Gigabyte is tickled pink that one of its high-end motherboards was used to set an overclocking record with Intel's flagship Core i9-11900K processor based on Rocket Lake. Liquid nitrogen should take a bow as well, because it took frigid temperatures to allow Intel's flagship CPU to hit an insanely high 7,314MHz, which then broke a couple of benchmark records. The Core i9-11900K just recently made its retail debut, alongside the Core i7-11600K. Underneath the heat-spreader of the higher-end part is a monolithic, 8-core/16-thread design manufactured on Intel's 14nm++ process. At stock settings, it features a 3.5GHz base clock and up to a 5.3GHz turbo frequency, with a rated 125W TDP. That's all... Read more...
After disclosing some architecture details a few months back, and revealing the initial line-up of Rocket Lake-S based 11th Gen processors a few weeks ago, Intel is officially launching its latest family of mainstream desktop CPUs today, along with some new chipsets to enable all of their features in motherboard platforms. As most of you probably know by now, 11th Gen Intel Core processors based on Rocket Lake-S are manufactured using Intel’s mature 14nm process, but they feature the company’s latest microarchitecture and technology, which was backported from 10nm. We’ve got the flagship CPU in the new line-up on hand today, the Core i9-11900K, along with its more mainstream... Read more...
There is overclocking, and then there is extreme overclocking, the latter of which requires equally extreme cooling solutions. The go-to method of choice for record overclock attempts is liquid nitrogen, otherwise known as LN2. And it was LN2 that a pair of overclocking enthusiasts in India employed to bring an Intel Core i9-11900K processor all the way to 6,500MHz (or 6.5GHz). The 11th Gen Core i9-11900K is the flagship processor within Intel's brand-spanking-new Rocket Lake-S desktop lineup. It sports an 8-core/16-thread configuration with a 3.5GHz base clock and up to a 4.8GHz all-core and 5.3GHz single-core turbo frequency, both via Thermal Velocity Boost. Incidentally, the all-core frequency... Read more...
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...

Intel's 11th generation Rocket Lake-S processors are on deck to launch during Q1 2021, and excitement is building. Leading up to the official launch, Intel has been dropping hints about the new processor family's performance compared to AMD's lineup of Ryzen processors. Today, Intel gives us a very early preview of how the storage subsystem will fair against systems using AMD's Zen 3-based Ryzen 5000 processors. In this case, Intel is touting its alleged superior PCIe 4.0 performance with its upcoming flagship Core i9-11900K against AMD's flagship Ryzen 9 5950X. Intel paired its processor with an ASUS Z590 ROG Maximus XIII Hero motherboard, while the AMD processor was coupled with an ASUS X570... Read more...
Intel is getting ready to launch Rocket Lake to the retail space in just a few weeks (end of March), at which point we will finally have some concrete answers for the most burning questions—Rocket Lake pricing, performance, and all that jazz. As we wait, some last-minute leaks are trickling in, including a benchmark entry for the upcoming Core i5-11600K, and what appears to be official press renderings for Rocket Lake's funky retail packaging. Let's start with the benchmark leak, shall we? Geekbench is the popular hangout for unreleased processors, and that is where the Core i5-11600K has made an early appearance. According to the listing, it is a 6-core/12-thread chip with a 3.9GHz base... Read more...
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...
Intel officially announced its upcoming Rocket Lake-S family in its keynote during virtual CES 2021 last month, but those processors have been leaking onto the internet for the last several months. The leaks all seem to indicate that Intel is about to snatch the single-threaded performance crown back from AMD's potent Zen 3 processors in the Ryzen 5000 lineup. Sky-high clock speeds and XL-sized IPC combine for some pretty intense Geekbench scores hidden away in the benchmark's online database.  According to a pair of back-to-back runs, the top-end Core i9-11900K with its eight cores and maximum boost clock speed of 5.3 GHz broke 1,900 on the single-threaded benchmark in Geekbench 5. Back... 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...
Late last week, we brought you some scintillating performance numbers for Intel's upcoming Core i9-11900K Rocket Lake-S processor, which is rocking what should be the company's last hurrah for the 14nm process node on the desktop. Besides a shift to Cypress Cove CPU cores which bring a big IPC uplift, Rocket Lake-S processors also support PCIe 4.0 (which AMD first introduced with its Ryzen 3000 processors in 2019). While last week's benchmark showed the Core i9-11900K strutting its stuff in Geekbench 5.0, these latest performance figures are from PassMark. Not surprisingly, the single-threaded benchmarks are quite impressive, even beating the mighty AMD Ryzen 9 5900X. If you... Read more...
Intel is sticking with its 14-nanometer node for one more generation of desktops CPUs, that being its 11th Gen Core lineup based on Rocket Lake-S. However, the company is also claiming a big boost in IPC (instructions per clock) performance. As in, to the tune of 19 percent. If the latest leak is any indication, Rocket Lake-S is going to bring the boom. Despite being another iteration of 14nm, Rocket Lake-S is a major architecture upgrade over Comet Lake-S, with Cypress Cove cores underneath the hood. In addition to a enticing IPC gain, Rocket Lake-S also brings some feature upgrades to the table, like PCI Express 4.0 support (which will mostly benefit users who want to install an ultra-fast...

Intel is gearing up to introduce its first major new desktop architecture in a while, that being Rocket Lake-S. Even though its another round of 14-nanometer production, Intel is promising double digit IPC (instructions per clock) gains, as well as other goodies, such as PCI Express 4.0 support (a first for Intel on the desktop in the consumer sector). Ahead the new architecture's launch, an upcoming Core i9-11900K has been spotted racing along at 5.2GHz on all cores (overclocked). The 11th Gen Core i9-11900K is poised to be Intel's top Rocket Lake-S CPU when it arrives next year. Leaks and rumors peg it as having 8 cores and 16 threads. Incidentally, that is where Intel will cap the core and... Read more...
