The thirteenth era chips may carry as much as 16 Gracemont cores, twice as many as Alder Lake.
In a video shared yesterday, Moore’s Regulation is Useless delivers extra info on Intel’s plans for its Alder Lake and Raptor Lake processors. It certifies the existence of processors workplace with 16 cores (8 Golden Cove cores and eight Gracemont cores), but additionally chips with out Gracemont cores. For the Alder Lake cell vary, MLID confirms the configuration of two processors: each armed with 8 Gracemont cores, one would carry 6 Golden Cove cores and the opposite 2.
These knowledge usually are not unpublished: two leaks, one of many vary workplace (Alder Lake-S) courting from August 2020 and one of many Alder Lake cell lineup courting again to final March already urged such configurations. Nonetheless, MLID places ahead a date for the lifting of the embargo on Alder Lake-S, though it isn’t clear what the embargo is about: October 25. Additionally, in line with him, the H55 sequence which is on the far proper of the slide above would correspond to an HX sequence. These chips would use a BGA socket and complement or change the present HK vary. This HX sequence wouldn’t land till later, throughout the second quarter of 2022. In truth, Intel would stagger the launch of its varied Alder Lake ranges from the top of 2021 to the second quarter of 2022.

Raptor Lake Fin 2022
MLID additionally indulged in some hypothesis about Raptor Lake, the thirteenth era to succeed Alder Lake. Nonetheless primarily based on 10 nm SuperFin lithography, these processors would additionally use an LGA1700 socket. Alternatively, they might ship as much as 24 cores: 8 Raptor Cove cores / 16 Gracemont cores. This era can be launched for the top of 12 months 2022 holidays, a interval that AMD would even have chosen to unsheathe its Ryzen processors below Zen 4 structure in 5 nm.
