S’han suposat que hi ha detalls filtrats a la plataforma Intel Comet Lake-S requerida… Ho has endevinat… una nova plataforma



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).

El pas a un nou sòcol i els requisits d’energia més estrictes donen a Intel l’oportunitat de refrescar de nou les seves ofertes de chipsets. Si tot segueix igual (i no hi ha cap raó que canviï), els nous chipsets Z470 i Z490 haurien de ser algunes de les ofertes de nivell més alt que els constructors s’uneixin a les plaques base. Les noves CPU Comet Lake-S encara es construiran en el procés ara molt refinat de 14 nm i suposadament mantindran els mateixos 16 carrils PCIe 3.0 que les actuals ofertes de refrescos de Coffee Lake. Es preveu que les noves ofertes de processadors d'Intel es desenvolupin el primer trimestre del 2020. Sources: XFastest, via Tom's Hardware
