    All that slow cores-fast cores, odd number of threads still on ddr4 just feels wierd man. Im not hyped at all for alder lake.

    Considering AMD will do BIG little Zen5(?) I am really curious about Alder Lake might
    even buy one. Will wait for the DDR5 motherboards, hopefully both DDR4 and DDR5
    motherboards will be available at launch and that they use 24pin so no new PSU is
    needed.

    Also I hope the performance rumors are true or at least close and that AMD and Intel
    start beat each other when it comes to performance from now on every time both
    releases a new generation. :)

    despite all of my faint praise for Intel, i'm psyched to see these go on the market.

    and relating to a story posted a few days ago these are Intel 7, not 7nm.
    that confusion is exactly what was desired.

    What? Alder Lake is the most exciting Intel launch in years. New Intel 7 node, DDR5, PCIE5, ATX V12, rumors and leaks showing very nice performance uplift overall (take with a grain of salt of course). You are just a cynical person, that is all.

    New design, new socket, new DDR5: it is exiting to see what the performance and capabilities will be.
    AMD isn't sleeping either, but I'm mostly interested in the MCM GPUs coming, cuz I'd love to see those make GPUs cheaper and more powerful.

    Still 8 big cores at best. Not sure how exciting this could be.

    Exciting would have been if they release any 10nm on existing platform.

    Not a new node really, simply rebranded.

    WIll be interesting to see what performance this chip delivers, if it is a good test case for big.little configuration on desktop over HT/SMT and power saving settings.

    I am also intrigued by that cinebench score. I took it to imply that all 24 threads can work simultaneously if needed, unless they have done some serious IPC work?

    Assuming these are desktop CPUs, what do you need more than 8 for? Also, not like the little cores are worthless - I'm sure a little core is better than the secondary logical thread of a big core.

    They have, for mobile.

    A Skylake based core takes about 10w or less. So, yes, little cores are useless on desktop when we are getting 400w tdp gpus. Who cares about 5w.

    More than 8 cores are great for VM. If you only care about gaming, why would you get those little cores.

    I get the feeling where not gona have much of choice in that matter and big/little core is what everything is gona change too, hope i wrong though

    Sure. It could be useful for some specific tasks. But they need to offer 16 big cores. Then the little ones.

    Change all the platform for still 8 big cores can't call it exciting.

    Exciting will be 16 big cores on Intel vs 16 big cores on amd.

    I'm not hyped for little big cores, sounds too much like a smart phone, couldn't give a rats ass about ddr5 neither, what does it bring more speed waw!:rolleyes:
    Part from that have you ever in you life been hyped for anything other than amd?

    Another advantage would be lighter wallet.
