Intel Could Launch 10th Gen Core "Comet Lake" Desktop Processors on April 30

Intel could launch its 10th generation Core "Comet Lake-S" desktop processor family on the 30th of April (±24 hours depending on the time-zone), according to a report by El Chapuzas Informatico. The processors is built in the new LGA1200 package, and require new Intel 400-series chipset motherboards, which will launch alongside. Pricing of these processors will be along expected lines, with the Core i9 series in the $500-400 range, the Core i7 series in the $300-400 range, the Core i5 series in the $180-300 range, and Core i3 series priced below. As reported earlier, Intel is expected to increase Core i9 series core-counts to 10-core/20-thread, while doubling thread counts and L3 cache amounts across the Core i7, Core i5, and Core i3 brand extensions, to 8-core/16-thread, 6-core/12-thread, and 4-core/8-thread, respectively.

Potential buyers will get hyper-threading with every offering.
Only if they make the pricing lower, so that they are more competitive with the cheaper across the entire range Ryzens.

The HT Intel recommended we'd better disable, is it that one?

You're right, they need hefty price cuts to sell old product on inferior node and with inferior security, and no assurance that it won't be dropping further with new mitigations. Even if for consumer you don't need the mitigations. You're still left with a less secure product for it.

Anything between now and the next major architecture based on the new node from Intel are stop gaps. But being Intel, I'm pretty sure they won't lower the price (or at least not substantially). So not worth it.

This is the paper launch date, expect hardware later.

Why do I somehow think that they do everything possible to delay the launch...
The more they delay it, the more it will directly combat the Zen 3-based Vermeer with rumoured release in October.

It won't be that late. Can't share exact dates, but it should be within a month's time from the paper launch, if all goes according to the current plans.

I think it's the other way around, Intel wants to move some units before Vermeer shows up. Given that Intel's sales have dropped, I don't think they want to wait for the competition to improve before launching.

We will have to wait for benchmarks but I think they should have not switched sockets and keep z390.

No thanks Intel, we don’t buy a DOA product.

When will AMD release the 4000 serie desktop CPU? That’s wat people want to know.

Intel, where's PCI 4.0 when PS5 and XSX will set SSD read performance for games?
