With Intel Alder Lake releasing in just a few months, CPU-Z has been patched to support the upcoming ‘K’ series SKUs. The naming of these SKUs has not been officially revealed yet, but it looks like the developers are confident that they will be named i9-12900K, i7-12700K and i5-12600K.
As per the changelog for CPU-Z 1.97, the app can now detect and detail Intel Core i9-12900K, i7-12700K and i5-12600K processors and the Z6xx platform. Moreover, the latest version CPU-Z now supports DDR5 memory SPD and XMP 3.0, which should come in handy when reading information from the Z6xx platform.
