Intel, here are the specs of some upcoming Rocket Lake-S CPUs
A Bilibili user (as pointed out by @ harukaze5719) posted a forum thread in which he talked about the alleged specifications of three 11th generation Intel Rocket Lake-S processors. The chips are engineering samples that the user claims to have bought on the black market, so the final specs are likely to be different from those shown.

The first processor corresponds to the Core i9-11900 and is equipped with a eight cores and sixteen threads and a 16MB L3 cache. The base clock is set at 1.8GHz, while the single-core boost clock reaches 4.5GHz. The all-core boost seems to reach the maximum at 4GHz. This is a 65W processor, but this is only the PL1 rating. The PL2 value is actually configured to 224W.

Both the Core i7-11700K and the Core i7-11700 share the same core / thread count specifications as the Core i9-11900. In the case of the Core i7-11700K, the chip has a base frequency of 3.4GHz and a single-core base clock of 4.8GHz. The all-core boost clock is slightly lower and is 4.3GHz. Unsurprisingly, the Core i7-11700K is equipped with 125W PL1 and 250W PL2 power.

Finally, the Core i7-11700 presumably has a base clock of 1.8GHz, but possesses a single-core boost clock capable of reaching 4.4GHz. The all-core boost clock, however, is locked at 3.8 GHz. Like the Core i9-11900, the Core i7-11700 also complies with the 65W PL1 and 224W PL2 restrictions.

According to user Bilibili, the default XMP frequency for Rocket Lake-S is DDR4-3200. However, it was possible to pair processors with DDR4-4133 memory on an unspecified B560 motherboard. This is an interesting finding as it seems to indicate that Intel may have enabled memory overclocking on the B560 chipset. If that were true, it would be a major change as the manufacturer's entry level chipsets are historically limited to the officially supported memory frequency for that specific processor generation. For example, existing B460, H470 and H410 motherboards are limited to DDR4-2933 memory modules, which are the official specification for Comet Lake-S processors.

Rocket Lake-S is known to use Cypress cores Cove, which Intel claims will offer double-digit improvements in instructions executed per clock cycle (IPC). Graphically, a previous leak talked about four potential configurations for 11th generation chips. The Rocket Lake-S models will offer Xe graphics with 32EU or 24EU, while the Comet Lake-S Refresh models will be equipped with UHD Graphics 630 and 610 with 24EU and 12EU each, respectively. The new Intel CPUs should arrive on the market during the first quarter of next year, while the line up could be presented at CES 2021.

Intel Core i7-10700K with a base clock of 3.8GHz, socket LGA1200 and 125W of TDP is available on Amazon at a reduced price!
