On the phone’s SoC processor, the configuration of the large, small and medium-sized cores has become unusual, and Intel is introducing this concept into the desktop and notebook space, a big four-core Lakefield is just a try, and the Alder Lake 12 generation Of Core is expected to flourish the following year. Of course, Intel won’t call it big.LITTLE, but rather “hybrid technology” that combines new flat, stereo-encapsulation technologies.
As we have learned before, the Alder Lake-S series will have two combinations, one is 8 plus 8 plus 1, that is, 8 large cores, 8 small cores, GT1 core, thermal design power consumption 125W (is being studied whether to do 150W) or 80W, and the other is 6 plus 0, that is, 6 large cores, no small core, GT1 core display, thermal design power 80W, are the new LGA 17000 interface.
Now, new exposures are coming, in addition to confirming the combination of the Alder Lake-S series of 8 plus 8 plus 1, 6 plus 0 plus 1, there are two categories:
Lake Alder-P: 2 plus 8 plus 2, 6 plus 8 plus 2
Lake Alder-M: 2 plus 8 plus 2
It’s not clear whether the two series are desktop, mobile, or anything else, but it’s clear that unification is all about eight small cores, GT2 cores, but large cores are different in size.
Of course, this may not be the whole combination of Alder Lake, and other specifications are not excluded.
Now even the Rocket Lake 11 generation desktop Core specs there are many unsolved mysteries, let alone the next generation, the guess will use the CPU core architecture will be Golden Cove, the small core is Gracemont, the nuclear display is expected to continue to the 12th generation, and possibly for the first time to support DDR5.
Interestingly, the rumor also suggests that Alder Lake will not only have two CPU cores in size, but will also have two processes, with the CPU part 10nm and the GPU portion 14nm.
In the past, there was a big god predicted that 11 generations of Core is two processes, but 10nm for non-core parts, 14nm for CPU, this is a mess.
