    Good to see some more competition - hopefully AMD will reduce some of their prices too.

    Thank you AMD for bringing Hyper Threading to the entire Intel stack.

    But another boring release of the same thing every year

    Re: Intel releases 10th Gen Core chips for mainstream desktop

    No thanks, my 3700x is doing fine and I will be able to fit a couple more generation on my current board.

    Will be interesting to see performance along with power draw and heat on these.

    Great, here comes the spam from all the media of the mediocre board upgrades to Z490.

    But they gotta do it, if they don't they lose money.

    Re: Intel releases 10th Gen Core chips for mainstream desktop

    Honestly I'm still going AMD when I upgrade purely on more cores etc but I'm not going say no to some more competition for better pricing

    Having said that, we all know how those headline speeds on intel cpu's are only going to be short bursts or we'll need some seriously meaty cpu cooling, sad thing is the 'normal' consumer won't realise that.

    The i3s don't support ECC anymore, per Intel's ark. Previous gens always did, but I guess now it's Xeon E or nothing.

    thinking maybe I can use the Core i9-10900KF to replace my Oil Central Heating boiler with a water loop

    Who's correct, Hexus says they've shaved off 50-100 microns from the die, other outlets say it's 300 microns and only on the K series.

    Re: Intel releases 10th Gen Core chips for mainstream desktop

    So they are dead in the water already (and needs a new motherboard!!!) and AMD is already sorting the next generation out of release at the end of the year (maybe)

    Well if you're buying from new its not doa or upgrading from older platform. AM4 has 1 more generation and 1200 has this and another generation. So you could even argue 1200 socket will last longer

    Been burnt by the ever changing sockets once, not again. The improvements for each 'generation' aren't enough to justify another £100 for someone who builds their own.

    Interesting that all have hyper-threading. Some have argued hyper-threading poses a risk.

    I often use 'good' desktops as cheaper workstations, and when you are compute bound, hyper-threading often doesn't add any performance gain.
