    Engineered on the new Cypress Cove architecture, 11th Gen Intel Core S-series desktop processors 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) improvement2 for the highest frequency cores and adds Intel® UHD graphics featuring the Intel® Xe graphics architecture for rich media and intelligent graphics capabilities. That matters because games and most applications continue to depend on high-frequency cores to drive high frame rates and low latency.

    Designed to Game: With its new 11th Gen desktop processors, Intel continues to push desktop gaming performance to the limits and deliver the most amazing immersive experiences for players everywhere.

    At the top of the stack is the 11th Gen Intel Core i9-11900K, featuring unmatched performance with up to 5.3 gigahertz, eight cores, 16 threads and 16 megabytes of Intel® Smart Cache. The unlocked 11th Gen Intel Core desktop processor supports fast memory speeds with DDR4-3200 to help enable smooth gameplay and seamless multitasking on this platform.
    Improvements in this generation include:

    • Up to 19% gen-over-gen IPC performance improvement.
    • Up to 50% better integrated graphics performance with Intel UHD graphics featuring Intel Xe graphics architecture.3
    • Intel® Deep Learning Boost and Vector Neural Network Instructions support​ to accelerate artificial intelligence (AI) inference — vastly improving performance for deep learning workloads.
    • Enhanced overclocking tools and features for flexible overclocking and tuning performance and experience.

    Through close collaboration with more than 200 of the top game developers, Intel brings a host of game, engine, middleware and rendering optimizations to applications so they can take advantage of 11th Gen Intel® Core™ S-series processors to deliver exciting gaming experiences.

    Superior Tuning and Stability: 11th Gen Intel Core desktop processors introduce new overclocking tools and features for more flexible tuning to achieve unmatched speeds and superior game performance. This generation includes real-time memory overclocking which enables changes to DDR4 frequency in real time, extending memory overclocking support for H570 and B560 chipsets allowing users to experience overclocking, Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) 2 and AVX-512 voltage guard band override, and an all new integrated memory controller with wider timings and Gear 2 support (in addition to Gear 1 support).

    Media and Streaming Features for Days: The new 11th Gen Intel Core S-series delivers rich media experiences, from AAA gaming to high-definition streaming with additional features including DDR4-3200 MHz support, 20 PCIe 4.0 lanes, Intel Quick Sync Video, enhanced media​ (10bit AV1/12bit high-efficiency video coding decode and end-to-end compression), enhanced display (Integrated HDMI 2.0, HBR3), and discrete Thunderbolt™ 4 and Intel Wi-Fi 6E support.

    I'd jump on it, but I'm holding out for socket 1700, DDR5, PCIe 5.0, and 10 nanometer on Alder Lake in maybe a year.

    I guess socket 1200 will be quite short-lived.

    That's the one I'm waiting on as well.

    Only thing that has me spooked is that I will have shameful early adopter impulses and may end up in motherboard hell.

    I'd hope I can resist for a few months, but that may be futile. I haven't upgraded since 2017.

    I hear you. I'd like to see how the new 10nm and chipset fairs after a bit before diving in.

    I was tempted to wait for Alder Lake as well, but my last desktop PC is 4th Gen i7 so I really need an upgrade . Besides, there is ALWAYS something newer and better just around the corner, so if I were to wait for the next great thing I would never build a system.

    Also, mining has been really good to me so I'm funding a new system from mining proceeds. Have all the parts here on hand or in transit with the exception of the i9-11900K. I'm hoping to be able to grab one on the 30th if I get very, very, lucky.

    I'm going whole hog this time around with 128GB DRAM, multiple NVMe SSDs, and I plan to add an 8TB SATA SSD in the next month or two.

    Great fun!

    I am skipping this generation too. I still have an older i7-5960x

    I am seriously thinking about upgrading to the i9-11900K next month. Want to see some reviews before I make a final decision.
