What is exactly happening to TPU?

This website and Anand are my only source of reliable info, and this piece of news cannot even be defined a "rumor".
Is clearly fake and coming from a source that's one of the worst (and no... those times when they seemingly got it right are irrelevant because they try for a given rumor to write all the possible outcomes in different articles in order to say "we were right or close" when the truth comes finally out - check it).

Ok, I get it, it generates clicks, but the reputation of TPU is definitely dented.
This piece should be edited with apologies. If it ends up to be (almost) true, then is when you should write about it and properly inform your readers.

Yes, an update is definitely in order here.

If you process shrink, power savings should follow. They don't need a new socket, and yes it costs them money, but only so they can help out their partner mobo oems. Without OEM's making boards, you aren't going to sell CPUs. Intel does it to make their partners happy regardless of a small "loss" to develop a new socket standard.
Coffee Lake (and Comet Lake) were not planned initially. Intel were hoping to move to 10nm, then switch to Ice Lake and so on.
Comet Lake will still be on 14nm, so there is no major power savings.

So this then begs the question... If they lose money on creating new chipsets every time the traffic light at the end of the road turns red, why do it? Build a chipset for at least four years, that should cut down on the R&D and production costs.
Because plans change.
Initially Intel planned:
Skylake (2015) new chipset
Cannon Lake (2016) 10nm
Ice Lake (2017) new chipset
Tiger Lake (2018)
And then it started to go downhill; Kaby Lake, Coffee Lake, Coffee Lake v2, Comet Lake…
It's poor planning from Intel, and lack of headroom and good backup plans.

If you thought that the 9900K ran hot, imagine what it will be with two more cores for a total of ten. I don't even want to think about it.
The problem for i9-9900K is not heat, but energy density.

Has anybody noticed on the intel schematics, that the PCI-E lanes are on the PCH not the CPU-Die?

Did some reading and calculating. The OPI is a 4x DMI 3.0 connection. So 4 x 4 PCI-E 3.0 lanes. Which makes it 16 lanes.
Will be interesting to see if you could bottleneck it more easy than a traditional chipset design. Which had 16 lanes from the cpu and 4 lanes from cpu to the chipset.
As I pointed out earlier, that diagram is of a mobile CPU/chipset combo package. Desktop CPUs don't have MIPI CSI camera interfaces.

PCI-E 3.0 is very bad and sad news for new Intel platform.
Because that could be better product then AMD Ryzen 2.
To bad, small number of people will invest in PCI-E 3.0 and Intel can't change that fact.

I think this news will be nail in coffin of people who decide to delay upgrade and wait next Intel, because someone to stay next 3-4 years on PCI-E 3.0. That's insane.

This is just the typical "leaks" we get when there is an "information vacuum", someone just picks up on rumors and make some "qualified guesses" and calls it a leak.

But regardless, Intel is preparing Comet Lake-S, and it's coming "soon".

When Intel write article PCI-E 4.0 mean nothing for games they thought enthusiasts have 10x HDD and 2x SSD SATA III for system and gaming.
They forgot that last 3-4 years enthusiasts invest like crazy in PCI-E SSDs and M.2 NVMe SSDs who directly depend of PCI-E Interface.
Improvement of M.2 connected to AMD CPU or AMD X570 PCH will be much faster then Intel's system.
And today PC is small box with one 1-2 M.2 on motherboards, maybe PCI-E SSD, maybe not and one SSD SATA III for storage.
They don't want SATA Power cables, SATA Cables, HDDs any more. They want system device to hand to mobo like memory or CPU and Intel is inferior in such situation.
10th Gen will left mark as i7-5775C Broadwell and will be forgotten for 2 months.
I mean it's not USB 3.1, or Network-Wi-Fi controller. This is for new generation same as before SATA II vs SATA III.
And if AMD is smart they will bombing market with news about performance of system with PCI-E 4.0 Interface.

Because now for 850$ you beat i9-9980XE, Year old premium Intel CPU worth 2000$. I mean for 850$ you pay and 12 core CPU and Crosshair VIII Hero.
If no more money system could boot with any DDR4 to work until you save money for new faster DDR4.
Investing in PCI-E 3.0 is oppose to enthusiasm, that have name. Intel's victim. Victim of Intel's politic because fanboyism.
And 10 cores to work all of them stable on 5.2GHz can't outperform 3900X.

This article gave me laugh three times. Let me list them in order.

"These processors are based on existing "Skylake" cores" :laugh:

"These processors come in the new LGA1159 package, and are not backwards-compatible with LGA1151 motherboards " :D

"Leading the pack is the Core i9-10900KF, " WOW what is long list of numbers for merely a mainstream processor. :banghead:

Probably fake but very amusing.

Simply awed at the traction the comment section gave itself to this site post.
Oh and what is that kind of shiny thing on the floor sitting in the dark, is it a button?

Could not mind less, more is better for less $ till quantum computers/calculator call them what you will, that is if those are fesile.

why this mm^2 on bigger node is this and not that on a smaller node? because cache and other internals;

Ranty Pamflet of mine : "We at Intel as Intel are like a dam , we keep ''IP'' in the reservoir and only trickle it trough the power generation part of the plant to generate capital, we'll be milking this reservoir till the end of time and beyond."

It's hard work be it either side or camp you on or simpatheize with or on , both physicly and mentally, Respect.

How come source, WCCFTech has the info carefully worded that this is an "alleged leak", but TechPoweUP has it published as a straightforward info?

"Intel’s 10th Gen ‘Comet Lake’ Desktop CPU Lineup Allegedly Leaks Out – Core i9-10900KF Flagship With 10 Cores, 20 Threads, 5.2 GHz Boost at $499 US, 8 Cores Start at $339 US, 6 Cores at $179 US"

Wh, doesn't TechPowerUP article come up with the same warning flags, "allegedly", "leak"?

This "article" is a disgrace to TPU.
Integrity as a concept is way less interesting than clicks and eyeballs, both of which this thing provides. It's just how it is, gotta make the dough somehow.

Have to go for AMD for that, if it's have to be x86. Intel will go straight to pcie gen5 as they have downplayed gen4 all the time.

Good luck for having that in near future though, current Intel and their roadmaps. But alas, if and when they get their manufacturing woes under control they have all the abilities to deliver.
