Are we enjoying the Chip Wars of 2020 yet? Things are just getting started, folks. AMD is talking a big game about Zen 3 and its Ryzen 5000 series, which will debut to retail next week. More than just lip service, multiple leaks suggest AMD has a real winner on its hands. This is evidenced yet again in a validated CPU-Z run underscoring the potential performance of the Ryzen 7 5800X. The Ryzen 7 5800X is one of four announced Zen 3 processors for the consumer desktop segment. It is only second from the rear, ahead of one other CPU and behind two higher end models, yet appears to pack quite the punch. Before we get to the performance figures and how it compares to Intel, let's have a quick rundown... Read more...
In absolutely no uncertain terms, AMD claims its Ryzen 5000 desktop processors are the fastest gaming CPUs in the world," a distinction that Intel has held onto for a long time. The company is also claiming a hefty 19 percent IPC (instructions per clock) uplift over its Zen 2 stack. If you are worried it is just a bunch of lip service, you might be encouraged by PassMark's updated CPU Mark rankings, which show Zen 3 sitting on top in single-threaded performance. More specifically, the lowest end (so far) Zen 3 CPU, the Ryzen 5 5600X, leads the way with the highest benchmark score, as of this writing. AMD's other Zen 3 CPUs will undoubtedly leapfrog the Ryzen 5 5600X once they find their way to... Read more...
If you are in the market for an Intel Core i9-10900K processor, good luck finding one that is (A) in-stock and (B) not selling for an inflated price tag by a marketplace seller. While that is a tricky challenge, you can find the Core i9-10850K in-stock right now—it is listed for $499.99 on Newegg, with an estimated delivery time of August 24 (if purchased today). Intel has been contending with a shortage of silicon for its Core i9-10900K, making the 10-core/20-thread CPU difficult to find at its regular $549.99 price (or $529 at Walmart). On Newegg, for example, it is listed for $875.99 by a marketplace seller (3C Expert). Adding insult to injury, that is supposed to represent a sale price,... Read more...
Intel's Core i9-10900K is a beastly processor that flexes 10 physical CPU cores and 20 threads clocked at 3.7GHz to 5.3GHz, along with 20MB of Smart Cache, all wrapped in a package with a 125W TDP. Our review of the Core i9-10900K covered usage temps and overclocking performance when paired with an ASUS Maximus XII Hero WiFi motherboard and Corsair H80i v2 all-in-one liquid cooler. That's not exactly a pedestrian setup. Nevertheless, there is always a push in the enthusiast community to take things further, and one way to do that is by delidding. Delidding is the process of ripping off the integrated heatspreader (IHS), which is the large hunk of metal that sets on top of the CPU. It's there... Read more...
Intel’s Core i9-10900K is no doubt an impressive chip, made even more impressive by the fact that the company has been able to achieve 5GHz+ turbo clocks in a 10-core design using 14nm process tech well past its “freshness” date. We posted our review of the chip earlier today and we were able to get the chip to 5.3GHz across all 10 cores with a Corsair H80i AIO liquid cooler. But a 5.3GHz all-core overclock is small potatoes compared to famed overclocker Elmor, who was able to hit 7.7GHz (7707.62MHz to be exact) across all 10 cores. For reference, the base clock of the Comet Lake-S based Core i9-10900K is 3.7GHz, so this represented a whopping 4GHz overclock.... Read more...
A few weeks back, Intel officially announced its 10th Generation Core series processors based on the Comet Lake-S architecture, and its companion Z490 chipset. 10th Gen Core series processors are not all-new, HEDT (High-End Desktop) products that target extreme enthusiasts, but rather tweaked, tuned, and enhanced mainstream parts, meant to supplants 9th Gen Socket 1151-based processors at the heart of Intel’s mainstream CPU line-up. Intel’s 10th Gen Core series desktop processors are still based on the same architecture and leverage the same 14nm++ manufacturing process as their 9th Gen predecessors, but Intel has made numerous changes in an attempt to inject even more performance,...

It's been almost a week since Intel formally introduced its 10th generation Core processors for the desktop (Comet Lake-S), and later this month, the launch will be accompanied by reviews and actual retail availability. In the meantime, we still have to rely on leaks to catches glimpses of what Comet Lake-S will be capable of when it lands. As it pertains to that, Intel's flagship Core i9-10900K has (supposedly) been shown running at 5.4GHz. This comes by way of a screenshot posted to China's Baidu forum, and unfortunately, the post has since been deleted. However, Twitter user G2 OldSKol managed to save a copy and upload it to Twitter. The image shows the chip running at 5.4GHz (via CPU-Z) and... Read more...
Another day, another leak related to Intel's upcoming Comet Lake-S series. This latest one pertains to the Core i9-10900K, the top dog in the Comet Lake-S stack (based on past rumors), which apparently got benchmarked while nestled inside an ASRock Z490M Pro4 motherboard based on Intel's also-unreleased Z490 chipset. The Core i9-10900K is equipped with 10 cores and 20 threads of computing muscle. It has a 3.7GHz clock and 5.1GHz single-core boost clock, or 5.3GHz via Thermal Velocity Boost (TVB), which is an extra nudge for setups with burlier cooling solutions to handle the higher clockspeed (and subsequent rise in thermals). It also has 20MB of total cache and a 125W TDP. Twitter user and prominent... Read more...
Someday and perhaps even this year (hopefully), Intel will launch desktop processors in volume that are based on 10-nanometer manufacturing. Until then, Intel continues to tweak its 14nm node. As is relates to that, Comet Lake-S will be shipping soon, which will presumably includes a Core i9-10900K CPU that is making cameos in benchmark leaks. Interestingly, one of those leaks shows it being faster than AMD's Ryzen 9 3900X. The Core i9-10900K is a 10th generation Comet Lake-S processor that falls within Intel's 'mainstream' desktop processor lineup. That's to say, it's not a high-end desktop (HEDT) CPU, though it does wield a whole bunch of cores and threads. Specifically, it is a 10-core/20-thread... Read more...
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...
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...
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...
