While it was still unclear when Intel Comet Lake was introduced, it was claimed that the new 10-core processor would be announced at the end of April. It is still unclear when the processor will be released.
Judging by the recent rumors, Intel will be announcing Comet Lake processors very soon. Intel’s long-awaited 10th generation desktop processors will be introduced on April 30, 2020, according to news by El Chapuzas Informatico. However, we may have to wait until May to hear more about the performance of the processors. More time will be required to purchase the processor.
The official announcement date of Intel Comet Lake has not been finalized yet; so for now we have to make do with the rumors at hand. However, we do not expect Intel to postpone its announcement even more. The potential announcement in late April seems to be compatible with the release of the 400 Series motherboard when it comes with reviews and availability in May.
10 cores, 20 threads:
The only thing we officially know so far is that Intel Comet Lake will come with 10 cores and 20 threads. Intel’s 10th generation Comet Lake processors will appear as ‘U’ and ‘Y’ series for laptops and 2-in-1 tablets. It was announced that the Comet Lake series has 8 different processor models.
Comet Lake processors are built on 14 nm architecture and have Gen 9.5 graphics system as well as Skylake architecture developed years ago. New processors are expected to have ‘Hyper Threading’ technology. For example, the Core i3 10100 is said to be a competitor to Skylake Core i7s as a quad core / eight thread processor.
According to the information provided by the user TUM_APISAK on Twitter, Core i9 10900K, with a very small margin, was ahead of Core i9 9900KS in Geekbench’s single core test, while it managed to receive 11,398 against 9,458 of 9th generation chips in multi-core tests.
However, it is possible to say that the debut of Intel Comet Lake is marred by speculation that the Intel Rocket Lake platform will be released. After the new Comet Lake processors, 10 nm mobile parts such as Willow Cove will also be prepared for the stage.
