Intel unveiled its 11th generation laptop processor line up earlier this year. The company added a new Intel logo and made other changes. According to the latest news, today, Intel has shared some details about its upcoming processors that are set to arrive in 2021. Intel has revealed some details about the 11th generation Rocket Lake line of CPUs for desktop computers.
As per the information shared by Intel, the Rocket Lake line of desktop computer processors will focus heavily on gamers. This means the overall performance of these upcoming CPUs will be great. This approach makes good sense considering AMD’s impressive gains in the processor market with its Ryzen processors.
The 11th generation Rocket Lake desktop CPUs from Intel will use a brand new Cypress Cove architecture for improved efficiency and performance. It should be noted that Intel is still stuck on the 14 nm process with these upcoming chips but however, it is backporting some features from the 10 nm Sunny Cove design.
AMD, on the other hand, has been shipping 7 nm processors for almost a year which means Intel is lagging behind by a lot. It seems to make an effort worth mention, Intel has to improve in double digits.
Just a month back, Intel announced 11th generation Tiger Lake mobile processors. This time, the company confirmed that like 11th generation Tiger Lake mobile processors, the 11th generation Rocket Lake desktop processors will also feature Intel’s new Xe graphics architecture. Intel claims that Xe graphics architecture will result in better Intel UHD graphics on the 11th generation CPUs.
Apart from this, both the new processors: the 11th generation Tiger Lake mobile processor and the 11th generation Rocket Lake desktop processor will come with PCIe 4.0, VP9 codec, DP 1.4a, HDMI 2.0b support.
