Intel's upcoming 11th generation Rocket Lake family is shaping up to a be formidable force in the desktop processor market. Early leaked benchmarks have shown that Intel has worked its magic to deliver stellar IPC gains, which allow for unmatched single-threaded performance. All of this is quite remarkable given that Rocket Lake is still built on the 14nm process node. However, if you're currently running an entry-level/mid-level Intel 400-Series motherboard, we've got some bad news for you. Intel has confirmed in a new support document that motherboards using H410 and B460 chipsets will not be compatible with Rocket Lake processors. Intel just launched the H410 and B460... 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 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 making one final major push on its 14-nanometer node on the desktop (we think just one more, anyway), and with it comes a claimed 19 percent jump in instructions per clock (IPC) performance. Time will tell if upcoming Rocket Lake-S CPUs can deliver on the promise. Until then, various unreleased SKUs continue to find their way benchmark databases. One of the latest leaks highlights the early performance of an 11th Gen Intel Core i5-11400 processor, paired with an MSI MPG Z490M Gaming Edge WiFi motherboard and 64GB of DDR4 memory (the RAM speed is not specified). Have a look... Source: Geekbench Consistent with past leaks, the listing recognizes the Core i5-11400 as having six cores and... Read more...
Intel is taking the fight to AMD with a bevy of new mobile and desktops CPUs, some of which it announced at CES 2021. During the event Intel also previewed one of its upcoming Rocket Lake-S processors, the 11th Gen Core i9-11900K, with 8 cores and 16 threads clocked at up to 5.3GHz. As we wait for it and other Rocket Lake-S CPUs to release to retail, pricing details have been leaked by a Belgian retailer. In case you missed our coverage, Intel doubled down on saying Rocket Lake-S will deliver a double-digit percentage gain in IPC (instructions per clock) performance over Comet Lake-S. Specifically, the CPU maker is promising a 19 percent jump in IPC performance, over the previous generation.... Read more...

Intel’s Rocket Lake desktop CPUs haven't even be officially unveiled, and yet people are still overclocking them somehow. According to a video leaked on Twitter, an extreme overclocker using liquid nitrogen managed to crank a Rocket Lake-S CPU to nearly 7GHz. Great Scott! Twitter user @PttpcWorld tagged many news outlets with two videos showcasing what appears to be a Rocket Lake-S CPU overclocked to 6923MHz. The RAM is also cranked to an absurdly fast 6666.66MHz at 1.83V. It is unknown who is doing the overclocking and where, but Rocket Lake-S could be impressive. Take a look at the video below and judge for yourself. 另外影片在這 pic.twitter.com/V49nXm7CwN — VWorld (@PttpcWorld) January... Read more...
We are eagerly anticipating all of the new PC hardware announcements that are around the bend, many of which will be shouted out at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) next week. Will Intel introduce its 11th Gen Core processor lineup (otherwise known as Rocket Lake-S)? Time will tell, but interestingly, what appears to be official press render of Gigabyte's upcoming Z590 Aorus Xtreme motherboard has popped up online. If you have not been following the CPU scene all that closely, Intel has already confirmed some details about its next-gen CPUs. According to Intel, its Rocket Lake-S chips will deliver a double-digit gain in IPC (instructions per clock) performance, while also introducing PCI Express... Read more...
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...
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....

AMD and Intel are sitting pretty on Zen 3 and Comet Lake, respectively, but neither architecture represents the end game for either company. More chips are on the horizon, both on the desktop and in mobile. As it pertains to upcoming processor launches, there is a bevy of leaks to digest, including an Intel Rocket Lake-S desktop CPU and several AMD Ryzen 5000H mobile processors. Starting with Rocket Lake-S, this is the architecture that will debut next year and the first from Intel to bring PCI Express 4.0 support to the desktop. Intel is claiming double-digit gains in instructions per clock (IPC) performance over Comet Lake. Incidentally, these next-gen CPUs will still be leveraging Intel's... Read more...
Who's ready for another round of 14-nanometer desktop CPUs from Intel? What if those CPUs have a refreshed Cypress Cove architecture with better IPC? Ah, now I see a few more hands. Get ready, because it seems that the 11th generation of Core processors is on track to launch in January at CES 2021. Fortunately, it doesn't look like the CPUs will be all that's new, since Intel has big plans for additional expandability like PCI Express 4.0 and Thunderbolt 4 on the table to go alongside Rocket Lake. Unfortunately those platforms might be waiting a little longer. According to the sleuths at WCCFTech, Intel's (virtual) CES 2021 keynote is scheduled for January 11, 2021. The company is expected to... Read more...
