Intel confirms that Rocket Lake will be released in Q1 2021

In a blog post on Medium today, Intel's John Bonini confirmed that the company will launch the next-generation desktop platform in the first quarter of 2021. It is called Rocket Lake, possibly under the 11th generation of Intel Core branding, and will have PCIe 4.0 support . After several months of rumors about Rocket Lake and PCIe 4.0, this article from Intel is the main source that confirms it all.


The post does not include more details on Rocket Lake. For our part, we assume this is another 14nm processor. The questions whether it will be built with the Skylake architecture that existed in the previous five generations of 14nm or is a "back-port" of the latest micro-architectural designs of Intel Cove. By adding PCIe 4.0 support instead of PCIe 3.0 - there is no specific indication at the moment that there will be an increase in PCIe slots from the CPU, although that was an idea that has been released.

It is noteworthy in the publication that John Bonini (VP / GM for Intel Desktop / Workstation / Gaming) cites high processor frequencies as a key measure of high efficiency in games and popular applications, citing various Intel Turbo Boost technologies. In the same paragraph, he then mentions the "overclocking" processors of Intel at 7 GHz, failing to mention that this type of overclocking is not done for a game or for workflow reasons. The article also seems to jump into the discussion about enthusiastic gamers, to mention below the ordinary players of mobile graphics so she is a bit confused. Please note that this post was released on Medium, not on Intel's website.

There are two reasons why this blog post was released today. First, recent unconfirmed leaks on Intel's roadmap have firmly set the next generation desktop processor in Q1 or Q2 2021. By confirming Q1 as the launch period, Intel is at least putting the rumors in order. The second reason is contest announcing: AMD has a Zen3 related presentation on October 8, and so with the Intel article, we at least know what happens to Intel and AMD.
