Intel 11th Gen Core RocketLake – Cache & Memory Performance (2x DDR4-3200)

What is “RocketLake”? It is the desktop/workstation version of the true “next generation” Core (gen 10+) architecture – finally replacing the ageing “Skylake (SKL)” arch and its many derivatives that are still with us (“CometLake (CML)”, etc.). It is a combination of the “IceLake (ICL)” CPU cores launched about a … Read more…

Intel Core Gen10 CometLake (i9-10900K) Review & Benchmarks – CPU Performance

Intel Core i9 10th Gen

What is “CometLake”? It is one of the 10th generation Core arch (CML) from Intel – the latest revision of the venerable (6th gen!) “Skylake” (SKL) arch; it succeeds the “CofeeLake” 8/9-gen current architectures for desktop devices. The “real” 10th generation Core arch is “IceLake” (ICL) that does bring many … Read more…

Intel Core Gen10 IceLake ULV (i7-1065G7) Review & Benchmarks – CPU AVX512 Performance

Intel Core i7 Gen10

What is “IceLake”? It is the “real” 10th generation Core arch(itecture) (ICL/”IceLake”) from Intel – the brand new core to replace the ageing “Skylake” (SKL) arch and its many derivatives; due to delays it actually debuts shortly after the latest update (“CometLake” (CLM)) that is also called 10th generation. Firstly … Read more…

Intel Core Gen10 CometLake ULV (i7-10510U) Review & Benchmarks – CPU Performance

Intel Core i7 Gen10

What is “CometLake”? It is one of the 10th generation Core arch (CML) from Intel – the latest revision of the venerable (6th gen!) “Skylake” (SKL) arch; it succeeds the “WhiskyLake”/”CofeeLake” 8/9-gen current architectures for mobile (ULV U/Y) devices. The “real” 10th generation Core arch is “IceLake” (ICL) that does … Read more…

Intel Core i9 9900K CofeeLake-R Review & Benchmarks – CPU 8-core/16-thread Performance

Core i9 9900K

What is “CofeeLake-R” CFL-R? It is the “refresh” (updated) version of the 8th generation Intel Core architecture (CFL) – itself a minor stepping of the previous 7th generation “KabyLake” (KBL), itself a minor update of the 6th generation “SkyLake” (SKL). While ordinarily this would not be much of an event … Read more…

Intel Core i7 8700K CofeeLake Review & Benchmarks – CPU 6-core/12-thread Performance

What is “CofeeLake” CFL? The 8th generation Intel Core architecture is code-named “CofeeLake” (CFL): unlike previous architectures, it is a minor stepping of the previous 7th generation “KabyLake” (KBL), itself a minor update of the 6th generation “SkyLake” (SKL). The server/workstation (SKL-X/KBL-X) CPU core saw new instruction set support (AVX512) … Read more…

Intel Core i9 7900X (SKL-X) Review & Benchmarks – CPU 10-core/20-thread AVX512 Performance

Intel Skylake-X Core i9

What is “SKL-X”? “Skylake-X” (E/EP) is the server/workstation/HEDT version of desktop/mobile Skylake CPU – the 6-th gen Core/Xeon replacing the current Haswell/Broadwell-E designs. It naturally does not contain an integrated GPU but what does contain is more cores, more PCIe lanes and more memory channels: Server 2S, 4S and 8S … Read more…
