WePC Where to buy 11th gen CPUs 01

Speculation over Intel’s latest CPU lineup is coming to an end but when Rocket Lake is released will it be enough to shift focus away from AMD? The Intel Core 11th-gen CPU launch is the next big event for the PC enthusiast but if it is plagued by the same stock issues we saw at the back-end of 2020 it could be another disastrous day for the manufacturer. Today, we are looking at where to buy the highly anticipated 11th-gen processors, while also checking out the specifications, release dates, prices, and pre order options.

Let’s take a look.

Intel 11th-Gen Specifications

Intel 11th-Gen Series Release Date

There is still no official release date for the Intel 11th-gen series just yet but they are expected to come out in quarter one of 2021.

Intel 11th-Gen Series Price & Pre Order

While the pricing of the Intel 11th-gen processors is unknown at this stage, we can draw some conclusions based on the current 10th-gen lineup.

The current 10th-gen i9-10900 retails for around $479.99, while the K variant retails for $50 more at $529.99 and we cant see Intel exceeding this. With the i9 expected to retail around the $450-$500 mark, we can expect the i7 variant to be around $350. With the i5-11600(K), we can expect a similar price to the older-gen model of around $260-$300 for these two variants. The non-K version could retail closer to $200 but we are going to have to wait and see closer to the time. Lastly, one of Intel’s budget options – the i5-11400, is expected to cost between $150-$200.

We expect Intel to price their processors to compete with AMD but traditionally Intel has always been more expensive.
