The launch of Intel Alder Lake is imminent, according to Lenovo. The company's first Alder Lake-based gaming PC will be orderable from next month with DDR5 RAM and PCIe 5.0 support. The Legion 9000K will start shipping in early November.

Lenovo has unveiled the Legion 9000K 2022 on Chinese social media. While the company does not refer to the machine as featuring Intel processors, the mention of 12th Gen CPUs is a strong nod towards the Alder Lake architecture. Presumably, Lenovo has left out any Intel branding to avoid violating embargoes.

According to ITHome, Lenovo will start selling the Legion 9000K on October 29, likely the date when Alder Lake processors will become available. October 29 is a day after Intel's inaugural Innovation event ends, which commences on October 27. Hence, Intel will probably reveal all remaining details about its Alder Lake processors in just under a month's time.

The Legion 9000K will then launch on November 4, a probable shipping date for pre-orders. Lenovo's announcement also confirms that the Legion 9000K has DDR5 RAM, PCIe 5.0 support and an RTX 3080 Ti, one of NVIDIA's most powerful consumer GPUs behind the RTX 3090. Seemingly, the Legion 9000K has a Z690 motherboard, with other chipsets set to arrive at a later date.
