Core i9 10000 vs AMD Ryzen 3000 - 10 Cores and 20 Threads in Intel's 10th Gen

Intel prepares a response to the successful AMD Ryzen 3000 Series CPU and develops its own 10th generation chipsets with more cores and threads. The new processors will use LGA 1200 socket and Intel 400 Series chipset.

A leak has recently appeared on the web, presenting the new Comet Lake-S series of CPU.

9th-gen processors are well established and have taken performance standards to a new level, but it's been about four years since their launch. During this time AMD managed to catch up and release Ryzen 3000 series, which remains very popular.

Intel is likely to launch the Comet Lake-S series soon. The flagship product will be the Core i9 processor with 10 cores and 20 threads, which will be clocked in Boost mode up to 5.1 GHz (the base clock will be 3 GHz). All the chipsets will be based on the well-known Skylane microarchitecture and manufactured in 14 nm technology.

But wait, there's more.

The new CPU is not the only novelty that Intel will offer us. Refreshing your computer with a new CPU is not enough - 10th generation will probably require new motherboards. Intel will move from the LGA1151 to the new LGA1200, meaning Comet Lake-S will not be compatible with motherboards with the 300 chipset - it will be replaced by the 400 series. The size of the new motherboard socket will remain unchanged, but the number of pins will increase. But don't expect any other big changes when comparing old and new chipsets.

Not even the approximate launch date of Intel's new hardware has been announced yet. According to the leaks, the debut is to take place in the first half of 2020. Specific prices were also not disclosed. We can only hope that the amount we will have to pay for Intel's new CPUs will be competitive, attracting new customers and putting pressure on AMD. Current Ryzen processors offer more cores and threads than Intel at a lower cost.
