We've been hearing quite a bit about Intel's Comet Lake-H family of mobile processors in recent months, but only with respect to the chips aimed at the consumer market. Today, however, information is coming down the pipeline regarding Comet Lake-H mobile chis that are part of the Xeon family. In this case, reliable leaker momomo_us has uncovered references to two Xeon processors: the Xeon W-10855M and the Xeon W-10885M. Given the cache configurations of the processors, it's expected that the former will be a 6-core/12-thread design, while the latter will employ 8 cores and 16 threads. Furthermore, the listing suggests that the Xeon W-10855M and Xeon W-10885M will have turbo clocks of... Read more...
Motherboard makers can ill afford to let their foot off the gas pedal, not when there are now chipsets on the horizon. Intel is readying its Z490 chipset for its upcoming Comet Lake-S processors, while AMD is apparently prepping a B550 chipset for its Ryzen 3000 series. Meanwhile, Gigabyte is locked and loaded for both launches. Starting with the Z490 chipset, several Gigabyte-brand models were spotted at the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) website back in September. They included the following models... Z490 Aorus Elite Z490 D Z490 Gaming X Z490 UD Z490 White Z490M Z490M DS3H Z490M Gaming X Since then, there have been several new models listed at the EEC, including a few more that just showed...

We've been hearing plenty of leaks regarding Intel's next-generation Comet Lake-S desktop processor family and its supporting Z490 chipset. The rumored flagship of the family is the Core i9-10900K, which is still based on the 14nm process node. This time around, the Core i9-10900K is making another appearance through the leak channels via 3DMark. Once again spotted by _rogame on Twitter, the 3DMark results shows a processor filled with 20MB of cache along with 10 cores/20 threads. However, the benchmark also reveals some new information, like a reported base clock of 3.7GHz. There's also a single-core turbo clock of 5.1GHz (single-core). And finally :D i9-10900K 10C/20T 3.7GHz... Read more...
Intel's next-generation of desktop processors will be based on its Comet Lake architecture, which is yet another entry in the company's 14nm lineage. Although we don't have a definite launch date in sight for the processors, the requisite motherboards for the platform are already making their presence known. As you may already know, Comet Lake-S uses a new socket (LGA 1200), which means that customers will need to use new 400-Series motherboards. Thanks to the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), we now know the names of MSI's entire Z490 motherboard lineup that will launch alongside Comet Lake-S. According to the EEC, this is the full lineup: Z490-A PRO Creator Z490I MPG Z490M GAMING EDGE... Read more...
We're coming close to the end of the line for Intel's 14nm process technology, which has been underpinning its mainstream, enthusiast, and server processors for years. Perhaps one of the final hurrahs for 14nm++ on the consumer desktop side will be Comet Lake-S, which will use Z490 motherboards along with the new LGA-1200 socket. However, according to a new report from ComputerBase, while manufacturers of Z490 motherboards are ready to go with a full-scale launch, Intel isn't quite ready to sign off on its Comet Lake-S processors. If the report is to be believed, Intel is running into problems with power consumption. The Core i9-10900K is the rumored flagship of the Comet Lake-S... Read more...
CES 2020 is just kicking off, and Intel is making the rounds with some new product releases that are sure to entice on-the-go gamers and content creation types out there. The company announced that its OEM partners will soon be shipping laptop systems powered by 10th Generation Comet Lake-H processors. These Comet Lake-H processors are rated with TDPs of up to 45 watts, and are still based on Intel's 14nm++ microarchitecture. This announcement is targeted at beefing-up the top-end of Intel's dominant mobile CPU stack as AMD readies its Ryzen 4000 series offering for announcement later today. For now, details surrounding these new chips are a bit thin at this point but there are some high... Read more...
The ThinkPad brand is one of the most storied in business laptops, and Lenovo is delivering some key upgrades at CES 2020 to kick off the new year. The company has announced updates to both the ThinkPad X1 Carbon and the ThinkPad X1 Yoga, now in their 8th and 5th generations, respectively. The new ThinkPad X1 Carbon and ThinkPad X1 Yoga are certified for Intel's Project Athena initiative, which dictates strict parameters on wake performance and battery life. The big changes this time around are an all-new 14-inch FHD touch panel rated for 500 nits, which also happens to include an AG PrivacyGuard filter. There continue to be 400-nit FHD panels available (touch and non-touch) along... Read more...
Earlier this morning, Dell announced its all-new XPS 13 ultraportable, but that's not all that the company has to offer. It has also pulled the wraps off the brand-new Latitude 9510 family, which is a business-class 15-inch notebook/2-in-1 that is powered by Intel 10th generation Core processors. With the Latitude 9510, Dell has further trimmed the bezels, giving users fewer visual distractions to the vibrant 15-inch InfinityEdge display. Since the Latitude 9510 is available in traditional laptop and 2-in-1 configurations, there are two display options presented to customers. The former gets a 15-inch FHD anti-glare panel, while the latter features a 15-inch FHD touch display covered... Read more...
In case you've been living under a rock, then you know that Intel has a new family of desktop processors on the way developed under the codename Comet Lake. These Comet Lake-S processors are still built on 14nm process tech (which has been refined again, and again) and will use the new LGA-1200 socket, which will require new motherboards. With that being said, a new internal Intel doc has leaked onto the web, and it is giving us a bit of insight into the flagship for the upcoming Comet Lake-S family: the Core i9-10900K. As you might surmise from its naming, the Core i9-10900K will replace the Core i9-9900K in Intel's lineup. However, unlike its predecessor, which is an 8-core/16-thread... Read more...
Earlier this month, we received sneak peeks at Intel's upcoming Frost Canyon family of NUC 10 Mini PCs. The first leak gave us a listing of all of the upcoming SKUs, while the second leak gave us a look at the slightly refreshed chassis design. Today, however, Intel has officially pulled the wraps off its NUC 10 family, confirming all of the previous leaks (hat tip to FanlessTech). All of the NUC 10 PCs are using Intel's new Comet Lake-U processors, which were first announced over the summer. Comet Lake-U is still built on the latest version of Intel's long-running 14nm process node and is available in Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 flavors for the NUC 10 family. The specific...

