According to the latest SiSoftware benchmark result, we now have our first look at one of Intel’s Alder Lake M mobile processors and the listing states that this Alder Lake chip will be featuring a ten-core configuration with up to a 4.7GHz boost frequency, along with support for LPDDR5 memory.
This is the first Alder Lake M chip that we’ve seen in any benchmark, and this means that this one is a prototype of the CPU. And the doubt gets more clearer by the fact that it was tested on an Intel Reference Validation Platform.
From what we know about the Alder Lake-M platform is that the CPU lineup will be one of Intel’s most power-efficient processor lineups for the Alder Lake generation. The CPUs from this lineup will target low-powered notebooks and ultrabooks that are designed to focus on power efficiency rather than performance, like the Alder Lake-P models.
Coming to the configuration of Alder Lake-M, we know that it will be based on what Intel calls its UP4 design, which maxes out at two P-cores and eight E-cores. This is a significant change from both the mobile and desktop chips, which use an equal (or almost equal amount) of P-cores and E-cores.
According to SiSoftware results, the CPU has 20 threads and E-cores don’t have more than two threads, so this could be an error on SiSoftware’s part. Other specifications include 5MB of L2 cache and 12MB of L3 cache along with a base frequency of 806MHz and a boost clock of 4.7GHz.
The CPU also runs on LPDDR5 memory and has an LP5 branding in the name, meaning that Alder Lake M will be one of the first mobile platforms to adopt low-profile DDR5 memory. Memory bandwidth for this type of memory should be similar to regular DDR5.
It’s expected that the performance of the chip will be better than Intel’s current low-powered units, so we expect better performance than a Ryzen 3 3200G.
