    Well RL is a Lower core count than previous gen , so ,in theory inherently easier on VRMs @ the same power , unless it runs lower voltages

    Judging by early reports of thermals, that's very unlikely. :lol:

    Its the Texas conundrum really - dont have enough power to run them but desperately need the heat output..........

    Big fan. Even their lower spec ones still look good too. Looking at the pic it's got 4x m.2 which is fecking lovely.

    A quick look at the power usage seems really low? Unless i misread it. I was expecting it to be Intel levels of stupid power usage.

    EDIT: Nope, i was wrong. That was pump power usage. Total of 200w. There we go :lol:

    It's a tad more complicated then that.

    I'd say it'll be different when the new chipset drops next year.

    I'll be running a 980 in M2_1 and a pair of SX8200's in M2_3 and M2_4.

    I'll be able to add another M.2/pcie SSD to the third pcie slot and then if I really wanted I could drop the GPU to x8 and add another gen4 drive in M2_2.

    I'd lose all SATA ports BUT I haven't used SATA since the 950 pro was released personally.

    i cant help but feel a bit miffed about the 400 series chipset situation... shortest lived chipset ever.

    traditionally you get 2 CPU generations per socket and the first gen chipsets would still support the following gen CPU but intel just went and created an artificial roadblock for non H/Z board owners. Z board owners also seemed to have spotty support.

    Wait, Z490 boards are unsupported by the 11 series? Well that sucks.

    I saw overnight some shop in Germany accidentally dropped the 11700k up for sale, apparently a month premature....I saw a few guys on iRacing chat about it, performance for that one on-par with the 5800x, if they are to be believed...

    Will see if I can find out a bit more....

    Intel Core i7-11700K on sale early
    Mindfactory already offering Core i7-11700K.


    The retailer is currently offering Core i7-11700K “Rocket Lake-S” processor ahead of launch. The page is not a preorder, and the item can be purchased directly. The Core i7-11700K is an unlocked processor that has not yet been officially introduced by Intel. Well, as it turns out that Mindvactory already has the CPU in stock.

    The Core i7-11700K is an 8-core and 16-thread CPU that will offer full PCI Gen4 support, newer Cypress Cove architecture, and more importantly.. a new packaging. The packaging alone confirms that this is not a placeholder, but an actual retail Rocket Lake-S CPU.

    The processor has been put on sale for 469 EUR, which is 152 EUR more than Core i7-10700K listed in the same store. The price of 11700K nearly matches the current flagship (10900K) which costs 473 EUR. The price includes 19% German VAT.

    Intel is now expected to introduce its 11th Gen Core series on March 16th, with reviews and sales now planned for March 30th.
