16-core Intel Alder Lake-S CPU shows similar multi-core performance as Ryzen 5 3600X

Intel’s 12th-generation Alder Lake-S processors may still be out of reach. But the chip maker has already started sampling chips for PC partners, and other engineering samples are already working in the hardware world as well. Advanced SKU (via Likebench) with 16 cores has apparently broken its shell in Geekbench 5.

Alder Lake-S is a hybrid desktop processor, which means that not all cores within the chip are created equal. The sample featured on Geekbench 5 is said to have 16 cores, 24 threads and match one of the potential configurations we’ve seen. There is also a rationale behind the individual thread count.
