Intel’s Alder Lake-X CPUs with 56 Cores are Being Prepped for Launch in the Coming Months

The benchmarking and analysis application AIDA64 Extreme has recieved preliminary support for Intel’s upcoming Alder Lake-X workstation processors. Based on a chiplet architecture, these high-end desktop chips will feature up to 56 cores across four dies. Each die will consist of 20 cores, one disabled each to bolster yields.

This is Intel’s first proper response to AMD’s Threadripper that launched with the Zen family back in late 2017. These are also the chipmaker’s first tile-based consumer processors, a major departure from the 18-core monolithic Cascade Lake-X offerings which flopped harder than a fish out of water.

You can expect a launch sometime this summer with a possible unveil at Computex late next month.
