Alder Lake-P and Alder Lake-M will be the mobile offerings in the 12th generation, and Intel is expected to begin production between Q4 2021 and Q1 2022. Alder Lake-P will replace Tiger Lake-H35, H45, and UP3 families featuring up to 14 cores, 96-EU Xe GT3 graphics, PCIe Gen5, Wi-Fi 6E, and DDR5 support.

Last year, we had exclusively reported on some salient that are expected to make the cut with Alder Lake Mobile including support for DDR5 RAM and PCIe Gen5. Now, we are getting to know what would the core counts of these mobile SKUs would be.

According to a leaked roadmap, Alder Lake mobile will arrive in two flavors — Alder Lake-P and Alder Lake-M. Alder Lake-P will have a TDP range between 15 W and 45 W PL1 while Alder Lake-M will have a 9 W PL1.

More information about known Alder Lake mobile TDP segments so far can be found in this report

Alder Lake-P will supplant Tiger Lake-H35, Tiger Lake-H45, and UP3 lineups and will feature a top configuration of six Golden Cove (GLC) and eight Gracemont (GRT) cores. The ones directly replacing Tiger Lake UP3 will feature two GLC and eight GRT cores while the corresponding H45 equivalents would be sporting up to six GLC and eight GRT cores.

Alder Lake-P natively supports Thunderbolt 4, PCIe Gen5, and Wi-Fi 6E along with DDR5 and LPDDR5 RAM; The lower TDP Alder Lake-P SKUs with LPDDR5 support are likely to see the light of the day first followed by the higher TDP SKUs targeted at content creation and gaming.

Similarly, Alder Lake-M will replace Tiger Lake-UP4. Though limited to PCIe Gen4, Alder Lake-M, which tops out with two GLC and eight GRT cores, will support Thunderbolt 4 and Wi-Fi 6E. Memory support includes both LPDDR4X and LPDDR5. 

Both Alder Lake-P and Alder Lake-M are expected to sport Xe GT2 or GT3 iGPUs with up to 96 execution units (EUs) depending on the SKUs. Entry-level parts are also touted to carry GT1 iGPUs as well.

With regards to timelines, we are probably looking at a window between November 2021 and March 2022 for Alder Lake-P and between January 2022 and April 2022 for Alder Lake-M. This means Intel is not far from talking about Alder Lake mobile in upcoming presentations.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
