Intel Arrow Lake-S Desktop CPUs To Function 50% Larger L2 P-Core Cache Versus Raptor Lake

Intel’s next-generation Arrow Lake-S Desktop CPUs which can succeed the 14th Gen Raptor Lake lineup will characteristic a bigger cache design.

Intel’s Subsequent-Gen Arrow Lake Desktop CPUs To Pack Larger L2 Cache Per P-Core Than Raptor Lake CPUs

The knowledge has been revealed by Golden Pig Improve states that every of the P-Core featured on the Arrow Lake-S CPUs will carry an extra 1 MB of L2 cache, totaling 3 MB. That can mark a 50% improve over the two MB L2 cache per core featured on Raptor Cove and a 2.4x uplift over the Golden Cove cores. That is going to be a dramatic uplift to the L2 facet of issues whereas the CPUs will retain the identical L3 cache counts from Raptor Lake chips.

The L2 of every massive core of ARL-S might be elevated to 3MB, cache insanity

Following is the comparability between the L2 cache counts of the three hybrid generations:

  • Arrow Lake-S (Lion Cove P-Core) – 3 MB L2 Cache Per Core
  • Raptor Lake-S (Raptor Cove P-Core) – 2 MB L2 Cache Per Core
  • Alder Lake-S (Golden Cove P-Core) – 1.25 MB L2 Cache Per Core

Now primarily based on latest studies, Intel’s Arrow Lake-S is meant to be a part of the brand new LGA 1851 platform which is more likely to make its debut later subsequent yr with the 800-series motherboards. The earlier data means that Arrow Lake might be a mixture of Lion Cove P-Cores and Skymont E-Cores however the identical architectures are additionally confirmed for Lunar Lake which is predicted to hit low-power platforms, type of like Meteor Lake however minus the HX/S SKUs. The Arrow Lake-S CPUs will characteristic the “Intel 20A” course of node and there have been rumors about Intel switching to TSMC 3nm course of although nothing is concrete in regards to the actual processes the tiles might be primarily based upon.

Just lately leaked benchmarks present that the Intel Arrow Lake-S Desktop CPUs of their present state are projected to supply as much as a 21% efficiency acquire over Raptor Lake CPUs on the identical energy and twice the iGPU efficiency. It was revealed that Intel nonetheless plans to make at the very least as much as 8+16 core configurations for Arrow Lake-S which might match the present Raptor Lake-S flagship, the Core i9-13900K/14900K. There have been rumors of an excellent greater variety of E-Cores however nothing has been formalized round these but. Additionally, it stays to be seen if the desktop lineup will proceed because the fifteenth Gen or standardize the “Core Extremely” collection branding. The Arrow Lake CPUs will mark the 2nd era of Core Extremely with Meteor Lake being the first.

The Arrow Lake-S Desktop CPU lineup is deliberate to launch in late 2024 and might be supported by the LGA 1851 socketed motherboards throughout the 800-series household. The corporate has an Innovation occasion deliberate for nineteenth September so we are able to count on extra particulars then.
