Lakefield, Intel’s first-generation Core/Atom hybrid package architecture processor, has quietly entered the company’s lightweight products such as the Samsung Galaxy Book S and is on the market. In Intel’s latest patch to the Linux kernel, it was confirmed that Alder Lake, the 12th generation Of Core, also continues a Big.LITTLE-sized nuclear hybrid architecture like Core/Atom, is the first time that a desktop platform (Lakefield is only used for mobile low voltage platforms).
According to previous information, The Alder Lake nuclear is the Golden Cove (Golden Bay) big core, Gracemont small core, providing 8 plus 8, 6 plus 8, 2 plus 8, 6 plus 0 and other different combinations, that is, the maximum can touch 16 cores, manufacturing process has said that the CPU part is 10nm, GPU part continues to 14nm.
Unfortunately, combined with the information in the SiSoftware database, Alder Lake still comes with DDR4 memory.
Of course, applying size cores to the desktop may also require market testing, including key indicators such as compatibility, security, energy efficiency, and so on.
