Intel Rocket Lake-S Pricing

Intel’s entire Rocket Lake-S lineup has been posted by Belgian retailer 2Compute. The SKUs that were listed by the retailer include the high-end Rocket Lake-S and entry-level Comet Lake-Refresh processors, both being part of the 11th Gen core series.

According to the listing from the retailer, the flagship Rocket Lake-S CPU, the Core i9-11900K which is an 8-core and 16-thread processor will carry a 499.70 EUR price tag without VAT and around 605 EUR with 21% VAT included. This means that the 10900K Comet Lake-S processor is 9.8% more expensive than the upcoming Rocket Lake flagship.

The pricing from other retailers has also been leaked, a Twitter user @harukaze5719 included in a short roundup. According to the data that he posted, some retailers are listing the new CPU at a lower price than the current Comet Lake-S series, whereas other retailers tend to list them at a higher price. So despite the fact that multiple retailers already listed the new CPUs, it is not possible to determine which listed pricing is closer to Intel’s MSRP, which hasn’t been announced yet.

Intel Rocket Lake-S has been showcased by Intel at CES 2021. The company has declared that its flagship Core i9-11900K CPU will be faster than AMD’s 12-core Ryzen 9 5900X. The series is set to officially debut by the end of this quarter, however, Intel has not revealed a final launch date for the new processors.

The new CPUs feature up to 8-cores clocked up to 5.3 GHz in Thermal Velocity Boost. Thus, the new series designed for just-released Intel 500 series motherboards, will offer fewer cores than the current lineup. However, thanks to the new architecture (Cypress Cove), the instructions per cycle (IPC) gains over its predecessor are expected to be ‘double-digit’.

Intel Rocket Lake-S processors will have 20 PCIe Gen4 lanes for discrete GPU and fast NVMe storage. Existing 400 series LGA1200 motherboards will support the new CPUs, but some features may require a BIOS update though.
