Intel’s Rocket Lake is looking red hot… for all the wrong reasons

Intel’s 14nm swansong runs hot and hungry.

The top Intel Rocket Lake CPU runs at a scorching 98 degrees C and chugs 250 watts. So says a post on Chiphell, which subtleties the top Core i9 11900K model running a full pressure test.

The chip was accounted for running at 4.8GHz all-center, which lines up with the best at present accessible data on what remains an unannounced, if impending, new processor. The remainder of the 14nm line before Intel at last changes its work area CPUs to 10nm.

The most recent break from motherboard creator MSI demonstrates the Core i9-11900K will run at 3.5GHz base clock, 5.1GHz Turbo, 5.2GHz Boost Max 3.0, and 5.3GHz Thermal Velocity Boost. That is present day CPUs for you. There’s nothing of the sort as a basic response to the subject of how quick they run.

Anyway, if 98 degrees and 250W sounds awful, the chip was allegedly running a full pressure test instead of genuine world applications. Intel’s current Comet Lake same, the Core i9 10900K, has been recorded at 93 degrees and 235W running a pressure test. Consequently, Rocket Lake playing with the 100 degree hindrance wouldn’t be completely phenomenal.

All things considered, the Core i7-10900K is a 10-center chip, where the impending 11900K will pack only eight processor centers. On the off chance that it turns out Rocket Lake runs hot and hungry fingers will be pointed at its sources as a 10nm design that has since been backported to 14nm silicon by virtue of Intel’s inability to get the 10nm going dependably.

With Intel openly expressing that it actually plans to slope creation of its 10nm Alder Lake CPUs in the second 50% of this current year, it might wind up not making a difference much whether Rocket Lake runs by any stretch of the imagination, not to mention hot. However, best case scenario, the backported Rocket Lake feels like a temporary CPU instead of the chip to turn Intel’s fortunes around.
