exist Intel Architecture Day, Chipzilla demonstrated its work on the upcoming Alder Lake generation processors. The Alder Lake processor is equipped with the first mixed configuration of large and small cores, and is the first x86 design to be put on the market with this mixed setting.Today thanks Hong Kong Environmental Protection Agency website pass through momomo_us, We found an image of an early engineering sample (ES) of the Alder Lake processor.
Alder Lake combines smaller, more energy-efficient cores (called E cores by Intel) with larger, more powerful P cores to provide a perfect combination of better performance and power usage. According to the scenario, Alder Lake will dedicate E-core to some other workloads, and P-core will be used for “weightlifting”. P-core architecture is based on Golden Cove IP, while E-core is essentially a Gracemont design.
According to HKEPC, on HotChips 33, Intel demonstrated that two P cores and eight E cores can provide 50% higher performance while using less power than the comparable 4-core P core design. This is why Intel decided to use a new hybrid approach.
According to today’s survey results, HKEPC has obtained some pictures showing early engineering samples of Alder Lake processors, which are conveniently named QWVO. Although we don’t know the exact configuration of these chips, the above figure points out that their frequency is 1.6 GHz, which looks quite low, but it may just be the basic speed of the E core.
In addition, as we wait for the official release of the complete Alder Lake product line, we want to know how the software will adapt to the hybrid technology. Song Jiqiang from Microsoft pointed out that the company optimized the Windows 11 operating system to support hybrid methods, opening up a whole new field of possibilities for hybrid computing.
