MSI and ASRock are already adding BAR to Z-490.

ASRock calls it CAM for clever access memory, lol.

Asus already pushed a bios update for Z490 that includes BAR. Or at least for the Strix Z490-e.

Some juicy new rumors for RKL:
https://www.techpowerup.com/269667/intel-core-i7-rocket-lake-chips-to-be-8-core-12-thread

It looks like the i7 will be an 8/12 part. This seems necessary as the i9 maxes out at 8/16 and the i5 will be a 6/12 part as to compete with the next gen R5.
What's more is that i3 and below may be CML refresh. That raises a lot of questions on i/o. No leaks on core count, but if I were to wager a bet, the i3 would be a 6/6 part so as to compete with the next gen 4/8 R3. Pentiums and Celerons would most likely be lower clock/cache 4/8 and 4/4 parts.

Looks like this slide had some legitimacy aside from the 8/12 in part.

So yeah, 14nm Skylake... in 2021. We will see if AMD actually goes for the budget CPUs.

CES 2021 Intel style.

RKL-S: Not much we didn't know. Lack of B-460 support for 11th gen? They can't be serious.

ICL-Xeon: A running joke on this thread. I will just quote Dr. Cutress "Today Intel is announcing that it has started production, although earlier in the year Intel said it was already ramping production, and other sources tell us that Intel has already launched the hardware, and is shipping to customers? It all got very confusing."

TGL-H: Promises of 8 core but only 4 core products listed.

ADL-S: Something somethings Alder Lake later 2021. You know, Intel's FIRST sub-14 nm desktop part.

Intel is still claiming Alder Lake in September 2021.
https://www.techpowerup.com/277657/intel-alder-lake-s-due-for-september-2021

It has a new socket featuring DDR5. If they actually believe that timeline, why even bother with 6 months of RKL.

Edit: Tiger Lake (mobile) and the much delayed Ice Lake server use the new 10nm Superfin. The chance of Alder Lake getting much of that high demand node is slim to none.
