Intel Comet Lake-S Final Specs and Prices Leak!
Mike Sanders / 9 months ago
All going well, we expect Intel to formally confirm their Comet Lake-S platform within the next few days (possibly tomorrow) with a release date expected for around the end of May. In a report via Videocardz, however, it seems that the cat may already be out of the bag as detailed ‘final’ specifications have leaked from the entire range. This also includes what their reported MSRP (base retail prices) will be!
Intel Comet Lake-S
The slides leaked appear to be genuine and conform with the various other reports we’ve seen surrounding Comet Lake-S since the beginning of the year. At a glance, they certainly look more than a little impressive, and Intel consumers will undoubtedly be scrutinizing these with some detail to pick what seems to be the best in terms of price point and performance.
Let’s, therefore, take a look at what’s been revealed and how this all pans out across the Comet Lake-S CPU series.
Specifications & Prices

With new Core S-Series processors Intel is introducing a refreshed Intel Extreme Tuning Utility with following features:
- Per-core HT Disable/Enable
- PEG/DMI OC
- Enhanced Voltage/Frequency curve controls
The new CPUs will feature thinner dies and thicker IHS, which in Intel’s own words should improve thermal performance.
- All Core K and non-K series (except F-models) feature Intel UHD Graphics 630
- Celeron features Intel UHD Graphics 610
- Intel Core: Two Channels DDR4-2933
- Pentium/Celeron: Two Channels DDR4-2666
PCIe 3.0 Lanes
- All Comet Lake-S CPUs feature 40 platform lanes
New 10th Gen Intel Core Desktop Processors Features
- NEW Up to 5.3 GHz with Intel Thermal Velocity Boost
- NEW Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0
- NEW Intel Hyperthreading Technology across Core i9 to i3 processors
- NEW Up to 10 cores with 20M Intel Smart Cache
- NEW Up to DDR4-2933 support
- NEW Enhanced Core & Memory Overclocking
- NEW Intel 400 Series Chipset
- NEW 2.5G Intel Ethernet Connection I225 (Foxville) support
I225 V2 (B2 stepping) is now in productions and works at 2.5GBE on all compliant 2.5GbE Link Partners.
What Do We Think?
On the surface, the Comet Lake-S range seems very decent. The biggest outstanding question marks, however, surround their power requirements and how hot they will run. While not 100% confirmed, we have heard various rumors (from differing sources) that these processors are going to be rather hungry in terms of wattages and also that at 100% load, they might be more than a little toasty (at least by their usual standards).
We will, of course, find out for certain when the NDA breaks and we can look to review some of these processors. For now, however, there’s more than a little to digest here to keep us all busy!
