Intel has just released its 10th-generation desktop-class Comet-S, but the next generation is not far off, codenamed Rocket Lake, and is seen for the first time today in the 3DMark database. This appearance is a 6 core 12 thread model, from udiMM memory specifications is obviously desktop version, detected the reference frequency 3.5GHz, up to 4.1GHz, plain, but after all, only engineering samples, considering the 14nm process mature and upgraded microarchitecture, frequency eventually beyond 10 generations of problem.
Yes, Rocket Lake is still a 14nm process, and it’s not until the next generation of Alder Lake, Intel desktop platform, will be 10nm, but it’s said to be changing interfaces again.
While the process remains the same, Rocket Lake will upgrade its microarchitecture to the same Willow Cove as the mobile platform Tiger Lake, and the nuclear segment is expected to be upgraded to the Xe architecture simultaneously, with the interface continuing with the current LGA1200.
Rocket Lake is said to be released at the end of this year and early next year (CES 2021 is a good time), meaning there isn’t much time left for the Comet Lake-S 10 generation.
