CPU-Z Enables Preliminary Support for Intel Alder Lake CPUs

CPU-Z, the CPU monitoring tool used to gather information about the processor your system is running on, has been updated with version 1.96. This new update doesn't change the software much but rather brings support for new hardware. Starting from this revision, Intel's upcoming Alder Lake CPUs have received preliminary support in the tool. To go along with CPUs, the software is now also enabled to recognize Intel's Z6xx motherboards that pair with Alder Lake processors. Alongside that, the software now also brings support for next-generation DDR5 memory, which is supposed to feature speeds anywhere from 4800 to 8400 MT/s. When it comes to AMD, the tool received an update that enables it to read information about AMD's Ryzen 5700G, 5600G, and 5300G APUs, and Radeon RX 6900 XT, 6800 (& XT), 6700 XT GPUs.

I wonder how it tackles the cores / threads part.

it should really just add an extra box to separate little and big cores

Yet they still don't fix the blurriness on higher scaling (>100%).

I don't expect Alder lake to be released this year.

Paper launch, maybe, but I'd be absolutely astonished if it actually launches this year. Even if it does, quantities will l be so low it won't be available for anyone but scalpers to buy it anyway.
