Intel 12th Gen Core

Intel® 12th Gen Core™ CPU Commercial Platform Now Available for ACRN™ v3.x!

By Blog, In The News

We are delighted to announce that the first Intel® 12th Gen Core™ CPU (formerly known as Alder Lake) systems from ASRock Industrial are now supported by ACRN and available to the open source community.

12th Gen Intel® Core™ desktop processors are the first Intel® Core™ processors to feature performance hybrid architecture for industrial embedded use. It combines two new core microarchitectures, Performance-cores (P-cores) and Efficient-cores (E-cores), on a single processor die. The integrated GPU (iGPU) features enhanced graphics performance for graphics virtualization through Single Root I/O Virtualization (SRIOV), fast Artificial Intelligence (AI) with hardware acceleration and Intel® Xe Architecture and last but not least Real-Time Capabilities such as Intel® Time Coordinated Computing (Intel® TCC) and Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) that help ensure smooth operation across multiple edge devices in industrial implementations.

In order to provide a seamless experience, the ACRN team has validated two systems for basic functionality based on ACRN v3.0 and above. For further information about these systems, please refer to the URLs below:
