The Core i9-10900K has popped-up on 3DMark indicating a 10-core 20-thread configuration with a base clock of 3.7 GHz and a boost clock of 5.1 GHz. Although the listing does not specify any other details, we do know that the 10th generation 10900K will be a 125W chip and require a new LGA 1200 socket.

We've reported recently about the possibility of Intel launching the Comet Lake-S desktop CPUs as early as March this year and now, the successor to the Core i9-9900K, the purported Core i9-10900K, has made its first appearance in the 3DMark database. 

Spotted by Twitter user @_rogame, the 3DMark listing shows the Core i9-10900K featuring 10 cores and 20 threads, a 3.7 GHz base clock, and a 5.1 GHz boost clock. The boost clock is of a single core, and the processor will likely be able to boost even higher under the right conditions thanks to Turbo Boost Max 3.0 and Thermal Velocity Boost.

Apart from the core counts and clocks, the 3DMark listing does not reveal anything else and shows the manufacturing process and TDP values as 0. However, we do know that the Core i9-10900K will be a 125W TDP part and be fabbed on the 14nm process. The CPU will require a new LGA 1200 socket motherboard and will come with UHD Graphics 730, advanced core and memory overclocking capabilities, 40 PCIe Gen3 lanes (16 from the CPU + 24 from the 400-series chipset), and a rumored 20 MB cache. 

While we do not yet know the pricing of the Core i9-10900K, the 10900F and the 10900KF variants are expected to cost around US$449 and US$499, respectively. It remains to be seen how well Comet Lake-S can perform compared to AMD Ryzen 3rd gen desktop offerings. Even if we were to see any tangible benefits, they will likely be overshadowed once Zen 3-based Ryzen 4th gen hits the market later this year.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
