Intel targets gaming with 11th Gen Intel Core’s overclocking rates
The 11th Gen Intel Core S-series desktop processors (code-named Rocket Lake-S) have been launched worldwide. The Intel Core i9-11900K is the flagship product, reaching speeds of up to 5.3GHz with Intel Thermal Velocity Boost.
The 11th Gen Intel Core S-series desktop processors are based on the Cypress Cove architecture which brings up to 19 per cent gen-over-gen instructions per cycle (IPC) improvement for the highest frequency cores to meet the performance expectations of gaming applications.
The 11th Gen Intel Core desktop processors introduce new overclocking tools and features, including real-time memory overclocking which enables changes to DDR4 frequency in real time, extending memory overclocking support for H570 and B560 chipsets allowing users to experience overclocking, Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) 2 and AVX-512 voltage guard band over-ride, and a new integrated memory controller with wider timings and Gear 1 and Gear 2 support.
The Intel Core i9-11900K boasts up to 50 per cent better integrated graphics performance with Intel UHD graphics featuring Intel Xe graphics architecture, said Intel.
It also adds Intel UHD graphics with Intel Xe graphics architecture for rich media and intelligent graphics, added Intel. This capability is designed for games and applications which depend on high-frequency cores to drive high frame rates and low latency.
The Intel Core i9-11900K has up to 5.3GHz, eight cores, 16 threads and 16Mbytes of Intel Smart Cache. It supports fast memory speeds with DDR4-3200 for gaming and seamless multi-tasking, added Intel.
Intel Deep Learning Boost and Vector Neural Network Instructions support accelerates artificial intelligence (AI) inference to improve the performance for deep learning workloads.
For AAA gaming to high-definition streaming, there are DDR4-3200MHz support, 20 PCIe 4.0 lanes, Intel Quick Sync Video, enhanced media (10bit AV1/12bit high-efficiency video coding decode and end-to-end compression), enhanced display (Integrated HDMI 2.0, HBR3), and discrete Thunderbolt 4 and Intel Wi-Fi 6E support.
