Royal Core Project would be Intel's answer to the Apple M1

Apple, with its M1 processors, has created a new benchmark for CPUs in the world of notebooks. Both Intel and AMD offer high-level and respectable solutions, in some areas even more powerful than the Apple chip, but the performance / consumption ratio, combined with the always excellent optimization of the system developed by the Cupertino house, make the 'M1 a truly unique product.

Obviously Intel has not remained idle and has very ambitious plans in store for its future, which see in the short term the launch of the new twelfth generation processors of the series Core “Alder Lake” and instead foresee in the long term the development and launch of 5 new generations, of which today we learn a few more details. It will be very interesting, in fact, to see what the intentions of the Santa Clara company will actually be following the passage of the new CPUs based on LGA1700 socket.

An old acquaintance of ours, the YouTuber, has dealt with the future of Intel. Moore's Law is Dead, who posted a video on the channel in which he summarizes various rumors regarding the next generations of CPUs and analyzes what future architectures should be. According to reports, Intel is preparing a new type of Core series processors with a single goal: to improve the efficiency of the x86 architecture. In fact, it is no secret that at the moment the ARM architecture is equipped with a higher efficiency than x86, and this is precisely one of the reasons that led Apple to abandon Intel CPUs in favor of a proprietary SoC.

The video also shows what are hypothetically the improvements that there will be between the various generations, showing at least theoretically the impressive increases in CPI from one series to another. The video also reveals Intel's plans for 4-way Hyperthreading (SMT4) technology and DDR5-7400 memory support. Furthermore, one of the quotes seems to confirm the various rumors regarding the codenames of the Lion Cove and Panther Cove microarchitectures, which will be aboard the Lunar Lake and Nova Lake CPUs respectively.

We are talking about the next generation Granite Rapids, which should (at least on paper) guarantee an aggressive return from the performance point of view in the server market, which sees AMD increasingly on the rise with its EPYC series processors. The Xeon Scalable CPUs will be equipped with Redwood Cove microarchitecture, the same as the processors of the Emeralds Rapids series, but with a number of cores that will certainly be greater than 64.

Finally, the successor of Granite is also mentioned in the video Rapids, or Diamond Rapids, which however will not arrive on the market before 2025. Not much is known about this CPU, but we can safely assume that a new platform and a new microarchitecture will be used. Obviously, these are only rumors, but it is good to specify that in the past many of the advances released by Moore's Law is Dead were later found to be true.

On Amazon you will find the brand new AMD APU, or the Ryzen 5 5600G, processor with integrated graphics that allows you to play games up to 720p without the use of a discrete graphics card.
