Intel Alder Lake CPUs could fail to work with some DRM-toting games


Recommended Posts


Intel’s Alder Lake processors could have compatibility issues with older games that use DRM protection, according to a fresh report.


The story here is that Intel has just released a developer guide for the 12th-gen CPUs – which are expected very soon, inside a few weeks perhaps – and as Gamer’s Gospel spotted when digging into these details, the likes of Denuvo and other DRM anti-piracy solutions may need an update to work with Alder Lake chips

That can't be right.  DRM is for our benefit and never causes any problems what so ever.



or the "slow down the system" benefit right? lol


DRM is annoying, especially EA's "you can only install this game 3 times" BS with thier DRM
