Intel Teases 11th Gen Core 'Rocket Lake' Desktop CPU Specifications

Intel is hoping to steal a few of AMD’s Ryzen 5000 series thunder with a couple of early teasers about its personal next-gen CPU structure, which might be used for the 11th Gen Core CPU series, scheduled to launch in Q1 2021. Codenamed ‘Rocket Lake’, the 11th Gen Core i9, Core i7, Core i5 and Core i3 family might be a serious break from Intel’s previous a number of generations, all of which have been just iterative refreshes of the sixth Gen 14nm ‘Skylake’ structure. Intel has needed to cope with quite a few delays and disappointments in its efforts to develop smaller 10nm CPUs, which has resulted within the unprecedented longevity of 14nm, whereas AMD has been transport 7nm chips for over a yr now.

Rocket Lake may even be a 14nm product line, however the latest structure it would use is codenamed ‘Cypress Cove’. This is basically a 14nm backport of the extra fashionable 10nm ‘Sunny Cove’ core structure, which was the muse of last yr’s 10th Gen ‘Ice Lake’ laptop CPUs. Rocket Lake may even function an implementation of Intel’s model new Xe built-in graphics {hardware}, although it’s not clear whether or not this implies Intel will return to providing built-in graphics on all desktop CPUs.

Intel touts a “double-digit proportion IPC efficiency enchancment” in comparison with the 10th Gen, referring to directions per clock cycle as a measure of effectivity. Graphics energy can be stated to be 50 % greater in comparison with present choices. Absolute efficiency figures and benchmark outcomes are but to be disclosed. 

Top-end Rocket Lake models will function a most of eight cores with Hyper-Threading, whereas AMD at present provides as much as 16 cores in its mainstream lineup. Even Intel’s present 10th Gen Core i9-10900K has 10 cores. 

Other specs and platform-level adjustments embody help for as much as DDR4-3200 RAM, as much as 20 PCIe CPU lanes, extra versatile overclocking parameters, VNNI acceleration for deep studying functions, native USB 3.2×2 (20Gbps), and improved media encoder logic. New motherboards with Intel 500-series chipsets will ship together with 11th Gen Core desktop CPUs, however they need to be backward suitable with present 400-series motherboards as effectively.

AMD’s Ryzen 5000 series, together with the top-end 16-core Ryzen 5 5950X are set to go on sale globally on November 5. Based on the latest Zen Three structure, these CPUs promise a 19 % gen-on-gen IPC rise and as much as 26 % finer efficiency in games.
