Intel is slowly preparing for Rocket Lake architecture

The latest Compute Runtime (20.37.17906) has received support for Rocket Lake architecture, Intel’s first major release since Kaby Lake.

Intel Rocket Lake is expected to debut early next year under a name of the 11th Gen Core series. Motherboard makers have already prepared for this launch, as their Z490 board series is hardware PCIe 4.0 compatible. This is the key upgrade over 10th Gen Core Comet Lake-S.

The series will feature Intel’s Gen12 integrated graphics, which are Xe-based series offering up to 2 times the performance over Gen 9.5 desktop graphics.

The Compute Runtime also received more IDs for DG1 devices. This low-power discrete graphics solution will launch in a few variants (presumably 3GB and 6GB models). The DG1 series is designed for notebooks, expected to debut with just-announced Tiger Lake-U designs very soon.
