Comet Lake-S leaks stay hitting earth
OH LOOK IT’S ANOTHER INTEL CHIP SPEC LEAK, this time spilling some information about the impending 10th-gen Comet Lake-S desktop processors.
Dependable chip-seeking information spotter @Momomo_us flagged a 3DMark end result posted to Reddit, which displays what seems to be a last model of the Core i5-10600, somewhat than an engineering pattern as noticed in earlier leaks.
One must take these things with a pinch of salt, however the specifications for the Core i5-10600 level a six-core, 12-thread processor operating at a base clock velocity of three.3GHz and ramping as much as 4.7GHz when at Turbo Spice up velocity.
That is about on par with what we might be expecting a next-gen Core i5 CPU to have relating to core counts and clock velocity. In the end, Comet Lake-S chips are nonetheless going to be in accordance with Intel’s delicate however somewhat lengthy within the enamel 14-nanometre procedure node.
Best cell Ice Lake CPUs are on Intel’s newest 10nm fabrication procedure, despite the fact that it’s dedicated to bringing desktop processors in accordance with that node someday, simply not really in 2020.
However the attention-grabbing factor with the Core i5-10600 is that it is going to use Intel’s HyperThreading tech, which will have to permit it to accomplish multi-threaded job with aplomb, thus making it aggressive with AMD’s Ryzen 3000-series CPUs which might be specifically excellent at multi-threaded workloads.
In truth, the enhancements AMD has made with Zen 2 and the multi-thread chops of the newest Ryzen CPUs, seems to gave driven Intel to carry HyperThreading all the way down to its mid-range desktop processors.
So it could appear that Intel is reacting to this renewed festival to AMD, which is for sure a excellent factor for PC lovers.
We think to look the Comet Lake-S processors pop up early-ish subsequent yr, despite the fact that by means of that point it could be too past due for Intel to correctly see off the problem the Ryzen 3000-series chips threw down. µ
