Is it smart to bash an upcoming CPU line-up, just because it doesn't offer any benefit for you since you have bought your new CPU recently? The fastest model of Rocket Lake series is not that interesting, but rather a curiosity, just like with Comet Lake. They score impressive numbers for sure, but the heat is just crazy while price is not evaluated accordingly. Now, the lesser models like i5-11600K can be pretty good value wise if power consumption doesn't go up from the previous counterpart. I so hope this is the case. The thing is, there are always people upgrading and while Ryzen 5000 series is darn impressive, you cannot get them, especially not the most popular model 5600X. Upcoming stuff with new sockets will come whenever, Alder Lake likely being actually available in early 2022. I'm glad Intel gave up a little bit and made memory overclocking possible on B560 boards. The new B560 boards look pretty decent and I'd actually recommend for many to go for such even though you would buy a K-model CPU, since i5-11600K already is likely so power hungry, that you don't want to raise power consumption. Also you will not likely be able to overclock it that much, just like i5-10600K is already at it's sensible limit at stock. You can overclock yes a little, but with meaningless gain while the power consumption and heat rockets. Much like AMD, Intel has configured their latest CPUs to their limit already at stock, so there is no real value in getting a Z590 board, unless you are a tinkerer. Rocket Lake is an exciting release for many, as the leak of i5-11600K beating i9-10900K in single core performance with only 2133 MHz clocked memory paints a very promising picture. It seems Intel's promise of the IPC gain is true. Only two things could go wrong at this point, which are Intel sensing the silent popularity of Rocket Lake and cranking price to the limit, or seriously bad availability happens again for whatever reason. Let's hope everything goes smoothly and applaud the engineers at Intel achieving even the slightest of gains on the same old architecture and manufacturing process. Seriously, some impressive feats if you ask me, even if AMD is much ahead. To Guru3D: I'm very interested to see reviews of the new mATX boards I'm considering to buy, which are Asrock B560M Steel Legend, MSI B560M Mortar and Asus TUF Gaming B560M Plus. Even a small comparison article on the VRMs would do.
