The chipmaker will refresh the UI and add per-core tweaking options to one-up AMD Ryzen Master and appeal to more first adopters.

Intel just announced its entire lineup of Comet Lake-S processors earlier this morning ranging from the 35 W Celeron G5900T all the way up to the unlocked 125 W Core i9-10900K. The Intel Xtreme Tuning Utility (XTU) software will receive a few new features as well to coincide with the launch.

The update focuses on giving users more control over their processors down to their individual cores. For example, users will now be able to pick what core count and thread count to operate on, disable or enable Hyper-Threading on a per core basis, and set different voltages at different frequencies from a convenient graph. Outside of overclocking, XTU will also receive a UI refresh with support for 7 additional languages.

Intel didn't go into much detail beyond the bullet points below which leaves a lot of exploring and tweaking for the rest of us to discover. We last had an overview of XTU back in 2018 and we expect to update it in the weeks ahead to see if the new features are anything to write home about.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
