Intel has confirmed that the official released date for their next-gen CPU family, codenamed Rocket Lake-S will be March 30th. In Intel’s statement to HardwareLuxx they did confirm that German retailer Mindfactory has been selling 11th Gen Core processors before they have been officially released. Intel did not say whether the retailer was directly responsible for breaking the embargo or if the mistake was made higher up on the supply chain level.
We take our embargo agreements seriously. We are aware of a retailer selling unreleased products and are following up as appropriate.
We cannot comment on particular actions taken by retailers. We have ongoing discussions with partners which are confidential as part of our policy. We take our embargo agreements seriously and are following up as appropriate.
