    I'm surprised this retailer doesn't get sanctioned by the manufacturers somehow. From what I remember this is far from the first time they've ignored release dates, and I believe they've been the source of products behind a few NDA-breaking reviews too?

    I'm sure it is sanctioned by Intel, too bad the results are mediocre at best. I'll wait for an in-depth analysis on AT to see if the improvements are real or just turbo clock tricks.

    It's not just about clock speed - Rocket Lake introduces a new core, after having been stuck on fundamentally the same Skylake core since 2015. How much of an improvement that brings in applications and games is still an open question, largely because Intel already pushed Skylake so hard in terms of clocks and power.

    The downside is that so much of Intel you also need to change the Motherboard all the time instead of plug and play features in a figure of speech, it is seriously what is holding me back from buying Intel for my next highend build.

    Doesn't matter how much you polish a turd, it's still a (hot) turd.

    Ok and why exactly are you mad at them? They gave the consumers what they wanted didnt they?

    I'm not mad at them, having something more or less equivalent to Zen 3 from the other side is great, and that's what they can do at the moment. Doesn't make it any less mediocre. They're lucky AMD is facing supply issues, because nobody would buy it otherwise.

    Oh I get it I thought you were mad at the retailer that they released the CPUs too early. Now i get it and yes understandable.

    HardwareLuxx Editor Andreas Schilling, in a thread about the premature Mindfactory sales, has tweeted that

    "The sales embargo for 11th Gen Desktop processors (Rocket Lake S) is March 30, 2021 at 6 a.m. PT / 9 a.m. ET."
