Sure, that's still a more commendable goal* than the high frequency pursuit Intel's desktop chips had for half a decade now and even trickled down to mobile chips. Due to the lack of a separate power plane Gracemont cores had to follow suit with Golden Cove cores in the ADL chip so far. In this chip they'll finally stand alone.Gracemont Cores were design for Die Area/Performance efficiency, specially on Integer Performance. They are efficient cores but that is not their main design goal.
(* and a design goal Intel's server chips should take a look at after the SPR monstrosities.)
