Twitter leaker momomo_us reports Intel is preparing a new video game bundle. According to the leak, the chip giant will bundle Hitman 3 with a ton of processors from the 10th Gen Core and 11th Gen Core families. The offer will apply to both laptop and desktop processors.

The first 11th Gen Core "Rocket Lake-S" desktop processors are expected to be introduced on March 15, 2021. While Rocket Lake-S is still made on a refined version of Intel's 14nm process, the chips will pack some major changes.

The new Cypress Cove cores promise a big, and much needed, increase in IPC and the integration of Xe-based graphics should result in a pleasant boost in integrated graphics performance. Compared with Willow Cove, which is used for the Tiger Lake laptop processors, Cypress Cove promises 20 percent higher IPC.

Rocket Lake-S will be the final 14nm desktop CPU from Intel -- and it will also be the last part to use the LGA1200 socket. Towards the end of this year, the blue team is expected to roll out Alder Lake-S. This processor series will be made on a 10nm node, it will feature a hybrid core architecture with small energy-efficient cores and big high-performance cores. Main new features include PCI Express 5.0 and DDR5 support. Based on the latest rumors, I wouldn't expect availability before December.

Is Hitman 3 any good

IO Interactive published Hitman 3 on January 20, 2021. The game is available for a variety of platforms and generally received positive reviews. Reviewers applaud the stealth third-person game for its impressive level design, the high degree of creativity, and a fun world with a great element of exploration.
