Some new rumors about the Core i9-11900K, the flagship of Intel's upcoming Rocket Lake-S lineup. With Rocket Lake-S, the chip giant is taking its 14nm node for one final spin on the desktop. The Core i9-11900K is rumored to be an eight-core, sixteen-threaded part with a 125W TDP. Allegedly, it has a 3.5GHz base clock and a Boost that goes all the way up to 5.3GHz.
According to Twitter user davidbepo, the flagship Rocket Lake-S CPU has a single-core Thermal Velocity Boost frequency of 5.3 GHz. The leaker also reveals the CPU has an all-core TVB frequency of 4.8 GHz. While the single-core frequency is identical to the 10th Gen Core flagship Core i9-10900K, the all-core speed is actually lower by 100 MHz.

The CPU allegedly has a maximum PL1 (power level 1) of 125W and PL2 of 250W. Those as well appear to be identical to the 10-core Comet Lake-S flagship. The PL1/PL2 data for the rest of the Rocket Lake-S lineup remains unknown.
Rocket Lake-S uses the Cypress Cove design, which is the first non-Skylake architecture since 2015. It also has PCI Express 4.0 support and Xe-based integrated graphics. Rocket Lake-S should be compatible with current LGA1200 motherboards.
