Intel 10th Generation Comet Lake CPU Lineup Leaked?

Intel’s 10th Gen Comet Lake CPUs are still under wraps and we haven’t heard much about them but thanks to a leak by someone claiming to be an insider, we might get a first look at all the 10th Gen SKUs and what they plan on offering. As with any rumour or leak take this with a grain of salt.

First things first, these CPUs are using a new socket as with most Intel refreshes. This time it’s the LGA 1159 socket and it allows them to support memory speeds faster than 2666Mhz. So, let’s start off with the very interesting i3 line-up here which looks to change things up. All the i3s mentioned in the image are 4 core 8 thread which means, hyper-threading is back not only on the midrange CPUs but is surprisingly also on the lower end.  These i3 CPUs support a maximum of Dual Channel 2933Mhz DDR4 and they start at $129 with the highest i3 coming in at $179 which is where the i5 line-up also starts.

The i5 CPUs seem to really bring in the competition for the Ryzen 5 series with 6 cores and 12 threads on all the i5s. However, overclocking seems to be limited to the i5-10600K which is the most expensive i5 at $269. The i5s also support higher memory speeds of Dual Channel 3200Mhz.

Moving on to the higher-end of the spectrum and we have the i7 10700 and the 10700K which cost $339 and $389 respectively. These 8 core and 16 thread CPUs also support 3200Mhz RAM and the unlocked 10700K can go up to 4.8Ghz on all cores.

And then at the top end, we have the i9 series. These beasts start at $409 with the i9-10800F and go up to $499 with the i9-10900KF. These 10 core 20 thread CPUs can all hit 5Ghz+ on a single core while for all cores the max boost clock speed is 4.6Ghz. However, we can assume that overclockers can get it 5Ghz with good to decent cooling.

One thing to keep in mind here is that these are all listed as 14nm+++. Now, those are a lot of pluses and shows that Intel still hasn’t moved to a smaller chipset or are confident that they can take on AMD with this line-up.

Another thing is that they’ve kept their prices quite competitive. Given that this leaks point to Intel bringing Hyper-threading to all their Core i-series CPUs, they could potentially beat AMD’s Ryzen 3000 series CPUs at both single-core and even multi-core performance at a similar price point. 

It is disappointing that these CPUs are still on the 14nm architecture but if these leaks do turn out to be true, it will really make the CPU market even more competitive. This leak hasn’t been confirmed yet so again, we’ll advise you to take all this with a grain of salt.

Intel 10th Gen Processors for Laptops Leaked, Might Be Out This Year

We’ve seen our fair share of leaks regarding Intel hardware in recent times, and it doesn’t seem like they’re going to stop anytime soon. Thanks to reliable leakers like Momomo_us and Komachi, we now have our eyes on Intel’s 10th gen CPU line up for notebooks.

The leak shows 14nm Comet Lake U and 10nm Ice Lake U processors, which may be announced later in the second half of this year. As expected, there will be multiple SKUs in all Core i7, Core i5 and Core i3 families, the rumoured names for which you can check out below:

Rumored Intel 10th Gen Ice Lake-U Processors:

  • Core i7-1065G7
  • Core i5-1035G7
  • Core i5-1035G4
  • Core i5-1035G1
  • Core i5-1034G1
  • Core i3-1005G1

The Core i7-1065G7 is expected to be the flagship, with 4 cores, a base clock of 1.3 GHz and boost clock speed of 3.5 GHz on all cores. It is said to have a TDP of 15W and will be one of the first chips to use Intel’s Gen 11 graphics.

Rumored Intel 10th Gen Comet Lake-U Processors:

  • Core i7-10710U
  • Core i7-10510U
  • Core i5-10210U
  • Core i3-10110U

The top model in the 14nm Comet Lake-U CPUs is supposed to be the Core i7-10710U with 6 cores. What gives credibility to these names is an entry spotted by Twitter user TUM_APISAK that lists specs similar to the ones pointed out by the leaks, suggesting that these chips do exist and may surface soon.

Considering intel just announced the 9th gen processor line-up for laptops, it’ll be really interesting to see how and when they plan to release the 10th gen CPUs, and how the upcoming parts will fit into their plans for the existing range of products. In any case, with a bulk of new announcements expected in the next few months, things are bound to get exciting for the gaming community.

Details about Intel’s Comet Lake surface, 10 Cores and More

Intel’s ‘Comet Lake’, something we all have been waiting for quite eagerly, seems to be just around the corner.

There are leaks about Intel’s Comet Lake surfacing on the internet. The upcoming processors have been listed on the Linux support list.
The Comet Lake series will be based on the same old 14 nm architecture. So it is a periodic refresh rather than a brand new series. However, on a positive side, the chips have a higher core count. The rumours indicate that the desktop chips would come with up to 10 cores. Comet Lake Mobile processors will stretch their legs till 8 cores. These chips will typically come with higher clock speeds.

Linux support list.

The support list on Linux reports Comet Lake-S, Comet Lake-H and Comet Lake-U processors upcoming. If you are not too sure about Intel’s suffixes, let me tell you that the ‘S’ series processors come with integrated graphics, ‘H’ series lack any integrated graphics and ‘U’ series are Ultra-Low power CPUs designed for thin and light laptops.

Because these chips are still based on the 14 nm node, higher clock speeds and more core counts mean that you’ll see an upward trend on temperatures and power consumption graphs. So, if you are planning on getting a Comet Lake chip, you better save up for a better CPU cooler.

As things are unfurling right now, it seems that the Comet Lake processors will be Intel’s last 14nm chips (only if Intel has real plans to ever upgrade to 10nm.)
