Today we get the full range of its Intel’s 10th Generation processors for desktops. These chips, which fall under the banner of ‘Comet Lake’, will now go up to 10 cores and offer turbo speeds up to 5.3 GHz. Comet Lake is the fifth iteration of Intel’s very profitable Skylake microarchitecture, built on Intel’s 14++nm process, at a time when the competition is on 7nm with sixteen cores. The crux, according to Intel, is that it will offer the best gaming experience in this market.

 

Users wanting the 10-core 5.3 GHz will need to purchase the new top Core i9-10900K processor, which has a unit price of $488, and keep it under 70 ºC to enable Intel’s new Thermal Velocity Boost. Not only that, despite the 125 W TDP listed on the box, Intel states that the turbo power recommendation is 250 W – the motherboard manufacturers we’ve spoken to have prepared for 320-350 W from their own testing, in order to maintain that top turbo for as long as possible.

 

The range of 32 (!) new processors from Intel will vary from two core Celeron parts at 35 W all the way up to ten-core Core i9 hardware rated for 125 W, with per-unit pricing from $42 to $488. The standard rated TDP is 65 W, with the overclocked models at 125 W, the low-power T models at 35 W, and Pentium/Celeron at 58 W. All of the Core i3, i5, i7, and i9 processors will have HyperThreading, making the product stack a lot easier to understand. Certain models will also have F variants without integrated graphics, which will have a slightly lower per-unit cost.

Another year, another 14++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++nm processor. Looks like another phone-in from Intel, they would probably be still pushing 4 cores if AMD hadn't given them a kick up the jaxxie, but I suppose Chipzilla is still the tippy top for outright gaming performance.

 

On the other hand, if you were wondering how you were ever gonna heat your home this winter, look no further than the 10c20t, 5.3ghz, i9-10900K. Still waiting on the announcement about connectors to common home radiators.

 

Looks like you will need a LGA1200 socketed motherboard to play, more details here.

Who is actually supporting Intel outside of the server/enterprise space? I think the general consumer mind share has shifted in AMD's favor at this point. Ryzen is amazing.

just rebranded 9000 series with a few modifications and a different socket.

 

likely not much to write home about. will still beat AMD for outright GHZ and gaming (FPS) though.

 if not already mentioned I think it is Comet Lake-S that was released (and all the Z490 boards) 

 

For those confuzzled with the recent release of Ice Lake - this was for mobile devices.  Ice Lake-S I think might be out early next year.

 


With thunderbolt 3 it might be time for a small upgrade, but am really hanging out for USB 4 and HDMI 2.1 (might turn up as add-in cards next year).

I'm not quite an Intel fanboy, but I haven't run AMD for many, many years, however I suspect my next major upgrade will be to AMD short of a minor miracle. Aside from the fact Intel seem to have forgotten how to do anything other than re-release the same thing with tiny improvements for twice the price, they have just had SO many issues with security. It got to the point I wasn't even bothering to read about the latest way Intel CPU's had major security issues. I concede AMD have also had some of those issues, but nowhere near the same scale or impact. 

 

Also worth noting, for gaming, while Intel still dominate the top of the single thread passmark charts, AMD for the first time in many years have a whole bunch of CPU's right at their heels, with Ryzen 4000 desktop SKU's due in a few months.

I think that is a rather presumptive statement.

The quick and short answer is: Laptops.

wouldnt be so certain the current version of laptops has a higher % of AMD now than the last couple. we are seeing them trickle into NZ now.

If anything, Intel is having a great time so far this year. I would be interested to see the breakdown of the client segment between its desktop and mobile sales. I must admit, I thought their data center revenue would far outstrip their others sources, but no.

I don't think there will be a ice lake s; ice lake will supposedly be succeeded by tiger lake, as a 10++nm mobile chip, and comet lake by rocket lake, rumored to be another round of 14nm. It seems like the earliest rumours of a 10nm desktop chip are Alder lake.

Looking at Lenovo / Dell it still seems to be mostly Intel with the odd AMD option.

at the moment yes, but you should see the numbers increase over the year with a lot of the big names moving towards AMD in more of the products

i am thinking the new Dell XPS 17 is going to be my pick for laptop from what I am hearing about it.
