Intel Rocket Lake-S goes beyond 6 GHz
A mysterious video was posted by VWorld earlier today showing an extreme overclocking attempt on a new Intel Rocket Lake-S processor. It is unclear who is performing the overclocking, nor it is known who is the author of the video.
The CPU has been overclocked using a Gigabyte motherboard, most likely the Z590 series. More importantly, the video reveals that the overclocking attempt was performed on the 11th Gen Core CPU. The CPU-Z screenshot lists all CPU instructions compatible with the new CPU. It has already been confirmed that Rocket Lake-S CPUs support AVX512F and SHA – the two instructions that are not available to Comet Lake-S CPUs. The screenshot also lists Cypress Cove L1 (48KB) and L2 (512KB) caches, confirming that this is indeed a Rocket Lake-S processor.
The 8-core processor has been overclocked to 6923 MHz according to one of the videos. The memory was also overclocked to 6666 Mhz at 1.83V.
Intel might have hired famous overclockers to promote its new 11th Gen Core series that is now expected to debut at CES 2021 next week. The new series is now expected to hit the shelves in March.
