Intel Rocket Lake CPU Benchmark leaks with 5GHz boost clocks

Rocket Lake's new core architecture will still deliver high boost clocks

Intel Rocket Lake CPU Benchmark leaks with 5GHz boost clocks

Within the next year, Intel is due to release its Rocket Lake series of Core Desktop processors, offering users a new core architecture which focuses on single-threaded performance improvements. 

If recent rumours are to be believed, Rocket Lake will offer users fewer cores than today's Comet Lake processors, maxing out at eight cores and twelve threads. Intel hopes that this shift will be countered by single-threaded performance gains, allowing the company to deliver boosted performance across a wider variety of workloads than the company's prior product generations. 

On Geekbench, via Leakbench, benchmark results for an Intel Rocket Lake processor have appeared online, revealing a processor with boost clock speeds of 5GHz. When compared to results from Intel's i9-9900K, the company's latest eight-core flagship, this Rocket Lake sample delivers more single-threaded performance, delivers a 170 point score advantage. 

Based on Intel's leaked Rocket Lake results, Intel's multi-threaded performance isn't overly impressive, lagging behind i9-9900K results. These performance figures could be due to TDP restrictions on Intel's early CPU samples, restrictions to all-core clock speeds or other limitations. 

Strangely, Intel did not mention Rocket Lake during its Q2 2020 earnings call, even though the company's post-Rocket Lake Alder Lake architecture was mentioned. With Rocket Lake reportedly being based on Intel's ageing 14nm lithography, it is likely that Intel wanted to avoid adding more fuel to the fire regarding its process tech failings.

It's really sad to watch all of this. Like some retarded bird flying around and hiting windows with no clues where to go and what to do.Quote

That's promising, actually. Nothing has pushed single core performance since Skylake.

For giggles, here's my 8700k compared to the leak(5.0GHz all core, no throttling, 3300MHz CL14): https://browser.geekbench.com/v5/cpu...seline=3037923

What I find interesting is that it doesn't seem to run AES in parallel at all for some reason. Oh and I might have -200MHz AVX offset, I can't remember off the top of my head.Quote

Should be rumors and sixteen.

I don't think even Intel knows when will they release what CPU. At this point, they should just keep quiet until they have CPUs made and waiting to be shipped. Like Nvidia and AMD. No one knows what GPUs they will launch or when.Quote
