Lakefield uses what Intel calls its Hybrid Technology, combining big and small cores (Intel actually calls it Big-Bigger), just like ARM processors have been doing for ages ... It would seem as though higher end SKUs such as the Core i7 and Core i9 would have 16 cores, with eight big cores and eight little ones, while lower end SKUs would just have big cores ... the big cores included in the new chips will be Golden Cove, while the small cores will be Gracemont, which is the successor to Tremont.
