"Namely, these motherboards will have native support for PCIe 4.0, something that was missing from Comet Lake-S – even though AMD-equipped motherboards have been compatible with this technology since mid-2019. Intel Rocket Lake-S will also natively support faster memory – up to DDR4-3200 from DDR4-2933."

Yawn. Only reason to buy this outdated junk is if you can't get any AMD xD

This should breathe life into Intel's consumer market share from DIY'ers looking to build a platform with PCIe 4.0, so as long as AMD processors remain scarce (as long as Intel doesn't blunder their supply volume, as well).

Late to the party? Sure. Arriving in the nick of time? Absolutely.


Alas, I think I'm way more interested in Intel's Meteor Lake or Luna Lake, as long as one/both make the move to PCIe 5.0 and DDR5+.
