Marketing materials of Intel's upcoming 10th generation Core "Comet Lake-S" desktop processors leaked to the web confirm the lineup's core-counts. The series will be led by 10-core/20-thread Core i9 processors, with Thermal Velocity Boost frequencies of up to 5.30 GHz. The Core i7 series will consist of 8-core/16-thread processors, with up to 5.10 GHz TVB frequencies. The Core i5 series gets its biggest shot in the arm, with the introduction of HyperThreading for the first time in 8 generations (the last Core i5 desktop processors with HTT were dual-core first-generation Core chips). The 10th gen Core i5 series chips are 6-core/12-thread, with clock-speeds running up to 4.80 GHz.

These frequencies should indicate two interesting things. One, that the Core i5-10600K will outperform the Core i7-8700K (6-core/12-thread, up to 4.70 GHz boost), resulting in a roughly 35% increase in price-performance vs. the i7-8700K, if it ends up being priced at $260. Two, that the Core i7-10700K will outperform the Core i9-9900K on virtue of 100 MHz higher frequencies, and give the segment a roughly 30% price-performance increase compared to the i9-9900K, if the i7-10700K ends up priced at $380. The Core i9-10900K will outperform the i9-9900K both in single- and multi-threaded fronts given its 300 MHz higher max boost and two extra cores (four extra threads), in what could be a roughly 25% price-performance gain, assuming an unchanged $500 price.
 
Intel's ability to price the i9-10900K north of $500 will be severely restricted by AMD's positioning of the Ryzen 9 3900X, given that the 12-core chip has sold for around $450 in more than one seasonal sale. A bill-of-materials analysis from February suggests that AMD has given itself "massive" cost-cutting headroom with its chiplet approach, and can aggressively cut prices of the 3900X to compete with the i9-10900K. The same goes for its Ryzen 7 3800X and Ryzen 5 3600X.
 
I think in this situation whether you are an Intel or AMD fan you'll be a winner if both companies cut prices.

    (excerpt OP link)
    "Intel is expected to unveil its new series on April 30. Some reviewers have already told us that they are expecting Z490 motherboard samples next week."
     
    Nice specs.  I'll be looking forward to the 3rd party reviews & benchmarks.

    Looks like those are gonna run hot hot hot!! to achieve those core counts/frequencies at that size.

    Ah, more -F and -KF silliness. How much do you want to bet Intel will price them the same again at launch.

    Making fun of Intel is an international pass time it seems.

    AMD was the one that everyone picked on for years, but lately they have been doing better(not perfect...GPU drivers for example still need work) Poor Intel just can't get anything right lately after years of doing great. Times have changed.
     
    Anyways I saw this AMD meme the other day and it made me laugh.
