We know a little bit about Intel's CPU roadmap, and not just from the rash of leaks and rumors. Intel has let it be known that it is planning to launch its 11th Gen Core "Rocket Lake-S" desktop processors in the first quarter of next year. It will be the last major CPU launch on Intel's 14-nanometer node. Sometime after that, Intel will introduce a hybrid CPU architecture codenamed Alder Lake, built on a 10nm node. As it pertains to the latter, an apparent engineering sample has found its way to Geekbench. While not exactly the same concept, the go-to comparison for Alder Lake is Arm's big.LITTLE design. They are very different architectures. But without taking a deep dive into the comparison,... Read more...
Over the next few months, all eyes will be on Intel's upcoming 11th generation Comet Lake-S desktop processors, which will supplant the current 10th generation Comet Lake-S family. While still being based on the 14nm process node, Rocket Lake-S will bring support for PCIe 4.0, Thunderbolt 4, along with higher clocks (and IPC) and more performance to the table. But looking past Comet Lake-S, there's the 12th generation Alder Lake-S architecture. We've talked about it quite a bit in recent months here at HotHardware, and now we're getting our first [alleged] look at an Alder Lake-S CPU. The image comes to us from Videocardz, which shows the processor... Read more...
Intel is planning to bring a hybrid CPU architecture to desktops with Alder Lake-S at some point in the relatively near future, which has drawn rough comparisons to ARM's big.LITTLE approach that has worked so well in mobile designs. They are not actually the same thing, but that is a discussion for another time. As it applies to Alder Lake-S, a fresh leak has provided some interesting hardware details. What we know for sure about Alder Lake is that it will arrive in 2021, according to Intel's latest official roadmap. Intel has also revealed that Alder Lake will combine Golden Cove cores for heavy lifting with Gracemont cores for lighter duty workloads, packaged together in "one highly efficient... Read more...
Close your eyes and imagine a world where motherboard sockets never changed, and you could re-use the same motherboard forever. Not stop imagining silly things. The best we can hope for is to have some kind of upgrade path beyond the current generation, but there inevitably comes a point when chip makers introduce a new socket. Intel just did it with Comet Lake-S, and is likely to do so again in a couple of generations when its Alder Lake-S processors arrive. In case you missed it, Comet Lake-S is the newest silicon on the block (from Intel, anyway). Intel also launched a new Z490 chipset and LGA 1200 socket, meaning any upgrade to Comet Lake-S will also entail a platform overhaul—you won't... Read more...
