Intel Rocket Lake 8-core processor surfaces in geekbench

Eben though Comet Lake processors (current-generation Intel desktop processors) are hard to get in stores, the following generation already was spotted and benchmarked iN geekbenchG

Rocket Lake has been talked about a lot already, reportedly getting a new architecture but fabbed at at 14 nanometers. An 8-core model from the 11th generation Core processors has surfaced in the Geekbench database.

The chip has eight cores and sixteen threads, a base clock speed of 3.2 GHz and the highest recorded clock was 4.3 GHz (engineering sample) OIntersting is a 512 KB of L2 cache per core, which is equal to the Sunny Cove architecture. You can see 32 execution units present, that's your Gen 12 IGP and expected to be based on Intel's Xe graphics architecture. It runs max 1,150 MHz during the openCL benchmark. A score of ~6,200 points was achieved, which puts the Rocket Lake chip just below, for example, Nvidia's GeForce 940MX (~6,500 points) and AMD's integrated Vega 6 (~6,900).

Rocket Lake would be the last processor series compatible with the current 400 series chipset motherboards, LGA1200 processor. It would support PCI Express 4.0 support.
