6 Core 12 Thread i5-10500E Processor From Intel Is Leaked Without Turbo Boost Feature

Looks like Intel is having a hard time to keep up with AMD’s 7nm Zen 2 architecture efficiency. As a result, Intel might be cutting Turbo Boost feature of single, dual and quad core burst frequency functions for some of it’s upcoming Comet Lake CPUs. Freshly leaked Core i5-10500E is a great example running at fixed 3.1 GHz base frequency just like Pentium G5400 processor’s base 3.7 GHz clock frequency. Latest leaks about i5-10500E processor came from popularly trusted twitter user _rogame.

For obvious reasons, Intel didn’t cut iGPU feature down to accommodate basic graphics solutions. Amazing multicore ability of i5-10500E is expected because of 6 Core 12 Thread configuration. It really is the hottest competitor of Ryzen 5 3500X or Ryzen 3 3300X in real world situations. However, Ryzen 5 3600 might dominate i5-10500E CPU by having AMD’s XFR Boost clock function which can push frequencies up to 4.3 GHz depending on what cooler you attach.

Probably, Core i5-10500E will not be coming in separate retail unit but it might power some OEM desktop PCs like Lenovo, Dell or HP in near future. Having a fixed base clock without Turbo Boost capacity may slow down gaming fps numbers during a heavy shootout in competitive online esports titles.
