Intel introduces new 10th-generation desktop chips – some of which could equip future iMacs

At the beginning of the month, we talked here about new tenth generation processors announced by Intel those chips, however, were intended for laptops (and some of them could even reach a future MacBook Pro). Today, the giant has made a new announcement, this time focused on processors for desktops.

The new chips are from the family "Comet Lake", which is from the tenth generation but still brings 14 nanometer architecture to the family "Ice Lake"It is more advanced, also from the tenth generation, but already has a 10nm architecture.

In total, the ad brings no less than 32 (!) New chips among families Core i9, i7, i5, i3, Pentium and Celeron. Some of them, especially in the i5 and i7 lines, may be good candidates for processors for a future update of the iMac (which is something that has been circulating Apple rumors for some time, incidentally).

Among the processors announced today, the “apple of the eye” responds by the name of Core i9-10900K. It is a chip focused on the public gamer, with 10 cores (20 threads) and base frequency of 3.7 GHz and can reach 4.8 GHz with the technology Turbo Boost 3.0, which identifies the faster cores of the processor to intensify their activity (the feature is available on several of the more powerful chips in the new line, it is worth noting).

For anyone looking for details on each of the new 32 processors, the AnandTech kindly summarized the characteristics of all of them:

Other features brought by the new Intel processors include support for Wi-Fi 6 and connections 2.5G Ethernet. The chips will begin to be distributed to manufacturers and retailers in the next month and, for us, the expectation of adoption by Ma in its future all-in-one computer remains.
