We're less than 48 hours away from AMD unveiling it's next-gen Zen 3 CPU architecture and next-gen Ryzen processors, with some new leaks on Intel's next-gen Rocket Lake-S series emerging.
Intel's new Rocket Lake-S looks to be interesting as it will be compatible with existing 400-series motherboards (LGA1200). But we are to expect Intel and its motherboard partners to unveil a new generation of 500-series motherboards, where the flagship Z590 chipset should debut with the new 11th Gen Core CPUs.
The original plan was for the latest 14nm+++++++ chips to be launched somewhere around December 2020 to January 2021, but now we're expecting a reveal at CES 2021 and launch in March 2021 according to the latest from VideoCardz.
An interesting twist here is that the flagship Rocket Lake-S processor would be an 8-core/16-thread CPU, which is a bit weird as the current flagship Core i9-10900K processor is a 10-core/20-thread CPU. We should expect more details on Rocket Lake-S over the coming months, while Zen 3 debuts in 48 hours.
