Intel 11th Gen Rocket Lake-S Desktop Processors have 14% More IPC and bring PCIe 4.

Published by


A Spanish website posted information online regarding Rocket Lake-S, the upcoming 11th Gen Core series. Intel has allegedly officially announced its 11th Gen Core Rocket Lake-S series during a CES 2021 press briefing.

The new line of processors promises an increase in the IPC or instructions per cycle of 14% compared to the last generation, thanks to using the new Intel Rocket Lake-S architecture with Cypress Cove cores. According to Intel itself, in games, these processors will outperform AMD. Specifically, they have shown the Metro Exodus with an Nvidia RTX 3080 together with an Intel i7 with 8 cores of this new generation against an AMD Ryzen 12 core processor with the same configuration of RAM and GPU.

PCI Express 4.0 will definitely appear on the Intel platform, with 20 PCIe 4.0 lanes from the CPU. Recall that these processors will use the LGA 1200 socket under a new Intel 500 series chipset line. The company has emphasized its capabilities for games, with specific optimizations for these types of applications. There will be three series of these processors, with Core i9 for the highest range, followed by Core i7 and Core i5. We will have to wait for the company to give more details to know all the news and models in this new range. The arrival of previously leaked models such as the Intel Core i9-11900K, with 8 cores and 16 threads, is expected. Except for surprise, they will be manufactured at 14 nanometers and will have Intel Xe graphics cores.
