According to Wccftech, latest leaked roadmap suggest Intel partners are set to being the production of Alder Lake-P laptops by the beginning of November. Intel Alder Lake-P and Alder Lake-M mobile CPUs are expected to be released in the Q1 of 2022.
The roadmap confirms that Alder Lake-P is to feature up to 14cores, Xe graphics with up to 96 Execution Units with support for Thunderbolt 4, and Wifi 6E. More interestingly though, the series is listed with DDR5 or LPDDR5 memory and PCIe Gen5 interface, while not mentioning DDR5 technology at all.
The Alder Lake-M series will offer up to 10 cores with the same maximum number of graphics Execution Units. Unlike the P-series, the M will not support the main DDR5 standard, but either the low-power LPDDR4X or LPDDR5. The series will also rely on PCI Gen4 standard for storage and possibly discrete graphics.
