Intel has finally launched its 11th-generation Rocket Lake processors, and while they’re not very good – the Intel Core i9-11900K is slower than the i9-10900K in many tests – there are benefits that the entire computing world is going to start feeling in the very near future.
And, really the biggest of these is going to be faster SSDs. With Rocket Lake, Intel has finally baked in PCIe 4.0 support into its desktop processors, which finally means that both current-generation mainstream desktop platforms now support the technology. And, of course, with industry-wide support, we’re going to start seeing SSDs that can really push it to the limit.
