The new processer was engineered on a new Cypress Core architecture which are designed to transform hardware and software efficiency and increase raw gaming performance. The new architecture brings up to 19% gen-over-gen instructions per cycle (IPC) improvements for the highest frequency cores and with its built-in graphics card Intel UHD that features Intel X graphics architecture for rich media and intelligent graphics capabilities. This will help games and application to give more performance that relies on high-frequency cores to drive high frame rates and low latency.

Design for Gaming

With the new 11th Gen desktop processor, Intel is pushing its new processor for improved gaming performance breaking the limits which delivers amazing and immersive experience for everyone.

The flagship 11th Gen Intel Core i9-11900K, features an unmatched performance of up to 5.3GHz, 8 cores, 16 threads and 16mb of Intel Smart Cache. It also supports fast memory speed with DDR4-3200 to enable smooth gameplay and seamless multitasking on the platform.

Here are the improvement against its previous generation:

  • Up to 19% gen-over-gen IPC performance improvement
  • Up to 50% better integrated graphics performance with Intel UHD graphics
  • Intel Deep Learning Boost and Vector Neural Network instructions supports for artificial intelligence (AI) interence for deep learning tasks.
  • Enhanced overclocking tools and features for flexible overclocking and tuning performance and experience.

Intel also collaborated with over 200 top game developers to bring Intel’s optimization to their game, engine, middleware and rendering.

The new processor will also supports the long-due PCIe 4.0 lanes. Here are the complete specs of the new Intel 11th gen.
