Low-power Alder Lake-N processors coming to Chromebooks, embedded systems

Intel Alder Lake-N

Intel Alder Lake-N processors succeeding Jasper Lake processors are likely to soon show up in Chromebooks and embedded systems with early clues about the features of the upcoming processors found in the source tree of Coreboot and the Sound Open Firmware (SOF) Project. The person or team at Coelacanth’s dream has been analyzing the commits related to Alder Lake-N and found some interesting information related to the CPU cores, GPU, media capabilities, and peripherals, plus some reference boards by the Google Chromium team. Their latest update analyzes a partial boot log in the SOF Project and so far we know that: Alder Lake-N is an Atom-only “Gracemont” processor (no hybrid variant like Alder Lake-S desktop processors) with up to 8 threads/8 cores Alder Lake-N has two 4-core clusters that share the L2 cache The new processors should come with Intel UHD Gen12 graphics just like Alder Lake-P/M mobile processors, but […]
