After the 10th Gen processors’ remarkable success, Intel is ready to unveil another masterpiece in early 2021. A few days ago, at its CES news conference, the legendary brand had announced an extensive range of four new processor families of processors, including 11th Gen Intel® Core™ S-series desktop processors later in 2021. The news has become a hot topic among gamers and smart PC users. They have not indicated the expected price or exact release date, but some specs and features may help users understand the flagship models’ expertise and performance.
But the most exciting part is that with the upcoming Core i9-11900K chipsets, Intel promises to provide faster speed and comprehensive multitasking performance with 8 cores and 16 threads, comparatively less than 10th gen processors like Core i9-10900K (which had 10 cores and 20 threads). The manufacturer has boosted the top-notch model, the Core i9-11900K, at the speed of 5.3GHz, with an eight-core, 16-thread chipset. It also supports DDR4 RAM with a frequency of 3200MHz and 20 PCIe 4.0 lanes for storage. Intel is even talking about the backward compatibility on the upcoming chipset. According to some official reports, the Core i9-11900K has resulted in an 18% improvement over the i9-10900K processor in single-core performance in the Geekbench 5 benchmarking platform; the upcoming Intel processor would be remarkably proved faster and efficient.
For sure, the upcoming Rocket Lake-S processors are still 14nm chips. The users may expect to see 10nm chips from Intel, but it must go unexpected because they have Intel’s Cypress Cove cores, so the new processors aren’t something like 10nm. These cores have improvements from Intel’s 10nm core designs, resulting in betterment faster processing speeds and Intel Xe integrated graphics, and much more.
As the 10nm chips are currently only designed for up to eight cores, it causes a drop in core count than Core i9-10900K. However, it ensures that the new 11th Gen models would deliver better service than the previous ones. Intel also promises a better. The manufacture has enlightened that it would process up to 19% higher instructions per cycle (IPS) and 50 percent better-integrated graphics with comparatively better AI performance.
The consumer market is flooded with IT products, especially computer components because the manufacturers keep on serving the latest developments at maximum speed and quality. Since the invention of the computer, it has developed by leaps and bounds. But for a few years, with the presentation of gaming technology, smart gaming PCs with multi-tasking performance have become the age requirement. The users want to build a complete setup for their gaming, education, social media, mining, designing and developing, and internet surfing at the same time. Also, they wish for future-proof technologies so that they may be able to upgrade without any limitation, so the leading brands as Intel and AMD are trying their best to provide every possible option for their users.
However, Intel is ready to grab the market again and prepared to hit another top-rank in the desktops’ consumer market with the Rocket Lake S chipsets that will give a tough time to its competitor. The users still have to wait to announce their price range and other unveiled features because rumors of premium cost are not enough to satisfy their queries. They may not have to wait for long, and some authentic news about price and release may be announced soon.
