As has been speculated, Intel will be announcing the specifications, pricing, and initial performance figures of its upcoming Alder Lake platform during its Innovate event on October 27. Initially, the company will focus on top-end SKUs and the Z690 platform. Availability of these processors along with Z690 motherboards is slated for November 4.

The official Intel Alder Lake announcement was long being speculated to happen this month. Now, we have a near-official confirmation of the dates for the product announcement as well as for the review embargo. 

This information comes by way of a document accessed by Wccftech. According to the source, Intel will be showing off the top-end Alder Lake desktop variants during the company's Innovation event on October 27 and October 28. 

During the Innovation event, Intel is expected to delve into the specifications, pricing, and performance features of the the Core i9-12900K, 12900KF, Core i7-12700K, 12700KF, Core i5-12600K, and the Core i5-12600KF. The company will also be detailing the salient features of the Z690 platform. The remaining mainstream lineup and other Alder Lake chipsets such as the H670, B660, and H610 are likely be announced during CES 2022. 

These CPUs along with Z690 motherboards will be available for purchase from November 4 6 AM PT, which is also when the review embargoes lift. 

The Intel Alder Lake platform brings heterogeneous computing to the desktop with a combination of high performance Golden Cove or P-cores and energy-efficient Gracemont cores or E-cores. Alder Lake will also bring support for DDR5 RAM and PCIe Gen 5 I/O, but this will be offered only with the Z690 chipset-based motherboards. 

We will be covering the launch event in detail, so stay tuned.

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.
