Some more chip announcements from Intel. First up, the firm says its Rocket Lake-S desktop processors offer up to 19 percent higher IPC. Intel confirmed Rocket Lake-S will ship later this quarter. You can expect availability of these 11th Gen Core CPUs in March.
Intel also demonstrated next-generation desktop technology for gamers and enthusiasts coming to market in 11th Gen Intel® Core™ S-series desktop processors ("Rocket Lake-S"). Featuring 19% gen-over-gen instructions per cycle (IPC) improvement for the highest frequency cores and headlined by the Intel Core i9-11900K, these processors will bring even more performance to gamers and PC enthusiasts at launch in the first quarter of 2021.
As we already covered yesterday, Intel teased Alder Lake. This 10nm SoC will ship in the second half of 2021, it will be used for both the desktop and laptop markets.
Additionally, Intel demonstrated "Alder Lake," the next-generation processor that represents a significant breakthrough in x86 architecture and Intel's most power-scalable system-on-chip. Due in second half of 2021, Alder Lake will combine high-performance cores and high-efficiency cores into a single product. Alder Lake will also be Intel's first processor built on a new, enhanced version of 10nm SuperFin and will serve as the foundation for leadership desktop and mobile processors that deliver smarter, faster and more efficient real-world computing.
Lastly, Intel has some new 10nm low-end Pentium Silver and Celeron parts:
Use of the PC as an essential education tool has accelerated greatly worldwide over the past year. To meet the growing needs of students, Intel introduced new N-series Intel Pentium Silver and Celeron processors with an unmatched balance of performance, media and collaboration for education systems. The processors are designed on Intel's 10nm architecture, delivering up to 35% better overall application performance and up to 78% better graphics performance gen on gen. This enables smooth application performance and browsing while multitasking, plus advanced camera and connectivity features for an enriched video conferencing and viewing experience.
