Intel’s Upcoming Rocket Lake CPU 14nm Core i9-11900K Spotted
Last Updated on December 17, 2020 by
Intel officially announced its upcoming Core i9 Rocket Lake-S desktop CPU line-up, Centered on the Cypress Cove core design. Rocket Lake (RKL) is a planned design developed by Intel as a direct successor to the desktop CPUs and high-performance mobile devices of the 10th generation Comet Lake-S series.
In the first quarter of 2021, the RKL processor family will launch and is expected to share the same socket and motherboard compatibility as the current 10th Gen Comet Lake processors, offering an upgrade path even for those rocking the Core i9-10900K Comet lake CPU flagship. To know more details about specifications, good for gaming or not read till the end.
CPU Detailed Specification
Hopefully, this will be developed based on the last CPU architecture. It will be an advanced 14nm process in the Rocket Lake-S desktop platform. ‘Cypress Cove’ is going to be known as the new Rocket Lake-S Silicon or SoC. Rocket Lake-S will have support for PCIe Gen 4.0, with improved overclocking and double-digit percentage IPC advantages over the line-up of Comet Lake-S.
A 14nm back-port of the 10nm Sunny Cove cores used in the Ice Lake processors will be used in Intel’s Rocket Lake. Intel is targeting a raw instruction-per-clock uplift in the double-digit range for Rocket Lake processors.
The TUM APISAK, which appears to be the flagship of Intel’s Rocket Lake-S Desktop Processor. the Core i9-11900K has now found an alleged CPU entry in the Ashes of the Singularity Benchmark Database. This chip could also be an earlier Design Sample/ES, and therefore final clock speeds may vary.
The Intel Core i9-11900K CPU has 8 cores and 16 threads and a base clock speed of 3.50 GHz. The entry has recently appeared, which indicates that Intel’s partners might already be checking the CPU sample. This CPU also carries 16 MB of L3 cache and 4 MB of L2 cache.
On any other Rocket Lake Processor leakage, the manufacturer of MSI unintentionally exposed an 8-core/16-thread Intel Rocket Lake-S entry, as evident from the CPU-Z Screenshot specification shared in a recent press release.
The leaked CPU-Z screenshot indicates that this particular sample is 8-core and 16-thread and is clocked at 3.4 GHz base/4.3 GHz boost. And though the highest multiplier is 50, the turbo clock can also raise up to 5.0 GHz.
The CPU-Z screenshot also shows that the Rocket Lake-S engineering sample, which supports the AVX512F and SHA instructions that are absent from the latest 10th Comet Lake-S core series. The screenshot also shows that this 8-core Rocket Lake-S CPU has a max TDP of 125W. However, MSI has stepped back and deleted the press release from their website.
Is This Good For Gaming?
You’re going to get a bit more efficiency for the much more expensive Core i9 CPU, but not as much as you’d find in-game. It’s not as strong when it comes to heavy applications, but in terms of pure gaming, there’s just not much in it. This could be better.
Is Core i9 better than i7?
i7 vs. i9 – How are we going to compare? Generally speaking, i9s are actually faster than i7s—more cores, higher clocks, more caches. When it comes to Hyperthreading, the main differentiator is the functionality that generates two processing threads for each physical core.
Is the Intel Core i9 64 bit?
A 64-bit x86 CPU family of up to 18 Intel cores. The Core i9 was launched in 2017 and became the top model in the Core I series. Built for high-performance computing and gaming, the 3.3 GHz i9 processor can be overclocked to 4.5 GHz. Till then, stay connected with us for more updates.
