features of the platform and architecture




The Comet Lake-S desktop building has not yet officially hit the market and already has the Rocket Lake-S database on the table. Curious at least, but the fact is that it's a cold water pot for Intel claims, at least for the most part with their already 10nm processor.

Intel Rocket Lake-S brings important sports news


With Zen 3 in mind, Intel looks like it won't be able to introduce its new lithographic process in time, and in return, it will introduce Rocket Lake-S as a major update for Comet Lake-S. The new stadium is expected to end in 2020 and although ideas are important, Intel gaming platforms will continue, for one year, 14 nm ++ the company.

As is the case with the Cofi Lake-S, there will be new motherboards that, just as AMD did with the X570, will be offered the PCIe 4.0 mode when the retro compatibility in the 400 series is not guaranteed as we saw months ago.

The main features of the platform


Although not disclosed as such, Rocket Lake-S will have new engineering applied to its processors. Based on Intel's roadmap and the last leak we've seen in these systems, the facility is a high performance Tiger Lake focused on Willow Cove cores.

This means we will have rename the cache, new formulation of transistors (quite a long wave or a very large number of available cores) and hardware security enhancements. In addition, it represents all of Sunny Cove's achievements: advances in single Thread, new ISA and better disability.

This upgrade will also come from a number of PCIe lines, because although it will support version 4.0 and AMD (a year and a half later) it will be 20 lines available

directly to the CPU. This means being able to have a PCIe 4.0 X16 GPU and SSD under this bus and interacting directly with the processor, excluding PCH.

GPU Xe, Thunderbolt 4, USB 3.2 20G and SGX have been removed

Being a Tiger Lake cover structure, it will also have Xe to build its iGPU, possibly gen 12, which will include performance improvements and HDMI 2.0b, DisplayPort 1.4a and 3 DDI.

While it is also expected to see the development of Tiger Lake in terms of ports and buses, Rocket Lake-S will bring another important development as a platform: DMI 3.0 x8. This means doubling the bandwidth to 16 GT / s, something needed to manage all the other improvements that the platform will bring.

Beginning with Thunderbolt 4 based on USB4 and under PCIe 3.0, USB 3.2 20G and removal SGX with Intel Software Guard extensions. All of this will be understood by the PCIe 3.0 bus which is specified in different lines and under PCH, leaving free space for maximum bandwidth of all.

So also obviously (unconfirmed) users who want a CPU at 10 nm from the company will have to wait until 2021, because Rocket Lake-S will face a battle with Zen 3, something that seems unlikely to look at all the improvements Intel will include compared to all i -MD plans to install it.
