The 11th generation Intel Core processor, codenamed Rocket Lake-S, uses the new Cypress CPU architecture and 14nm manufacturing process, with a maximum of 8 cores and 16 threads across the series.
The most noticeable changes in the new architecture are a 19 percent improvement in IPC, the introduction of the Xe architecture core display to desktop platforms for the first time, support for more powerful AI features, and so on. This improvement in the more demanding gaming scenarios for single-core dual-core AI computing capability has also been the focus of development in the last two years, and this part has also been enhanced on the 11th generation Core, with support for deep learning acceleration and the AVX-512 VNNI extended instruction set. With support for up to 20 lanes, it is able to perfectly allocate the number of lanes between the graphics card and the SSD at a time when PCIe SSDs are becoming popular, which will be very helpful for overall performance, as well as an overall improvement to the platform. Memory support has been improved to dual-channel DDR4-3200 for faster memory read and write speeds.
The changes mentioned above are the result of the new architecture, and we will see what products are available in the 11th generation of Intel Core processors here. The i9 series has five models: i9-11900K, i9-11900KF, i9-11900, i9-11900F, and i9-11900T. (K stands for unlocked multiplier, F stands for no core graphics, KF stands for unlocked multiplier and no core graphics, no suffix stands for locked multiplier and core graphics, and T stands for ultra-low voltage version.)
The i7 series has five models: i7-11700K, i7-11700KF, i7-11700, i7-11700F, and i7-11700T; the i5 series has nine models: i5-11600K, i5-11600KF, i5-11600, i5-11600T, i5-11500, i5-11500T, i5-11400, i5-11400F, i5-11400
In the 11th generation of Intel Core i9 processors, this time also added a relatively unique technology – Adaptive Boost Technology (later referred to as ABT). In the heat and power supply can meet the premise, through the ABT technology, can further enhance the ability to improve the processor’s core, allowing the continued 3-8 core temperature up to 100 °C (TVB can only do 70 °C), but still within the official specification limits, an ABT, on the other hand, only supports the i9-11900K and i9-11900KF non-clocked models.
ABT has no effect on the i9-11900K’s single-core and dual-core RWD, which remain at a maximum of 5.3GHz with TVB enabled, but it does significantly boost the 4th to 8th cores. TVB up to 5.3GHz RWD for 1-2 cores, 5.1GHz RWD for 3-4 cores, 4.9GHz RWD for 5-6 cores, and 4.8GHz RWD for 7-8 cores is supported by the i9-11900K. ABT technology can support 1-2 cores at 5.3GHz (unaltered), 3-4 cores at 5.1GHz (unaltered), and 5-8 cores at 5.1GHz (boosted).
Furthermore, it will release the temperature threshold, which can cause the core temperature to rise to 100 degrees Celsius in order to obtain a stronger performance release. Users primarily benefit from a performance boost from 4.9GHz to 5.1GHz for 4-8 cores (red box part in the figure) when compared to the previous product. Theoretically, multi-core applications will outperform single-core applications.
