Intel to Use 5-digit Processor Model Numbering with 10th Gen?
A bunch of us is possible to be wondering how Intel could well number its consumer-segment processors after the i9-9980XE, or the ninth technology Core most steadily, and hoping for a critical branding alternate or at least a alternate within the mannequin numbering design. It appears, Intel will brazen it out with a 5-digit mannequin number and follow the hot design. Going by this design, the successor to the Core i7-9700K is possible to be the Core i7-10700K, as an illustration. Intel jumped from Three-digit to 4-digit as it transitioned from 1st gen Core to 2nd gen as it ran out of Three-digit numbers with the Core i7-9xx. It is now working out of 4-digit numbers.
Proof of 5-digit number surfaced when Thai fanatic TUM_Apisak tweeted a screenshot of a UL Benchmarks Systeminfo page describing an unreleased Core i5-10210U, which could well be a cell processor in line with the 10 nm “Ice Lake-U” silicon slated for late-2019. With a nominal clock-tempo of 1.60 GHz and “reported” tempo of two.10 GHz, the Turbo Boost frequency of this 4-core/eight-thread chip is rated at nearly Three.Eighty GHz. Japanese fanatic Komachi Ensaka confirmed this with three diverse mannequin numbers: i3-10110U, i5-10510U, and i7-10710U.
