Who Will Receive The New Intel Heat Sinks? Here Are The Likely Processors

2 Mins read

After the rumors of the last hours, resulting in the publication of an informative slide that indicated how in preparation also three new stock heatsinks for Alder Lake, let’s try to identify, with all the caution of the case, which could be the processors to whom.

First of all, why did it become necessary to think of new dissipation solutions? Well, the new 12th generation processors will boast a new “hybrid” architecture, that is to say, made up of different structured Cores. In short, within the same chip there will be two micro-architectures, one with high efficiency and one with high performance. These different Cores will be able to understand when to enter into the game and take over from others depending on the tasks running on the computer.

To make all this possible, increase performance and energy efficiency, the new Intel processors have definitively abandoned the traditional square shape, finally adopting a rectangular design and longer on two sides. This has obviously made it necessary to switch sockets, so the new Alder Lake processors will not be compatible with old motherboards.

This innovation has also essentially changed the shape of the surface in contact with the heat sink and the old stock heat sinks may not therefore be sufficient to cover it entirely or simply incompatible with the space available on the motherboard.

The heatsinks listed in Intel’s alleged slide are three:

Intel Laminar RH1

Intel Laminar RM1

Intel Laminar RS1

The main differences between the three relate to the size, dissipation capacity and RGB lighting. But what processors could be bundled with such cooling solutions?

Well, based mostly on Intel’s policies for previous generations, all products excluded from the equation would be the so-called “K-processors,” i.e. with unlocked multipliers and related variants -KF, i.e. with unlocked multiplier

Up to the last generation, however, Intel has supplied a stock heatsink with all traditional configurations, so also on the i9-11900 and its variant i9-11900F, although in the last two iterations the devices produced by Intel have been remodel

Based on these considerations, it is possible to expect a stock heatsink with the new Alder Lake processors without a multiplier unlocked, therefore in all non-K 12th generation variants, assuming that the news of the arrival of the new heatsinks is officially confirmed by To find out the new features of the new processors, we suggest you take a look at the unveiled secrets of hybrid architecture with Intel 7 process.
