Following Intel's official announcement ofCodenamed Rocket Lake, the 11th Gen Core desktop processor line for Q1 2021 has been announced, and there have been numerous insider reports on the web about the specs of the re-architected processors.

Technology insiders ITCooker and MebiuWsaid that the biggest since Skylake, the change in the architecture of Intel desktop computer systems will lead to a significant increase in gaming performance and the ability to overclock all cores of 8-core systems to 5 GHz.

Experts also say about implementation inPCIe 4.0 Rocket Lake desktop platforms. The Advanced Vector Extensions 512 instruction set avoids excessive heat and power consumption while dramatically improving processor performance. The size of the L1 cache will grow from 32KB to 48KB, and L2 cache from 256KB to 512KB.

Thus, despite the use atproduction of the 11th generation Intel 14nm processors, their performance will increase significantly. Intel Rocket Lake processors will fully support PCIe Gen 4.0 protocol and will be compatible with Intel Z490 platforms.

According to insiders, the price of Core i7 Rocket Lakewill be less than $ 400 to compete with the $ 449 AMD Ryzen 9 5800X. The Core i5 Rocket Lake series processors will retail between $ 250 and $ 300, slightly less than the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X.
