MSI H410 supports Rocket Lake-S

MSI Infinite B915 pre-built system’s manual confirms Rocket Lake-S support on entry-level H410 motherboard. The specifications listed in the file clearly confirm that the H410 motherboard supports Rocket Lake-S chips up to 65W TDP.

The support for 400-series motherboards is hardly a secret at this point, multiple sources have already confirmed it. The upcoming Rocket Lake-S architecture (11th Gen Core series) will be socket-compatible with existing 400-series motherboards, the leak confirms. So far it was only confirmed that the Z490 series would support the new CPUs, as motherboard makers have loudly advertised PCI-Express 4.0 hardware readiness. Meanwhile, the PCIe 4.0 support is already confirmed for Rocket Lake-S processors.

The 400-series motherboards only support Comet Lake-S processors (10th Gen Core), but with the launch of Rocket Lake-S, the support list will be extended. It is unclear how both series will be marketed, as Intel Rocket Lake-S is not expected to feature more cores than Comet Lake-S. In fact, the flagship Rocket Lake-S chip is expected to only offer 8 cores and 16 threads.

Intel Rocket Lake-S will feature a new Willow Cove core architecture and Gen12 integrated Xe Graphics. The series is expected to launch in early 2021.
