Intel adds the possibility of overlocking memory with H570 and B560 motherboards.
Intel is doing everything possible to make Rocket Lake-S processors a minimal option to be considered when renewing or buying a new computer this year, and for that, it is doing things unthinkable, such as allowing overclocking of RAM on motherboards with “non Z” chipsets like the H570 and B560 mid-range, a clear move that seeks to match the forces with what users can find on the AMD platform.

This way, motherboards with Intel H570 and B560 chipsets will only lack CPU overclocking, but at least users who want to build an economical computer with a motherboard with a mid-range chipset and processors from an Intel Core i5 will be able to use RAM above 2666 MHz (Core i3, Pentium or Celeron are limited to a maximum speed of 2666 MHz).
On the other hand, motherboard manufacturers, such as ASRock, will surely allow overclocking the CPU using the BCLK, that is, increasing the processor base frequencies, so these platforms are gaining much more interest, although of course, the prices will be the ones that decide whether it is worth buying an Intel configuration in this 2021 or not.
