Hybrid processor Intel Alder Lake appeared on the Geekbench 5 platform.
As the Intel Alder Lake platform took hold of more and more developers, the features of engineering samples and preliminary benchmark results began to spread to a wider audience. Finally, someone added the benchmark results of a 14-core Alder Lake processor to Primate Labs’ Geekbench 5 database.
The Alder Lake hybrid processor supports high-performance (HP) Golden Cove cores, energy-efficient (EE) Gracemont cores and Intel Xe graphics, as well as a PCIe 5.0 interface and four types of memory (DDR4, DDR5, LPDDR4, LPDDR5). These processors will be the company’s first hybrid CPU for mainstream PCs. Therefore, users cannot wait to learn about the performance of the processor and whether AMD can beat the best processors, including Ryzen, in multi-threaded workloads.
An Intel partner working with Alder Lake-P DDR5 RVP (reference verification platform) posted Geekbench 5 results of a 14-core Alder Lake processor with a 1.40 GHz base clock (and a 27.1 GHz boost clock, which is clearly wrong) and a 24 MB cache. . The Alder Lake RVP chip has achieved 1287 single-core and 8950 multi-core scores.
Because we do not know the actual boost frequency of the processor, it is difficult to draw any conclusions or even make predictions about the real-world performance potential of Intel’s upcoming platform. Considering a low base frequency and a balanced power plan of the card, it is likely a laptop platform.
It is observed that the single-threaded Geekbench 5 performance of a 14-core Alder Lake reference design card operating at an unknown frequency is comparable to AMD’s Ryzen 9 4900H (Zen 2, 3.30 GHz ~ 4.44 GHz). Still, Alder Lake is significantly behind the results of Willow Cove-based Tiger Lake tracks.
Overall, the Geekbench 5 results from Intel’s AlderLake-P DDR5 RVP card look pretty good. The production Alder Lake platform is expected to hit the market a few months from now, later this year.
