Intel 600 Chipset Leaked

Planning for an Intel PC with DDR5? Intel 600 series chipsets leaked!

Processor new, chipset also new, and as the tradition goes with Intel, with each new generation of their CPUs appears a new family of sockets. The next to be launched next to Alder Lake-S, its twelfth-generation Intel Core CPUs, is the Intel 600 chipset family or PCH, of which the names of the different chipsets have been leaked.

One of the physical differences between CPUs for a desktop PC and a laptop is not only power consumption or the use of a different socket, but also the chipset with which they are compatible. As a result, Intel and AMD have separate chipsets for laptops and desktops. According to Intel, the 600 series is the codename for the Intel Core 12000, which will be available in a few months, and will be the successors to the existing Rocket Lake-S.

The Alder Lake-S chipsets will be included in the Intel 600 range, which is the successor to the current Intel 500 and will bring with them important new features such as support for DDR5 memory, also for DDR4, and PCI Express 5.0. The latter being an important advantage for Intel over the future AMD AM5 socket, which will not have support for the fifth generation of PCI Express.

Intel 600 chipset list leaked for Alder Lake-S

We were able to obtain a configuration driver known as AlderLake-PCH-S via a driver published by computer assembler and maker Dell. This file contains references to all of Intel’s upcoming Alder Lake-S desktop chipsets which are the future versions of Alder Lake CPU architecture that will use the LGA1700 socket, but no references to the notebook versions’ chipsets.

And what data has been gathered? As you can see, the names of the various chipsets. Starting with the highly anticipated Z690, which is projected to have full support for all new technologies, and then proceeding in decreasing order of specifications: H670, B660, and H610, which would be in the lowest range.

However, they would not be the only chipsets available, as the E680E, Q670E, and H610E chipsets would be available in the embedded systems sector. Not to mention the Q and W ranges, which are typically the best and will be seen in the shape of the Q670, W680, and W685 sockets.

The X699, on the other hand, could imply the possibility of a hypothetical HEDT version of the Alder Lake-S that would compete against the AMD Threadripper and result in Intel’s return to this market. This contradicts information about the Intel Sapphire Rapids-X, a HEDT variant of the forthcoming Intel Xeon. Not to mention that Intel Core-P cores, originally known as Golden Cove, are shared by Sapphire Rapids and Alder Lake. Although we can not rule out the possibility that the X699 is a rebranding of another chipset with slightly different specifications, as was the case with the X299 in the past.
