Performance of Skylake Architecture at just fraction of power consumption. Alder Lake is going to be a big deal!

y are they comparing it to SKYLAKE, when they are supposed to compare it with ROCKET LAKE, which is it's immediate predecessor, they did not say anything about what is the NANOMETER Technology, did not say anything about the iGPU??????

These are the efficiency cores. The performance cores are 19% faster than rocketlake.

Better marketing strategy. Compare the new products to bad counterparts to show better numbers. Gullible consumers would happily take higher numbers as a sign of big improvements.
Do most people even buy processors after researching them? Most of the people who want a pc go for laptops which I guess are "you get what you get". A processor isn't very good for its price, well too bad as that is all you will get in the market. People see oh new generation, that must be good. Many people still ask if a laptop has a graphic card only and not which graphic card and buy based on that. Even going via the assembly route, people just go by seller's recommendations. Marketing relies on people's biases. If we want good Intel processors, we better hope AMD comes up with better processors and vice versa.
 
Don't think Intel would like to talk about this openly. They may have pricing arrangements with big customers, may give additional benefits to them over existing pricing. AMD EPYC is a serious contender in that space which big data-centers will definitely consider.

Undercutting prices can be considered anti-competitive practice too ? In that case, they will deny such reports ?

They should also leaked, what kind of CLOCK Speed for PERFORMANCE CORE, Effiiciency core. IMHO, it's 10nm Rocketlake, + 4 Mobile cores occupying one 10nm core in the name GOLDEN COVE+GRACEMONT :p

now the clock speed will be certainly different between GOLDEN COVE say 4GHz and GRACEMONT might be 2GHz, That's my assumption though. ....And the existing PSUs in the market will not have any conflict with such an arrangement. only time has to tell post release. Lets get ready for the drama of new inventions, if its successful we will be satisfied, but the price range is unacceptable, coz, every new technology must reduce the cost of the CHIP, MOORE is NOMORE :p
