Intel hasn’t said its last word on AMD’s recent Ryzen 5000s. The father of Core processors is working hard to ensure that his next generation of desktop chips, les Rocket Lake-S, come out of its foundries as soon as possible. They will succeed the current Comet Lake-S (Core i3 / 5/7 / 9-10xxx).
During its video conference given on the occasion of CES 2021, Intel gave a figure to remember about the Rocket Lake-S: 19%. It is the increase of instructions per clock cycle (IPC, instructions per cycle) which would have been recorded between the current Core i9-10900K and the future Core i9-11900K, running at the same frequency. Rumor has it that there was a 10% delta, it looks like Intel has almost doubled the bet.
Intel is careful not to say how often this measurement was made. Even in the captions of his presentation, there is no trace of them and we have nevertheless peeled them with care. We will therefore have to be content with this information, which we will add, with caution, to all that the giant has already distilled at the end of last year.
10nm, still not for our desktops
It should also be noted that although they belong to the 11th generation of Core, future Rocket Lake-S will not be engraved in 10 nm. While current laptop processors – the Tiger Lake and, before them, the Ice Lake (10th gen Core for ultraportables) – are.
The founder of Santa Clara intends to reuse an umpteenth (and last?) Time the 14 nm, and push it again to its limits. At least, this process will have been worn down to the core and made a profit.
Intel will however use new cores, the Cypress Cove, on the circuit. There will be eight maximum (against ten today) and it is they who embody the future. These are again these new components which, with equal engraving finesse but with a different architecture, will put aside the antediluvian computing units used by Intel since the sixth generation Core, those of the Skylake.
Alder Lake, the stage still after, is already showing
Finally, Intel has made some demonstrations of early prototypes of Alder Lake chips, which embody ” the next big step forward in x86 processors »On laptops and, later, on desktop. The 12th generation Cores according to the dedicated nomenclature.
As a reminder, these chips should use the Foveros design process, which aims to stack the circuits on top of each other and, also, to combine large computing cores and smaller units for routines, as on type processors. ARM of our smartphones. Or the Apple Silicon chips. It will also be new hearts, the Golden Cove (the big ones) and Gracemont (the little ones), who will be at the helm.
It’s a hell of a change for Intel which, apart from Tiger Lake processors (Willow Cove units), again operates units that are still built on the sixth generation of Core.

These Alder Lake chips will use a brand new 10nm etching method, a further improved version of what Intel is now requesting for Tiger Lake (SuperFin). These little computing bombs should, according to Intel, shake up the current and historical bases of the PC somewhat, and allow it to experience new computing adventures. We ask to see before being convinced of it, too.
