The numbers witeken mentioned may not be far off, based on the fact that RKL is a CML successor. Any further flagship product will need to beat 10c/20t in ST performance, MT performance, or both.Taking away his exaggeration, what’s the more reasonable performance estimate?
So we know RKL is 8c/16t, and we know MT performance must be at least equal to CML 10t/20t. That means RKL must somehow make up for a 20% core count deficit, which in turn requires 25% more performance per core. It's unlikely it will clock higher under heavy workloads, so we're looking at 25% IPC uplift just to match CML. And here we are, right in the middle of witeken's 20-30% IPC estimate.
Having said that, Intel needs to design the **** out of this 14nm port to make a worthwhile product against their own
