Did Intel’s 12th Gen Alder Lake CPUs put the company back on top?

Intel recently launched its 12th Gen Alder Lake CPUs. The Intel Core i5-12600K, Core i7-12700K, and Core i9-12900K all earned rave reviews. They’re the talk of the tech world due to their performance and value. Many claim that these processors push Intel ahead of rival AMD or that they at least put them neck and neck. We’d like to know if you agree.

With the launch of Ryzen in 2017, AMD pulled ahead of Intel in many ways. From launch, Red Team’s processors delivered excellent performance for their price, causing many to convert to AMD hardware. Additionally, thanks to a partnership with TSMC, Ryzen processors could utilize the 7nm process. In contrast, Intel was stuck on the 14nm process for years. Intel’s 12th Gen chips are built on the 10nm process known as Intel 7, helping Intel close the gap with its rival.

Though the innards of the aforementioned subject are technologically complex, the point is that Intel’s move paid off on a critical level. Reviews from several sites gave Intel’s new CPUs high scores.

Apple’s new M1 chips and Intel’s 12th Gen processors are both in the news, but they don’t exactly compete directly. Intel has only shown off its new desktop CPUs at this point, while Apple’s new CPUs are laptop processors. There are elements that people can compare about the chips, but that wouldn’t exactly be apples to apples. It’d be more Apple to Intel. Not to mention, Apple’s ecosystem adds an additional dimension to any processor comparison that, in many cases, preemptively negates it.

When experts spoke with Windows Central News Editor Robert Carnevale, they echoed similar sentiments.

“It’s unclear if 12th Gen will affect the adoption Apple M1 given the Apple ecosystem and existing user preferences for Apple products — but 12th Gen/Evo/Win11 may keep existing Windows users in the Windows camp and limit Apple’s market share growth,” said Alan Priestley, VP of Gartner Research. “I do not see Apple market share declining due to 12th Gen.”

With AMD doing so well over the past few years and Apple’s M1 chips being so impressive, some were saying that Intel was doomed. We’d like to know if you think Intel is back on top, in tight competition, or still behind other tech giants when it comes to CPUs.
