In October 2021, Intel announced their new 12th Gen Alder Lake CPUs which have just arrived in the Nepali market. The “K” and “KF” suffix in these CPUs means that they can be overclocked. The KF-tagged ones, on the other hand, lack integrated GPU. Intel has announced Core i9, i7, and i5 versions of 12th generation CPUs. Furthermore, Let’s look at the specs and the price of the Intel 12th Gen CPU in Nepal.
Intel’s 12th Gen Alder Lake Overview
Intel’s 12th-Gen Alder Lake chips bring the company’s hybrid architecture, which combines a mix of larger high-performance cores paired with smaller high-efficiency cores, to desktop x86 PCs for the first time. Intel has already released the higher-end models for the desktop PC, but the company is largely expected to augment those chips with the more mainstream models very early next year in the CES 2022 timeframe. It also appears that Intel will also add the new design to its lowest-end chips, too.
Intel’s 12th Gen Alder Lake vs Other CPUs
Alder Lake represents a massive strategic shift as Intel looks to regain the uncontested performance lead against AMD’s Ryzen 5000 series processors. AMD’s Zen 3 architecture has taken the lead in our Best CPUs for gaming and CPU Benchmarks hierarchy, partly on the strength of Ryzen’s higher core counts. That’s not to mention the pressure from Apple’s M1 processors that feature a similar hybrid design to Alder Lake and come with explosive single-threaded performance improvements of their own.
