I don’t know if you remember that after Intel’s 10th generation processor came into the market, there was a rumor that the motherboard supported the PCI 4.0 channel, which could be turned on as long as the BIOS was swiped. But it was finally proved that it was just a misunderstanding, so the Intel platform still supports the 3.0 version of the PCI channel.
However, with the gradual emergence of the advantages of the pci4.0 channel and the adoption of the new generation of graphics cards and game consoles, Intel has finally put down its insistence and will support pci4.0 channel on the new generation of 11 generation processor rocket Lake processor, and will launch the corresponding 500 chipset motherboard at the same time.
According to the disclosure of foreign media, they have received some packaging of the main board (z590) of the 500 chipset. The packaging box has been pasted with the label of “the Intel rocket Lake desktop processor supports the pci4.0 channel”. In other words, if players want to experience the pci4.0 channel, they must use the main board of the 500 chipset with the 11th generation processor at the same time.
A part of the appearance of ASUS Rog maximus XIII motherboard on display in a certain media will use Intel z590 chipset if not unexpected.
On many levels, Intel will come up with this move on the motherboard. In fact, it’s not too unexpected. After all, the 11th generation processor uses the ancestral 14nm + + In theory, as long as you brush the BIOS, you can be directly compatible with the existing 400 chipset motherboard. If you can also painlessly open the pci4.0, wouldn’t you like your own 10th generation products?
It’s only recently revealed that the control of PCI 4.0 is only designed in the processor itself, and the chipset itself only supports 3.0 channels. Therefore, it’s quite worthwhile to see whether it will be beaten by some advanced manufacturers after its launch.
In addition, some media added that they have also received the product model list of the 11th generation processor. As expected, the 11th generation processor will have core i9, i7, i5, I3, Pentium and Celeron series, among which only core I family can support PCI 4.0 channel. After all, Pentium and Celeron are not oriented to high performance, and naturally they do not need the blessing of high-speed channel. Moreover, they are still classified by Intel as the 10th generation comet Lake family rather than the latest rocket lake.
