As per a Twitter user @9550pro, An engineering sample of the Rocket Lake-S Core processor was tested using the CPU-Z software. The Twitter user tweeted a message posted on Alibaba’s Xianyu platform.
It is to be noted that the sample is not the final product hence the clock speeds will be different from those of the retail units. This engineering unit features 8-cores and 16-threads. It also features a base clock speed of 1.8 GHz and a multi-core boost clock speed of up to 3.8 GHz. The processor also features a single-core boost clock speed of up to 4.4 GHz. Unfortunately, we do not know whether the highest frequency is similar to the frequency of Thermal Velocity Boost or Turbo Boost Max 3.0 frequency.
The processor was housed in MSI Z490I (UNIFY?) motherboard. It is a Mini-ITX form factor board that features an LGA1200 socket and can support both the Intel 11th Gen Core and 10th Gen Core processors. The Twitter user message also stated that the current BIOS does not support integrated Xe Graphics that Rocket Lake-S processors feature.
As far as the scores are concerned, the processor scored 582 points in single-threaded built-in benchmarks of CPU-Z software. CPU-Z’s charts show that the sample stands with the Core i9-10900K. In the multi-thread test, the processor scored 5262 points which is slower than the Core i7-10700 as it scored 5435 points in the same test.
The picture in the tweet shows that the processor features the same QV1J label as in yesterday’s sample picture so it might be the same processor.
