Patch notes for a new update of HWInfo64 have confirmed that Intel’s next generation of CPUs, codenamed ‘Alder Lake’ will use gear modes on its memory controller, similar to Intel’s current Rocket Lake processors. The patch notes indicate that HWInfo64 can now report which gear mode an Alder Lake CPU is actively using.

Gear modes were introduced with the Rocket Lake architecture, and they allow users to change the way the memory controller behaves in order to achieve higher compatibility with more memory kits and higher RAM speeds.
