Technical details of Intel’s 11th generation Rocket Lake processors have been released. Intel says the Rocket Lake series is a significant improvement over the previous generation.
The company Intel at CES 2021 event which unveiled its eleventh generation of processors rocket Lake. Today, Intel released the technical details of these processors. Thanks to the benchmarks published by Intel, the technical information of these modern processors has been determined, but we will also get to know their price. We have also received some information about the Intel 5000 series chipsets and even the overclocking features of the new Intel processors.
At CES, we learned about some of the features of Rocket Lake processors, such as their support for up to 20 PCIe 4.0 processors and integrated graphics enhanced using the Xe architecture. Intel’s 11th generation processors use Cypress Cove cores and are about 19% more advanced in IPC performance than the previous generation. Intel says the processors support DDR4-3200 and Resizable BAR, details announced today. The new Intel processors are based on 14nm technology, which Intel says needed such technology to achieve high clock speeds.
11th generation Intel Rocket Lake processors
Intel will offer these processors in a variety of models from the Core i5 to the Core i9, and as Intel benchmarks show, its highest-end model is the Core i9-11900K. The upgraded integrated graphics card can handle most users, but obviously Intel has had the air of users who need more powerful graphics activities such as gaming or rendering. Intel says that the graphics performance of this processor compared to the previous generation (Core i9-10900K) in running Total War: Three Kingdoms is about 13%, in running Microsoft Flight Simulator about 14% and in the titles Gears 5 and Grid 2019 respectively 9 and It has an 8% upgrade.
Although the benchmark results of these processors are ambiguous, it should be noted that the performance enhancement of these games has been measured in conditions that run at 1080p resolution and High settings; So you can play some Full HD games well with Intel integrated graphics. When we compare the performance of this processor with a rival processor – AMD Ryzen 9 5900X – we see its better performance, which includes 10% better performance in Total War: Three Kingdoms and 11% better performance in Microsoft Flight Simulator with similar settings.
Of course, the biggest improvement in the performance of Intel’s 11th generation Rocket Lake processors is in the production of photo and video content and video editing in the Magix Vegas Pro workspace. Intel says this performance in the 11900K generation will be up to 88% better than the previous generation. With a 4K video editing workspace, the performance of this processor has increased by 35% compared to the rival Ryzen 9 5900X processor. Intel has even compared the performance of the Core i5-11600K processor with the Core i9-10600K, and says that its performance in 4K video editing has been up to 61% better than the previous generation Core i9 model.
By examining benchmarks, it is very difficult to understand the progress of a processor and to get the right answer until it can be examined in the real world. However, judging by the numbers released by Intel of Rocket Lake processors, we conclude that they perform far better than the previous generation, at least in photo and video editing.
Refreshed version of Intel 500 series chipset
Intel has also released details of a refreshed version of the 500 Series chipset that were introduced in early 2021. Some manufacturers have already unveiled motherboards based on the 500 Series chipset that can be compatible with 10th generation Intel Core processors. Intel says the chipset supports USB 3.2 Gen 2 × 2 with a transfer rate of 20 Gbps, which offers twice the connection speed of USB 3.2 Gen 2 × 1. The chipset also supports x8 DMI 3.0, which doubles the bandwidth between the chipset and the processor.
The H570 and B560 chipsets allow memory overclocking, and there are some new features for overclocking. Intel Extreme Tuning Utility has become more usable and improved in appearance, which can offer a new level of fan control. Intel says its 11th generation processors will come with a new memory controller that supports Gear 2. Here are some new features, such as Real-time Memory Frequency, that allow users to switch overclocked and non-overclocked frequencies live within Windows itself.
All of this shows that the new Intel processors have made significant progress in terms of performance; But as mentioned, we have to look at them in the real world as well.
