Alder Lake is Intel's secret weapon for late 2021 - Huge IPC improvement leaked

Is Intel finally back on track?



Read more about Intel's Alder Lake architecture.

So in other words don't touch Rocket Lake with a 80ft pole.

Totally. I see no reason to buy Intel's next CPUs.

Alder Lake could be absolutely incredible.

Intel's Golden Cove cores will offer their users Hyperthreading support, while Gracemont offers singular threads. With this in mind, Intel's Alder Lake processors are due to offer their users sixteen cores and twenty-four threads. Rocket Lake will only offer users up to eight total cores and sixteen threads, making Alder Lake a huge upgrade for Intel fans.
Am I the only one reading that wrong? ...

It's correct. There are 16 cores, 8 of which do not have hyperthreading. It's this 'dual Core' thing Intel is moving ahead with. It's still one monolithic die, but technically there are two 'architectures' or 'Cores' inside the chip, one for performance and one for efficiency.

They already released Lakefield, which has 1 strong core and 4 weak cores. Similar approach to phones, which have a mix of strong and weak cores. Latter can be used for background tasks for decent power savings.

So 8 for big computational tasks and 8 "smaller" cores for background things or low power tasks.

lets hope microsoft are up to the task of getting the windows scheduler to allocate work correctly or these will be a disaster.

That's right. And only 8 of those cores have hyperthreading. Which means, 8 cores x 2 = 16 threads + 8 cores with no hyperthreading = 24 total threads. 16 of those 'cores' are real cores and 8 of those 'cores' are SMT.
