Didn't rocketlake show far more improvement in Cinebench, than in most other applications?
I will wait for more benchmarks on other applications before getting too excited about Alderlake.
Not that I am aware of. Source? In CB20, Rocket Lake landed exactly where one would expect it to. Rocket Lake’s performance was never the issue, power consumption is. Rocket lake and Zen 3 were pretty close when it comes to performance, tge issue is that Rocket Lake needed 2-3 times the power to get there thanks primarily to an old node.
The 8-core 11900K easily trades blows with the 8-core 5800X: https://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/2787?vs=2675
Intel’s 10nm node is comparable to TSMC 7nm, and that is what a lot of random people here don’t get, AMD is not launching a 5nm chip until well into next year, over a year from now if some rumors are to be believed. Intel is launching their 7nm node (equivalent to TSMC3/4nm, ahead of 5nm unless Intel gimps it) next year, but, if current rumors and/or announcements are to be believed, they won’t launch a 7nm (TSMC 3/4nm product) x86 part until 2023 if announcements/rumors are accurate. Intel will likely leapfrog AMD every other year if this trend continues.
Meanwhile, Golden Cove itself is rumored to offer a significant bump over Rocket Lake and Zen 3. Intel’s first gen desktop 10nm. part beats AMD’s equivalent last-gen part by several percentage points. Both Zen 2 and Zen 3 were on 7nm, that is 2 years of parts Intel is going to blow past. I’m not afraid to call it like it is. AMD had me at Zen 1 Threadripper, Zen 2 WAS A NO-BRAINER. ZEN 3 WAS A SOLID “YES FOR ME!!!” HOWEVER, I REALLY WANT ASTEROX TO STOP USING ANNOYING bold color driven text, err, what I actually (somewhat meant, Asterox, you need to chill with the colors and bold bold font before we all go on strike until you are banned. Your point can be made without using caps or colors. If you feel that people aren’t reading your posts, maybe thank twice before
posting random nonsense) was that I personally want really want awesome laptop performance at a less than 4 lb weight. AMD started it, but they have yet to finish the job. Intel is about to school AMD on the laptop and the desktop. This needs to happen, and thankfully, it appears to be happening.
Before you cheer on AMD, ask them where their 16 core laptop chips are. AMD is more than capable of producing such a chip. You should also look at my post history here and elsewhere if you think I am an Intel shill. I am not afraid to call out either company for the shenanigans they pull. I have purchased AMD/Cyrix when they were beating up Intel, and Intel when Intel nearly bankrupted AMD. I have owned 3DFX, AMD, and NVIDIA GPUs, among others. My only Agenda with tech is I love tech and love being able to do my stuff (development, video/graphics production and editing and gaming).
I don’t care who or what, Intel, AMD, NVIDIA, etc. I just want to do my thing and go home.
I have a decent track record for past predictions (people thought I was nuts about RDNA2…funny nobody talks about THAT now) and I am making another one: Intel is going to do just fine for Alder Lake. AMD will keep Intel from getting too far ahead thanks to 3D cache, but both Intel and AMD will be within 10% of each other for the foreseeable future, with one leapfrogging the other as a node advantage appears.
EDIT: Sorry about the colors/bold/caps. @Asterox is becoming an annoyance to many due to his obsession with text style. To mods: please look at his posts on desktop and mobile, and on a variety of platforms, and in both light/dark modes. You will understand why many of us are frustrated.
EDIT: I am also not implying he should be banned or anything, but rather, he should be coerced into using an automatic font, color, style, and size. There is no reason for any user to pick random arbitrary font colors or sizes on this forum (except title vs. regular) and very few reasons for font style.
