Gigabyte appears to be evaluating its next-gen Intel Alder Lake-P CPU-powered AORUS laptops with each DDR5 and DDR4 reminiscence configurations.
Intel Alder Lake-P CPUs With DDR5 and DDR4 Reminiscence Configurations Noticed In Gigabyte’s Subsequent-Gen AORUS 17 Laptops
Yesterday, an entry of Gigabyte’s AORUS 17 laptop computer sporting the Intel Alder Lake-P mobility CPU was unearthed. It was the primary entry for a high-end laptop computer that includes Intel’s next-gen Hybrid chips. A brand new entry has now been noticed which appears to level out that we would get each DDR5 & DDR4 cellular options based mostly across the Alder Lake-P platform.
The newest entry options the identical Intel Alder Lake-P configuration with 14 cores that embody 6 efficiency cores (based mostly on Golden Cove structure) and eight effectivity cores (based mostly on Intel Gracemont structure). The primary distinction is that this specific chip has barely higher clocks versus the one which leaked out yesterday and contains a 1.2 GHz base clock however a 3.4 GHz max frequency (beforehand pattern peaked at 1.75 GHz). As such, the general efficiency is barely higher on the most recent variant.
This Intel Alder Lake-P CPU was featured inside the Gigabyte AORUS 17 YE4 laptop computer and as soon as once more, the leak comes from Gigabyte’s Taiwan HQ. However probably the most noteworthy factor is that this laptop computer has 16 GB of DDR4-3200 reminiscence put in in comparison with DDR5-4800 on the earlier entry. Now each laptops are very early prototypes however trying on the reminiscence efficiency, we are able to see DDR5-4800 providing higher latency (albeit with random spikes resulting from an early pattern) in comparison with DDR4-3200.
It ought to be identified that the DDR4-3200 reminiscence from Samsung contains a CL19 timing whereas the DDR5-4800 reminiscence from SK Hynix contains a CL40 timing. Regardless of the unfastened timings, the DDR5 reminiscence is offering barely higher latencies although the mid-bench spikes are regarding.

We count on them to be fastened within the remaining variants. This beautiful a lot confirms that we are going to see Intel Alder Lake CPUs in each DDR5 and DDR4 reminiscence configurations on the cellular platform, identical rumors have acknowledged an analogous reminiscence segmentation on the Alder Lake-P desktop platform with higher-end motherboards that includes DDR5 help whereas lower-end boards retaining DDR4 help. It’ll undoubtedly be fascinating to see the totally different value and efficiency tiers these DDR5 & DDR4 laptops would fall inside.
