Gorgeous: Look up, and appreciate a cooled Rocket Lake processor sending its clocks skywards to a stratospheric 6.9 GHz and beyond. In two short clips posted to Twitter, overclockers push an octa-core Rocket Lake processor to 6923.56 MHz utilizing liquid nitrogen.

The clips are rather lacking unique details, but as a development, the use of exotic cooling on Rocket Lake processors is an appealing one. It might show that a release is imminent. If that’s the case, then Intel’s keynote on Monday, helmed by their executive VP Gregory Bryant, could be the minute.

Intel is most likely to use liquid nitrogen as a marketing tactic for Rocket Lake, so this is your tip to deal with bold performance claims with suspicion.

The last time Intel used exotic cooling for marketing was at Computex2018 Intel declared it was all a misunderstanding …

With a little luck, Intel won’t need such marketing tactics to sell Rocket Lake. It’ll be the first generation of Intel desktop processors to present a new architecture. That might enhance performance by ~20%. It will likewise introduce PCIe 4.0 and AVX-512 to the Intel platform.

Stay tuned for Monday, when Bryant takes the phase at virtual CES at 1 pm PST/ 4 pm EST.
