It is known that all modern Intel processors for mobile computers have FCBGA design – they are not mounted in a socket, but instead soldered directly to the motherboard and can not be replaced without specialized hardware. It seems that with the launch of the Core 11000B series, the company will apply this approach to personal computers. It is assumed that PC users with these processors will not be able to replace them unless they contact a service center.
Intel has released a new series of Core 11000B processors for compact desktop computers that carry index „B”. Although the company did not disclose kWhat does this mean, experts comment that most likely “B” indicates the way of installation of the processor – it will be soldered to the motherboard without the possibility of replacement. The new series includes one i3, i5, i7 and i9 processor, production of which will begin in the second quarter of 2021. According to the thematic web resource Profesional Review, the B index is probably an abbreviation of BGA, which is related to the way the processor is mounted . Intel’s compact NUCs will be the first to receive Core 11000B series processors. Other PC makers are expected to be interested in these chips, with the exception of Apple, which abandoned Intel in the summer of 2020 in favor of its own Arm architecture.
The Intel Core 11000B series consists of the Core i3-11100B, Core i5-11500B, Core i7-11700B and Core i9-11900KB models. At the same time, Intel reveals the price of only the highest class Core i9-11900KB, which costs $ 539 and can be installed in the FCBGA1787 socket. All four processors have the same heat dissipation power (TDP) – 65W, as well as the same dimensions – 42 × 28 mm. The low TDP means that a small heatsink will be sufficient to efficiently cool the processors.
It is also known that Core 11000B chips support HyperThreading technology, which allows each core to process two threads of instructions simultaneously. The Core i3 has four cores, the i5 has six, and the i7 and i9 are octa-core. The integrated graphics are 11th generation UHD Graphics, and the clock speeds range from 3.2GHz to 4.9GHz. The Core i9-11900KB also has an additional “K” index, which is absent in the other three chips. According to Intel’s specifications, this means that the processor has an unlocked overclocking multiplier.
