Intel’s Rocket Lake-S Desktop CPU benchmark is now leaked on the internet; it shows the CPU performance with the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, which is based on a 7nm chip of Zen 3 core architecture. @TUM_APISAK revealed the recent benchmark about the chip running on an HP Omen OEM desktop PC, which now, clearly indicates that partners and OEMs have early access to the Rocket Lake. It is expected to launch in early 2021.
The HP OMEN 30L Desktop GT13-0xxx contains the HP 886C motherboard where the Rocket Lake CPU was tested. The motherboard is an HP exclusive motherboard, and it has an LGA 1200 socket that will support 11th generation Intel Core processors.
The Core i9-11900K power is going to power the Intel Rocket Lake CPU, featuring 8 cores and 16 threads. The SKU should be the best since the Rocket Lake maxes out at 8 cores. This chipset features 16MB of L3 cache, 4MB of L2 cache, and clock speeds of 3.40 GHz base and 5.00 GHz boost. It is reported in the Geekbench 5 data that the boost clock was able to function normally by running all cores at around 5.0 GHz clocks.
The Intel Rocket Lake CPU was able to score 1645 points in the single-core and the multi-core, it scored 9783 points. Whereas, the Ryzen 7 5800X scored 1661 in single-core and 10367 points in multi-core. We know, these are not Rocket Lake CPU’s final clock speeds. It is expected that the 11th gen family will be a bit faster than the Zen 3 based Vermeer family.
The Core i7-10700K, the Rocket Lake CPU is 9% faster in multi-threaded test and 21% faster in the single-core test than its predecessor. Meanwhile, compared to the Rocket Lake CPU, the Core i9-10900K is 17% slower in the single-core test but 12% faster because of the higher number of threads and cores.
Some Key Features of Intel Rocket Lake CPU:
- Increased Performance with new Cypress Cove core architecture
- Up to 8 cores and 16 threads (Double Digit IPC Gains Over Skylake)
- New Xe graphics architecture (Up To 50% higher Performance Than Gen9)
- Increased DDR4 3200 MHz Memory Support
- CPU PCIe 4.0 Lanes (Available on Z490 & Z590 Motherboards)
- Enhanced Display (Integrated HDMI 2.0b, DP1.4a, HBR3)
- Added x4 CPU PCIe Lanes = 20 Total CPU PCIe 4.0 Lanes
- Enhanced Media (12 bit AV1/HVEC, E2E compression)
- CPU Attached Storage or Intel Optane Memory
- New Overclocking Features and Capabilities
- USB Audio offload
- Integrated CNVi & Wireless-AX
- Integrated USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 (20G)
- 2.5Gb Ethernet Discrete LAN
The Rocket Lake-S desktop CPU is supposed to feature LGA 1200 socket support, which is going to make the debut with Comet Lake-S CPUs on the motherboard 400 series. The Intel Rocket Lake-S processor is going to launch with a 500-series motherboard. PCIe Gen 4.0 is a feature of the Z490 motherboard which can be enabled only with Rocket Lake-S CPUs.
