Intel Alder Lake Engineering Sample Spotted with DDR5-4800MHz Memory In CapFrameX

Intel's Alder Lake-S series of desktop processors are due to launch later this year, finally moving Intel to 10nm in the desktop space while bringing forward two new CPU architecture to the forefront of the company's product stack. Not only will Intel deliver their first hybrid desktop processor, but they are also due to be the first desktop CPU manufacturer to deliver a DDR5 compatible x86 processor. 

On the CapFrameX benchmarking database, as first reported by Computerbase, an unknown Intel 12th Generation desktop processor has been shown running with 4.8GHz DDR5 memory. The test shows the processor playing DOTA 2 with an Nvidia RTX 3080 graphics card with a core frequency of 2.2GHz. 

This early gaming test was conducted using an Alder Lake Engineering Sample, explaining the low clock speeds of the next-generation Intel processor. The processor was shown using four 8GB DDR5 modules at 4,800 MHz, highlighting the processor's strong compatibility with next-generation DDR memory. 

The performance data from this benchmark run is mostly useless, as we do not know the settings used to test the processor or what scene within DOTA 2 was used to benchmark the CPU. Based on the raw data from the benchmark, the game appears to be running at a semi-locked 120 FPS with lots of frametime variation (as the game's average FPS/frametime line is a horizontal chart with no gradient).

Intel's Alder Lake processors are due to offer users up to eight high-performance Golden Cove CPU cores and eight smaller high-efficiency Gracemont CPU cores. These processors are due to launch later this year, with our industry sources pointing towards a late 2021 release, possibly in November or December.

In a recent Tweet, the creator of CapFrameX confirmed that all benchmark results within the CapFrameX database are intentionally uploaded. No data is uploaded to the CapFrameX database automatically. With this in mind, this result should be considered an intentional leak from Intel or one of their hardware partners.

So X570 and Z590 are pretty much officially the last DDR4 boards before we move to DDR5, Will be interesting to see what type of speeds we get to with DDR5.Quote
