The Rocket Lake processors are stated to feature up to eight cores and sixteen threads, which is a bit lower when compared to the 10th generation processors, which topped out at ten cores and twenty threads.

Intel has stated that when compared to AMD processors, the multi-threaded performance may be lacking, but the single-threaded performance will make up for that fact.

The Rocket Lake processors support PCIe 4.0, which offers double the bandwidth compared to PCIe 3.0; this allows for better performance with supported graphics cards and addon cards.
