An alleged Rocket Lake CPU appears on Geekbench with a 5 GHz boost clock

Rocket Lake can go up to 8 cores, 16 threads and a top spped of 4.98GHz. At least, this is what is claimed in a new leak featuring on the Geekbench website. The silicon in question apparently exhibited this boost clock in an existing HP system.

Rocket Lake is an upcoming Intel series projected to go up to an 8-core/16-thread configuration. Some of its potential proponents have been spotted in leaks at speeds such as 4.5GHz at most. However, a new one suggests that some SKUs may go even higher than that.

The widely-regarded leaker TUM APISAK has found a new listing on Geekbench, and now asserts that it is associated with Rocket Lake. This set of results is for an unnamed, yet "genuine" Intel CPU with 8 cores. It is apparently contained within a 32GB RAM SKU of the previously-released HP OMEN 30L desktop, and has a base clock of 3.41GHz, which can boost to 4.98GHz.

This has propelled it to single-core scores of 1645, and multi-core results of 9783, on Geekbench 5. Then again, there is no further evidence that they have truly been accrued by a Rocket Lake member. However, should this be the case, Ryzen 5000 might have something to worry about after all.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
