Intel’s next-generation Core processor family, which offers a voluminous IPC increase by switching to new architecture, is starting to take its place on the shelves. The chips continued to use the existing LGA 1200 socket.
Rocket Lake processors, which we have been following from the blue team’s long-standing benchmark tests, are now available. The models brought with it an IPC increase.
Rising on Cypress Cove cores, the 11th generation Core processor family delivers a 19% IPC increase over the previous generation. The new IGPU with Xe architecture accompanying processors performs 50% better integrated graphics unit.
When we look at the key components in the execution section of Cypress Cove cores, there is a 25% improvement in the number of bandwidth and ports allocated.
A 33% increase in the AGU (Address Generation Unit), which saves the processor’s total processing capacity by calculating the addresses used by the processor in memory, as well as an increase in storage appears to have paved the way for new commandsets added.
Cypress Cove cores resulting from the backward adaptation of Sunny Cove to LGA 1200 socket-resumed processors contain significant improvements to the cache layout.
The L1 cache was upgraded from 32 KB per core to 48 KB with a 50% increase, while the L2 cache per kernel increased by 100% from 256 KB to 512 KB. Let’s add that the 16 MB L3 buffer is kept constant.
The Rocket Lake-leading Core i9-11900K is a 16MB cached processor with 8 cores and 16 monitors. The chip can go up to 5.3 GHz and supports DDR4-3200 MHz RAM, making multitasking smoother.
Intel Deep Learning Boost and Vector Neural Network Instructions support enable hardware acceleration in deep learning-oriented workloads, making the process more flexible thanks to new overclocking tools.
The processors updated with the AVX 2 command set have the AVX-512 voltage guard band override and the memory controller positioned for wider timings.
As a result of increased competition on the motherboard side as well as 11th generation processors, RAM can now be overclocked on motherboards with H570 and B560 chipsets.
Rocket Lake processors that come with 20 PCIe 4.0 channels will support Intel Quick Sync Video, while chips will accelerate 10-bit AV1/12-bit HEVC codecs. In the DMI interface, which was previously updated with PCIe 3.0, the number of channels has been increased from 4 to 8.
On the interface side, HDMI 2.0 and HBR 3 support are available, while Thunderbolt 4 and Wi-Fi 6e connectivity are available. Usb 3.2 Gen Finally, 2×2 (20 Gbps) ports allow data to be transferred faster.
