More to the point, the post also follows up its reply with the launch period for Rocket Lake-S, which is the end of March, and that it will update all 400 series mainboards before the launch of the CPU lineup. Unsurprisingly, MSI later updated that reply, removing any specific mention for the launch date of Rocket Lake-S.
Rocket Lake-S’ potential launch window notwithstanding, it’s safe to say we know what to expect from the CPU lineup: the CPU lineup will use the current LGA1200 socket, is based on the near ancient 14nm process node, backported from its new Cypress Cove CPU architecture. More importantly, it will be the first Intel desktop CPU to support PCIe 4.0.
In spite of MSI’s slip up, one point that is certain is that we’ll certainly be hearing more from Intel about Rocket Lake-S during CES 2021, which is just around the corner.
