Intel launches World's fastest Gaming Processor

The world’s largest and highest valued semiconductor chip manufacturer –Intel, last month announced its 10th Gen H series mobile processors for the next generation of gaming laptops.

Most processors in Intel’s H series were designed to boost clock speeds upwards on 5.0 GHz. Now, the American multinational corporation just launched its 10th Gen powerhouses for desktops and this is the company’s biggest unveiling of the year.

Intending to improve single and dual-core turbo performance, Intel has added its two best cores operating in the 10th Gen Intel Core desktop processor.The manufacturer of the world’s first commercial microprocessor chip, debuted its Comet Lake-S processors across its Core i9, i7, i5, and i3 lineups.

Intel claims that its Core i9-10900K is the “world’s fastest gaming processor” with features that include 10 cores and 20 threads, a boost clock speed of 5.3 GHz and a 125W TDP.

Similar to one of its recently announced H series laptop processors, the new 10th Gen desktop processors also dependand rely on Intel’s 14nm Skylake architecture and not the 10m Ice Lake chips. The top-tier Core i9-10900K is priced at USD 488 that is about 36800 rupees.

However,Intel is also introducing two more unlocked chips, in the form of the 8-core, 16-thread Core i7-10700K (Base Clock – 3.8GHz/Boost Clock 5.1 GHz). This will cost around USD 374, while the Core i5-10600K with Base Clock 4.1GHz/Boost Clock 4.8GHz and six cores and twelve threads are the cheapest of the lot, priced at USD 262.

The new Comet Lake-S processors support up to 2.5gigabit Ethernet, up to DDR4-2933 memory and feature integrated Wi-Fi 6 by default. Other features are Intel’s UHD Graphics 630 across the new 10th Gen Core lineup. However, Intel’s Core F series losses the integrated graphics but offers high performance at a much more affordable price, which makes it an ideal choice if you already have a graphics card.

Users who want the 10-core 5.3 GHz will have to buy the new top Core i9-10900K processor that has a unit price of USD 488 and keep it under 70 degree Celsius in order to enable Intel’s new Thermal Velocity boost. Not just that, despite the 125 W TDP listed on the box, Intel states that the turbo power recommendation is 250 W. The company has spoken to the motherboard manufacturers to have prepare for 320-350 W from their own testing, for maintaining that top turbo for as long as possible.
