Most games no longer have problems with Intel’s Alder Lake family, originally caused by a conflict with the Denuvo system. There are, however, three exceptions, including Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla.
On the official support site of the American company, you can find a list of productions that are “affected by the DRM issue on the 12th generation of Intel Core processors”. Speech – next to the Ubisoft game – also about Fernbus Simulator and Madden 22.
It seems that the problems only appear on the Windows 11 operating system now, and the solution currently offered may help to turn on the BIOS in compatibility mode and then … use the Scroll Lock key on the keyboard.
Denuvo assured in the past that even before the premiere of the Intel Core i5 12600k and i9 12900K, it prepared the appropriate patch. Still, its application in games was already the responsibility of individual developers, which – as you can see – most of them used.
Some publishers removed DRM, which quickly made the list of 90 problematic productions on the new CPs melt away.
The problem is the hybrid architecture of devices. “Due to the nature of modern DRM algorithms, they can use CPU discovery and should be aware of upcoming hybrid platforms,” explained Intel in October.
