A Bilibili user has posted a thread over at the Bilibili forums that expose the purported specifications of three Intel 11th Generation Rocket Lake-S processors.
The chips are engineering samples, so final specifications will likely differ from those shown.
The ones which are leaked on Bilibili are Intel’s Rocket Lake Desktop CPUs which include the Core i9-11900, Core i7-11700K & Core i7-11700.
Intel Core i9-11900 8 Core Rocket Lake Desktop ES2 CPU
The Intel Core i9-11900 sample reported here has the ‘QVYE’ codename and is a BETA ES chip.
It comes equipped with an eight-core, 16-thread configuration and a 16MB L3 cache. The base clock is set at 1.8 GHz, while the single boost clock peaks at 4.5 GHz. The all-core boost on the Core i9-11900 appears to top out at 4 GHz.
The Core i9-11900 is a 65W processor, but that’s just the PL1 (power level 1) rating. The PL2 value is actually configured to 224W.
Core i7-11700K 8 Core Rocket Lake Desktop ES2 CPU
The Intel Core i7-11700K chip features the ‘QV1K’ codename.
The chip reportedly flaunts a 3.4 GHz base clock and a 4.8 GHz single base clock. The all-core boost clock is a bit lower at 4.3 GHz.
Coming as no surprise, the Core i7-11700K features a 125W PL1 and a 250W PL2 rating. As per the reports, there are samples that are running at up to 5.0 GHz boost clocks which are close to the 5.3 GHz boost that the Core i9-11900K will be offering.
Intel Core i7-11700 8 Core Rocket Lake Desktop ES1 CPU
Intel Core i7-11700 chip has the codename ‘QV1J’.
The Intel Core i7-11700 allegedly checks in with a 1.8 GHz base clock but it has a single boost clock that reaches 4.4 GHz. The all-core boost clock, however, is stuck at 3.8 GHz. Like the Core i9-11900, the Core i7-11700 also abides by the 65W PL1 and 224W PL2 restrictions.
The Intel Core i7and Core i9 lineups are directly positioned against the Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 9 lineups since both tiers will end up with 8 cores and 16 threads.
