Intel Alder Lake S-CPU with 16 cores, 24 threads to launch in November? (updated)

Published by


It still is a little remarkable to see so many leaks on Alder-Lake-S as 11th gen. It already was benched a while ago and not a launch date also seems to be imminent. 

A previous leak showed ddr4 memory, this round ddr5-UDIMMS have been now used, so the proc and chipsets seem to support both. You can see that the base clock speed is 2.2 GHz. and the max frequency seems incorrect at 27.2 GHz. Numbers then, the proc has achieved a single-core score of 6,536 points, that's roughly Core i9-9900K and i9-10900K territory. With all-core stressed Alder Lake CPU scores better than a 10900K.

This twelfth generation of Core processors is expected to arrive in later/late this year. November is the current suggestion. So performance definitely will go up as this is early-stage stuff and testing. Alder Lake S is currently offered as a hybrid processor with up to 8 large core cores as well as Hyper-Threading and up to 8 small Atom cores without Hyper Threading on the LGA1700 socket. This results in unusual thread numbers such as 20. It will be very interesting to see what therBIG.little configuration will entail with its energy-friendly, and performance cores, Golden Cove (BIG) cores, and Gracemont (little) cores. The processors will be DDR4 forwards compatible but also have a DDR5 compatible memory interface.

Alder Lake S should be quite interesting with new technologies like DDR5, then again software developers will have their work cut out for them, the big-little approach will only work properly if that Windows 10 scheduler and other software developers use this characteristic sensibly.
