While Intel's Rocket Lake-S isn't expected to see availability until sometime in March, overclockers have already got their hands on a sample. VideoCardz noticed VWorld uploaded a video to Twitter that shows a Rocket Lake-S chip running at 6.9GHz using liquid nitrogen cooling. Using the extreme cooling, the unknown overclocker pushed the chip to 6923MHz. The memory was overclocked to a devilish 6666MHz to 1.83V.
The CPU has been overclocked using a Gigabyte motherboard, most likely the Z590 series. More importantly, the video reveals that the overclocking attempt was performed on the 11th Gen Core CPU. The CPU-Z screenshot lists all CPU instructions compatible with the new CPU. It has already been confirmed that Rocket Lake-S CPUs support AVX512F and SHA – the two instructions that are not available to Comet Lake-S CPUs. The screenshot also lists Cypress Cove L1 (48KB) and L2 (512KB) caches, confirming that this is indeed a Rocket Lake-S processor.
