Word is going around that Intel may introduce the 500-series chipsets at its digital-only CES 2021 press conference. The rumor is that the Z590, B560 and H510 series will be revealed during the event.

Intel is also expected to reveal Tiger Lake-H35 processors, which are slightly higher TDP variants of the Tiger Lake-U and Tiger Lake-Y series. We may also see the release of Tiger Lake-H parts with a 45W TDP, these chips will replace the existing Comet Lake-H processors in next-gen gaming laptops.

This means we will not see the release of Rocket Lake-S at CES 2021. Basically, Intel will launch another PCI Express 4.0 capable chipset series without the processor that enables this feature. WCCF Tech claims we'll see the launch of Rocket Lake-S on March 1st with actual product availability on March 19th:
We have received two dates from our sources for the 11th Gen Rocket Lake lineup. The first embargo seems to end on the 1st of March and that is most likely the review embargo for the chips. Intel’s Rocket Lake CPU pre-orders may also commence on the same day however actual availability isn’t expected till the 2nd embargo lifts up which ends on the 19th of March. — Hassan Mujtaba, Wccftech
