Intel Is Retiring Its 11th Gen Core “Rocket Lake” CPUs

Intel is now beginning the end-of-life process for its 11th Gen Core series. Earlier this week, Intel issued a “Product Change Notice” to inform us of upcoming changes. This affects various desktop and workstation CPUs based on this architecture.

The discontinuation process started on February 6th, but that doesn’t mean Intel has already pulled the plug from the 11th Gen series. This process will take several months, in this case a year, before the final shipping date for these CPUs (23rd February 2024).

The company has already switched to a new platform. The 11th Gen processor offered 8 cores and 16 threads with a boost clock of 5.3 GHz. It was also the first CPU to offer Thermal Velocity Boost. Intel is starting his EOL process for its Xeon workstation series based on the same architecture, along with the 11th Gen Core-S. Additionally, the Intel 400 and 500 series chipsets are also listed. This means that next year’s Intel desktop products will be based exclusively on the LGA1700 series and beyond.
