We know CPU-Z is an important tool to check our system details and its latest 1.96 update, the developers of the software have brought a lot of changes. The most notable among being the preliminary support for Intel Alder Lake processors and the Z6XX platform motherboards.
We know Intel’s Rocket Lake-S desktop CPUs aren’t much convincing enough and all their attention is on the upcoming Alder Lake or 12th Gen Core desktop processors. This is a hybrid architecture sporting big and small x86 cores that could eventually pose a problem for tools like CPU-Z.
While the high-efficiency or small cores, unlike the high-performance or big cores, will not support hyper-threading. So, it’s not easy for CPU-Z to determine the exact number of threads, and that is why with CPU-Z 1.96, the tool will read how many of each big and small cores the processor will have.
We are still yet to see how this hybrid architecture stacks up against AMD’s full fledged CPUs that consume low power and deliver significant better performance. Not only the software will support Alder Lake CPUs but also the upcoming Z6xx motherboards like the Z690.
This is the new chipset series for the upcoming LGA1700 socket-based motherboards. As we know that commercial DDR5 RAMs are not far away, so, the new CPU-Z will also support DDR5 memory configuration, expected to range from 4800 to 8400 MT/s.
Another important feature introduced with the new CPU-Z 1.96 is the support for new AMD Cezanne-G desktop processors called Ryzen 5000G APUs. The software shall also recognize AMD’s new Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards.
