The long-awaited transition to more modern and advanced processing cores in the stationary market is closer than ever, but the quantity will be reduced compared to the current generation as a result.
The official launch of the 11th generation Core from Intel is approaching desktop systems, and may occur less than a year after the landing of the Comet Lake desktop models with a significant innovation in the form of the transition to ten physical processing cores and 20 logical cores in the senior Core i9 models , Which helped bridge even slightly the gap from the supply of AMD At the same price levels which is known to reach up to 16 physical processing cores and 32 logical processing cores starting in 2019.
We are still not sure that the big CES (digital) exhibition next month will serve as the stage for this official announcement, but we now have details on four models Processors The new generation that receives approvals from a number of leaks Twitter At the same time and clarify once again that competitors for theRYZEN 9 5950X or theRYZEN 9 5900X are not in the plans.
The top processor in the Rocket Lake generation will be theCore i9-11900K, unsurprisingly - with only eight physical processing cores and 16 logical processing cores, but those based on an improved Cypress Cove architecture after five years of seeing four generations all based on theSkylake And squeezed it to the end. This is a structure very similar to that of modern Willow Cove cores in processors Tiger lake The company's laptops, which have been converted backwards from 10 nm to 14 nm depending on the giant company's continuing difficulties in obtaining sufficient outputs from the lithography.
We already know that the Willow Cove cores provide a double-digit improvement over previous architecture of Intel, But it will still be interesting to see how 10 old-generation cores will equate to 8 new-generation performance in the real world, beyond synthetic tests that are not always able to reflect the whole picture.
Let's go back to theCore i9-11900K - This model will offer a base speed of 3.5GHz for all cores together and a maximum turbo speed of 4.8GHz for all cores or 5.3GHz for a single core under the TVB (Thermal Velocity Boost) technology that brings performance to the limit when The cooling system allows this, and technology support stands out as the main difference between this model andCore i7-11700K, which will also include eight physical cores and 16 logical cores with unlocked frequency multiplication, but with lower turbo frequencies that will reach up to 4.6 GHz for all cores and up to 5GHz for Core One is selected.
Laboratory-Core i5-11600K is designed to replace the modelCore The current i5-10600K with six physical processing cores and 12 logical cores, at a turbo frequency of up to 4.6GHz for all cores and up to 4.9GHz for a single core, while the processorCore The i5-11400 will of course be the replacement for theCore i5-10400 as the most popular hexagonal product (without sacrificing HyperThreading support), with a turbo frequency of up to 4.2GHz for all cores and up to 4.4GHz for a single core.
More details we know about the next desktop generation include compatibility with the current LGA1200 bracket, with partial compatibility with the new Z400 and Z500 generation boards that will accompany the launch, official PCI-Express 4.0 support at last, memory support DDR4 Faster by default, larger number of arteries PCI-Express Directly from the CPU - and of course graphical cores in the architectureXe The new ones that will provide a leap in capabilities compared to the outdated cores in previous generations.
It is likely to be estimated that the first launch wave of the generationRocket Lake Will include more than four models - we hope to hear more details about more products in the family soon, and also keep our fingers crossed that this introduction will become official as soon as possible.
