I'm sure many of you have been waiting for 12th gen Alderlake CPU's to be released for notebooks. I am happy to tell you guys, 12th gen is here! And were not just talking your low end 12th gen CPU's, were also talking about high end Core I9 12th gen CPU's.
How many of you out there can say that you have 14-core CPU's in your notebook computers? Exactly! Many talk about how 12th gen is going to make gaming performance better. Jarods Tech has shown CyberPunk and MS Flight Simulator, has shown the greatest in FPS improvement there.
However, what not a lot of people are talking about right now, is how much 12th gen CPU's, is going to increase your production performance. No games today utilize 14-cores, at most, some games utilize 8-cores. So 14-cores is going to give one a step up in production performance I'd think.
But here's the thing you gotta remember. Core I9 CPU's generate a ton of heat, and most notebook coolers are unable to remove all that heat. Fully desktop replacement classification notebooks, which are bulky as heck, and weigh like 10-pounds, don't even have coolers that can do the job, and they die in short order.
So I think it would be interesting to see how well these modern machines handle cooling. According to the information I have been able to gather so far, the new 12th gen CPU's are supposed to be more power efficient, providing higher performance, with less power used.
I would think that would mean that the 12th gen CPU's will generate less heat, so maybe a good sized notebook cooler, will finally be able to keep up, and keep the chips away from hanging at 90C to 100C all the time, causing early deaths?
Another factor we need to consider, 12th gen CPU's come with two different types of cores now, which as of late, require Windows 11 in order to utilize them. What I'd like to know is, will Linux be able to utilize those cores, or will Linux handycap the CPU's, until a modern enough kernel, allows full support?
Again folks, what are your thoughts on this?
And, will any of you be buying a 12th gen notebook? Currently the most powerful notebook in the world right now, is the new MSI 12th gen notebook recently shown on Jarods Tech, and LTT.
