    Phoronix: Intel Sends Out Rocket Lake Linux Graphics Driver Patches - Confirms Gen12 Platform

    A day after announcing the 10th Gen Core "Comet Lake" S-Series CPUs, the Intel open-source engineers have volleyed their first patches for bringing up the graphics on next-gen Rocket Lake...

    Have many hours of fun trying to mitigate the included hardware flaws

      .... are still expected to have 14nm CPU cores ....
      While that has been a guess that has been repeated by others (group think), has there been any actual confirmation from Intel as to the process that will be used?

        More like "Emergency Lake."

          Really?!

          And desktop processors still are stuck in the same 14nm Lake loop!

          I can't believe it!

            A 5.3Ghz Rocket Lake-S chip with two generations of IPC updates over Comet Lake cores, increased caches, Xe graphics, PCIE4 and AVX512 sounds pretty good to me.

              Rocket lake is such a cool product name. Pitty it is wasted on what looks like yet another refresh, but at the same time XE graphics sound interesting. Wonder if they will be more in line with the performance of an AMD APU or more midrange discrete graphics card?

                Leaks on Rocket Lake-S say it is using Willow Cove cores, same as used on Tiger Lake, including avx512. So, not another Skylake refresh but, true, it does use 14nm processing which also could enable the type of boost clock performance that we see on Comet Lake.

                  Oh it will sound pretty loud. The Z490 mainstream motherboards will have hilarious VRM setups. This ASRock Z490 PG Velocita has 600A of VRM with 3 cooling fans for it
