Intel Rocket Lake-S Available March 15th?

According to an article posted on HKEPC, Intel’s Rocket Lake-S processors are reported to be available as soon as March 15th:

According to a report from China’s Mydriver on the 17th, Intel’s 11th generation Rocket Lake-S CPU will be available on March 15. Although the number of cores is less than that of the 10th generation, IPC performance has grown significantly. If you are willing to wait, you can consider going straight. The 12th-generation Alder Lake has 16 cores and an IPC performance improvement of 20%. It is expected to be released in September this year and officially launched in December.

It is understood that the new 12th-generation Alder Lake-S CPU will use an enhanced version of the 10nm ESF process, which reduces power consumption by 15% compared to the existing 10nm SuperFin, and uses the new big.LITTLE hybrid CPU architecture. The big core will use The new Golden Cove CPU core, the small core will use Atom’s Gracemont core, 8 large and 8 small provide up to 16 cores, 24 threads, performance must not be ignored.

Intel has reported ~19% IPC gains for Rocket Lake-S, looking to reclaim several performance crowns from AMD’s Zen 3 line that launched late last year. These chips will also use the 10nm SuperFin manufacturing process. Head on over to read more details.
