Alder Lake-S 16-core processor using DDR5 memory spotted on SiSoftware database

A new entry for an Alder Lake-S 16-core processor paired with DDR5 memory has been found on the SiSoftware database. Although this isn’t the first entry of an Alder Lake-S processor found in this database, it’s the first time we’ve seen one with DDR5 memory being mentioned.

The SiSoftware entry found by @momomo_us lists a 16-core Alder Lake-S CPU with 32 threads (likely an error), a 1.8GHz base clock and a boost clock of 4.0GHz, which is significantly higher than the previous entry (1.4GHz base). Given that the Alder Lake-S processor architecture features a hybrid design, only the 8x big cores should feature Hyper-threading, therefore, this processor is expected to feature a total of 24 threads. The entry also shows that this processor features 10×1.25MB of L2 cache and 30MB of L3 cache.

The Alder Lake CPU entry also detailed the memory configuration used by the system, reporting that it was using the PC76800 DDR memory specification. Although the PC76800 doesn’t exist yet, the actual memory configuration that the system was running was most likely the PC5-38400, which translates to a memory speed of 4800MHz. There are also some details regarding the built-in iGPU of this Alder Lake processor, which should come with 32 EUs (256 Shadings Units) clocked at 1.5GHz.

Intel Alder Lake-S platform is expected to launch before the end of 2021.

KitGuru says: What kind of performance are you expecting from Intel Alder Lake-S processors? Are you thinking about upgrading your system with Intel’s 10nm desktop CPUs?

KitGuru – Children’s Hospice Charity PC Auction

We can all agree that the last 12 months have been challenging and stressful for everyone, and I wanted to utilise Kitguru in a positive way for a great cause. Over the next two weeks, we are holding a silent auction via email for our readers and supporters, with 100% of the proceeds being donated to the Northern Ireland Children's Hospice. Additionally KitGuru will be donating the same amount as the winning bid, effectively doubling the donation to the charity. This is a very worthy cause that we want to support this year and everyone who enters will know that they are potentially going to help children in real need.
