One should not take a cursory look at the technical data of the new Rocket Lake-S processors. Despite the 14nm manufacturing process, a lot has happened under the heatspreader. Comet Lake-S shows that Intel is still squeezing a lot of potential out of the silicon with the new architecture.
The old Skylake architecture has now had its day and will be replaced by Sunny Cove, but the performance of the new Intel generation is still remarkable. When comparing the microarchitectures it becomes clear that there is now a slightly larger L2 cache. Each calculation kernel has become a bit larger in terms of the die area. The familiar naming scheme is retained. There are therefore also variants without an iGPU or without a freely selectable multiplier.
The current generation of Rocket Lake remains true to the 1200 socket. Nevertheless, there is a new high-end platform for the new processors with the Z590 chipset. The new chips can also be operated on the 400 series motherboards via a BIOS update. The extent to which the new features are then all supported is up to the respective on-board partner. If you want to be on the safe side, you should choose a current board, then there is certainly PCI-E 4.0 support with a maximum of 20 lanes.
With Rocket Lake-S, Intel tries to close the gap to AMD. Sometimes they succeed and in many places the new processors are on par with AMD.
ENERMAX Liqmax III ARGB 360, type internal (closed system), heat sink CPU, heat sink material copper, compatibility CPU 1150, 1151, 1155, 1156, 1366, 2011, 2011-3, 2066, AM2, AM2 +, AM3, AM3 +, AM4, FM1 , FM2, FM2 +, radiator size 360mm, radiator thickness 27mm, radiator material aluminum, fan 3x 120mm, 500-1600rpm, 14-27dB (A), 38.23-122.5m³ / h, pump 12V, special features LED (RGB), LED control, wired remote control.
The Enermax Liqmax III 360 ARGB complete water cooling combines first-class performance with a stylish design. The CPU cooler is equipped with digitally addressable RGB LED lighting that can be synchronized via the mainboard. The three 120 RGB fans specially developed for use on radiators generate high static pressure and bright illumination.
The Enermax Liqmax III 360 ARGB complete water cooling at a glance:
Digitally addressable RGB LED lighting on CPU block and fan
360 mm aluminum radiator for maximum cooling performance
Three 120 mm ARGB fans with a static pressure of 1.98 mm H2O
Max. 122.5 m³ / h delivery volume at max. 1600 rpm
Easy handling thanks to flexible hoses with kink protection
Compatible with common AMD & Intel sockets
Even the Liqmax III RGB 240 can offer a respectable cooling performance and outperform some 240 mm models from the competition. The Liqmax III ARGB 360 goes one step further. The 360 mm radiator cools significantly better, especially when the fan speed is reduced. And there are also clear differences in the lighting effect. The regular RGB lighting with the restriction to one color at the same time is almost simple. The ARGB variant is more colorful and is just right for users who want particularly varied lighting. A clear plus is that, unlike the RGB version, a controller is included. The lighting can also be controlled independently of the mainboard.
MSI Z590 Pro WIFI, form factor ATX, socket Intel 1200, chipset Intel Z590, CPU compatibility Core i-11000, RAM 4x DDR4 DIMM, dual PC4-42666U / DDR4-5333 (OC), max.128GB (UDIMM), expansion slots 1x PCIe 4.0 x16 (CPU), 1x PCIe 3.0 x16, 2x PCIe 3.0 x1, 1x M.2 / M-Key (PCIe 4.0 x4, 22110/2280/2260/2242, CPU), 2x M.2 / M-Key (PCIe 3.0 x4 / SATA, 2280/2260/2242,), 1x M.2 / E-Key (PCIe / Intel CNVi, 2230, occupied by WiFi + BT module), External connections 1x HDMI 2.0b (iGPU), 1x DisplayPort 1.4 (iGPU), 1x USB-C 3.2 (20Gb / s, 1x USB-A 3.1 (10Gb / s), 2x USB-A 3.0 (5Gb / s ), 4x USB-A 2.0 (480Mb / s), 1x 2.5GBase-T (Intel I225-V), 6x jack, 1x PS / 2 combo, internal connections 1x USB-C 3.1 Key-A header (10Gb / S), 2x USB 3.0 header (5Gb / s, 4x USB 3.0), 2x USB 2.0 header (480Mb / s, 4x USB 2.0, Z590 via hub GL850G), 6x SATA 6Gb / s, 1x serial, 1x TPM -Header, 1x Thunderbolt header 13-pin, 1x chassis intrusion header, 1x MSI tuning controller header 5-pin, header lighting 1x 4-pin RGB (+ 12V / G / R / B, max. 3A), 2x 3-Pin ARGB (+ 5V / DATA / GND, max. 3A) buttons / switches USB BIOS Flashback (external), Audio 7.1 (Realtek ALC897), Wireless Wi-Fi 6E (WLAN 802.11a / b / g / n / ac / ax, 2x2, Intel AX210), Bluetooth 5.2, RAID level 0/1/5/10 (Z590), multi-GPU AMD 2-Way-CrossFireX ( x16 / x4), power connections 1x 24-pin ATX, 1x 8-pin EPS12V, 1x 4-pin ATX12V, 1x 6-pin PCIe special features audio + solid capacitors, diagnostic LED (LED indicators), 1x M.2 passive cooling.
