We have just received new information about the premiere of new Intel HEDT processors, for which we have been waiting for a long time. This time, unofficial details were brought to us by one of the Chiphell forum users, who in the past shared both a photo of the Intel LGA1700 socket and a photo of the Z690 chipset to the world.
Intel’s Sapphire Rapids HEDT processors will debut in Q3 2022 with W790 chipsets
In fact, this mystery guy who reveals something he definitely shouldn’t have now has more information on the upcoming Alder Lake, Sapphire Rapids-X, and Raptor Lake franchises. According to them, Intel will release its W790 chipset for the high-end desktop (HEDT) family in the third quarter of 2022, simultaneously with the launch of the 13th generation Raptor Lake processors (Alder Lake successors).

This belies the current reports, according to which the X699 chipset would debut alongside Alder Lake. This one would replace a few years old X299, but in reality it will not be created at all. His role will be taken over by Intel W790, which, according to rumors, will debut together with HEDT Sapphire Rapids processors.
