The day that we have been waiting eagerly for months has come. Intel announced the 14 nm +++ Rocket Lake processor family that it has switched to the new architecture. The company, which also includes a small comparison, seems confident.
The blue team has finally switched to the new architecture after years. Announcing its new processor family at its CES 2021 event, the company is trying to keep up with the conditions in the market.
Intel made the Rocket Lake processor family official at CES 2021, according to a Spanish source. The new chips that will offer a 14% IPC increase are coming with Cypress Cove cores.
8/16 Intel processors 6% ahead
According to the company, which compared AMD’s 12/24 Ryzen 9 5900X with RTX 3080 in Metro Exodus with its high-end 8/16 processor, its solution is ahead by 6%. It is not known whether Intel will be able to position a chip in front of the Ryzen 9 5950X in the future.
The biggest innovation that the 11th generation Core processors will bring along with the performance is the PCIe 4.0 standard, which AMD has already managed to reduce to the entry segment. Rocket Lake chips, which will offer 20 PCIe 4.0 channels, are also enriched with new artificial intelligence capabilities.
The production process is sad in the title, as AMD is preparing to leave 7 nm, Intel will still continue to the 14 nm +++ node. On the other hand, Rocket Lake processors will come with LGA 1200 socket. We previously shared that the necessary patches will be released for the existing motherboards.
