Intel core i9 11900k latest info

CES 2021 brought Intel's major announcement about its upcoming Rocket LakeS processor. Although we do not yet have the complete specifications of the new CPUs, Intel has revealed a lot of information about them, including a comparison performance chart of Intel i911900K, AMD 5900X, and AMD 5000 series flagship gaming CPUs. In fact, Intel claims to have removed the 5900X from the coveted title of best gaming CPU. The current version of

is rumored to be mid-March 2021, but Intel has not yet confirmed or gave an idea for RRP. Let's take a look at what we know!

As can be seen from the picture above, Intel was released at CES 2021 on January 11, 2021. Intel claims to be slightly better than rival AMD’s flagship gaming CPU, the Ryzen 9 5900X. Obviously, the usual caveats apply to the need to wait for independent benchmarks before knowing whether we can trust any of the above. In addition, we only have a comparison performance of 1080p. At higher resolutions, AMD CPU’s Zen 3 architecture may perform better. On the other hand, the fact that supports Intel is that its CPUs have historically experienced significantly greater performance improvements through overclocking; the above figure only shows that both CPUs are running under factory settings. We must wait until after launch to test these theories ourselves. Of course, one of the important considerations will be the price of Intel CPUs compared to its competitors. In this regard, we still have no news from Intel.

It can be seen from the above table that the Boost clock speed of the i911900K matches its predecessor Intel Core i910900K / F, although we still don't know what the basic clock of the new CPU is. However, although the CPU clock speed/frequency may be the same (that is, the speed at which instructions are sent), the claimed 19% IPC increase means that newer Intel processors can send more instructions at any time, thereby improving performance.

The second thing to remember The thing is, the Intel Core i911900K actually has 2 cores less than its predecessor i910900K. This is mainly due to the fact that Intel "backported" the newer technology they developed in the 10 process node nm. New on the older node. The 14-nanometer computing node on which the CPU is based. Larger computing node size means less core space, and therefore less.

Intel may have taken this approach for a variety of reasons. First of all, the supply shortage of the 10nm process node means that notebook computers will give priority to this technology-notebook computers rely more on smaller processes to save space, which is obviously a rare commodity in notebook computer design. Secondly, at this stage, Intel seems to be trying to get a good enough yield (that is, too many defects per silicon area) in the smaller 10nm process manufacturing, which means that it is less profitable for them. Use 10nm until the efficiency reaches the technology improvement.

Fewer cores are less important for games, but more important for productivity and workstation tasks. Intel claims that other technological improvements should compensate for the removal of the two cores, but whether this is true remains to be seen.

In any case, it is not surprising that Intel will not soon challenge AMD's dominance in workstations and productivity.

The new Intel

CPU Rocket LakeS CPU is compatible with most 400 series chipsets, but not compatible with H410 and B460 chipsets.

For all Rocket LakeS chips, RAM support has been improved to accommodate AMD’s latest products-the jump from DDR42933 to DDR43200.

20-lane PCIe now supports Rocket LakeS processors. Of course, PCIe 4.0 connection is only applicable to motherboards that support this interface. The number of channels in the DMI connection has also increased from 4x to 8x, which should reduce the bottleneck of SSDs in RAID and so on. However, this only applies to B560 and H510 motherboards-500 and 400 series motherboards can only access 4 DMI channels.

This is our summary of the latest news about Intel Rocket LakeS Core i911900K CPU at CES 2021. Stay tuned for more articles about the biggest technology and game news at the event!
