To say that Intel's 14nm process tech is long in the tooth is quite the understatement. The company first adopted that node for its Broadwell-based processors way back in September 2014, and has soldiered on with a number of refinements since then for its mainstream desktop processors and server products. While Intel has adopted 10nm for some of its Ice Lake-based laptop processors, the company still relies on 14nm for its desktop lineup. That will continue with the company's 11th generation Rocket Lake-S processors, which may be the last hurrah for 14nm on the desktop side.

The ink is barely dry on our review of Intel's brand new 10th generation Comet Lake-S based Core i9-10900K and Core i5-10600K processors, but we're already discovering evidence of their successors popping up in online benchmarks. We're talking of course about Intel's upcoming 11th generation Rocket Lake-S family. Rocket Lake-S processors are said to one of the final hurrah's for Intel's 14nm process tech for its mainstream desktop processors, and like its Comet Lake-S predecessors, will be available in up to 10-core configurations. The benchmark leak coming to us today is of a 6-core, 12-thread processor, which should put it squarely in Core i5 territory. This particular processor,... Read more...
Intel is presumably very close to launching its Comet Lake-S desktop processors, and with it will come a flood of new motherboard models based on the company's Z490 chipset. Interestingly, those upcoming boards may have a minor performance hiccup related to the onboard Ethernet controller, according to details outlined in a leaked slide. The slide points to Intel's "Foxville" Ethernet controllers. These consist of the I225-V (already launched) and I225-LM (announced), both of which are outlined on Intel's ARK website. These Ethernet controllers support speeds of up to 2.5 gigabits. However, the slide notes a variance in the inter-packet gap (IPG) compared to the IEEE 2.5 BASE-T standard.... Read more...
Intel's 10th generation Comet Lake-S desktop processors aren't even here yet, but there's already talk about its successor: Rocket Lake-S. Comet Lake is built on Intel's 14nm CPU architecture, and will reportedly be available in up to 10-core configurations. Rocket Lake-S will also be 14nm based. According to a new report reportedly based on information from internal Intel sources, Rocket Lake-S will launch late in 2020 alongside new 500-Series motherboards. According to a leaked slide, Rocket Lake-S will feature Willow Cove microarchitecture (also found in upcoming Tiger Lake processors), albeit while being built on the 14nm process node.  We don't know anything...
