Intel might be bringing huge surprise for mainstream gamers by upgrading Comet Lake S desktop Core i5 lineup with 6 Cores and 12 Threads plus 12MB Cache running on 3.4 GHz base clock chip, which is still based on 14nm++ technology. All these information have been detected by InstLatx64 on Twitter where this user got it from Intel’s GFX database on CPUINFO log category.
The good news about this sensational decision by Intel may be including Hyperthreading Technology for Core i5 desktop type of CPUs after a decade past. Last time gaming community would taste 1st gen i5-650 with 2 Cores and 4 Threads in 2009. Later generations were staying with only 4 Cores without Hyperthreading. Since 2017 and up until now, Ryzen 5 1600, 2600 and 3600 are enjoying double extra threads to beat 6 Core i5 Coffee Lake series in terms of streaming and heavy workloads. With little pinch of grain of salt all gamers have to wait for Intel Comet Lake S official release in the last quarter of this year.
