This year has been especially dire for Intel, which is experiencing major problems on different fronts. The latest has been the leak of 20GB of files, which include silicon blueprints, C drivers and a large amount of highly confidential information. To top it off, you have seen Intel Grand Ridge architecture data leaked onto your own website.
The new Intel Grand Ridge architecture would be based on Atom cores and would be designed for a work processor. AdoredTV has missed the slide, which talks about 24 cores, DDR5 support, and PCIe 4.0 support. The slide even shows us a block diagram of the internal structure of the company's new processors.
Intel Grand Ridge with PCIe 4.0 and DDR5 support
One of the great novelties of DDR5 is the increase of frequencies with respect to DDR4. As we can see, Intel Grand Ridge will support Dual Channel with 5600MHz frequencies. Currently DDR4 memories tend to support up to 3200MHz, frequencies much lower. This means an increase in the speed of the memories by 75%, which should improve the performance of the systems.
Grand Ridge, according to what has been learned, would be released by Intel in 2021. These new processors from the company would be based on the 7nm HLL + process, which is surprising. Recently the company has announced a delay of at least 6 months in the 7nm lithography.
The Grand Ridge silicones, which were based on an Atom core design, would be Snow Ridge's relay for 5G networks. These new Intel processors will have 24 cores and will operate at a frequency of 2.6GHz. Snow Ridge offers a frequency of 2.2GHz, so there is an interesting increase in frequencies.
On the other hand, it is clear that DDR5 will arrive in 2021 for the industrial sector and Data Centers. The new RAM memory standards first come to this segment and a year later to the domestic market. We could say that everything was as planned.
