Twitter user momomo_us discovered an interesting entry in the database of the SiSoft Sandra benchmark.

The newly spotted sample is faster than previous entries that were discovered on the Sisoftware or Geekbench website. It's a 16-core Alder Lake-S processor that identifies as having a 1.8GHz base clock, 4.0GHz Boost, 10x 1.125MB L2 cache, and 30MB L3 cache. The chip was tested in a system with DDR5-4800 memory.

Alder Lake-S uses a hybrid design, with high-performance and energy-efficient cores. Only the high-performance cores feature hyper-threading so this results in an unusual number of threads.

Performance-wise it's impossible to tell anything about this chip as it's still way too early for that. Intel is expected to introduce Alder Lake-S in the second half of this year.
While ‘processor multi-media’ performance has dropped from 438 Mpix to 263 Mpix compared to the 1.38 GHz ADP-S sample back from October, the memory bandwidth, for instance, has increased from 13.49 GB/s to 34.21 GB/s (254%).
