Despite the fact that Intel Comet Lake processors came out only in 2020, already at the end of this or at the beginning of next year, they will be replaced by chips codenamed Rocket Lake. The test results of the integrated graphics core of one of the next-generation processors were found today in the GeekBench 5 database.
The future processor, whose name is still unknown, has eight cores operating in 16-stream mode. The base frequency of the tested chip was 3.19 GHz and was able to rise in turbo mode to 4.28 GHz. According to rumors, Rocket Lake will be the last Intel processor family built on the 14-nm process technology. It is not known exactly which microarchitecture will underlie these chips, but, according to data from GeekBench, it could be Sunny Cove. At least it is clear that each core will receive 512 KB of L2 cache and 2 MB of L3 cache. However, it may also turn out that the processor uses a more advanced Willow Cove microarchitecture with a slightly modified cache subsystem. In addition, it is not yet clear whether future chips will exceed ten cores.
An interesting feature of Rocket Lake is that on the same substrate with the actual processor, made according to the 14-nm process technology, the second 10-nm Gen 12 Xe graphics chip with 32 executive units and a frequency of 1.15 GHz will be located.
The GeekBench database found the result of the OpenCL graphics test. The closest analogue of the tested Rocket Lake processor in terms of the integrated GPU in the current Intel lineup is Core i5-1035G1. It has Gen11 graphics with 32 executive units and scores 5 5899 points in GeekBench, against 6266 in the upcoming Rocket Lake chip. The difference in processor performance was insignificant 6.2%, but it is hardly worth making any conclusions. Still, we are talking about very early tests.
