It is followed by unlocked Core i9-10900KF, which is overclockable with no integrated graphics. There is also Core i9-10900 and Core i9-10900F available as part of this lineup.

The Core i7 family includes the Core i7-10700K, Core i7-10700KF, Core i7-10700 and Core i7-10700F. The Core i5 family includes the Core i5-10600K, Core i5-10600KF, Core i5-10600, Core i5-10500, Core i5-10400 and Core i5-10400F. The Core i7-10700K, Core i7-10700KF, Core i5-10600K and Core i5-10600KF are overclockable. The processor family is rounded up by Core i3-10320, Core i3-10300, Core i3-10100, Pentium Gold G6600, Pentium Gold G6500, Pentium Gold G6400, Celeron G5920 and Celeron G5900.

Some of these processors have TDP of 65W while Celeron and Pentium have TDP of 58W. Intel is also low-power “T” SKUs which have a TDP of 35W. “Intel is committed to enabling the future of powerful desktop gaming by continuously pushing the performance boundary to deliver an amazing PC gaming experience,” said Brandt Guttridge, Intel senior director of the Desktop Products Group.

The single word to define the 10th gen Comet Lake-S family is performance. Intel claims up to 187 frames per second for in-game performance while streaming and recording. It promises up to 63 percent more frames per second compared with a three-year-old PC. It is up to 12 percent faster for video editing compared with the previous generation. Overall, the system promises up to 31 percent faster performance compared with a three-year-old PC.

With the 10th generation desktop processor family, Intel is offering Hyper Threading technology across Core i9 to Core i3 processors. There is also enhanced core and memory overclocking and support for Intel Ethernet Connection I225. The processors are also integrated with WiFi 6 AX201 for Gigabit+ connection. Intel is throwing a lot of benchmarks around but as we have observed the industry has its own way of benchmarking processors now. For now, we know that these processors will become available starting in May via OEMs and channel system integrators.
