The cores and thread count notwithstanding, the Geekbench page also shows the processor runs at a maximum frequency of 4.7GHz. That isn’t too bad, but it’s also not an impressive number, given that virtually all of Intel’s higher-range CPUs run at boost clocks above 5GHz.
On another note, this isn’t the first leak pertaining to Alder Lake either. Back in January, rumours surfaced about a 16-cores, 32-threads CPU. Additional details pointed to the CPU having a boost clock of just 4GHz, but more importantly, it was also the first mention of Intel’s upcoming 10nm CPU lineup having a consumer desktop CPU with a core and thread count beyond 10-cores.
