We still don’t know when Intel plans to launch its 10th generation Core processors, but a new benchmark result suggests that the top i7 CPU will boost significantly higher than last generation’s 9700K.

A system rundown captured by APISAK is showing that the Core i7-10700K processor flaunts a stock core clock of 3.8 GHz and maximum turbo clock of 5.3 GHz.

In contrast, the 9th generation i7-9700K processor (Coffee Lake) maxed out at 4.9 GHz. It’s also faster than the i9-9900KS, which featured a maximum turbo clock of 5.0 GHz.

While there is no TDP listed, previous leaks have shown that the Core i7-10700K will consume 125 watts. This is an 8-core, 16-thread processor with 16 MB of cache.

The flagship of the Comet Lake-S processor family is the i9-10900K, which will feature Intel’s Thermal Velocity Boost technology. This is supposed to boost clock frequencies even further depending on temperature and power conditions.

A result from earlier this month suggested that the i9-10900K would boost to at least 5.1 GHz.

    Only because they changed the definition and practice on TDP

    Your CPU MELTED the PCB of my motherboard!!

    Intel: The TDP is only 95 watts.

    MELTED

    Intel: We don’t support overclocking so sorry.
