Mobile Performance Meets LGA-Socket Flexibility for IoT Edge Deployments


  • Enhance graphics and edge AI capabilities with the performance and power of mobile processors and the flexibility of an LGA-socket package.

  • This multichip package includes 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors with performance hybrid architecture, integrated Intel® Iris® Xe graphics, Intel® Thread Director, Intel® Deep Learning Boost, and the OpenVINO™ auto-device plugin.

  • Support object detection, image segmentation, and natural language processing for retail, healthcare, education, hospitality, and vision, safety, and security edge applications.



The Best of Intel® Core™ Mobile and Desktop Processors

12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors combine the performance profile and power ranges of our 12th Gen Intel® Core™ mobile processors with the LGA-socket flexibility of our 12th Gen Intel® Core™ desktop processors. This multichip package features our performance hybrid architecture1 and integrated Intel® Iris® Xe graphics with up to 96 graphics execution units (EUs) and four display pipes.

The processor lineup includes two processor base power options—the 45W PS HL series and the 15W UL series. The HL series offers a higher core count with a 35W to 65W assured power range for performance-driven tasks. The UL series has a 12W to 28W assured power range for compact form factors that can fit virtually anywhere, such as behind an interactive flat panel display. It’s also ideal in sealed, fanless designs for harsh environments like commercial kitchens, manufacturing lines, and processes that involve chemical exposure. Lower power profiles also reduce electrical consumption, which can help device manufacturers meet product sustainability goals.

Breakthrough Hybrid Architecture

12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors are the first Intel® Core™ processors to feature our performance hybrid architecture,1 which includes up to six multithreaded P-cores for primary workloads and up to eight single-threaded E-cores for additional multitasking and scalability. The new design includes Intel® Thread Director,2 which intelligently directs the OS to assign the right workload to the right core.

Fast AI with Intel® Iris® Xe Graphics and Built-In Inference Acceleration on the CPU

12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors support high-performing AI for inferencing and machine vision. Up to 96 graphics EUs allow for a high degree of parallelization in AI workloads, while built-in AI acceleration on the CPU from Intel® Deep Learning Boost (Intel® DL Boost) provides additional inference processing power.

This processor generation is fully supported by the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit, including the OpenVINO™ Auto-Device (AUTO) plugin. The AUTO plugin automatically detects processing resources and balances deep learning workloads across any mix of CPUs, integrated GPUs, and other accelerators for maximum inference performance.

The ability to accelerate deep learning AI at the edge delivers new levels of object detection and image segmentation for applications like healthcare imaging and defect detection, as well as natural language processing for speech recognition and automated attendants.

Four by 4K Displays Without a Discrete Graphics Card

Intel® Iris® Xe graphics, with up to 96 graphics EUs, powers up to four display pipes that can drive four concurrent 4K60 displays or a single 8K display. Pipelock video synchronization for Windows drives multipanel video walls.

Expanded Bandwidth and Fast DDR5 Memory

With up to 8x PCIe 4.0 lanes and 4x Thunderbolt™ 4 lanes, 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors offer a bigger data pipeline directly to the CPU plus up to 12 additional PCIe 3.0 lanes running through the integrated PCH. This series also supports up to DDR5-4800 memory for greater workload convergence and more-simultaneous applications.

Long-Term Software Support and Long-Life Availability That IoT Requires4

Windows 10 IoT Enterprise 2021 Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC) and long-term Linux kernel provide longer periods between updates for industries and applications that require maximum stability. Long processor production lives help manufactures get more value out of platform validation and deliver solutions for long-term deployments.

Product and Performance Information


Performance hybrid architecture combines two new core microarchitectures, Performance-cores (P-cores) and Efficient-cores (E-cores), on a single processor die. Select 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors (certain 12th Generation Intel® Core™ i5 Processors and lower) do not have performance hybrid architecture, only P-cores.


Built into the hardware, Intel® Thread Director is provided only in performance hybrid architecture configurations of 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors; OS enablement is required. Available features and functionality vary by OS.
