The first pictures of Intel’s upcoming Core i5-10400 processor have been leaked to the web. This 10th generation processor will be built on the 14nm “Comet Lake-S” silicon. The complete against AMD Intel will be introducing HyperThreading and increasing L3 cache size to their Core i5 desktop processors. The Core i5-10400 is a 6-core, 12-thread part with 12 MB of shared L3 cache. This is compared to the 8th and 9th gen Core i5 desktop chips that were 6-core, 6-thread with 9 MB of L3 cache.
The non-K series of the 10th generation processors will have a 65W TDP. The K and KF models will officially go up to 125W. By adding HyperThreading and increasing L3 cache sizes these chips should be very competitive.
