Intel doesn't connect air conditioners to most of its CPUs and haven't in years. Unlike AMD, which is sometimes criticized for not using air conditioners on some models, Intel is thanked for providing the metal. This is because some of the air conditioners they send out are working hard.
The Intel Rocket Lake cooler, pictured above, has been in various iterations for about a decade. Intel sometimes changes the colors and appears a little taller to perform better, or looks a little bigger, but it was never enough. But now, perhaps to hit the mark, Intel is said to be testing new designs that can be paired with Alder Lake (12th generation) processors this year. Three prototypes of it are shown in a leaked slide below. For Alder Lake ">
This series is called Laminar. It is located on the left side of the RH1, designed to cool i9 processors. The focus is on RGB and premium accents.
In the middle and right are the RM1 and RS1, which is glued to the first part with an RGB ring, although RS1 can also have an aluminum core.RM1 for i7, i5, and i3 components, while RS1 is for Pentium and Celeron models.
The slides show that All three have a cooling capacity of 65W, which seems a bit inconsistent for great products but matches their capabilities.

Compared to Competitors The RH1 looks like the AMD Wraith Spire, while the RM1 and RS1 are comparable to the Wraith Stealth, but, like the Wraith coolers, the laminate coolers are more likely to compete with the $20-30 aftermarket coolers. From Maf Limited Iodine, stock coolers should generally be paired with budget, mid-range and Intel CPUs.You'll appreciate us if the right Laminar coolers come with Alder Lake.
