At the end of this month, if you believe the rumors, Intel will finally introduce a new generation of desktop processors under the name of Comet Lake-S. Thanks to the many leaks and rumors we already know about the updates almost all the details, and now some of them confirmed thanks to the official marketing materials Intel published by VideoCardz.
Submitted images confirm that the flagship 10-core 20-thread Intel Core i9-10900K do will automatically accelerate up to a frequency of 5.3 GHz with the help of technology Thermal Velocity Boost (TVB). That is, such automatic acceleration is not possible for all cores at the same time and only for a short period of time, provided sufficient cooling. For example, recently presented mobile Comet Lake-H technology TVB adds 200 MHz at temperatures up to 65 °C, and 100 MHz at a temperature of from 65 to 85 °C.
In turn, the Core i7-10700K having 8 cores and 16 threads, will automatically accelerate up to 5.1 GHz, but the forces of technology Turbo Boost Max 3.0. She, recall, determines the fastest processor core, and in certain applications enhances its frequency to the maximum.
Finally, the Intel Core i5-10600K, which has 6 cores and 12 threads, will be able without assistance to conquer the frequency of 4.8 GHz. Here you will use either the same Max Turbo Boost 3.0 or older Turbo Boost 2.0, which provides overclocking one or two cores to the maximum frequency.
Intel notes that all three processors are able to provide the highest level of performance in modern games. The first two processors are suitable for most operating systems, for the tasks that require high multithreaded performance. The latter is best suited for a gaming PC. Note that all three chips have an unlocked multiplier and a TDP level they have is 125 watts.
It is expected that Intel will introduce a new generation of desktop processors on April 30. According to some observers, the next week they will receive samples of motherboards on Intel Z490 designed for testing chips Comet Lake-S.
