Rocket Lake-S to be available on March

Intel would launch its 11th Gen Core series codenamed ‘Rocket Lake-S’ on March 15th. Intel has only so far confirmed that the series will be introduced in the first quarter, but the availability was not expected till early April.

Alder Lake-S on 10n Enhanced SuperFin in December

HKEPC also confirmed that the announcement of the 12h Gen Core series would happen in September, as reported earlier. However, the actual launch would not happen till December.

Additionally, the site confirms that the Alder Lake-S series will be based on 10nm Enhanced SuperFin, instead of ‘just’ 10nm SuperFin architecture. This would mean that the CPU would be more power-efficient than the Tiger Lake series, based on the less-advanced node. It is worth noting that Intel already confirmed that Alder Lake will feature 10nm ESF architecture, back in January.

Golden Cove 20% IPC gain over Willow Cove

The 12th Gen core series are based on Intel Hybrid Technology, which means that the CPU will utilize high-efficiency (small) and high-performance (big) cores, similarly to ARM’s big.LITTLE architecture. According to the report, the big cores (Golden Cove) would offer a 20% IPC gain over Willow Cove (available in Tiger Lake series).
