Intel’s 10th generation of Desktop CPUs, dubbed ‘Comet Lake’, are coming out next year. The entire CPU lineup was leaked a couple of weeks ago. The leak promised up to 10 cores, 20 threads, an 80W TDP, a W480 chipset and a new LGA 1200 socket. All of the Comet Lake SKUs will also be supporting multi-threading. In this article, we will try to cover all of this and more that we know about Intel’s upcoming Comet Lake desktop CPUs. Before we move on to the details, let us start with a quick list of all the things that the 10th generation Comet Lake CPUs are promising to deliver: The lineup that was leaked last week consisted of seven segments: Core i9, Core i7, Core i5, Core i3, Pentium, Celeron and Xeon W. The CPUs with 10 and 8 cores will be based on the Comet Lake-S 10+2 wafer. The others will be based on the Comet Lake-S 6+ 2 wafer. There have been a lot of rumors floating around about the performance capability of the Comet Lake S CPUs. Leaked slides from Intel show that in multi-threaded compute workloads, the next gen Comet Lake S family of CPUs perform 18% better than their predecessors. The slides also show that in regular Windows based work, the 10th gen processors perfor...
