An insider from the Chiphell resource says that he could get at his disposal copies of three upcoming Intel processors of the Rocket Lake family. We are talking about engineering samples, whose frequency, as a rule, is limited to lower values compared to commercial versions, which will then go on sale. However, you can already familiarize yourself with the characteristics of these devices.
All devices are 8-core processors. At the same time, they support 16 instruction streams. The chips are manufactured using a 14-nanometer technological process.
An engineering sample of the Intel Core i9-11900K processor operates at a nominal 3.4 GHz frequency and reaches 4.8 GHz in Turbo mode. According to rumours, the commercial version will receive a base frequency of 3.5 GHz, and thanks to Thermal Velocity Boost technology, it will be able to accelerate to 5.3 GHz. The TDP is 125 W. According to the source, the engineering samples of the Core i9-11900 and Core i7-11700 processors operate at a nominal 1.8 GHz and a Turbo frequency of 4.4 GHz. Both chips have a TDP of 65 W. All devices are also said to support XMP memory profiles up to 4133 MHz.
Additionally, the source published the results of testing the Intel Core i7-11700 processor in the Cinebench R20 test. This engineering sample scored 526 points in the single-core test and 4672 points in the multi-core test.
The source claims these units were purchased for $ 430, $ 350 and $ 235 for the Core i9-11900K, Core i9-11900 and Core i7-11700 models. However, engineering samples are not for sale.
