The famous leakers TUM_APISAK and Rogame found a new processor from Intel in the test listings of 3DMark. The chip, which is expected to be part of the 11th generation Rocket Lake-S desktop CPUs, featured 6 cores and 12 threads with a base clock of 3.5GHz and clock boost of 4.1GHz.
Details on other processor specifications have not been revealed, but it is known that we will have a new architecture for the CPU and GPU. Still, the Rocket Lake-S line must maintain the 14nm process, which is already in its fourth generation. With years of process and refinement, it is strange to see such low clocks in leaked tests, especially when considering that the recently launched 10th generation Comet Lake can reach up to 5.3GHz with the Core i9 10900K.
The results in graphics are also not exciting, with the 11th generation being only 4% faster in GPU when compared to Core i5 10400, which still wins by 8% in CPU. However, it is worth remembering that the chip is in the optimization phase, and we will undoubtedly see considerably superior performance close to launch.

Intel Rocket Lake-S processors should bring LGA1200 socket, being compatible with 400 series motherboards. In addition, we will finally see support for the PCI-e 4.0 interface, as well as higher speeds of DDR4 RAM, the first GPUs with Xe architecture and the new Thunderbolt 4 protocol, among other news.
Intel has been facing stiff competition from AMD, and could have its leadership seriously shaken in the coming months. To give you an idea, Xiaomi has already confirmed that the new generation of ultrabooks in the RedmiBook line will make use of Ryzen 4000 processors. Even Nvidia, AMD’s great rival in the GPU field, has chosen to replace Intel’s Xeon chips with processors. EPYC in its new DGX A100 AI system.
