Is this Intel's next-generation of Atom processors?


Intel "Grand Ridge" Architecture Leaked with DDR5 and PCIe 4.0

Slides detailing Intel's "Grand Ridge" architecture have leaked on the web, revealing the company's next-generation Atom-based processors. This slide came online through AdoredTV's "OverVolted" Podcast, revealing a CPU design with up to 24 cores, DDR5 support and PCIe 4.0 compatibility. 

With DDR5 memory, Intel's Grand Ridge processors can operate at speeds of up to 5600MHz in dual channel mode, delivering much more performance than today's DDR4 memory DIMMS. Today, 3200MHz memory has become common amongst gamers, with 5600MHz representing a 75% increase in raw clock speeds. 

Grand Ridge is expected to launch in 2021, though the processor's planned use of a 7nm HLL+ process may delay the architecture. With Grand Ridge being Atom-based, this design appears to be a successor to Snow Ridge, a CPU design that's designed for 5G base stations. 

According to the slide below, Grand Ridge will support up to 24 cores which operate at speeds of up to 2.6GHz. Intel's Snow Ridge processors operated at up to 2.2GHz, making its successor 400MHz faster.
