Intel 下一代主板芯片Z690 预计2021年Q4 发布接口 LGA 1700 socket
正规配合12xxx 1３代 cpu的 Z790芯片组 预计2022 Q3发布
Expected launch dates of next-generation Intel and AMD platforms have been reported by Uniko's Hardware's editor. Based on the information, Intel and AMD are definitely getting things ready for their next-generation Core and Ryzen series CPUs.
Rumored Release Dates For Next-Gen Intel Platforms Have Been Revealed - Z690 For Alder Lake Later This Year, Z790 For Raptor Lake &
Intel users will be getting a taste of the next-generation platform within this year while AMD users will have to wait for a bit till next year. Each platform will get a range of chipsets aimed at high-end, mainstream, and budget consumers. The rumor reports that the Intel 600-series chipset platform will consist of Z690, B660, and H610 SKUs.

Intel 600-Series Platform For 12th Gen Alder Lake CPUs
The Intel 600-series platform will comprise Z690, B660, and H610 SKUs. There's no mention of the workstation chipset but that may come later on. As for the launch, the Z690 flagship SKU will be the first to hit the market and is aiming for Q4 2021. That is also when we can start expecting to see the DDR5 memory in retail outlets. The Intel 600-series platform will also be compliant with PCIe 5.0 as we reported here.
Moving forward, Intel plans to expand its 600-series platform with mainstream & entry-level SKUs such as B660 and H610. These chipsets are aiming for a launch around Q1 2022 so we can expect an announcement around CES 2022. All motherboards will feature the LGA 1700 socket to support 12th Gen Alder Lake CPUs but it looks like the Z690 motherboards are the only ones that might get DDR5 support while the entry-level options might stick with DDR4, at least for the first generation.
Intel 700-Series Platform For 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPUs
Moving over to Intel's 700-series platform, it is reported that the first motherboards are expected to be introduced around Q3 2022. That's a full three quarters after 600-series and also a similar to-shelve launch plan as the 500-series platform. While 700-series platforms will retain most features of the 600-series platform, they are expected to offer increased I/O. I personally believe the biggest change will be bringing DDR5 to more mainstream options and better PCIe 5.0 support though that remains to be seen.
