While MSI says Intel’s 11th Gen processors Rocket Lake series will be released in late March, it is preparing to support 11th Gen for some of its cards.
The first quarter of 2021 was marked by the launch of the Rocket Lake series, the new generation of processors from Intel, which dominates the processor market. A message from the official MSI account of Danwana forums in South Korea confirmed the release date of the processors.
While the user nicknamed @ harukaze5719 shared the post on Twitter, Videocardz also confirmed the post. The automatic translation of the mail, on the other hand, gave a sufficiently precise explanation, although it did not produce a perfect translation.
Statement of MSI on forum
Currently, Intel 10th generation cards such as the H410, B460 and Z490 will be updated for Intel 11th generation processors, and the Z490 will be the first motherboard to be updated.
Intel 11th Gen CPUs are scheduled to release at the end of March, and boards will be updated one by one before the March release. “
Cypress Cove’s core architecture will be used in the Rocket Lake family, Intel’s 11th generation processors. These processor cores are aimed at improving thread performance. Intel hopes to take the lead in single-threading in the next generation, leaving AMD’s Ryzen 5000 series behind.
However, it should be noted that AMD will have an advantage over its competitor in terms of core count. AMD provides 16 cores support in the AM4 socket. Intel is expected to include up to 8 cores in the Rocket Lake series.
Competition in the processor market continues
Rocket Lake processors support the 400 series LGA 1200 motherboards in use today when used with the correct BIOS settings. Intel’s next generation 500 series LGA 1200 motherboards are expected to be available in the near future as complementary to new processors.
The battle in the processor market between AMD and Intel seems to be going on longer. Both companies are forcing each other to do better and be more competitive in terms of price, with different methods and architectures. The users benefit the most from this situation.
