Intel Core Alder Lake-S outperforms Ryzen 9 5950X in Cinebench R20

On the day yesterday, a slide Intel filtered revealing the features and advantages of processors Alder Lake-S over Rocket Lake-S.

What we know about Alder Lake-S processors is that performance will be 20% better than Rocket Lake-S on a single core, as well as adding a number of new features, such as support for DDR5 memory and PCI. Express 5.0.

Alder Lake-S is going to use big.LITTLE hybrid technology combining large and small cores. The large cores will be called Golden Cove and the small cores will be called Gracemont. Intel is going to use the "Enhanced 10nm SuperFin" compute node.

Some early engineering samples of the Alder Lake-S processors seem to be out there already, which gives us some benchmarks and performance tests with current processors.

According to the leak from Twitter, an Alder Lake-S processor, which we assume is the top of the range of the series, reaches 11,000 points in Cinebench R20. This result would be above the 10,238 points achieved by the Ryzen 9 5950X with 16 cores and 32 threads. This result is significant, knowing that the top-of-the-range Alder Lake will increase the number of cores of the Core series by 16 and 24 threads (8 large cores with HyperThreading and another 8 small cores without HyperThreading).

The Alder Lake-S processors will use the LGA 1700 socket and its possible arrival on the market could be later this year or early 2021, succeeding the Rocket Lake-S processors.

As this is an engineering sample, the results may be even better in the retail version. We will keep you informed.
