Rumor mill: If you’re contemplating a 10-Core Comet Lake-S chip however don’t wish to pay over $500 for a Core i9-10900Okay, a less expensive possibility might be on its manner. According to a Geekbench entry, a Core i9-10850Okay is within the works, and it sounds similar to the flagship processor.
The information comes from Twitter person and common leaker Tum_Apisak, who posted a hyperlink to the Geekbench result for the Core i9-10850Okay. Assuming it’s actual, the chip has the identical 10-core/20-thread configuration because the Core i9-10900Okay whereas additionally boasting 20MB of L3 cache and 256KB of L2 cache per core. No point out of the TDP however anticipate it to be round 125W.

The Core i9-10850Okay managed a single-core rating of 6244 and multi-core rating of 37794, which could be very near what the Core i9-10900KF (disabled iGPU) achieves.
The solely actual distinction between the 2 chips are the clock speeds. The upcoming CPU’s base clock is down as 3.6 GHz, making it simply 100 MHz slower than the Core i9-10900Okay. It can enhance as much as 5.18 GHz, whereas its sibling can hit 5.Three GHz with Thermal Velocity Boost (TVB), suggesting the Core i9-10850Okay lacks this characteristic.
There’s all the time an opportunity that this will likely be an OEM-only chip reserved for gadget producers, however whether it is coming to the retail market, anticipate it to be round $30 to $50 cheaper than the opposite 10-core Comet Lake-S CPU.
Assuming the Core i9-10850Okay goes to be a client product, it is maybe Intel’s response to AMD’s 3600XT, 3800XT and 3900XT components, that are as a consequence of launch tomorrow and promote for $249, $399, and $499, respectively.