At this point, Intel has to be putting its final touches on its 11th Gen Core processors for the desktop, otherwise known as Rocket Lake-S. This will be the last major hurrah for Intel's 14-nanometer node (presumably), and according to Intel, it will deliver a double-digit IPC gain over Comet Lake-S. As we wait for the official launch, a mid-range SKU has poked its head into the SiSoftware SANDRA database, revealing some key specs. The unreleased part in question is the Core i5-11400. This will supplant the Core i5-10400, and like that CPU, it is shown within the SANDRA database as being a 6-core/12-thread processor. The listing also indicates a 2.6GHz base clock and 4.4GHz turbo clock, along... Read more...
It would appear Intel is right on track to launch Rocket Lake-S as scheduled next year. How so? We are seeing an uptick in leaks purporting to come from 11th Gen Core hardware. The newest one is a pair of benchmark entries at the Ashes of the Singularity database, showcasing an unannounced Core i9-11900K processor. Rocket Lake-S represents the last major run for Intel's 14-nanometer node on the desktop. Intel has stated it will deliver a double-digit IPC gain (compared to Comet Lake, presumably), while delivering features like PCI Express 4.0 support (up to 20 lanes), integrated USB 3.2 Gen2x2 (20Gbps) support, enhanced overclocking capabilities, and a few other bells and whistles. Yesterday... Read more...
Intel has not been shy about in letting the world know it plans to update its desktop CPU lineup with its 11th Gen Core processors, codenamed Rocket Lake-S, sometime next year. It is some of the specifics that are currently kept in a Top Secret folder within Intel's labs, like specific CPU models and other details. If you are feeling impatient, however, a new entry at Geekbench sheds some light on one of the SKUs. Before we get to that, let's recap what we know for sure, straight from the horse's mouth, so to speak. Rocket Lake-S will feature Cypress Cove cores with up to 8 cores and 16 threads, and a memory controller supporting DDR4 speeds of up to 3200MHz. Intel also has let it be known that... Read more...
Intel is making some bold claims about its upcoming Rocket Lake-S launch, which will lift off next year. Though it will be another iteration of Intel's 14-nanometer manufacturing node, the chip maker has put it out into the stratosphere that Rocket Lake-S will deliver a double-digit jump in IPC (instructions per clock) performance. Some leaked benchmarks back up the claim. Rocket Lake-S is a new CPU architecture (Cyprus Cove) that will fall under Intel's 11th Gen Core banner, supplanting Intel's 10th Gen Comet Lake processors. In addition to a sizable IPC gain, Rocket Lake-S will finally bring PCI Express 4.0 support to the desktop for Intel, by way of a new motherboard chipset, with up to 40... Read more...
While AMD is basking in the limelight with its upcoming Zen 3-based Ryzen 5000 family, Intel doesn't want to be left out of the discussion with its upcoming 11th generation Core processors. Intel previously stated that its Rocket Lake-S processors will debut during Q1 2021, and now the company is giving us some architectural details that will underpin this new family of desktop processors. At the heart of Rocket Lake-S will be new 14nm Cypress Cove CPU microarchitecture, which is in essence a back-port of 10nm Ice Lake microarchitecture. For those keeping score, this is the first major microarchitecture shift for Intel desktop processors since 14nm Skylake was introduced way... Read more...
Intel has some catching up to do, assuming AMD's recently announced Ryzen 5000 lineup lives up to the performance claims (and early benchmark results in Cinebench R20 suggest it will). How will Intel respond? With yet another iteration of its 14-nanometer manufacturing, of course. However, rumor has it Intel's upcoming Rocket Lake-S processors will bring some fast turbo clocks to the table. Raw clockspeed gains could be piece of the puzzle, in Intel's attempt to regain the performance crown, if it ends up losing it to AMD. And it likely will—Zen 3 aims to deliver a sizable IPC (instructions per clock) uplift over Zen 2, to the tune of 19 percent. And in gaming performance, AMD essentially... Read more...
Earlier this week, Intel confirmed that its Rocket Lake-S processors are coming during Q1 2021. Interestingly, Intel made the announcement just one day prior to AMD’s unveil of its Zen 3-based Ryzen 5000 processors. Coincidence? We think not. With that being said, 11th generation Rocket Lake-S engineering samples have been running around in the wild for the past few months. Now, a new example has been spotted by ITCooker, which alleges to have obtained benchmarks confirming PCIe 4.0 support with a Z490 motherboard. Now if you recall, Z490 motherboards launched earlier this year alongside 10th generation Comet Lake-S, and some even were labeled as PCIe 4.0-ready.... Read more...