Intel might have new Frost Canyon NUCs waiting in the wings, but MSI is ready to deliver right now with the latest update to its Cubi family of small form factor PCs. The newest entry is the Cubi 5 10M, which is backed by Intel's 10th generation Comet Lake processors. Like Intel's NUC family, the Cubi 5 10M is diminutive in stature, measuring just 4.9" x 4.9" x 2.1". Access to the inside of the PC is made possible by four screws on the bottom of the chassis; after which the entire bottom panel can be removed. From there, you'll have direct access to install a 2.5-inch HDD/SSD, or an M.2 SSD. Both SO-DIMM (DDR4-2666 supported up to 64GB) slots are also directly available for... Read more...
Over the weekend, we reported that Intel has a new family of NUC small form factor PCs on the horizon with Comet Lake-U processors. The leak pointed out a number of SKUs with Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 processor options available for customers. Today, one of our favorite leakers, momomo_us, managed to find quite a few images detailing Intel's new "Frost Canyon" NUCs. Looking at these images, we're not seeing a drastic design overhaul with Frost Canyon; the chassis design still looks very familiar to those that have been following Intel's NUC family over the years -- including the most recent Coffee Lake-powered offerings.  The biggest change that we spy is on the front panel,...

We have been hearing about Intel's upcoming desktop Comet Lake processors for quite some time now, and with there already being mobile variants—we previewed the performance of one in a Dell XPS 13 system rocking a Core i7-10710U CPU—it's a safe bet these new CPUs won't be scrapped. Next year is when they will likely arrive. In the meantime, a new leaks highlights several upcoming SKUs, including a model with 10 cores and 20 threads. In case you have not been following (or have gotten lost in a sea of codenames and manufacturing nodes), let's talk a bit about the Comet Lake architecture. Intel is labeling its Comet Lake CPUs as being 10th generation parts. Even so, they are yet another... Read more...
