Leo Lifts the Lid on Intel Alder Lake, Z690 and more!

We got our first real look at Alder Lake back in August at Intel's Architecture Day, but now all the products and specific SKUs have been announced and are official. We were invited to an event in London and walked away with a Core i9-12900K, i7-12700K and a i5-12600K, with benchmarking already underway ahead of the review next week. It's time to dive a bit deeper into the CPUs and Z690 chipset though, so buckle in and be sure to watch the video below.
