A new leak promises us a new generation for desktops early next year
After the launch of Two series Processors News for laptops In a very short space of time, a certain sense of neglect can certainly be claimed Intel As for the world of stationary processors - left with the generationCore Ninth launched at the end of last year, as part of the family Coffee Lake That accompanies us in the Torah from 2017.
While switching to 10 nm lithography in home processors in the stationary market is still not quite visible in the cards of Intel - It seems that a new generation that will take advantage of the spearhead of the old and mature production at 14 nanometers will actually arrive very soon, with a further increase in the number of maximum processing cores.
An updated model roadmap of the manufacturer presents a model for launching models Comet Lake-S desktops in early 2020, with possible official unveiling at the CES show in January ostensibly - and with a reliance on a resident LGA1200 New, on new motherboards of the 400 series and with ten physical processing cores in the leading processors instead of eight processing cores as a maximum today.
Comet Lake processors The stationary market will be offered with an official power envelope of 35 watts, 65 watts and 125 watts in K models with open multiplication and optimal speed capabilities - with the latter number being a significant increase over the official power envelope of 95 watts for the most powerful models in the current generation (although we already know That the figure does not necessarily indicate the maximum possible power consumption of the various models). The new processors will offer the same pair of memory channels DDR4 With a base speed of 2,666MHz and the same 16 PCI-Express 3.0 arteries directly from the processor itself as we get in desktop Coffee Lake processors now - but will also offer one more technological upgrade in the form of built-in connectivity support Wi-Fi The latest 802.11ax standard and standard connectivity Bluetooth 5.0.
Intel is expected to face a significant challenge in trying to convince consumers to invest in new motherboards for a new resident for Comet Lake processors, Especially at a time when AMD's latest Ryzen processors have been surprisingly good and have proven backward compatibility with a large variety of motherboards in the AM4 chassis and a large variety of dynamic memories at different speeds and timings - with the transition to ten processing cores at the expense of increased power envelope indicating Intel's relative lack of capabilities at a time when AMD is offering for sale 8-core processors at unprecedented prices and even a 12-core processor at a very competitive price, With the 16 processor cores for the masses who are also on their way to the stores In the near future.
Intel may have no choice but to compare AMD's offer and offer 16 cores on its mainstream platform with The long-awaited transition to 10 nm - Then it will be interesting to see if this happens based on the same new LGA1200 chassis that is unveiled before us here, or if Intel will decide to introduce another new chassis for this era, which can definitely disappoint all those who choose to assemble a system based on Comet Lake Somewhere during 2020 year. What do you guys think about this thing? Let's discuss this with everyone.
