After announcing their 10th Gen mobile processors, Intel has taken the wraps off their 10th Gen Core Series (aka Comet Lake-S).
The new 10th Gen S-Series processors go up to 5.3Ghz in clock speed. Intel says their new processors are designed for better performance which in turn brings higher framerates and low latency.
The new chips also bring new overclocking enhancements such as overclocking knobs per-core HT disable/enable, PEG/DMI OC and enhanced voltage/frequency curve controls.
The thin die solder thermal performance is designed to improve the thermals of the chips.
The top-of-the-line 10th Gen Intel Core i9-10900K has 10 cores and 20 threads. As mentioned earlier, Intel claims their i9-10900K is “the world’s fastest gaming processor” and you should see some great gaming and content creation performance.
Some benchmarks include in PUBG, up to 10% more FPS vs 9th Gen Intel and up to 63% more FPS vs a 3-year old PC. In Monster Hunter World, there’s a 13% FPS increase compared to previous-gen and 37% vs an older PC.
For content creation, there’s 18% faster 4K video editing and up to 35% compared to an older PC.
The new Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 can now identify the best performing cores for increased performance. All of Intel’s 10th Gen Core desktop processors will choose the two best cores for improved single and dual-core performance.
Intel is working with a number of game devs including Creative Assembly, Firaxis Games and IO Interactive to help utilize the power of 10th Gen Intel in games such as Total War: Three Kingdoms, Sid Meier’s Civilization VI and Hitman 2.
The 10th Gen Intel Core Desktop processor family has support for 2.5G Intel Ethernet and integrated Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) support.
