MSI shows Rocket Lake-S CPU with 4.3 GHz clock speed

In the latest press release where MSI showcases its Intel 400-series motherboard supporting the Re-Size BAR feature, the company mistakenly published a CPU-Z screenshot featuring Rocket Lake-S CPU. Intel 11th Gen Core series, aka Rocket Lake-S, are not yet released.

The screenshot confirms that this particular engineering sample featuring 8-cores and 16-threads is clocked at 3.4/4.3 GHz at the time when the screenshot was taken. However, since the maximum multiplier is 50, the turbo clock should be 5.0 GHz.

A quick glance over the CPU-Z screenshot reveals that the Rocket Lake-S engineering sample supports AVX512F and SHA instructions, which the 10th Gen Core Comet Lake-S series do not support. The screenshot also confirms that the 8-core Rocket Lake-S CPU has a TDP of 125W.

Additionally, we have first confirmation that Rocket Lake CPUs will work on Intel 400-series motherboards. The manufacturer used its flagship MEG Z490 GOLDLIKE motherboard to demonstrate the working Re-Size BAR feature with AMD Radeon RX 6800 graphics card.

This is the first showcase of Intel Rocket Lake-S working alongside the AMD Radeon RX 6800 series.
