Leaker details everything there is to know about Alder Lake's Z690 platform

Expect DDR4/DDR5 support, PCIe 5.0 and 5G Ethernet.



Read more about Intel's Z690 motherboard platform and Alder Lake.

For starters, it has been reconfirmed that Alder Lake will support both DDR5 and DDR4 memory types

Won't DDR4 support be limited to the lower end motherboards?


If so, Probably not much use for anyone who wants a Alder Lake K series chip and will still have to fork out for new DDR5 memory.

It gives OEMs versatility and motherboard manufacturers options. TBH, motherboards will support one or the other, and I don't see many motherboard makers supporting DDR4 in the DIY market unless there are benefits for doing that.

At this point in time its all about the money for me. Who cares about specifications being beaten to death here. I did extremely well with AMD stock in 2020 and now its time for Intel in doing me a "short-sell" favor or lift as well. Once the real cash rolls in it will take care of the specifications and then some. See you for a show and tell during Intel's 4th quarter earnings call in early 2022.
