Intel’s new Z590 motherboards to launch next month?

Chinese news outlet published a short article on social media platform WeChat, alleging that Intel’s 500 series motherboards will be announced on January 11th, the same day Intel hosts a CES 2021 press conference.

The company is expected to release (actual word use by the source) three motherboards series including Z590, B560, and H510. All three chipsets will be officially announced and released by Intel on the same day, the story claims.

The 500-series motherboards are likely the last DDR4 motherboards from Intel. The series is to feature an LGA1200 socket compatible with the 10th Gen Core Comet Lake-S series and the upcoming 11th Gen Core Rocket Lake-S.

Intel Rocket Lake-S end of February or early March

According to the same article, Intel has not yet set a firm date for the launch of the new Rocket Lake series. The site claims, however, that the 11th Gen Core series could launch either end of February or early March. It was previously rumored that the series would launch in March alongside the new motherboards, but it appears that the release date has not been set yet.

It is unclear why Intel would allegedly launch its next-gen motherboards series ahead of the new CPUs. Especially considering that the series is to be Intel’s first fully capable PCIe 4.0 series, as not all 400-series were hardware-ready for the new interface standard. The core feature of the new chipset will not be utilized until Rocket Lake-S CPUs will become available.
