Intel Rocket Lake-S Launch Date Has Been Announced
With the arrival of 12th generation Intel Rocket Lake-S processors, LGA 1200 socket will be no more. The 400 series motherboards will support 12th generation processors. Confirming this support, MSI first stated that high quality Z series motherboards will receive this support. MSI also marked the end of March for the launch date of the new Intel Rocket Lake family. It confirmed that the required update for the 400 series motherboards will also arrive in the same month.
Intel, has no problem with leaking products, and they are also comfortable with processors that are not yet in the market. This makes the information about the traders clear before they releases. Although some companies prefer this method, there are strict some manufacturers with strict rules on this, such as NVIDIA. The new leak from Intel is about the introduction date of 12th generation processors.
MSI official account provided information about the launch date of Intel Rocket Lake processors via South Korea’s Danawa forum. The new processors will be introduced at the end of March, according to MSI. According to the expectations, intel will introduce the Alder Lake-S processors in the second quarter of 2021, after Rocket Lake-S desktop processors.
The necessary update for the 400 series motherboards is expected to arrive in March. Intel, which has switched to PCIe 4.0 technology with Rocket Lake-S, will provide this support via the processor, unlike AMD. It is not yet clear whether there will be PCIe 4.0 support on 400 series motherboards. In 500 series motherboards, PCIe 4.0 support can only be provided with Z series.
It is worth remembering that this verification by MSI does not reflect 100 percent truth, and the promotion may be delayed for any reason.
