Intel’s Rocket Lake is headed to the launch pad, and it couldn’t come at a better time. AMD’s Zen architecture has thundered into the desktop PC market, steadily taking chunks of market share in a segment long dominated by Intel. Now AMD is on the cusp of releasing its Zen 3 chips, upping the ante in the suddenly brutally competitive desktop PC market. 

Intel’s response will come in the form of Rocket Lake, but unlike the forward progress we see with the company’s 10nm Tiger Lake chips for laptops, the chips are 14nm’s last hurrah on the desktop. That marks the seventh and final iteration of the longest-lived leading-edge node in Intel’s history.
