News popped up that Intel's Rocket Lake-S will hit the market by the end of March, which is somewhat in-line with recent rumors. VideoCardz reports the source of this leak is a message from an MSI customer service employee on a South Korean forum. The new processor will be preceded by the release of 500-series motherboards. Rocket Lake-S will also be compatible with existing 400-series motherboards after a BIOS update.
This is a confirmation of the rumors that Intel will only lift the sales embargo on its upcoming 500-series motherboards (Z590, B560, H510), while the 11th Gen Core “Rocket Lake-S” processors will not be available till March. Previous dates that have been speculated are March 15th with availability expected in early April.
