THEY’ve done it, FINALLY THEY’ve Done it, Intel has Officially unveiled their Rocket Lake 11th Gen desktop processors, and there's no real surprises when it comes to the specs since well, they've been getting slowly leaked out for what seems like a year.
HOWEVER, what is kinda unexpected is the pricing! It's Kind of LOW, mostly, and specifically when compared to AMD. Now Intel is probably being a little ambitious by pricing their flagship 11900K at $539 USD. I mean sure, it’s 10$ lower than the 5900X but the AMD counterpart has 4 more cores and 8 more threads So yeah,that's just Intel being Intel. Or maybe they’re taking advantage pf the fact that the 5900X is very hard to find, who knows.
but going back to the list while the top of the line chips might be a little overpriced, everything down the line is looking pretty interesting. The 11700K has an MSRP of just $399, which is a solid $50 cheaper than the 5800X. And if you don't need the integrated GPU then you can save another $25 with the i7-11700KF model.
