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.
