Intel needs a replica of AMD’s Zen 2 processor series. Currently, Intel offers a maximum of eight cores in its processors for the mass audience, but the network one has up to 16 cores in its AM4 platform. Although they should arrive this year the 10 nm are still not ready, at least for desktops. The company remains focused on offering these processes in the portable market, where AMD has not arrived with its 7 nm. With this, Intel’s desktop offer remains at 14 nm, and will remain so by the end of the year or early 2020 when the Comet Lake family hits the market with the new LGA socket 1159. What is this down here? The specifications of the complete linear, just filtered by Computerbase:
Looking at the slide, it seems that the blue has taken note of what AMD has been doing, so it will offer hyperthreading in all new models, as well as official support for DDR4-3200 memory for i5 processors and up. In the high-end spectrum, Comet Lake will have up to 10 cores and 20 processing threads with boost frequencies of up to 5.2 GHz, and in terms of core design, the new family will follow that of the Coffee Lake. Apparently, Intel has decided to offer more cores in exchange for the iGPU. With this, the future i9-10900KF will be a 10-core CPU without iGPU. On the other hand, this processor will compete directly with the Ryzen 9 3900X 12-core and $ 500 cost.
