Best Intel Motherboards: February 2020

Moving into the holiday season for many, Intel recently unveiled details about its Rocket Lake (11th Gen) processors set to come out in Q1 2021. With it will come a new wave of 500-series motherboards, and hopefully confirmation from vendors about which models will support PCIe 4.0 natively. This means we’re going to be in a bit of a mix when it comes to 400-series vs 500-series, and it will all depend on how the 500-series is rolled out to the market and what sort of excitement there will be as Intel moves down from 10 cores at the high-end to eight cores. Nonetheless, at present we have to focus on the current selection of motherboards for enthusiasts and performance users looking to build a new Intel-based desktop system.
