Intel has started manufacturing Ice Lake Xeons and is shipping Rocket Lake-S

Intel did not say anything really surprising, although it could be expected that if it announced the launch of Rocket Lake-S processors, then they will go on sale in less than two months. However, under the term “shipping” we can imagine various things, for example, the fact that the processors are slowly beginning to get into distribution. Currently, the warehouses are probably already being filled and the necessary supplies are being made for Rocket Lake-S to be launched on the market, and according to all signs, this will not happen until March.

Another report concerns the Ice Lake-SP generation Xeon Scalable processors, which are to offer a maximum of 36 Sunny Cove cores. It’s not Intel’s most advanced architecture available, but it’s still a milestone for the 10nm process, as Intel finally launches large 10nm x86 chips, while so far it only offers mobile processors and the latest generation only offers four physical cores and eight-core is still awaited . That is, even if the Ice Lake-SP does not have up to 36 cores in the end, it will still be an unusually large 10nm chips, after all, we know very well that they will still be monoliths.

We can also point to new processor test Core i9-11900K and Core i7-11700K, or 8C / 16T versions of Rocket Lake-S. The new Core i9 was to operate at up to 5.3 GHz, which should correspond to the maximum value given by the support of Thermal Velocity Boost and it is known that although in both cases it will be eight-core models, the Core i7 will have significantly lower beats, ie performance. In the test, it reached only 4.6 GHz.

The results in Geekbench 5 were 1892 and 10934 points for Core i9-11900K and 1551 and 8849 points for Core i7-11700K (single and multiple cores). Here, the new Core i9 completely matches the performance of the old ten-core Core i9-10900K and its single-core 1892 points also represent an unrivaled score, as the Ryzen 9 5950X also has about 200 points less. Of course, the multi-threaded performance of AMD processors will not be compromised simply because Intel does not offer better equipment than the 8C / 16T in the Rocket Lake-S, but in terms of comparison with the Ryzen 7 5800X, the Core i9-11900K is about 5 percent faster in total load.
