Intel made its new 11th generation desktop processors official. They are part of the Intel Rocket Lake-S family and promise better specs than their predecessors. Intel’s new component architecture has improved in a number of ways. One of them is the improvement of up to 19% in IPC performance compared to the previous generation. The measurements were made in January this year.
Improvements in this generation include:
- Up to 19% gen-over-gen IPC performance improvement.
- Up to 50% better-integrated graphics performance with Intel UHD graphics featuring Intel Xe graphics architecture.
- Intel Deep Learning Boost and Vector Neural Network Instructions support accelerating artificial intelligence (AI) inference — vastly improving performance for deep learning workloads.
- Enhanced overclocking tools and features for flexible overclocking and tuning performance and experience.
Models of Intel Rocket Lake-S 11th-Gen Processors
According to Intel, the new models of its components were designed for both games and content creators. An example is the improvements in features for overclocking, in order to allow more agility in the gains when performing the procedure by the Intel Extreme Tuning utility.
The models that make up the family range from the Intel Core i5-11400T to the Core i9-11900K. More specifically on this top of the line, it has a base clock speed that reaches 3.5 GHz, with a peak through the Intel Thermal Velocity Boost Technology Single which reaches up to 5.3 GHz.
The component comes with eight cores and 16 threads, in addition to 16 MB of cache and TDP of 125W. The flagship of Intel still supports DDR4 memory (3200 and 2933) and offers integrated Intel UHD Graphics.
