Intel ‘Alder Lake-P’ CPU makes its first appearance on Geekbench 5

We’ve known that Intel is working on Alder Lake-P processors for laptops for a while now, but we haven’t had much indication of performance or specs. That is beginning to change this week, as an Alder Lake-P CPU has finally appeared in a benchmark database. 

According to the Geekbench 5 entry found by @Benchleaks, this unnamed Alder Lake-P processor features 14x cores and 20 threads. This “odd” core configuration is because of Alder Lake’s hybrid design, featuring big cores (high-performance) and small cores (high-efficiency), where the big cores feature Hyper-threading and the small ones don’t. The 14C/20T core configuration is achieved by using 6x big cores with HT (12x threads) and 8x small cores. This results in 6 + 8 = 14 cores and 12 + 8 = 20 threads. According to previous leaks and given the 6+8 core configuration, this processor might well be the flagship SKU of the series.

The Geekbench entry also shows us that the processor features 24MB of L3 cache, 2.5MB of L2 cache, and a base frequency of 0.8GHz, but it could boost up to 4.7GHz. During the benchmark, the processor operating frequencies ranged from 3.246GHz and 4.661GHz, averaging at 4.27GHz.

The Geekbench 5 entry also gives us details on the integrated GPU, which scored 13,438 points. GT2 Xe Graphics iGPU clocked at 1.15GHz with 96 EUs scores roughly the same as a GTX 660Ti (13,514). Intel Alder Lake-P processors should be available in laptops in late 2021.
