Intel announces Rocket Lake-S processors, 11th gen Core H for gaming at CES 2021

At CES 2021, Intel took to the online stage to show off its latest families of processors, looking to stay strong as stiff competition from AMD and even Apple loom in the not-too-far distance.

Its biggest processors are the 11th Gen H-series and the Rocket Lake–S desktop chips — both of which promise big gaming gains. This is how Intel seeks to move forward and build on the Intel Evo platform and Tiger Lake 11th Gen chips from 2020, and it’s good to see Intel deliver a strong lineup.
