Better late than never – Intel 11. Gen processors
Just under a year after the launch of Intel's Comet Lake series, the new 11th generation processors are released under the code name Rocket Lake. Thanks to the new Cypress Cove architecture, Intel can remove two cores and nevertheless promise higher clock rates with better IPC values. The new lineup is slimmer without a Core-i3, supports DDR4-3200 RAM and scores with PCI-E 4.0. You can find out what the eleventh Intel generation has to offer in this article by my colleague Kevin:
Intel 11th. Gen lineup
As usual from Intel, there's the K-/KF-/F-/T- and the normal version – however, the low-energy T- version is only sold by us on request. In the table below, you can see how the variants differ:
|Free multiplier||internal graphics||reduced energy consumption|
Availability of the chips
If you're following the situation surrounding CPUs, GPUs and the like, you'll know that semiconductors are currently in short supply. Intel is also affected by this. Although there are a few models available in the store at launch, they will probably be sold out very quickly. The bottleneck will most likely last throughout Q2. At least.
The Intel Core i9-11900K should probably be fully reserved over the next few days.

Kevin also tested this budget all rounder from Intel. Check this post out (in German, again):
Intel Z590 motherboard lineup
Intel also offers a new chipset to match the eleventh generation: the Z590. Now including PCI-E 4.0 support. We currently only have the following motherboards in stock, more models will follow bit by bit.
