Thanks to more competition from AMD, Intel users will be getting more features. VideoCardz reports the upcoming B560 chipset from Intel will feature memory overclocking. Previously, the chip giant limited this feature to its more expensive Z-series chipsets.
Intel is alleged to follow AMD’s path with their upper-mid-range B550 motherboard series, which already offers memory overclocking. Intel said this option as well for its upcoming B560 series. This allowed the leaker from Bilibili to confirm whether the samples that tested support memory’s built-in overclocking profiles (XMP) or not.
The 500-series chipsets are expected to be introduced in early January 2021, at a virtual CES 2021 event. The Rocket Lake-S processors will follow later, probably sometime in March or a bit earlier if Intel can get some volume out.
