It's Skylake performance per clock that people agreed Gracemont can reach, not Skylake performance!You can't have it both ways, either it will offer performance similar to skylake or it won't. I'm inclined to think it will.
That Alder Lake ES produced a GB5 score that only 4.5Ghz+ Skylake cores can get. In order for 8 Gracemont @ 3.4-3.6Ghz to get the same or better scores as 8 Skylake cores @ 4.5Ghz+, the difference in IPC would amount to almost 40%. This is Golden Cove range.
