Right now, everything we know about Comet Lake-S – the emerging desktop processors from the Comet Lake line from Intel – is all speculation and rumors. But thanks to solid leads from hardware speakers with eagle eyes, many of them are virtually confirmed.
Take the Intel Core i9-10900 and Core i5-10500 processors as an example. Leaked slides from Intel, which appeared on Informatica Cero at the end of December 2019, show this upcoming Comet Lake-S processor with 10 cores, 20 threads and a 5.1 GHz single-core boost clock speed, and 6 cores, 12 threads and a 4.5GHz boost clock speed, respectively.
Thanks to Twitter user @_rogame, which recently saw the CPU & # 39; s appear in the 3DMark database, some of the specifications of these two chips have now been confirmed, allowing us to take a look at the much anticipated Comet Lake-S range.
Intel Core i9-10900 and Core i5-10500 specifications
According to the screenshots tweeted by the hardware researcher, the Core i5-10500 will certainly have 6 cores, 12 threads and a basic clock speed of 3.1 GHz – although it looks like 3DMark did not correctly detect the boost clock.
The Core i9-10900, on the other hand, will certainly impress with its 10 cores and 20 threads. However, it only wants to provide 2.8 GHz base and 4.9 GHz boost clock speeds, a tad lower than what was shown on the aforementioned leaked slides.
Although it may be premature to worry about the lower numbers – as Tom & # 39; s Hardware reports, these can be technical examples whose specifications are subject to change. We can still get the 5.1 GHz boost clock when the Core i9-10900 finally rolls out.
Although no other information is available in the shared screenshots, the fact that we are seeing more and more signs of these rumors of Comet Lake-S chips – a UserBenchmark listing for an Intel Core i3-10300 recently leaked – is good news. It means that the Comet Lake-S chips are well on their way and will be launched very soon, possibly in the second quarter or early spring.
