The new silicons from AMD are generally expected to take things a notch higher in terms of competition, and even undercut the current 10th Gen Comet Lake CPUs from Intel when it comes to both performance and maybe even price. 

    The upcoming CPUs are expected to share the same motherboard socket as current Comet Lake CPUs and be compatible, hardware manufacturers have already teased PCIe 4.0 support built into existing 400-series motherboards. 

    Rocket Lake is also expected to support Thunderbolt 4 and Wi-Fi 6, along with Intel's new Xe integrated graphics. Other reports suggest that the new Rocket Lake processors will be fabricated using a 14nm process that Intel has been using for a while now.
