Intel reloads with the release of their 11th Gen Core Processors!

Intel’s answer to the growing processor needs of the market is the 11th Gen Rocket Lake-S Core Processors. The newest members of the Core S-series family aims to meet the needs of gamers this 2021.

Built with gamers in mind, the new 11th Gen Core S-series processors designed to provide as much performance as possible. Intel promises the following improvements over the 10th Generation:

  • Up to 19% gen-over-gen IPC performance improvement.
  • Up to 50% better integrated graphics performance with Intel UHD graphics featuring Intel Xe graphics architecture.3
  • Intel® Deep Learning Boost and Vector Neural Network Instructions support​ to accelerate artificial intelligence (AI) inference — vastly improving performance for deep learning workloads.
  • Enhanced overclocking tools and features for flexible overclocking and tuning performance and experience.

Overclocking and tuning receives a revamp which now features real-time memory overclocking support that changes DDR4 frequencies in real-time. This extends overclocking support for H570 and B560 chipsets allowing users to take advantage of Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) 2 and AVX-512 voltage guard band override, and an all new integrated
memory controller with wider timings and Gear 2 support (in addition to Gear 1 support).

Leading the pack is the Core i9-11900K boasting speeds of up to 5.3GHz with Intel’s Thermal Velocity Boost. We have eight cores, 16 threads, and 16 megabytes of Intel Smart Cache. This one is of course unlocked allowing users to take advantage of those new overclocking features. Then you have the rest of the i9, i7, and i5 families.
