Intel 10th Gen Desktop CPUs Launched Including 10 Core, 5.3GHz Core i9-10900K

After months of leaks and rumours, Intel has pulled back the curtain on its 10th generation “S-series” desktop chips, with the Core i9-10900K leading the pack. Leading the range is the new Core i9-10900K, which offers 10 cores, 20 threads, a 125W TDP, boosted speeds up to 5.3GHz, and, according to Intel, with a base speed of 3.7GHz, it’s “the world’s fastest gaming processor”, for around $500. The company is promoting improved clock speeds, which it says are important for lightly threaded workloads such as gaming, as well as more cores and threads across much of the lineup.

The highlight of the launch is the new top-end Core i9-10900K model which features 10 cores with Hyper-Threading. It has a base speed of 3.7Ghz and a maximum boost speed of 4.8GHz across all cores or 5.3GHz for one core. The highest speeds are achieved using Intel’s Turbo Boost Max 3.0, previously seen only in Core X-series models, and Thermal Velocity Boost, which depends on thermal and power variables. The TDP is rated at 125W and this model is fully overclockable. Intel’s recommended price is $488 (approximately Rs. 36,630 before taxes). A non-unlocked model, the 65W Core i9-10900, has base and boost speeds of 2.8GHz and 5.2GHz respectively.

And since Intel knows that it has an advantage with clock speed, it’s aiming to highlight that wherever possible. The updated Turbo Boost Max 3.0 feature, for example, will identify the two fastest cores on your chip and have them tackle the brunt of your workload. And there’s also “Thermal Velocity Boost,” a way for i9 processors to eke out a bit more speed when they’re under 70 celsius. That’s also how Intel is reaching that lofty 5.3GHz figure on a single core, but it’ll also deliver slightly higher boost speeds over all cores too.

Performance-wise, Intel claims the i9-10900K is 10 per cent faster than the last-gen 9900K in PUBG and 63 per cent faster than the three-year-old i7-7700K (remember, the i9 chips didn’t exist back then). The new processor is also around 18 per cent faster at 4K video editing than the last-gen chip, and 35 per cent faster than the 7700K. So yeah, it’s faster — though as usual, it’s probably not worth upgrading if you’re on a 9th gen chip.

Keeping with the speed theme, Intel is giving enthusiasts even more ways to overclock. There’s a redesigned Intel Extreme Tuning Utility, which gives you more control over voltage and frequency. It’ll also let you turn off hyperthreading on individual cores — which might seem counter-intuitive at first, but Intel explains it’s a useful way to reduce heat, every overclocker’s worst enemy.

The new processors also feature a thinner die along with a thicker copper IHS (integrated heat spreader), which should also help keep things cooler. That’s a smart move since all of Intel’s new chips still have higher TDPs (thermal design profiles) than AMD’s. The 10900K has a 125-watt TDP, for example, while AMD’s Ryzen 9 3900X’s is just 105-watts. (It’s worth noting that TDP is quite a fluid term, though, so we won’t know what that 125-watt number will translate to in real-world use until we can test a chip for ourselves.)

You can expect to see the unlocked “K” CPUs in May, but we don’t have a timeline for the other chips. Based on the specs alone, the Intel 10th-gen desktop processors seem like a solid upgrade for anyone with a 3-year old PC. Still, AMD now has the advantage when it comes to core count and architecture efficiency. Maybe next year we’ll finally see Intel’s desktop CPUs on 10nm, but by then AMD will have an even more refined process. Given just how many waves AMD has been making over the last year, Intel will really have to do something special to stand out in 2021.

Dell has launched the new Latitude 9510 as the latest offering in its premium commercial business-focussed laptop in India. Showcased at the CES 2020, the new 9000 Latitude series is targeted at enterprise customers and is claimed to offer the longest battery life on any 15-inch business PC with a claimed up to 34 hours battery life. The laptop also comes with 5G-ready design, adds Dell. The laptop will be available in two variants — as a standard clamshell laptop or as a 2-in-1 convertible. It’s also said to be the first Project Athena certified commercial PC, featuring Intel’s 10th Gen vPro CPUs.

“GORE Aerogel, the thinnest insulating material known to man, controls heat dissipation to maximize performance, while adaptive thermal performance and a super low panel enable even more battery savings,” adds Dell in a statement. The laptop also comes with an Active Stylus Pen, which magnetically attaches to one side offering a quick way to take notes or sketch ideas. The Dell Latitude 9510 laptop starts at Rs 1,49,000. Since this is a business-centric laptop, Dell doesn’t have pre-set configurations on sale. In fact, you’ll have to reach out to Dell through its website and wait for a representative to get back to you to proceed further.

Dell Latitude 9510 specifications

The Dell Latitude 9510 is said to be the first business laptop, certified by Intel’s Project Athena programme. It ensures the laptop has certain qualities, such as the ability to wake the laptop from sleep in under a second, long battery life, and a premium build. The Latitude 9510 is claimed to be Dell’s smallest and lightest business PC, weighing around 1.4kg.

It features a 15.6-inch full-HD display, an aluminium body, and the 2-in-1 model has a touch panel with Gorilla Glass DX protection. The laptop can be configured with up to a 10th Gen Intel Core i7 vPro CPU and the optional 5G modem. It can also be configured with up to 16GB of RAM and up to a 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD.

Connectivity includes two Type-C Thunderbolt 3 ports, a USB Type-A (USB 3.2) port, a microSD card reader, an optional SmartCard reader, and a headphone jack. The Latitude 9510 also features the Dell Optimiser program, which monitors yours usage in the background and is said to help launch apps faster or automatically lock or unlock your laptop based on your presence (through Intel’s Context Sensing technology).
