Leaked Intel Alder Lake mobile processor details reveal three new processor segments, including a 55 W option and Core i9 processors for thin and light laptops

According to a leaked internal document, Intel will have six processor segments in its Alder Lake Mobile product stack. The company's H-series 45 W processors have been usurped by 55 W versions, while a U28 segment should bring Core i9 processors to thin and light laptops. The same leak reveals core configurations for all Alder Lake Mobile segments, too.

Details about Intel's Alder Lake platform have already leaked, most-recently courtesy of a Geekbench listing for an eight-core SKU. Most leaks about Alder Lake have concerned Intel's desktop product stack, but @9550pro has now revealed the company's Alder Lake Mobile stack.

Incidentally, the leak precedes the release of many 11th Gen Core series processors, including the Core i5-11400H, Core i7-11800H and the Core i9-11980HK. Undoubtedly, Alder Lake Mobile processors will utilise Intel's Hybrid technology, which has also been in desktop counterparts. Intel has already delivered hybrid processors with the Lakefield architecture, but Alder Lake will bring this technology beyond low-power chipsets.

According to the leaked image, Intel has separated its Alder Lake Mobile stack into three packages: Alder Lake-M, Alder Lake-P and Alder Lake-S-BGA. The latter should not be confused with Intel's desktop Alder Lake processors, though. The same picture shows that Intel has added three new processor segments to its mobile portfolio too, from the Alder Lake-M M5 (5 W/7 W) to the Alder Lake-P U28 (20 W/28 W) and the Alder Lake-S-BGA H55 (45 W/55 W).

Additionally, the leak details the core combinations for each segment, culminating in a 55 W Core i9 SKU with eight large cores, eight small cores and a GPU with 32 Execution Units (EU). The U28 and H45 series will have 96 EU GPUs though, by contrast. Separately, it looks like Intel plans to bring Core i9 SKUs to thin and light laptops with the U28 segment. It is unclear when Intel's Alder Lake Mobile stack will arrive, but we doubt that it will be all at once, going off the staggered Tiger Lake release.
