This information is leaked by Germain retailer Lirpa Technologies and it’s good. They have accidentally let slip the specifications and probable performance of Intel’s upcoming Comet Lake desktop CPUs.
The chip title is Core i9-10999X, housing 16 cores and 32 threads running at a guaranteed all-core 5.0GHz. The core count doubles from this generation, intimating excellent performance that ought to give AMD’s 3rd Gen Ryzen chips a bloody nose. Also the most telling is the probable performance, as Lirpa has internally tested pre-production silicon, based on the SL00F stepping, on AMD’s favorite benchmark, Cinebench R20.
However, this chip though it won’t be cheap expect the price to come at a price of at least $999, and it should arrive at retails starting next month.
