Intel’s 11th Gen Core processors, code named Rocket Lake-S, will reportedly be released on March 15. The rumored date stems from an article published by Hong Kong hardware site HKEPC, which also claims to know the release dates for Intel’s 12th Gen “Alder Lake-S” processors and AMD’s Zen 4 processors. Those will supposedly be released in September and sometime in 2022, respectively.

“If you are willing to wait, you can consider going straight to the 12th generation Alder Lake, up to 16 cores […] performance is increased by 20%, and it is expected to be released in September this year and officially listed in December,” HKEPC reported.

“It is understood that the new 12th-generation Alder Lake-S CPU will use an enhanced version of the 10nm ESF process, which reduces power consumption by 15% compared to the existing 10nm SuperFin, and uses the new big.LITTLE hybrid CPU architecture. The big core will use The new Golden Cove CPU core, the small core will use Atom’s Gracemont core, 8 large and 8 small provide up to 16 cores, 24 threads, performance must not be ignored.”

AMD’s Zen 4 processors, which were reportedly slightly delayed due to TSMC’s lack of 5 nm capacity, are rumored to boast a nearly 30 percent IPC improvement. Intel’s 10th Gen Core “Rocket Lake-S” processors will feature a 19 percent gen-over-gen instructions per cycle (IPC) improvement.
