Påståede lækkede detaljer om Intel Comet Lake-S-platform kræver ... Du gættede det ... En ny platform

Intel's development of their Core architecture in the post-Ryzen world has been slow, with solutions slowly creeping up in core counts with every new CPU release - but much slowly than rival AMD's efforts. Before Intel can capitalize on a new, more scalable and power-efficient architecture, though, it has to deliver performance and core count increases across its product line to stay as relevant as possible against a much revitalized rival. Enter Comet Lake-S: the desktop parts of Intel's new round of consumer CPUs, which will reportedly see an increase in the maximum core count to a 10-core design. This 10-core design, however, comes with an increase in power consumption (up to 135 W), and the need, once again, for beefier power delivery systems in a new, LGA 1200 package (with 9 more pins that the current LGA 1151).

Overgangen til en ny stikkontakt og de strengere strømkrav giver Intel muligheden for at opdatere sit chipset-tilbud igen. Hvis alt forbliver det samme (og der er ingen grund til, at det skulle ændre sig), bør nye Z470 og Z490 chipsæt være nogle af de højere niveauer tilbud for bygherrer at parre med deres bundkort. De nye Comet Lake-S CPU'er vil stadig blive bygget i den nu ekstremt raffinerede 14 nm-proces og angiveligt beholder de samme 16 PCIe 3.0-baner som de nuværende Coffee Lake Refresh-tilbud. De nye CPU-tilbud fra Intel forventes at blive implementeret i Q1 2020. Sources: XFastest, via Tom's Hardware
