Currently, the 10 th generation of Intel chips gene were deployed on most laptops and desktops now is the time of the company’s chip surface. The company has officially introduced its latest Comet Lake-S processor with four new Core i chips: i3, i5, i7 and i9.
Leading performance is the Core i9-10900K, with 10 cores, 20 threads, TDP 125W, maximum clock speed of up to 5.3 GHz, and according to Intel, this is the fastest gaming processor in the world.
In addition to the top-of-the-line Core i9-10900K chip priced at 488 USD, Intel also introduces 2 other unlocked chips: Core i7-10700K (priced at 374 USD) with 8 cores, 16 threads, 3 core clock, 8 GHz and can increase the clock to 5.1 GHz. The cheapest unlocked chip, the Core i5-10600K, costs $ 262. With this price, users will have a 6-core processor, 12 threads, 4.1 GHz base clock and can increase the clock to 4.8 GHz.
However, the disappointing thing is that, just like the recently launched H-series laptop chips, the new desktop chips continue to use the 14nm process – which has been used since 2015. . Currently, there are only a few lines of Ice Lake chips on new laptops using the 10nm process.
While still using the old technology process, the new chips can still achieve the same high speed thanks to the new technologies equipped on these chips, including Turbo Boost 3.0 and “Thermal Velocity Boost”. “(This technology has been introduced in the H-series Gen 10 th laptop chips, but it is only limited to the Core i9 series.) The unique feature of Thermal Velocity Boost is that it can accelerate the clock when the processor reaches a temperature of 70 ° C or lower, if the power allows it.
The new chips also support up to DDR4-2933 memory, Ethernet speeds of up to 2.5 Gigabit, and like the rest of the Gen 10 th series , they all come with built-in Wi-Fi 6 by default.
One drawback of this processor upgrade is that Intel has changed the socket pins of the new chip line, so these new Comet Lake chips will not be compatible with past Coffee Lake motherboards – a common habit. Intel has been around for years – so you’ll need to keep this in mind when upgrading your PC.
The new Core series is also equipped with Intel’s integrated UHD Graphics 630 – except for the F-series when not equipped with integrated graphics to reduce costs.
In addition to the powerful processors that have been unlocked with 125W TDP (denoted by the letter K at the end of each version name), Intel also introduced the usual Gen 10 th chips with 65W TDP including the Core i3 series. , i5, i7 and i9, besides the low-power 35W T-series chips. Despite having the same cores and threads, it has lower clock speeds and less power consumption.
