The Intel 10th-generation Core desktop processor (Comet Lake-S), which has not yet been released, has a wave of physical stealth. Let’s take a look at the i9-10900 in the hands of XFASTEST.
It is said to be an ES chip with 10 cores and 20 threads, a thermal design power consumption of 65W, and a base frequency of 2.5GHz.
Back to the real thing, the i9-10900 chip size is the same as the i9-9900KS, but the motherboard interface is changed to LGA1200, which requires a 400 series chipset. In addition, if you look closely, the lower left corner of the i9-10900 metal top cover is not 90-degree rounded but beveled.

However, XFASTEST confirmed with the actual measurement of the 400 series motherboard in hand that the cooling clip of LGA115x can still be used on the LGA1200 platform.
The PPT leaked earlier showed that the 10th-generation Core desktop processor has an 18% increase in multi-threading performance and an 8% increase in Windows program performance.
There is also a bit more strange. There are dealers selling 10th-generation Core i5/i9 on Xianyu, and they even claim to have ES positive Display in their hands. What is strange is that in CPU-Z, these processors are detected as LGA1159 interfaces. Confused for a while.
Looking at this situation, the 10th generation Core desktop processors will be available in March and April.
