Hot on the heels of the 500 Series, word has it that the upcoming Intel Alder Lake-S CPUs and their accompanying 600 Series chipsets are set to launch in September. This would fit the bill as a normal Fall launch window for new Intel chips to be sure, but it makes the Rocket Lake-S and 500 Series look less shiny and new. One benefit to 500 Series buyers is that the price premium for Alder Lake-S platforms could be massive. Rumored to come with PCIe 5, and support DDR5, these two factors alone will crank up the prices. Rocket Lake-S and the 500 Series may look all the better come this September. Lest we forget, AMD is likely not far being on either of these fronts.
