Intel Comet Lake-S CPU Arriving in 2020 and Price

According to the reports from Intel, their 10th Generation ‘Comet Lake-S’ CPUs support on LGA 1200 Socket and processor takes 125W TDP. Compared to yesterday’s leak which was dodgy at best, the data posted by the source looks to be more reliable and reveals a few new details about the 400-series platform itself which will be supporting Intel’s 10th Generation processors.

Intel 10th Gen ‘Comet Lake’ CPU Lineup ‘Alleged’ Specifications:

Desktop Platform Consumer Roadmap


  • Excellent Multi-Thread Performance
  • Up To 10 processor cores and 20 threads
  • Enhanced core and memory overclocking
  • Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0

Media and display capabilities:

  • Rec.2020 & HDR Support
  • HEVC 10-bit HW decode/encode
  • VP9 10-bit HW decode
  • Premium UHD / 4K Content Support
  • Integrated USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10 Gb/s)

Support for integrated Intel Wireless-AX:

  • Gigabit Wi-Fi 802-11ax (160MHz) & Bluetooth 5
  • Support for next-generation Intel Optane memory

Other Features:

  • Support for Thunderbolt 3 technology
  • Support for Intel Smart Sound Technology with quad-core audio DSP
  • Support for Modern Standby

One big change to the platform will be the number of available PCIe lanes. Intel isn’t pushing the move to PCIe Gen 4 yet like AMD, but they are planning to offer more PCIe lanes compared to AMD’s Ryzen 3000 / X570 platform. The platform details mention up to 46 I/O lanes, 30 of which will be provided by the chipset. That means that the CPUs will still feature 16 PCIe lanes, but the PCH will boast a higher number.

There will be 24 PCIe 3.0 lanes while the rest will be powering different I/O channels. There is also support for Intel’s Optane memory on the LGA 1200 platform, so that is something to look forward too. The platform block diagram is also provided which seems to suggest that DDR4-2666 (native) compatibility will be retained.
