After many delays, it rewards you with various problems and the dignity of AMD Zen 2 Growing bigger and bigger on the edges, Intel has its new Comet Lake-S architecture, where it is obvious that some CPUs can really surprise you.
Intel Core i7-10700K: unimaginable frequency just 2 years ago
If the 9-9900K and the i9-9900KS currently dominate the competitive category like gaming, the new 710700K would be a shame to them, at least in some games.
Cleanse me with it APISAK reveals the number of cores and the amount of processor mentioned under the suite Futuremark Systeminfo
Although the scores were not revealed as such, if significant factors such as base width and turbo were identified, without controversy we should mention. This i7-10700K appeared in ECS Z490H6-A2, the mother board is still unknown for obvious reasons that clearly show the company's brand.
Its 8 cores and 16 threads have been certified as competitors in the Cofi Lake-R i9-9900K, but also with leakage support that delivers a TDP of 125 watts, this will come from a 3.8 GHz frequency base.
Why is this important? Because the fit of the strings and strings at 200 MHz more you get 30 watts more
The first processor is up to fully 5.3 GHz
Most impressive is undoubtedly the fact that this i7-10700K will be the first processor to overcome an almost completely normal 5 GHz barrier and by far, what to put between the Ryzen 7 3800X from AMD.
In addition, it is estimated that its price may be less than $ 400, which would not make it more competitive with its direct competitor and exceed performance in the i9-9900K and KS, giving them a lower rating.
The controversy arises from the base speed view, since those 5.3 GHz we see are part of the technology Thermo Velocity Boost Intel, so the shadow of a doubt abounds in this aspect, because apparently access to that block will only be possible if the temperature allows it.
The problem then, is that when you first start 125 watts use of 5.3 GHz we can talk about 220 watts without a lot of problems, a number that many users can ignore and in case it can be extremely high, so only users with extremely high AIO or customized cooling can get those 5, 3 GHz strong.
Comet Lake-S seems to be on time april, then we will see if this eventually becomes a reality or not.
