Intel Core Alder Lake-S 8-core spotted on Geekbench with the RTX 2080

We are in the run-up to the launch of the 11th Gen Rocket Lake-S processors, but details about the 12th Gen Core 'Alder Lake-S' are starting to come out.

The 12th generation of Intel Core processors will arrive in the fourth quarter, according to the latest information, so it is normal that more and more details about them begin to emerge during the course of this year.

The processor featured on Geekbench with a sample of 8 cores and 16 threads uses the new generation Alder Lake architecture, which consists of a big.LITTLE design using small cores and large cores. This is a hybrid technology that is very similar to the design of ARM SoCs, which also combine large and small cores.

The 12th generation is going to be a before and after in the Intel Core processor segment due to the use of the new LGA 1700 socket and support for DDR5 memory.

Geekbench was recently updated to be able to officially support the Alder Lake and Rocket Lake processors, so the readings should be correct.

The average score in OpenCL would be 106101 points with the RTX 2080, a high score for an engineering sample, either ES1 or ES2 because in the 'retail' version the numbers could be higher. Qualifying QS samples shouldn't arrive until summer this year, so performance could only get better.

The Intel Core Alder Lake-S processors will have support for DDR5 memories and the PCIe 5.0 connection interface, in a great generational change to leave behind the DDR4 and PCIe 4.0 memories. In addition to the new LGA 1700 socket, the upcoming 12th generation CPUs will be manufactured with the improved 10nm SuperFin process node, which will be more advanced than that used with Tiger Lake laptop chips. We will keep you informed.
