According to a leaked PowerPoint slide outed by tipster @ayxerious, Intel might be planning to release a new lineup of bundled CPU fans alongside its Alder Lake CPUs. This would be a welcome change, considering the poor performance of current bundled Intel coolers. However, the slide seems to showcase a very compact fan design that isn’t far off from Intel’s existing stock coolers, for two out of the three coolers presented.

@ayxerious themselves called this out in a Tweet, stating that if the slide is real, “Intel hasn’t gotten the hint,” i.e. that the Laminar coolers, particularly the RM1 and RS1 might not offer a market performance improvement over currently shipping Rocket Lake stock coolers. An updated cooler design would be a boon for potential Intel buyers since it’d offer value that AMD’s already offering with its bundled Wraith coolers. 

It’s interesting to note that the Laminar RH1 seems to have a beefed-up design relative to the other two. However, it appears to be limited to Alder Lake i9 parts, and the slide says nothing about intercompatibility. Are the Laminar fans set to launch alongside Alder Lake? And will they deliver a better experience than current Intel CPU coolers? We should know more in the weeks to come, with Alder Lake’s impending Q4 launch.
