Intel has revealed more information about its 11th-generationS-Series desktop processors, expected to arrive in Q1 next year. Unlike the 10th-generation chips with up to 10 cores, the new model will top out at 8 cores (as expected), and will be the last chips to use 14-nanometer tech via architecture dubbed Cypress Cove, combining scaled-up Ice Lake core and Tiger Lake graphics architecture.
With up to 8 cores rather than 10 on the 10th-gen Core i9-10900K, the chips should be more attractive to gamers that depend more on clock speeds. With the new architecture, the chips will supposedly boast “double digit” gains in IPC performance, Intel said. That in turn will allow for better generation-over-generation performance than we saw in the 10th-gen chips, for example. Intel also expects a 50 percent gain in GPU performance compared to the last gen, thanks to the newarchitecture.

As Intel already said, the next-gen chips will match AMD’s latest CPUs with the addition of PCIe 4.0, with up to 20 PCIe 4.0 lanes. That will allow for support of much faster SSDs and other peripherals. Intel is also boosting the memory control with support for memory speeds up to DDR4-3200.
Other new features will include support for new media controllers, including HEVC (VP9) at up to 4K60p 12-bit 4:4:4, and AV1 at 4K60 10-bit 4:2:0. System with the chips will also support DP1.4a, HDMI 2.0b, and HBR3, with up to three 4K60p or two 5K60p displays. Finally, Intel has added VNNI for improved AI performance.
Rocket Lake should allow Intel to at least keep up with AMD until its 10-nanometer chips finally arrive. We’ll have to wait for the chips to launch in Q1 of 2021 to learn the price and other details, however.
How Lenovo and Intel teamed up for the ThinkPad X1 Fold .
Years before we even heard whispers of a Galaxy Fold or a Z Flip, Jerry Paradise of Lenovo and Josh Newman from Intel had an idea. And one day, they put their minds together, along with their respective teams, to flush it out. What started out as an idea built out of pieces of cardboard morphed into, what they hope, is a revolutionary device: the world's first foldable PC.Years before we even heard whispers of a Galaxy Fold or a Z Flip, Jerry Paradise of Lenovo and Josh Newman from Intel had an idea.
