Now as we’ve already said, Alder Lake will feature performance and efficient CPU cores. From the looks of it, the high-end CPU model will be the Intel Core i9-12900K. This CPU will feature 16 CPU cores, will support 24 threads and will have 30MB of L3 cache. Its efficient cores will boost up to 3.9 GHz (3.7 GHz all-core), while its performance cores will boost up to 5.3 GHz (5.0 GHz all-core).

Intel did not reveal any additional details, though we expect these new CPUs to come out later this year.
