Alder Lake S
12th Gen Intel® Core™ desktop processors for IoT applications with performance hybrid architecture1, combining Performance-cores and Efficient-cores into a single die with Intel® Thread Director2, enable IoT use cases with up to 1.36x times faster in single-thread performance 3 and up to 1.35x times faster in multi-thread performance 3 vs. 10th Gen Intel® Core™ Processors.
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.
Performance varies by use, configuration and other factors. Learn more at www.Intel.com/PerformanceIndex.
Intel targets to get Desktop platforms ready for PCIe 5.0 on CPU attach. However, this support is contingent on PCIe* Gen5 third party ecosystem readiness. For more complete information about performance and benchmark results, visit intel.com/PerformanceIndex.

Intel processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. Processor cores listed first are the total number of cores in the processor followed by the number of Performance-cores and number of Efficient-cores in parentheses (P+E).

Intel processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. Efficient-core frequencies are lower to optimize power usage. The frequency of cores and core types varies by workload, power consumption, and other factors.
