Intel claims that it has resolved all of Alder Lake's DRM issues
Intel's Alder Lake processors were prophesized to cause problems well before arrival. Some programs would undoubtedly have trouble differentiating between the CPU's Gracemont and Golden Cove cores. Popular DRM solution Denuvo was one such application, much to the dismay of gamers, who were suddenly unable to play games that used it. Thankfully, that should no longer be a problem.
Intel has stated on its official website that it has resolved all DRM-related issues with Alder Lake processors on Windows 10 and Windows 11. The company claims to have worked with Microsoft and game developers to deliver the fixes via a slew of updates. It rounds things off by stating that users who are still afflicted by the said issues should contact Intel.
However, some legacy titles abandoned by the developers could still be affected. Gamers may have to use alternate workarounds, such as disabling the efficiency cores in the BIOS. That shouldn't be a problem for some of the lower-end Alder Lake parts like the Core i5-12400, which rely exclusively on the Golden Cove cores to do all the heavy lifting.
