    Rocket Lake desktop CPUs will arrive first, but Intel had already announced in the summer that the next generation “Alder Lake” will follow in autumn 2021. This desktop CPU is based on a hybrid ar...

    Considering how drastically different this is, isn't it time Intel stop naming things after lakes?

    lol how about ponds?
    But seriously, look at their naming scheme throughout their history. They stuck to a certain theme to connotate generational advancements for otherwise similar products (Sandy Bridge vs Ivy Bridge, Prescott vs Northwood, Bay Trail vs Cherry Trail, etc). All of the lakes since Skylake made sense, because there were hardly any major differences to the architecture for all these years, and they were all on 14nm. But Alder Lake is one of the biggest changes in Intel's lineup since the original i7. For something that's such a big deal, it should have a big name change.

    Depends if Alder Lake is compatible with the 400 series MB's or not.

    They are making it so buying the current chips is near useless if you want the “fastest” or if you have deep pockets at least.
