With the new Intel performance hybrid technology, the module offers excellent performance values in multi-thread / multi-tasking applications. The processor variants of the Alder Lake-P H45 series have up to 6 performance-cores, 8 efficient-cores and a powerful graphics unit with up to 96 execution units. The H45 series offers the highest performance, a particularly large cache and additional PCIe Gen4 lanes within the Alder Lake-P family.
The optimal distribution of the various tasks/threads to the different cores is carried out automatically by the Intel Thread Director. Fast DDR5 memory technology and numerous high-speed interfaces such as PCIe Gen4, USB 3.2 and 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet ensure optimum system performance.
