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