What is the fundamental difference between the Z590 chipset and the Z490: the major changes include native USB 3.2 Gen2x2 support (20 GBit / s) on up to three Type-C interfaces, and Wi-Fi 6E support and the DMI (Direct Media Interface) drilled to PCIe 3.0 x8 as a connection between CPU (Northbridge) and chipset (Southbridge). With the new Rocket Lake S processors, the Z590 chipset now also allows a more flexible PCIe lane division. 1x16 or 2x8 or 1x8 and 2x4 became 1x16 + 1x4 or 2x8 + 1x4 or even 1x 8 and 3x4. The Z490 chipset offers a maximum of six USB 3.2 Gen2 ports. With the Z590-PCH, Intel has now increased this limit to ten interfaces.
On the MSI Z590-A PRO WIFI, the manufacturer has taken into account a passive cooler for the M.2 slot via the processor. Since a PCIe 4.0 x4 SSD can also be used in combination with the eleventh core generation (Rocket Lake-S), this definitely makes sense for thermal reasons.
But MSI has now also fundamentally changed the look. White vertical and horizontal stripes were attached to the black PCB, which bring a breath of fresh air, but are still a matter of taste. The same look can also be found on the VRM cooler, next to the new MSI logo. As usual, up to 128 GB of RAM can be stowed in the four DDR4 UDIMM memory banks. In connection with two single-rank modules, MSI specifies an effective memory clock rate of 5,333 MHz. It should be up to 4,700 MHz with two dual-rank DIMMs. A fully connected PCIe x16 slot goes to work itself via the LGA1200 CPU. The PCIe 4.0 standard can only be used if a Rocket Lake S CPU is installed in the socket and the top M.2 interface with a maximum of PCIe 4.0 x4 can also be used.
KFA2 GeForce RTX 3080 Ti SG [1-Click OC], 12GB GDDR6X, connections 1x HDMI 2.1, 3x DisplayPort 1.4a, chip GA102-225-A1 "Ampere", 80SM, 628mm², chip clock 1365MHz, boost: 1710MHz (OC mode) , Memory 12GB GDDR6X, 1188MHz, 19Gbps (19000MHz effective), 384bit, 912GB / s, shader units / TMUs / ROPs 10240/320/112, cooling 4x axial fans (3x 92mm + 1x 80mm) (RGB illuminated ), Special features real-time ray tracing, ray tracing cores (80), tensor cores (320), NVIDIA G-Sync, NVIDIA VR-Ready, AV1 Decode, HDCP 2.3, 0dB zero fan mode, backplate, LED lighting (RGB ), Boost clock overclocked (+ 45MHz), interface PCIe 4.0 x16, computing power 35.02 TFLOPS (FP32), 547 GFLOPS (FP64), DirectX 12 Ultimate (12_2) OpenGL 4.6 OpenCL 3.0 Vulkan 1.2 Shader model 6.6.
Nvidia has gone even further: with 12.0 GB of VRAM, it should eliminate the supposed weakness of the RTX 3080, which is equipped with "only" 10.0 GB, and at the same time tie in with the performance of the RTX 3090.
The performance rating shows that the RTX 3080 Ti is on average ten percent faster under 4K resolution than the Geforce RTX 3080. However, the latter is already overclocked at the factory, which is why the distance between the RTX 3080 Ti and the Founders Edition of the RTX 3080 is slightly larger should fail. Conversely, some custom models of the RTX 3080 Ti will be correspondingly faster than the Founders Edition.
