Is this the upcoming 10th Gen Intel Core i5-10400 CPU? – Pictures and Some Specs Revealed

Intel Core i5 series processors now packs 6 cores, with Hyper-Threading!

Recently, a photo of an alleged 10th gen Intel Core i5-10400 processor surfaced on the web. Rumors about Intel’s upcoming CPU have been circulating the internet since early this year. The Core i5-10400 isn’t the first; last month rumors regarding the Core i9-10900(K / KF) also surfaced. So, at this point it is no longer a surprise that the 10th gen CPUs are coming and they are just around the corner. Intel’s 10th gen CPU, or Comet Lake-S, is based on a 14nm fabrication processes. It will support the new LGA1200 socket and a new Intel 400 series motherboard chipset. More details on the Core i5-10400 below.

Intel Core i5-10400 CPU Specs Revealed

The upcoming 10th gen Intel Core i5-10400 CPU is said to feature 6 cores and 12 threads. It features a base clock speed of 2.90 GHz and a Turbo Boost speed of 4.3GHz, with an all-core Turbo Boost of 4GHz. Reminds me of my Core i7-8700K, but without overclocking.

However, this is a non-K series chip, meaning it will have an unlock multiplier with a TDP of 65W. You can’t overclock this, unlike the K or KF series chips.

Reports also suggest that the Core i5-10400 will be priced below $200 USD and will potentially compete with AMD’s Ryzen 5 3600 CPUs. Although, I think the Core i5-10400 may be having a hard time beating AMD’s Ryzen 5 CPU.

Intel Core i5 10400 CPU Specs

New socket could mean that the Intel Comet Lake-S CPUs are not backward compatible with the current 300 series motherboards with socket LGA 1151. The 10th gen series is also expected to be announced or release this coming April 2020.

What do you think of the Core i5-10400 CPU? Not very exciting if you ask me.
