Intel Rocket Lake S spotted with 16 threads and 4.3 GHz boost clock

Intel 11th Gen Core processor has been spotted in the 3DMark database.

Intel’s Rocket has 8 “boosters”

The processor has 8 cores and 16 threads, meaning, we might be looking at the top tier model from the lineup. The rumors were quite clear, not to expect a 10-core or anything with more cores from the upcoming platform.

Intel Rocket Lake is the first new architecture not based on Skylake. This is an important launch for Intel, as it brings much-needed change to the CPU market. It appears that Rocket Lake will still be based on a 14nm fabrication processor though.

The Rocket Lake-S series will be supported by already launched Intel 400-series motherboards. Manufacturers struggled to tell us that their motherboards will support PCI-Express Gen 4.0 despite the fact that Comet Lake does not support it. What they meant to tell is that their motherboards are Rocket Lake-S ready, because new series will support the newer generation interface.

Intel Rocket Lake is also set to feature Xe Graphics for the first time in the desktop processor space. The company is also set to launch its Tiger Lake series for mobile devices later this year.
