Intel Alder Lake-M processor shows up in benchmark database with 10 cores and a 68 W PL4 TDP

It seems that new Intel Core M processors are on the horizon based on its Alder Lake architecture. The upcoming Alder Lake-M processors have a 9 W TDP but also 10 cores to play with. Undoubtedly, Intel's 'ultra mobile' processors will consume more than 9 W under load with that many cores.

Intel's Core M series of processors has improved in recent years, even if the company now refers to them under the Core Y moniker. For example, the Core i7-10510Y has a 7 W TDP, which it allocates to four Hyper-Threaded cores that can boost to 4.5 GHz. Now, the first sightings of low TDP processors based on Intel's Alder Lake architecture have surfaced online, courtesy of SiSoftware Sandra.

The listings refer to a processor called 'Genuine Intel(R) 0000 (10C 20T 806MHz/4.7GHz, 4x 1.25MB L2, 12MB L3)', benchmarked in 'Intel AlderLake-M LP5 RVP'. While SiSoftware Sandra has not provided a marketing name, the Computer/Device and Result ID strings confirm several aspects about the processor. We would discount any scores for the time being though, since these will be engineering samples.

However, the listings state that the Alder Lake-M processor has ten cores, and support for LPDDR5 RAM. As VideoCardz notes, these ten cores will be split between two performance and Hyper-Threaded cores (Golden Cove), and eight efficiency cores (Atom/Gracemont). Hence, this configuration should have twelve threads, not the twenty listed.

Additionally, the processor has an 806 MHz base clock and a 4.7 GHz boost clock. SiSoftware Sandra suggests that the Alder Lake-M processor has a 30 W TDP in PL2 and a 68 W one in PL4 too, much higher than its 9 W TDP expected. Reputedly, this processor is Alder Lake-M's full configuration, denoted by its 'BGA Type4 HDI' reference. Intel is thought to unveil Alder Lake-M processors at CES 2022 in January.
