Things with ‘exceptional’ graphics density for video at the edge.

Intel Alder Lake-P series are designed for cost-effective deployment for video kiosks, they support for Windows IoT enterprise and display virtualization. Definitely, these are not gaming CPUs.

Going by the specs, these CPUs will operate in the 12W to 60W power range and will offer up to 96 Xe Execution Units. Furthermore, Alder Lake-P series will use DDR5 or their low-power variant. Intel confirms these CPUs will be using soldered down BGA packages with low z-height.

Alder Lake-PS Specifications

  • Intel® Iris® Xe graphics
  • Up to four concurrent 4K60 HDR displays or one 8K display​
  • Up to 8K HDR support and enhanced media support (12-bit)
  • Pipelock video synchronization for Windows
  • Graphics and display virtualization
  • Up to 96 graphics execution units to support AI workload parallelization
  • Intel® Deep Learning Boost (Intel® DL Boost) and the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit
  • Up to eight PCIe 4.0 lanes (2×4) plus four Thunderbolt™ 4 lanes for fast data transfers and more connectivity
  • Up to DDR5-4800 and up to DDR4-3200 memory
  • Long-life availability and long-term software support
  • Support for the Intel® oneAPI IoT Toolkit and the Intel® oneAPI Base Toolkit

In total Intel launched 11 new processors today. There are five new HL-series CPUs featuring 8 to 14 cores and supporting either DDR5-4800 or DDR4-3200 memory. Those series will operate with default TDP of 45W, but can go as high as 60W. Furthermore, Intel is launching new 12th Gen UL-series with nominal TDP of 15W. The core count is reduced here to 10 cores and 12 threads for the top SKU. This also means that only two Performance cores are enabled on these processors.

The chart below features all Intel embedded CPUs, including new HL/UL series and previously announced HE, PE and UE models for embedded systems.
