Complete technical specifications for Intel’s upcoming lineup of 11th Gen Core i7 and i9 “Rocket Lake-S” processors have made their way onto the web. The leaked information comes courtesy of Wccftech, whose sources shared a table confirming the base clocks, turbo frequencies, TDP, and other vital specs for the family’s high-performance SKUs, such as the 8C/16T Core i9-11900K, which will purportedly boast a single-core Turbo speed as high as 5.3 GHz. It also appears that all of the flagship Rocket Lake-S CPU’s cores can hit 4.8 GHz simultaneously.
“[…] the B-0 stepping is essentially the QS sample and while this revision is usually final, Intel may decide to polish these some more,” Wccftech noted in regard to the silicon revision. “In that case, the final variant could potentially be better than this – but not worse. The company’s flagship Rocket Lake CPU, the Core i9 11900K will be able to boost to an astounding 5.3GHz single-core and 4.8GHz all-core thanks to Intel’s incredibly mature 14nm process.”
“Combined with the IPC increase we are seeing, this should put an incredible amount of competitive pressure on AMD’s Zen 3 lineup. While we aren’t making any claims yet, I would not be surprised if Intel retakes the performance crown from AMD in 2021.”
The complete technical specifications for Intel’s upcoming lineup of 11th Gen Core i7 and i9 “Rocket Lake-S” processors may be found in the table below. Previous coverage suggested that these CPUs would not be available for purchase until March 30, but German retailer Mindfactory has reportedly been shipping the Core i7-11700K to at least a handful of lucky Intel fans (1, 2, 3) already.
