You might be forgiven for thinking Intel Rocket Lake CPUs were released over at CES 2021 given all the talk of performance, specs, and compatible Z590 motherboards at the digital tech show, but we're actually looking at 'Q1 2021' availability in earnest for Intel's latest desktop gaming CPUs. Which actually means March. These 11th Generation chips, known by their codename Rocket Lake to most, mark a departure from the DNA of the past five generations of Core CPUs. Whereas we're used to the same Skylake derivative architecture within even the most recent 10-core/20-thread processor, the Intel Core i9 10900K , the 11th Gen will house the Cypress Cove architecture. Cypress Cove is something of a blended architecture: a little bit of the Ice Lake, a pinch of Intel Xe, and served chilled over the 14nm process node.

Having the possibility of different Mass Effect endings is one of the big draws of this series, as the decisions you make during your journey will affect how the storyline concludes. Although this is partly based on whether you followed a mainly good (Paragon) or bad (Renegade) path, there are also some specific choices when you reach the finale that directly impact which outcome you'll get. If you're starting the Mass Effect Legendary Edition from the beginning then it pays to know what resolutions you can work towards, especially as this result carries over to the sequel and therefore has a longer term impact.As we said before, the Paragon or Renegade groundwork you lay as you progress through the game will have an effect on the outcome to a degree.
