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...
