Intel: Rocket Lake-S PCIe 4.0 M.2 11% Faster Than Ryzen

Ryan Shrout of Intel dropped some additional performance numbers for the upcoming Rocket lake-S platform, this time focusing on PCIe 4.0 performance. Intel has been behind AMD for years now in their support for PCIe 4.0, so it’s nice to see them finally join AMD with the Rocket Lake-S CPUs. Unfortunately, that also means a motherboard upgrade to get there. Intel is claiming an 11% gain over the AMD Ryzen 5950X in the PCMark10 Quick test with an i9-11900K. This should be an interesting battle once all performance numbers roll out in a few weeks.
