Intel has confirmed that 11th-generation (Rocket Lake) desktop processors will be available in the first quarter of 2021 and will support PCIe 4.0.

With AMD close to launching its first processor based on the next-generation Zen 3 desktop architecture, the timing of Intel's announcement may not be a coincidence.

The introduction of AMD's first processors based on next-generation architecture (Zen 3) has intensified competition to date for Intel's dominance in high-power computing.

Reminding Intel that it will get its own new chip next year seems to remind PC makers that there are other options besides the hardware that AMD has announced.

As for the actual release date, Intel is considered a wave of news, but the news is that the chip is expected to arrive in March 2021.

The new (Rocket Lake) chip should also be compatible with the existing LGA1200 socket for Intel 400 series motherboard.

This should come in handy for anyone looking to upgrade the next time they launch a new chipset.

Intel is planning to release a number of new Intel 500 series motherboards, such as: B. Z590 or B560.

Wccftech also provided additional information about Intel's expectations for the next major improvement in desktop processors.

Intel is expected to continue using the same 14nm manufacturing process that has been in use for many years.

Intel is working hard to support some of the architectural improvements that debuted the Willow Cove architecture for its 11th generation mobile processors, according to Wccftech.

While Intel is not yet able to release desktop processors based on the 10nm process, these structural improvements are expected to provide basic upgrades.

In addition to graphics and memory support (PCIe 4.0), Rocket Lake also provides the new infrastructure (Cypress Cove) in addition to graphics (Intel Xe Gen12, Thunderbolt 4) and (USB4).

Rocket Lake processors can compete with Ryzen 5000 processors in next-generation (Zen 3) architecture.
