The Next Core i5 Desktop Processor will feature HyperThreading

It has been confirmed via a 3DMark results database entry that the 10th generation Core i5 desktop process will feature HyperThreading. The Core i5-10600 based on the 14nm “Comet Lake” silicon will be a 6-core, 12-thread part. Besides having HyperThreading these new processors will feature higher clock speeds than the 9th generation predecessors.

Looking at the 3DMark database entry the Core i5-10600 processor features 6 cores and 12 logical processors with a nominal clock speed of 3.3 GHz (a 200 MHz increase over the i5-9600). The Turbo Boost frequency was not properly detected. We could see that be a 100-200 MHz over what the i5-9600 boosts up to which is 4.6 GHz.

Adding HyperThreading to their Core i5 lineup will definitely help Intel remain competitive with AMD. Intel is expected to debut their 10th generation “Comet Lake” processors with the Z490 Express chipset in April 2020.
