Intel Alder Lake-S Spotted Lurking in DOTA2 Benchmark

A mysterious chip running DOTA 2 at 120 frames per second seems to be the first glimpse of Alder Lake-S, AKA Intel’s 12th-generation desktop CPUs. As spotted in the CapFrameX database by German tech site ComputerBase, the CPU identifies itself as Alder Lake, but is running at just 2.2GHz. As this is unverified information it is best taken with a pinch of salt.

The DOTA 2 benchmark took place on April 5, and has taken this long to work its way out of the system. And while the game, a MOBA from 2013 favoured by esports types, may not be the most stressful test of the rig – which was also equipped with an RTX 3080 and 32GB of DDR5-4800 RAM – the presence of an engineering sample in a real-world situation is a good indication that Intel is on course to release its 12th-gen chips later this year.
