The world of technology circulated two important, though unofficial, information about Intel’s actions and what the company will have to offer both in the market of cooling systems for processors and Arc graphics cards. What exactly are we talking about?
Intel graphics cards with Intel Arc Alchemist DG2 processors
According to the latest information from IT Home, Intel is going to launch its desktop graphics cards with DG2 GPU in March 2022. Although the company relies on only two variants of processors (from 512 or 384 EU), it is to create as many as 32 different models on their basis. The flagship will combine a GPU with 512 computing units with as much as 16 GB of GDDR6 memory, targeting the performance level of the GeForce RTX 3070. More information on this topic will probably be available on January 4 at the Intel conference at CES 2022.

How are Intel’s cooling systems, which will be bundled with Alder Lake-S processors, doing?
According to the pre-release tests, which are obviously illegal according to dissemination by testers, Intel tried with its new cooling systems. We are talking about both RH1 and RM1 and RS1, which will be delivered in a set with processors with a TDP of 65 watts depending on the family. Thus, the flagship RH1 will be paired with Intel Core i9, RM1 with i3, i5 and i7 processors, and resembling the old RS1 coolers with Pentium or Celeron processors.
According to NetEase, RM1 is already doing great with keeping the Core i5-12400 cool. During testing, this cooler kept the CPU temperature constant at 73 degrees Celsius at 20 degrees ambient temperature during a full AIDA64 stress test.

This load accounted for approximately 80 watts of power consumption. The biggest problem? Noise from fan spinning at 3100 RPM. Intel’s earlier coolers were much weaker and kept temperatures at 90-95 degrees Celsius with 80-watt processors.
