Precisely. Intel core even at 10nm is a lot bigger than AMD's while performing comparably at best.Zen 3 increased core size only by 14% over Zen 2. Sunny Cove is how much larger than Skylake? 50%? Willow Cove adds cache but the reason for the addition seems mysterious as it performs pretty much like Sunny Cove.
Now the question is how much bigger Colden Cove cores will be compared to Willow Cove.
I am very interested in new info about Alder Lake at HotChips 33, but considering It's only 30min I don't expect much being revealed.
