In the market for a new CPU and sticking with Intel? The 11th Gen Intel Core S-series desktop processors code-named "Rocket Lake-S" have now launched. Designed around Intel's new Cypress Cove architecture, Intel say it's been designed with gaming in mind and "designed to transform hardware and software efficiency and increase raw gaming performance".
You can see this explainer video Intel put out about the newer architecture:
Coming in with support up to DDR4-3200, up to 20 CPU PCIe 4.0 lanes, integrated USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 (20G), and Intel Optane memory H20 with SSD support. Intel say to expect up to 19% "gen-over-gen" IPC (instructions per clock) performance improvement along with up to 50% better integrated graphics performance with Intel UHD graphics featuring Intel Xe graphics architecture. There's also boosts for Deep Learning, Neural Networks and new "enhanced" overclocking tools.
The headliner is the flagship Intel Core i9-11900K, a monster with speeds of up to 5.3GHz with 8 cores and 16 threads. Here's all the different processors in the new line-up starting with the top end:
