Earlier this week, news hit the wire that Intel's Alder Lake-S is slated for a November 2021 launch. This new 10nm architecture from Intel will be used for both the desktop and laptop markets. It's one of the biggest upgrades in years. First up, the biggest change is the adoption of a hybrid core architecture, with up to eight high-performance cores and up to eight energy-efficient cores. Next, the architecture will introduce support both DDR5 and PCI Express 5.0.

Intel Alder Lake-S engineering sample runs DOTA2

Now VideoCardz reports the first benchmark scores of the Intel Alder Lake-S hit the web. An early engineering sample running at 2.2GHz was tested in DOTA2 on a system with four 8GB DDR5-4800 memory sticks.

Sadly, there's very little to learn from this leak other than that engineering samples are making the rounds right now:
With the GeForce RTX 3080 desktop graphics card, the system scored an average of 119.98 frames per second in DOTA2. Unfortunately, those numbers are meaningless as there is no information on the game settings (image quality or resolution), not to mention system configuration. Pretty much the only thing we learn from this leak is that Alder Lake-S is already capable of gaming.
