Leaked Rocket Lake Reviews Hint That AMD Has Nothing To Worry About


Intel’s 11th Generation Rocket Lake-S processors aren’t in stores yet, but engineering and qualification samples of the chips are evidently going around the black market. Romanian news outlet Lab501 and a Chinese YouTuber have released early reviews of the Core i7-11700K and Core i9-11900K, respectively. Since these are not retail samples, we recommend caution when approaching the results.

By now, Rocket Lake-S shouldn’t require any introductions. The forthcoming chips are still on Intel’s 14nm process node but wield the new Cypress Cove cores, which Intel claims will bring IPC uplifts up to 19%. AMD’s Ryzen 5000 (codename Vermeer) chips have dethroned Intel as the best gaming processor on the market, and the Blue Team is keen to recover its title. On the graphics end, Rocket Lake-S comes equipped with Intel’s 12th Generation Xe LP graphics with a maximum configuration of up to 32 Execution Units (EUs).
