Intel’s Alder Lake-S CPUs signify the primary desktop lineup from the chipmaker to lastly ditch the (almost) decade-old 14nm course of. Though the chips are a giant step up from Rocket Lake by way of sheer efficiency, the facility effectivity leaves a lot to be desired. That is doubly true because the firm renamed its 10nm ESF node to Intel 7. Assessments carried out by @Raichu present that the Core i7-12700K when run with the effectivity cores disabled at 4.2 GHz (at v1.012) is almost 30% extra environment friendly than the Rocket Lake-based Core i7-11700K.
The 10nm Enhanced SuperFin course of is kind of the identical because the 10nm no less than by way of PPT. With an influence draw of 90W at 4.2GHz, the Core i7-12700K (Alder Lake-S) is roughly 30% extra environment friendly than the Core i7-11700K (Rocket Lake-S) at 118W. The Core i9-9900K (14++) with an influence draw of 125W is 40% extra power-hungry than the 12700K and a minor 6% greater than the 11700K (14nm++++).
