Intel Rocket Lake release date, specs and price – everything we know

At CES 2021, Intel has followed up its 10th-generation Comet Lake-S processors with new Rocket Lake-S processors, led by the Intel Core i9-11900K, just under a year later.

This marks a remarkably short generation of processors for 10th-generation Comet Lake processors like the Core i9-10900K, but Intel has brought some new features and compatibility that soften the blow a bit. Namely, the new 11th-generation processors will be compatible with existing 400-series motherboards after a BIOS update, and this new generation brings PCIe 4.0 compatibility to Intel’s desktop platforms for the first time. 

Cut to the Chase

  • What is it: Intel’s 11th-generation desktop platform
  • When is it out: Sometime in Q1 2021
  • How much will it cost? Likely starting at $122 (£89, AU$160)

Intel Rocket Lake release date

Intel Rocket Lake processors were announced at CES 2021, but aren’t available yet. We still don’t have a solid release date. However, with all the rumors pointing to a March release date even before CES, and with Intel claiming they’re coming “later in Q1,” we’re sure they’ll come out within the next couple of months.
