16 Cores And Maybe Even PCIe 4.0?

Intel’s rumored Alder Lake processors as the company’s first 10nm desktop CPUs, and utilizing a new LGA 1700 socket.

Over the weekend VideoCardz published an interesting report adding some mobile-infused flavor to the mix, with a possible big.LITTLE configuration for Alder Lake S processors of up to 16 cores.

The leaked slide, if legitimate, paints an interesting picture of a possible change to Intel’s strategy that also might include PCI Express 4.0 (technology that was reportedly planned for Comet Lake) – though TDPs up to 125W and 150W don’t promise competition for AMD’s more efficient 7nm designs.

In addition to the 8+8 or 6+0 core configurations on the slide, which VideoCardz mentions “could feature eight Golden Cove and eight Gracemont cores”, there is an additional “+1” representing GT1, which refers to Intel Graphics Technology (GT), with the “1” signifying the base configuration with fewer Execution Units than a GT2 or GT3 solution.
