These benchmarks apparently haven't used the big core even in single-thread tests. It's essentially a 4-core Tremont and the results are pretty good seen as such.The Samsung Galaxy Book S with Intel's new Lakefield Hybrid processor has arrived in our office. We have first benchmark results for the new hybrid CPU.www.notebookcheck.net
First benchmarks. It does manage to beat the 8cx in the Galaxy Book S in the browser tests but only barely in most of them.
Frequency is pretty low on the R15 run, only getting 2.4 Ghz on the single core test and 1.9 on the multi core test. That gives a score of 255 on the MT test which is pretty low and is about what an n5000 gives anyway.
This makes a lot more sense - as expected - matching a 1035G4 in slim devices (Surface Pro etc).Geekbench 5

Appears to be bouncing between the big and small clusters on the R15 single core test. Seems to be working more properly on the browser tests.These benchmarks apparently haven't used the big core even in single-thread tests.

Well, putting aside the lacking article and the poorly functioning benchmark, Tremont looks really good.Appears to be bouncing between the big and small clusters on the R15 single core test. Seems to be working more properly on the browser tests.
Cinebench clearly didn't use the big core in the singlethread test. The question is why is this, could it be a software issue which possibly could be fixed.
These results are meaningless without the Windows version.
Scheduling for Lakefield will be added in W10X.
If this uses existing W10, you're essentially testing a 4-core Atom.
Obviously it's not going to be 10X. It's not available yet.It sounds plausible and it's a huge mistake from Notebookcheck to ignore the windows version, also the driver infos are missing.
Check the name of that writer.
One of the articles about the Lenovo X1 Fold said 10X will have optimizations for it. I assumed battery life but surely scheduler is another?We still don't have confirmation that the Galaxy S that Notebookcheck got their hands on is a final retail unit with mature scheduler, but a forum poster repeating his idea of truth as fact is not the best way to get to the bottom of this.
I don't know how you came to that conclusion. The MT performance, therefore Tremont performance is no better than Goldmont Plus. They are pretty much at the same TDP level.These 4 cores are expected to pull 2-3W under load. They match 6-10W Pentium/Celerons (admittedly, pretty old ones).
I really wanted to buy a NUC with N5000 or J4105. I just lost all interest.
Does not need to be added, because it works nicely on the Surface Pro X. At least it would be suprising if x86 Windows does not have all the scheduler updates from Windows ARM.And we shouldn't be surprised because heterogenous core global scheduling will be added in Windows 10X.
This preproduction Samsung Book S probably uses normal Windows.
Yeah, I posted the CB15 MT screenshot on the previous page, aligns perfectly with your previous theory based on benchmark scores.If you look at NBC's Task Scheduler screenshot, there's one core that's not working, and I bet that's Sunny Cove.
They are actually reviewing it, which means they believe it's a final retail unit or equivalent.The Intel model uses a bit more power in almost every scenario, which is also noticeable in the battery runtime. Samsung advertises a lower runtime, and our results so far confirm that: The load test runs for almost 4 hours (without outdoor mode), 2 hours less than the ARM model. The Wi-Fi test at 150 nits is still running, but it should result in about 11-12 hours compared to more than 16 hours for the ARM model.
This is how it looks on my desktop i3 7100 under Cinebench R15 ST.The ST benchmark screenshot looks equally weird though, the Tremont cluster is under some type of continuous load according to the Task Manager.
Yup. It's still better than the U series but seems about the same as Y. Intel talks in their presentation that enabling Sunny Cove allows 33% better performance and 17% better perf/watt under WebXPRT 3.and the supposed strong point of Lakefield is not really there:
Notebookcheck says the chip only clocks up to 2.4 Ghz in Singlecore workloads and ~1.9 Ghz for 100% multithreads workloads which uses 4 cores, apparently the Tremont cores. The fifth core is idling. The sreenshot is from Cinebench, so it might look different in other applications. But it's obvious that Sunny Cove isn't working in Cinebench R15/R20 Singlethread.Interessanterweise sehen wir bei Single-Core-Belastung maximal 2,4 GHz und bei der Verwendung von allen Kernen laufen 4 Kerne mit ~1,9 GHz und 100 % Last, während ein Kern mit knapp 10 % Last und 200-300 MHz arbeitet.
Looks like task manager load info ignores Sunny Cove in this case, we can see from the screenshot there a 4 cores fully loaded and the fith core is loaded with 10%, Notebookcheck says the fith cores runs with only 200-300 Mhz. Or possibly Sunny Cove is running but with 200-300 Mhz only?Why is Task Manager saying its at 100% load under multi-threaded loads? Is it actually running Sunny Cove or is it a misreport?
Reviewers should take advantage of HWInfo more.Or possibly Sunny Cove is running but with 200-300 Mhz only?
