Intel is expected to finally refresh its mainstream desktop platform with the introduction of the 14 nm "Comet Lake-S" processors, in Q2-2020. This sees the introduction of the new LGA1200 socket and Intel 400-series chipsets, led by the Z490 Express at the top. Platform maps of these PCI-Express gen 3.0 based chipsets make them look largely similar to current 300-series platform, with a few changes. For starters, Intel introducing its biggest ACPI change since C6/C7 power states that debuted with "Haswell;" with the introduction of C10 and S0ix Modern Standby power-states, which give your PC an iPad-like availability while sipping minimal power. This idea is slightly different from Smart Connect, in that your web-connected apps and processor work at an extremely low-power (fanless) state, rather than waking your machine up from time to time for the apps to refresh. 400-series chipset motherboards will also feature updated networking interfaces, such as support for 2.5 GbE wired LAN with an Intel i225-series PHY, 802.11ax WiFi 6 WLAN, etc.

HyperThreading will play a big role in making Intel's processor lineup competitive with AMD's given that the underlying microarchitecture offers an identical core design to "Skylake" circa 2015. The entry-level Core i3 chips will be 4-core/8-thread, Core i5 6-core/12-thread, Core i7 8-core/16-thread; and leading the pack will be the Core i9-10900K, a 10-core/20-thread processor. According to a WCCFTech report, this processor will debut in April 2020, which means at CES 2020 in January, we'll get to see some of the first socket LGA1200 motherboards, some even based on the Z490. The platform also mentions an interesting specification: "enhanced core and memory overclocking." This could be the secret ingredient that makes the i9-10900K competitive with the likes of the Ryzen 9 3900X. The LGA1200 platform could be forwards-compatible with "Rocket Lake," which could herald IPC increases on the platform by implementing "Willow Cove" CPU cores.

So two more cores and maybe integrated 802.11ax Wi-Fi...
Huge changes in the platform...

I mean, there's the new socket as well...
Modern standby on desktop could be interesting. This was originally designed for Ultrabooks to match iPad in terms of high availability, battery-life, and background refresh of web-connected apps. The snappiness with which an iPad comes to life even after 2 weeks of sitting in your drawer, with all its apps and notifications; is something that suspend-to-RAM couldn't match (also no background app refresh with STR). So Microsoft created an ACPI standard to achieve that kind of device behavior.

Interested to see how it benefits home desktops that don't stay powered up all day long.

If they can sell the i5-10500K *whatever the bloody name is* for ~200-220$ it's gonna be quite good for the gaming market.
The problem is you still need to get a new motherboard, and the way AMD is right now, you can get an absolutely solid B450 board for 120$ or less. Keep in mind it has all the OC features unlocked.
Don't think intel is gonna sell any decent Z490 boards for less than 200 bones. And you can't get any other chipset with OC support unless intel decides otherwise.
They're struggling and I love it

i9 - 10c/20t?
i7 - 8c/16t?
i5 - 6c/12t?
i3 - 4c/8t?

or maybe intel might have some non hyper threaded 10 series cpu.
e.g - i5 might be a straight 8cores and i3 might be a pure 6 cores with no hyper threading
pentium 4c/8t celeron 4c/4t

as for pricing i think intel is gonna ask $649 or $699 for its i9 10 cores, but it will be interesting what intel priced them at.

Disappointed with Intel recently but still rest assured it will still and easily best any ryzen 4xxx cpu's launched next year easily and with a bigger margin than this year as far as gaming is concerned with no misleading advertisement on the product.

Doesn't seem to be unique to this platform and it requires a compatible PSU...

Yeah all the while consuming just **95W of power, never mind the fact that it'll likely consume 250W w/MCE & all cores loaded :laugh:

Well if nothing else it will mean that Intel will have a $350-$400 8c16t CPU to go up against the 3700X/3800X, as price tiers will will no doubt drop down 1 notch, so as to keep the 10c20t part at the $500 mark.

Who you are trying to fool? it is not like as if AMD stays in their TDP specs, in fact they are worse in that aspect to Intel, and there is the boost speeds fracas and somehow slow boot up and countless bios headaches... i did not want to go over this but since it has been brought up.... there is this ill faited, turning a blind eye to one company and they get away with everything.... AMD is no whiter than white, in fact they are more darker then Intel is.

what bios headaches? i have a 3700x and i am very happy with it, no issues at all.
also did you compare how intel and AMD calculate tdp? can you maybe elaborate.

Erm the 3950X already beats the 18 Core 10980XE so how is this 10 core going to beat the 4000 Series from AMD? and if you say "gaming" your just an idiot....

10th gen 9900k equivalent at 300-350 to complete with 3700x will save them some lost sales, but knowing intel i doubt that, more like 400-450 and at that price range it wont be worth it.

what are you talking about. I have 3 ryzen systems and they all work just fine. Boot time is the fastest on my zen 2 system. It sounds to me like you're shilling for the other team. Now back to the subject matter, although I think this thing is DOA, it's price will dictate how well it does. Unfortunately for Intel Zen 3 is rumored to have about 15+% in improvements. If AMD can get some much needed clock speed boosts, I don't see anyone in their right minds getting this.

You know why April, right?


Intel: "And now we announce out first 10nm desktop processor, the Intel Core i9-10900K"

......audience goes silent......

Intel: Ahahahahahaha..... you are so easy to be fooled. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL! It's still 14nm++++++. April fool's day!
Oh, you are so easy....... so easy to be fooled......

.....By the way. We have some new 32nm i5s if you are interested...."

What do you expect? It's just a new product. It's not meant to be "exciting" or "innovative".
They launch generations on regular basis. It has the improvements they had at hand. That's it.

Big changes will come when possible. Intel wants that as well.

10900K itself doesn't look half bad if priced in line with AMD. At $500 it'll sell like hot cakes.
As usual, it's more important how the high volume, mid range models stack up ($150-300 range).

The high clock boost time is over people... I doubt you will ever see, any time soon a 5+GHz clock after this "so called" new series from Intel. Moving to smaller nodes, clocks will be hitting a wall. IPC gains and core counts is the way for the next few years.

Who you are trying to fool? it is not like as if AMD stays in their TDP specs, in fact they are worse in that aspect to Intel, and there is the boost speeds fracas and somehow slow boot up and countless bios headaches... i did not want to go over this but since it has been brought up.... there is this ill faited, turning a blind eye to one company and they get away with everything.... AMD is no whiter than white, in fact they are more darker then Intel is.
Who are "you" trying to fool? TDP is about heat dissipation first of all and not power draw, and while Intel's numbers refering to base clocks, AMD's is for the average boost clocks/workloads. A stock 3900X/3950X will stay under 150W total power draw/consumption vs a stock 9900K that surpasses 170W easily. And even a 3900X will drive circles around a 9900K in 90+% of all core work loads.


For the slow boot times... you are about 2 months behind news because that was improved with a UEFI update at some point.

AMD did not lie about anything. Users believed by their own "Intel mindshare" (like you) that boost will be Intel alike...
Advertised performance is real. And boost is also real, just not in the way you wanted/expected it to be.
Dont talk about misleading advetrisement because Intel has a whole division in false, misleading and narrow perspective adv...
