This is a busy month for CPU launches. AMD is unveiling its 3rd Gen EPYC 7003 "Milan" server processors today (you can catch the livestream with us), and at the end of the month, Intel's 11th Gen Core "Rocket Lake-S" CPUs will be cleared for lift-off. As it pertains to the latter, some newly leaked benchmarks indicate Intel's next-gen desktop CPUs are in good shape. Rocket Lake-S represents the final major iteration of Intel's 14-nanometer node. Be that as it may, Rocket Lake-S is a major architectural upgrade. It utilizes Intel's Cypress Cove cores, which is basically a 14nm back-port of Sunny Cove (10nm) used in the company's Ice Lake mobile processors. Intel is claiming a 19 percent IPC (instructions...

We are now just a few weeks away from Intel releasing its next-generation Rocket Lake-S CPUs to retail, which will do battle with AMD's Zen 3 lineup for desktop supremacy. In the lead-up to the retail launch, more leaked benchmarks have emerged, this time highlighting two SKUs, the upcoming Core i9-11900K and Core i7-11700K. Before we get to the two separate leaks, let us talk about Rocket Lake-S for a moment. Rocket Lake-S is set to be the last major release on Intel's 14-nanometer node. It is a major new architecture, though, based on Cypress Cove, which itself is a 14nm backport of Ice Lake's 10nm Sunny Cove cores. Rocket Lake-S will bring about some new features, like PCI Express 4.0 support,... Read more...
Back during CES 2021, Intel revealed some concrete details on its upcoming 11th generation Rocket Lake-S desktop family. Rocket Lake-S is the successor to Comet Lake-S, and will be the last 14nm product family from Intel built on the 14nm process node (which has long overstayed its welcome). At the time, the company provided details on the Core i9-11900K, which is the flagship of the Rocket Lake-S family. However, thanks to a leak from MSI, we now have full details for the first three members of the Rocket Lake-S family, which include the Core i9-11900K, Core i7-11700K, and the Core i5-11600K. We already knew that the Core i9-11900K features a base clock of 3.5GHz, but this... Read more...
The age-old battle between AMD and Intel became interesting again when the former launched its Zen architecture in 2017, followed by Zen+ in 2018 and especially Zen 3 earlier this year. For the most part, Zen 3 put AMD ahead of its rival, in terms of overall performance, but will Intel retake the lead when Rocket Lake-S arrives next year? Geekbench may provide a clue. Rocket Lake-S is the codename for Intel's 11th Gen Core desktop processors featuring Cypress Cove cores, due out early next year. Unless things change, it will be Intel's last major consumer architecture built on a 14-nanometer node. Hoping to go out with a bang, Intel claims Rocket Lake-S will deliver a double-digit percent IPC... Read more...
By my slightly exaggerated tally, there have been precisely one million leaks and rumors to date related to Rocket Lake-S, the codename for Intel's 11th Gen Core desktop processors due out next year. Well, make that one million and one, and counting. In a far corner of the web, a few updated engineering samples for Rocket Lake-S have arrived, including models with and without unlocked multipliers. Barring a change in plans, Rocket Lake-S will be the last major hurrah for Intel's 14-nanometer node. Interestingly, Intel previously confirmed that its next-gen desktop architecture will top out at 8 cores and 16 threads, whereas the current generation Comet Lake-S stack scales to 10 cores and 20 threads....
