    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.

    There isnt any stock issues with 5600x get your facts straight. There is a price problem.

    which is 50% amd's high msrp and 50% stock
    they're always in stock here cause they are just not being bought when 10600kf is half the price

    Here in Norway:
    5600x in stock a few places, but 700 NOK more than normal price.

    5800x in stock in every shop for normal price. Noone want's it here.

    5900x and 5950x is sold out everywhere, and backorder is pretty big.

    The stock issue is different in different countries :)

    For those who keep throwing Ryzen round, have a read here:
    https://community.amd.com/t5/proces...a-logger-id/m-p/449701/highlight/false#M38718

    This is something I haven't come across in Intel CPU's and I've have a few Intel top tier CPU's for the last 10 years including HEDT's.
    I recently RMA'd a 5900x after 2 weeks when it threw WHEA errors and hard resets out of nowhere, again something I haven't seen in Intel cpu's.

    Seems I'm not the only one going off that thread on AMD's own site.

    maybe it's not the cpu but b550/x570 ? those are bugged too.

    Could be, but whatever it is, there's at least 2 new posts every day of new people having the same problem, with no acknowledgement from AMD and people RMAing their CPU's.

    But again it's something I've never needed to deal with using Intel systems.

    i gotta be honest with you,if I kept having one-two bsods a day which persisted after rma I would probably just return this pos,buy a r3000,trade ipc and frequency for more cores and stability.

    or get yrself a 3800x,half 5900x price literally.lock it to 4.4-4.5 allcore,throw in some b-die sticks,there are many very well priced kits,like my vipers.Get them to run 3800,tighten timings,and for gaming you're set for a couple of years at least.and you're still getting pci-e 4.0.
    my go-to cpu testing site, ppc.pl, has a setup like that and they're pushing a 3090 with it just fine even at 1080p,check it out.

    I'm not even discusing prices . I'm just saying if you want one there is one not just one you can buy 1000 of these tomorrow if you like.

    And yet I get exactly the same 3D Mark scores on the 10900k/RTX 3090 as I did with the 5900x, it's already been proven pcie gen 4 over gen 3 for gpu's are negligible, down to a margin of error.
    But now with z590 and 11th gen you have PCIe gen 4.

    From my past 2 experiences with x570 (also had a 3900x when they first dropped, buggy as then too) I'll take stability and reliability over core count any day, thats what Intel provides, always will.
    No messing around to get a cpu stable while running stock like AMD.

    This replacement 10900k will do me until the next lga revision.

    Just find it funny when Intel news threads are flooded with AMD "fans" when there are clearly still major problems in the platform, cpu's or bios's.

    Αnd I find it funny that as we get closer to the introduction of the Intel 11000 series the AMD platform is getting more and more problems, first it was the supposed hardware failure of the processors and now the problem with the motherboards,in other news Opera Snapshot_2021-02-21_224734_technosports.co.in.png Opera Snapshot_2021-02-21_224510_browser.geekbench.com.png

    The processor failure rate has been debunked.

    There seems to be a problem with USB2 disconnect on the 5 series boards.

    There is already bios update for that.

    My main system ASUS DARK HERO X570, plus I had ASUS ROG E X570 , no issues at all with 5950X, back in November on my ASUS PRIME X470 with a 5800X and 5950X ,six BIOS [BETA] updates later is running fine .
