Intel 12th Gen Alder Lake-S CPUs Might Come Out On Top of AMD Zen 4 With 20% IPC Gain, To Release in December

We are still waiting on the 11th gen Intel CPUs’ launch in March, but it looks like the company is already planning to outpace itself with the Alder Lake-S 12th gen processors, launching in December. HKEPC is reporting that the new chips, built on the 10nm ESF process, will feature a combined IPC gain of around 20%.

We’ve previously gone in-depth on how the Alder Lake lineup will combine the best of ARM and x86, which is similar to the big.LITTLE hybrid architecture. Going by that, HKEPC is reporting that Alder Lake’s large Golden cove cores will offer 20% IPC gain over Willow cove. At the same time, the small cores (Gracemont) will Skylake-like performance. Combined, you can expect a general 16-18% IPC gain overall.

The report also claims that this might give Intel a performance headstart over AMD’s Zen 4 CPUs, which won’t appear until 2022.

While all this may sound great for team blue, we still have to see how Rocket Lake-S turns out, which should be soon enough.

  1. Typical Intel pipe dreams. I don’t buy it anymore. Rocket Lake was expected in late 2020. Now it turns out it won’t be on shelves before Q2 2021. LOL.
    But at least Alder Lake seems to be the first Intel core design after many years that’s worth to take a look at. Rocket Lake is DOA because of Zen 3. And Intel know it. The downside of Alder Lake is its big.LITTLE nonsense. Nobody really wants that in a desktop system. But at least Alder Lake could win back some trust until Zen 4.
