    Re: Intel adds eight Comet Lake processors to 10th gen lineup

    I find it really weird they are carving up their own Laptop stack and releases two very different processor ranges both for the architecture and node.

    My only real thoughts are that yields of 10nm are so low they have to supplement this by providing an "inferior" product as backup.

    Intel is competing with itself and that only creates confusion in the OEM and vendor markets.

    Nope, that doesn't look confusing at all....

    Man I miss the days where you could easily tell where a cpu sat in the pecking order

    AMD have got this down. Everything just makes sense and they don't have far too many CPUs. I've grown up building my own PCs and being up to date with CPU / hardware ranges. Even I am struggling to keep a handle on the Intel range. I suspect this is intentional. Confused buyers are not savvy buyers and may spend more just to ensure they're not missing out because they can't make sense of it all.

    That is almost certainly happening in the server market. There are so many sub skus, sku extensions and extra addons that if you're not paying attention 110% you're either paying more for unused features or buying an underpowered feature limited sku.

    Yeah, but 3.9-4.7GHz top speed. You don't want a fast clock on a laptop when idle, it needlessly wastes battery power.

    Point taken, but this confused buyer had a simple solution - ignore Intel, buy Ryzen.

    That may not suit everybody, but I got fed up with trying to make heads or tails of it, so decided to not bother. Life's too short, and AMD'll do just fine.

    Look interssting.

    I'm not in that market right now. Though, contemplating a PC build.

    All processors will happily clock below their base clock when idle, the base clock is the minimum speed it'll achieve *under load*. That is probably with the 15W setting though, the 25W SKUs (i.e. all of them) should improve on it - but not to 3.9 GHz with a 25W cooler.
