necessary evil facilitates the production of good evil like alderlake. I'm sure your aware of the LGA1700 mounting issues.... what clusterfuck of design that is!Comet Lake wasn't even supposed to exist at all. It was a necessary evil to keep fresh product on the open market, followed by yet another necessary evil (Rocket Lake).
Well point being, once upon a time there was supposed to be a 10nm desktop product well prior to Alder Lake which never happened. Coffee Lake/Coffee Lake refresh, Comet Lake, and Rocket Lake all had to cover up for that gaping maw in Intel's lineup. So if there was product overlap back then, it's not surprising. That was major fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants territory for Intel.necessary evil facilitates the production of good evil like alderlake.

ADL uses two dies for all desktop SKUs: one is 8+8 and one is a considerably smaller 6+0. That's why you don't see efficiency cores anywhere in the i5 and i3 line except for 12600K which uses the 8+8 die.Are both ADL and RPL based on the same monolithic chip, and then disabling cores for the different SKU's?
In best case scenarios, how efficient are the E-cores perf/watt compared to zen3?
If I'm a person who live in the cave and see these data, I would guess the 5800X is a E-core while the another 'E-core' is not....With Alder Lake, Intel is betting big on hybrid CPU core configurations. The Core i9-12900K has eight P(erformance) cores and eight E(fficient) cores. We were curious and tested the processor running the E-Cores only to see how well they perform against architectures like Zen 2, Zen 3, Skylake...www.techpowerup.com

E-cores win in ST but lose in MT due to being too weak architecturally.
In a 1v1 comparison the desktop E-cores always lose in energy efficiency when looking at any meaningful load (except for very light loads). However, that is true while ignoring area difference. As long as the workload scales across multiple cores, at ISO area the greater number of E cores win by virtue of numbers and operating at more advantageous frequencies.In best case scenarios, how efficient are the E-cores perf/watt compared to zen3?
I've been using a mini-ITX for about five years now (with an i5-6500) and probably going to update this fall. The main thing I need is dual m.2 slots for mirrored SSDs. If using SO-DIMMs saves enough board space that dual m.2 slots becomes table stakes for mini-ITX boards I'm all for it.

This is a trend I would like to see. Desktop boards with SO-DIMM support. Would allow for more flexible Mini-ITX designs.
The way E-cores are used as part of ADL under Windows 11 so far makes them not that useful wrt power efficiency. Chips and Cheese did some article in January:
So energy efficiency wise E-cores don't offer any advantage for INT-loads from 3.2 GHz onward and shouldn't be used at all for non-INT loads at frequencies above 3.2 GHz as from that point onward they actually do worse than P-cores.
Personally I wasn't impressed by this at all (especially considering 12th gen chips are tuned to max out cores, thus make the worst possible use of the E-cores) and hope Intel does much better with the following gens.
I sure hope they'll fix this asap. The current behavior would only make sense if the scheduler could prefer E-cores until 3.2 GHz and move affected processes to P-cores once frequency passes that.They surely will sort this out, maybe Raptor Lake mobile is a candidate (new DLVR power delivery), if not I bet Meteor Lake will fix this.
ARM + Android and ARM + iOS have been doing it for years. Though it's hard to know exactly how many performance and efficiency sacrifices are made to facilitate this setup, since efficiency comparisons of heterogeneous core setups vs. homogeneous core setups on those platforms currently don't exist. In any case, mobile devices are quite happy to shut down entire core clusters to save power, which is not something you want to do on a desktop most of the time.Not trying to be a killjoy, but correctly using the 2 different cores by a scheduler seems to be a very difficult if not impossible.
From a hardware pov they all focused on (mostly essentially fixed to) running at least the little core if not both big and little cores close to the most efficient frequency. Same cannot be said of Intel's current implementation.ARM + Android and ARM + iOS have been doing it for years.
That is correct. Intel's implementation currently leaves much to be desired. I've toyed with a Snapdragon 845 under different conditions (okay, it was just my old phone lol) and found it to be pretty solid all around, though I must admit, I did not have any points of comparison, such as an equivalent ARM SoC with just "big" cores on it.Same cannot be said of Intel's current implementation.
Which Intel story was the last unfounded rumor from Charlie?If its SPR, then its disappointing. Just yesterday i read, granted on WCCF, that SPR Xeons-W are coming in October, including that mainstream ”hedt” line-up topping at those rumorex 24 cores. So maybe theyre not really and its just another unfounded rumor.
