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...
The wait is on for Intel to launch a round of 10th generation Core processors based on its Comet Lake S architecture, and for its hardware partners to deliver laptops built around its Comet Lake H series. Those are all coming, but if you are wondering when they will arrive, go ahead and circle the middle weeks of March in your calendar. Just be sure to do it in pencil so you can erase it, if need be. To be crystal clear, Intel has not announced a specific launch date—it's only said its OEM partners would deliver Comet lake H laptops soon. When those laptops arrive, the Comet Lake H silicon inside will feature clockspeeds of up to 5GHz and beyond on Core i7, and "even higher clocks on Core... 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...
Only a few days remain in the calendar year, with 2020 looming just around the corner. It's exciting because 2020 figures to be a big year in tech—new graphics cards, new game consoles (at the end of the year), more advancements in VR, and of course new CPUs. As to the latter, Intel will be rolling out its 10th generation Comet Lake-S processors sooner than later. What can we expect from the upcoming parts? To help answer that question, a bevy of leaks and rumors have given us a idea of what Comet Lake-S will entail (unofficially, of course). First, though, let's talk about the nomenclature Intel is using. It can be tough keeping up with the different codenames and nodes. To be clear, Intel... Read more...
Intel is on the verge of releasing a new family of desktop processors, and like many generations that have come before it, Comet Lake-S will be based on venerable 14nm process tech. The latest processor from this upcoming desktop launch has leaked in the form of the Core i5-10600. The Core i5-10600 was spotted running 3DMark, where it is presented as a 6 core/12-thread processor with a base clock of 3.3GHz and a boost clock of 4.7GHz. This particular processor -- which is likely an engineering sample -- was paired to 32GB of RAM. For comparison, the Core i5-9600, which the Core i5-10600 will likely be replacing, has base/boost clocks of 3.1GHz and 4.6GHz respectively. In other words, Intel... Read more...
Intel is assumed to be close to releasing its next-generation Comet Lake-S desktop processors, and while we wait for that day, an interesting entry has been spotted in SiSoftware's SANDRA database. The entry points to a 10th generation processor with 6 cores and 12 threads, and is very like bound for a "Core i5" badge. The entry does not actually specify the model name, only that it is an Intel processor with 6 cores and 12 threads, along with 12MB of L3 cache and 3MB of L2 cache. It also lists the base clockspeed at 2.0GHz—likely because this is an engineering sample and not the final silicon that will ship to retail. While the model name is not listed, it's likely to be a Core i5-10xxx... Read more...
Back in August, we began hearing a lot more about Intel's next-generation Comet Lake-S desktop processors, which will follow hot on the heels of their Comet Lake laptop counterparts. According to our previous reporting, Comet Lake-S will be available in up to 10-core/20-thread SKUs across 35W, 65W and 125W TDP ranges. Today, we're getting detailed information on one new member of the Comet Lake-S family: the Core i3-10100. As its Core i3 designation confirms, this is an entry-level processor, albeit one with 4 cores and HyperThreading enabled (8 threads). According to a SiSoftware database entry originally uncovered by TUM_APISAK, the Core i3-10100 has a base clock of 3.6GHz, a total of... Read more...
As we reported last month, Intel's next-generation Comet Lake-S desktop processors are scheduled to arrive sometime during the first half of 2020. Rather than being based on Intel's new 10nm process tech, Comet Lake-S will be yet another extension of the company's long-running 14nm lithography. Despite the 14nm ties, 10th generation Comet Lake-S desktop processors will reportedly require a new socket (LGA 1200), which means that all-new motherboards will be required. To that end, the folks over at VideoCardz have come across Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) listing for a number of upcoming 400-Series Gigabyte motherboards that seemed destined to accommodate Comet Lake-S....

Trying to keep track of Intel's ever-changing roadmap is no easy task, but if you are curious what the Santa Clara chipmaker has in store for the immediate future, newly leaked slides may provide some clues. Assuming the slides are accurate, Intel is planning to port its Comet Lake architecture over to the desktop in the first quarter of next year. Intel just recently announced a spate of Comet Lake CPUs for laptops, with processors mostly spanning 2-core and 4-core variants, save for a single 6-core/12-thread CPU. At present, there are eight Comet Lake chips in total. Half of those are ultra-low power Y-series CPUs, and the other half are low-power U-series chips. According to the leaked slides,...

Following last week's leak of a supposed Intel roadmap that highlighted the Santa Clara chipmaker's mobile CPU release schedule, another roadmap is now making the rounds, and this time it seemingly reveals Intel's desktop strategy. Of particular interest is Intel's upcoming Comet Lake-S family, which includes CPUs with up to 10 cores and 20 threads. We all owe a tip of the hat to AMD for putting the pressure on Intel to release CPUs with higher core and thread counts into the mainstream sector. Intel has responded to Ryzen with 8-core/16-thread processors comprising its higher-end 9th generation Core family, and looking ahead, more 8-core CPUs are coming, along with 10-core chips in early 2020....

It looks as though Intel is readying a new round of processors with up to 10 cores and 20 threads, based on a breakdown of a recent graphics drivers patches for Linux. The driver code references unreleased Comet Lake desktop CPUs, including dual-core, quad-core, hexa-core, octa-core, and deca-core models. This is not the first we have heard of Comet Lake, or even an accompanying 10-core/20-thread chip from Intel that is rumored to be part of the series. Word of Comet Lake leaked to the web late last year, supposedly originating from a partner meeting. At the time, though, there were not many details to be gleaned. That is actually still true, though at least with driver code in the wild, a launch... Read more...
