Intel Alder Lake-S “Socket V” Chipset To Feature Lower Z-Stack, Rectangular Design

Intel’s 12th generation Alder Lake-S desktop CPUs are expected to make their debut sometime before the end of the year and while rumours may suggest that the top-of-the-line model will support as many cores as AMD’s current flagship Ryzen 9 5950X, little else is known about the lineup. That is, up until now.

According to a report by the German tech site, Igor’s Lab, Alder Lake-S’ chipset isn’t just shipping out with a larger LGA1700 chipset – codenamed Socket V – but it will also be the first socket to house a completely new processor design in a long time. Specifically, blueprints obtained by the German publication point at Socket V supporting a processor with a rectangular design. Further, the Z-Stack, which is the total height of the CPU package, will be lower by approximately 1mm.

Not only that, but Igor also seems to have stumbled upon a set of blueprints that point to a new cooler that seemingly makes use of the high-performance thermoelectric cooling technology. This isn’t the first time such a cooler has made headlines; with its LGA1200 chipset, Intel partnered up with Cooler Master to create and launch the MasterLiquid ML360 Sub-Zero cooler.

Igor also managed to get his hands on schematics that seem to detail a low-profile reference cooler that look like they could be bundled with the lineup’s mid-range and entry-level processors at launch. Naturally, given the increased die size and pin density, it is very unlikely that this cooler will be backwards compatible with LGA1200 chipsets.
