Intel Alder Lake-S processor with 16 cores and 24 threads appears on Geekbench

As the launch of Alder Lake processors comes closer, there has been an increase in the number of benchmark database entries for these CPUs. The latest Alder Lake-S leak comes via Geekbench 4, showing the performance of a 16C/24T processor. 

First of all, unlike SiSoftware Sandra, Geekbench 4 hasn’t yet received a patch adding support for Intel hybrid architectures, consisting of big cores with hyper-threading and small cores with a single thread. This explains the maximum frequency of 27.2GHz displayed in the Geekbench 4 entry, which is a typo.

This entry features the Alder Lake-S processor with the highest base frequency until now. In the entries we shared of such processors on SiSoftware Sandra and Geekbench 5 databases, the processors were running at a base frequency of 1.4GHz. Then, it increased to 1.8GHz in a second SiSoftware Sandra entry. On this one, the base frequency is set at 2.2GHz.

Paired with 32GB of DDR5 memory, this Alder Lake-S processor scored 6,536 points in the single-core test, placing it between the Core i9-9900K and the Core i9-10900K. In the multi-core test, with a score of 47,870, this processor outperforms both Intel Core i9-9900K and i9-10900K. Considering that this is most likely an engineering sample, these results are already fairly promising.

KitGuru says: Are you thinking about upgrading to Intel Alder Lake-S once these CPUs become available?
