Intel's getting ready to launch its next-generation of desktop processors, which plan to offer customers more cores, higher TDP ratings and an all-new LGA1200 socket.  

Comet Lake-S will be Intel's response to AMD's Zen 2 series of desktop processors, and rumour has it that 10-core models with TDPs of 125W and 65W will be available to customers. 

XFastest has managed to release pictures of Intel's upcoming 10-core processors, revealing the company's new socket design and pin layout. Intel's socket LGA1200 is likely to be compatible with LGA1151 CPU coolers, but higher cooler TDP ratings will be required for Intel's planned 125W K-series processors.

Intel's Comet Lake-S processors will not be compatible with Intel's existing LGA 1151 motherboards, but are due to continue supporting PCIe 3.0 and offer a similar feature set to the company's existing CPUs. 

To offset this, Intel is likely to push features like WiFi 6 and 2.5Gb ethernet onto more mainstream motherboard design, alongside other small feature gains to increase the attractiveness of its 400-series chipsets. 

Below is an image which compares a Comet Lake-S series processor, the Intel i9-10900 (Left) and a Coffee Lake-S processor, the i9-9900KS (Right). Note the similar dimensions of these processors and the increased pin count on Intel's new LGA1200 socket.

Intel is expected to reveal its next-generation LGA1200 processors within the next two months.
