Upcoming AMD 8-Core CPU Performance Leaked
John Williamson / 3 years ago
Benchmarks of AMD’s upcoming “Heirofalcon” SOC have been leaked which indicate the chip’s capabilities and astonishing power to performance ratio. The SOC features 8 ARM 64-bit A57 cores operating at a frequency of 2.0GHz while only utilizing a maximum TDP of 30w. In terms of its specification, the Heirofalcon SOC is based on the 28nm manufacturing process and contains 4MB of L2 cache. Additionally, the CPU has a dual-channel DDR3/DDR4 memory controller with ECC support up to speeds of 1866MHz. As a result, the chip is incredibly versatile.
AMD plans to release a number of different versions with varying wattage demands which should relate to frequency alterations. Rather surprisingly, the leaked benchmarks provide a great amount of detail and include comparisons to older AMD chips. Please note, the benchmark was conducted using an early engineering sample which might not reflect the final version.
As we can see from the data, AMD’s Hierofalcon performs exceedingly well for an ARM-based CPU given the low TDP and 2.0GHz frequency.
In multi-core workloads, the chip once again manages to achieve great results, but falls well behind in tasks like kPipe. However, this is expected given its core architecture.
Finally, we can see the power efficiency rating across various benchmarks which shows how amazingly efficient the Hierofalcon CPU is. Throughout testing, the results were extremely consistent and signified a return to form. As always, it’s important to take any leaked benchmarks with a grain of salt, but the Hierofalcon looks very promising!
