Intel: Rocket Lake in production in early January and launch in March?

Expected for the first quarter of 2021 with an announcement at the CES, Intel Rocket Lake processors would finally only be available in March?

Intel Rocket Lake processors finally available in March?

This rumor has been around for many weeks, but the availability of Rocket Lake processors only in March would be increasingly likely. Indeed, OneRaichu (which has already leaked several information in relation to the blues) has just shared a document on the production of these chips.

Rocket Lake S prod As you can see, the first test chips (Engineering Sample 1) were produced at the end of last June, in the same order of time, the processor had appeared on Geekbench on July 24th. The ES2s followed 1.5 months later to arrive in August, then the QS ( Qualification Sample ) with the near-definite characteristics arrived in early December. As for the production of the commercial versions, this could only start during the 4th week of January. This schedule would lead us to availability for sale (RTS: Ready To Ship ) only from the 3rd week of March. Despite the fact that we can expect an announcement at the CES, with the new motherboards, in reality only the latter would be directly available for sale during the month of January.

A 11700K spotted on Geekbench

In addition, an i7-11700K,spotted by APISAK was tested on Geekbench, which gives us an idea of the final performance of the processor on this benchmark.

Rocket Lake S geekbench The processor, boosted to 5 Ghz, obtains a score of 1807 in mono core and 10673 in multi core, arriving at around a 5800X. The latter also clocked at 5 Ghz gets 1781 points in single-core and 11440 in multi-core. Very good results, but they need to be qualified. Indeed, the Rocket Lake ‘s score is “improved” thanks to the crypto score using theAVX512, now supported by the 11th generation of Intel processors. Despite this, performance remains very good and the 11900K, which will have a higher boost, has every chance of regaining the throne of the best CPU for single-core performance.
