Intel announced its new gen PC processors and claims it’s the fastest gaming processor ever made. The i9 processor can reach a speed of 5.GHz!
The past few years were pretty hard to Intel – The CEO stepped down, their products had security issues, AMD developed high-quality products and other problems.
But Intel showed us why they have been the leading company in this field for many years and now they announced their 10 Gen desktop processors, and it seems promising.
At the front of its new cores – Series S, Intel developed the 10900K processor – i9 processor, 10 cores and 20 threads which can get to 5.Ghz. Intel claims this is the best gaming processor that has been ever made. These processors are based on the Skylake 14-nanameter architecture and the cost of the best processor is about $500.
Along-side the 10900K processor, Intel announced few other processors:
10700K – i7 with 8 cores and 16 thread with a speed of 5.1GHz – $374
10600K- i5 with 6 cores and 12 thread with a speed of 4.8GHz – $262
All processors has Turbo Boost 3.0 which brings up the speed of the PC as long as its temperature is less than 70 degrees.
Intel also developed new cores for customers who doesn’t need this kind of performances.
Zen 2 processor with 8 cores @ 3.8 GHz, RDNA 2-class graphic engine, 16 giga RAM and 1TB SSD of storage.
This machine will cast games at 4K @ 60 FPS, up to 120 FPS and will support the RayTracing technology that present light effects for more realistic pictures.
The usage of SSD hard-drive is one of the main reasons that the console’s performances at the demo – 40 second difference in loading time between Xbox One and Series X.
Microsoft shared a new feature called Xbox Velocity Architecture which combine hardware and software architecture and allows games to get the resources they need fast. Now developers can skip long cut scenes to load the next chapter of the game.
The controller is going to change as well – the controllers will fit the hand of an 8-year-old but it won’t worsen the gaming experience of someone with big hands. The controllers will be charged with USB type C.
We will be able to expand the memory of the console. Don’t get to excited because these special hard drives will cost about $200, so we will have to be very careful about it.