As expected, the lead shrinks to five percent under WQHD resolution, compared to the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT it is still seven percent.
The Nvidia Geforce RTX 3080 Ti is aimed at enthusiasts for whom the RTX 3090's 24.0 GB video memory is too much. The RTX 3080 Ti is something for you under the following conditions:
You want maximum performance in general, but you don't need 24.0 GB of video memory.
You prefer to play in 4K or want to achieve three-digit FPS values in WQHD.
You want maximum ray tracing performance.
With the Geforce RTX 3080 Ti, Nvidia brings the actual player flagship from the RTX 3000 series. Where the RTX 3090 is simply oversized, the RTX 3080 Ti offers just the right amount of video memory, coupled with plenty of computing power.
If you are looking for the highest possible performance for gaming in 4K resolution as well as for ray tracing, you will find it here. Alongside the RTX 3090, the RTX 3080 Ti is currently the most powerful 4K graphics card.

Microsoft Windows 10 Professional 64Bit, pre-installed with all necessary device drivers. Switch on and get started!
The launch of Windows 10 and the associated developments are among the most important market launches in Microsoft's corporate history. Windows 10 not only brings a new version of the operating system onto the market, Windows 10 enables a new platform generation:
"We want to ensure that we offer developers the largest and most vibrant user base for their applications," said Satya Nadella in his opening keynote at BUILD 2015 in San Francisco. Windows 10 is now available in 190 countries and 111 languages.
The browser is really new in Windows 10: Edge replaces Internet Explorer. The new browser doesn't just have the cooler name. It is also much faster. In almost all browser benchmarks, Edge depends on IE 11 from Windows 8.1. It can almost double its pace in Mozilla's Kraken benchmark. It looks the same in Google's Octane 2.0 test. Its pace remains roughly the same in the Sunspider test and the Peacekeeper benchmark. Conclusion: When it comes to the browser speed, Windows 10 with Edge catches up a lot. In Kraken and Octane, Edge overtakes the competition, in the Sunspider he stays ahead. The old conditions are only preserved in the Peacekeeper test.
Microsoft already shortened the start times of Windows extremely with Windows 8. If the computer is switched off using "Shut down", it does not switch itself off, but only goes into hibernation - from which it can wake up more quickly. Even with a real Katlstart or restart, Windows 8.1 is slightly slower: However, over time, Windows remembers the files that it needs for the start: The start time is shortened with repeated starts. After ten starts, the two operating systems were almost on par with 20 seconds (Windows 10) and 22 seconds (Windows 8.1).
Windows is actually getting faster and faster the older it gets: For most components, manufacturers are releasing ever more up-to-date drivers that accelerate the hardware. Windows feels like it is getting slower and slower: This is mostly due to the fact that the autostart folder is filling up with more and more entries, more and more tools are running in the background and more and more programs that are no longer used are littering the memory. The performance tests show hardly any difference between Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Sometimes one system is faster, sometimes the other. But all the results are so closely related - with less than three percent difference - that no difference is noticeable in practice. This also applies to tests such as Cinebench R15, which primarily check the processor performance. Even if we repeated the tests several times, nothing changed: When saving and buffering frequently used files, nothing seems to have changed between Windows 8.1 and 10. Conclusion: When it comes to hardware performance, Windows 10 is as fast as Windows 8.1 - or vice versa. So that Windows 10 stays fast, the same rules apply as always with Windows: Install the latest drivers and keep the system clean.
Windows 10 comes with the new Direct X12 3D interface. DX12 is designed to allow game programmers to use the capabilities of the GPU more efficiently. Computers with less powerful graphics cards can also benefit from this and display graphically complex games more smoothly. At the moment, the potential of DX12 can only be demonstrated using synthetic benchmarks such as the API overhead test. Conclusion: Windows 10 has the potential to accelerate games on weaker systems thanks to the DX12. But the concrete results will only show games that use DX12. The first should appear at the end of the year.
Windows 10 lays a good foundation: the hardware manufacturers have to use this to tease out a performance plus with improved drivers. Or in the case of Direct X12 game programmers who use the capabilities of the new interface in games.
