Intel has officially announced the 11th generation core desktop processors. But, still, this silicon chip is still based on the old 14nm processor architecture. Although the new chipset comes with new CPU architecture and integrated GPU in it. Intel first confirmed the 11th generation desktop processors in October 2020 and teased them at CES in January.
The 11th generation desktop processor, Rocket Lake S, will debut on 30th March 2021. The lineup included Core i9, Core i5 and Core i3 processors. They will be available as standalone CPU chips or as part of a whole desktop computer.
Intel said that this new desktop processor will give up to a 19 per cent IPC boost over its previous generation processors and a 50 per cent better graphics performance. These new Rocket Lake chips are about a lowered core count. Core i9-11900K processor now will have eight cores and 16 threads with are lower in number but still, Intel claims it will give 14 per cent better performance compares to the previous 10th generation processor. The CPU has a base clock up to 3.5 Ghz, and a turbo clock of 4.7 GHz and a maximum single-core boost clock of 5.2 GHz.
Let us have a look at the pricing of rocket Lake-S CPU. Core i9-11900K has a price ranging from $513 - $539 while Core i7-11700K has a price ranging from $374-$399. If we talk about Core i5-11600K, it has a price ranging from $237-$262 while Core i5-11400K has a price ranging from $157-$182. These 11th generations are available in the global market.
