Rumors suggest that Intel will release its 11th Gen Core “Rocket Lake S” processors in the spring, so it’s no surprise that we are now hearing the company plans to begin mass production next month. The news comes from OneRaichu, who shared a time table revealing that these 14 nm CPUs will be built starting in January, with an RTS (ready to ship) date of mid-March to mid-April. An arrow opens up the possibility that Rocket Lake S processors will be available via retailers much earlier, however.

“Intel has begun producing engineering samples back in June, with a refined version released in August,” VideoCardz noted in its coverage. “In late November Intel has started manufacturing qualification samples, which are leaking all over the Internet by now. Those samples are sent to partners for qualification and to hardware evaluation.”

Intel’s 11th Gen Core Rocket Lake S processors will be the first desktop CPUs from the company to support PCIe 4.0. The chips are also said to feature an estimated IPC increase of around 10 percent, as well as a Gen12 iGPU leveraging the company’s newest Xe graphics architecture.
