Intel 10th Gen Core i9-10900Ok 10 Core, 5.3GHz Gaming CPU Launched

Intel 10th Gen Core i9-10900Ok 10 Core, 5.3GHz Gaming CPU Launched

Intel has launched its 10th Gen desktop CPU lineup primarily based on the 14nm ‘Comet Lake’ structure. The lineup consists of no fewer than 32 fashions, starting from a brand new flagship Core i9 for avid gamers and fanatics, to the mainstream Core i7, Core i5, and Core i3 households, and even some entry-level Pentium, and Celeron choices. The refresh comes as a slight replace to the ninth Gen ‘Espresso Lake’ collection. Intel continues to refresh and refine its 14nm manufacturing course of, however doesn’t introduce a model new structure. The corporate is selling improved clock speeds, which it says are essential for evenly threaded workloads resembling gaming, in addition to extra cores and threads throughout a lot of the lineup.

The spotlight of the launch is the brand new top-end Core i9-10900Ok mannequin which options 10 cores with Hyper-Threading. It has a base pace of three.7Ghz and a most enhance pace of 4.8GHz throughout all cores or 5.3GHz for one core. The very best speeds are achieved utilizing Intel’s Turbo Increase Max 3.0, beforehand seen solely in Core X-series fashions, and Thermal Velocity Increase, which rely upon thermal and energy variables. The TDP is rated at 125W and this mannequin is totally overclockable. Intel’s really useful value is $488 (roughly Rs. 36,630 earlier than taxes). A non-unlocked mannequin, the 65W Core i9-10900, has base and enhance speeds of two.8GHz and 5.2GHz respectively.

The corporate is billing the Core i9-10900Ok because the world’s quickest gaming processor. In comparison with the Core i9-9900Ok, Intel touts as much as 33 p.c higher framerates in particular video games, and 18 p.c quicker video encoding, with these figures rising to as much as 81 p.c and 35 p.c respectively in comparison with a three-year-old Core i7-7700Ok.  

Intel has additionally launched the brand new Core i7-10700Ok with eight cores and 16 threads, and these do profit from Turbo Increase Max 3.Zero however not Thermal Velocity Increase. The Core i5 household will get six cores and 12 threads with out Turbo Increase Max 3.0. There are unlocked 125W in addition to mainstream 65W variations of every. All Core i3 fashions characteristic 4 cores with Hyper-Threading, and all have 65W TDPs.

Under these fashions, Intel has additionally launched the brand new dual-core, four-thread Pentium Gold G6600, G6500 and G6400, and the dual-core Celeron G5920 and G5900 with out Hyper-Threading. A collection of 35W TDP variants throughout the hierarchy have additionally been launched, to be used in low-profile or temperature-sensitive conditions.

As much as dual-channel DDR4-2933 RAM is supported for the Core i9 and Core i7 fashions, whereas all the things under them maxes out at DDR4-2666. Intel has additionally carried ahead its present UHD Graphics 630 and 610 built-in GPUs with no new options highlighted. CPU fashions within the lineup with the F suffix, such because the Core i9-10900KF, don’t have built-in graphics capabilities. 

Unlocked fashions profit from new overclocking controls together with per-core Hyper-Threading and extra detailed voltage/frequency curve adjustment. Intel additionally touts its soldered thermal interface materials which makes cooling more practical. 

All of the CPUs use the brand new LGA1200 socket interface, breaking compatibility with present motherboards. Intel has additionally quietly launched the Z490, H470, B460 and H410 platform controllers to motherboard producers, and all-new lineups could be anticipated to be introduced shortly. LGA1200 will nonetheless enable coolers designed for earlier LGA11xx sockets for use.

Asus is the primary to announce its lineup of seven Z490 motherboards in India, starting from the Asus Prime Z490M-Plus priced at Rs. 22,500 to the ultra-high-end ROG Maximus XII Excessive which is able to price a whopping Rs. 91,485. The flagship mannequin options 4 M.2 slots, one 20Gbps USB 3.2 Gen2x2 port plus further 10Gbps USB 3.2 Gen2 ports, Thunderbolt 3, 2.5Gbps Ethernet, Wi-Fi 6, and Blueooth 5.1. It additionally boasts of superior thermal and energy supply {hardware} for overclocking. 

Intel not too long ago launched a 10th Gen ‘Comet Lake’ collection for high-end and gaming laptops, whereas mainstream slim laptops labeled as 10th Gen may characteristic both 14nm ‘Comet Lake’ or the newer 10nm ‘Ice Lake’ structure, relying on what the producer selected to make use of. Leaked roadmaps seem to recommend that Intel will proceed delivery 14nm components for the desktop, all derived from the sixth Gen ‘Skylake’ platform, till not less than 2021 however its struggles with 10nm manufacturing will then be over for good because it transitions to 7nm and past.
