[Wccftech]Intel Comet Lake-S 10 Core CPUs Allegedly Require New Socket
 
Quote:

Intel Comet Lake-S Supported on 400 Series Motherboards With New LGA Socket, 10nm Ice Lake-S Would Be Compatible With 495 Series Boards
It looks like Intel’s upcoming Comet Lake-S processors would end up being supported on a new socket, ending backward compatibility on existing motherboards. According to the latest leaks & listings within the new Intel server chipset driver, there are at least two chipset generations after 300 series that are planned for launch for next-generation processors.

Rumor

Why not? if 8th gen required new socket and MB cause of power requirements, we are looking at 2 more cores that Intel will push to 5.0Ghz+, thinks about 9900K real power requirement and add another 25% min.
9990XE is only 14C and it's crazy on Power consumption.
From Anand on 9990XE power requirements:

Other details about the chip that we have learned include that it will have a listed TDP of 255W, which means the peak power will be higher. Motherboard vendors will have to support 420 amps on the power delivery for the chip (which at 1.3 volts would be 546 watts), and up to 30 amps per core.
They wont go for low clock 10C to compete against 12~16C Ryzens, they will try push the clocks to make it look better on Gaming and ST performance.

Again new socket? C'mon can't we have nice things and when we have 14 nm for 5 years, at least change chipset at most once? Or is it yet another situation when Intel would create new chipset/socket just because, and then find it doesn't have enough manufacturing capacities?

They can go for 1151v3 :-)

Of course it will be. Gotta give us some reason to buy new MB’s.

Of course it does. Intel now has convinced people to literally defend them for under-designing the power output on their sockets and requiring a new one due to a mere core bump as a result. (Not to mention the fact it doesn't make sense: If a socket can run a 5Ghz 7700k, it can sure as heck run at least a 8700 at stock.)

I don't really have an issue with this. I know it bothers some people but I hate the possibility of limitations due to maintaining backwards compatibility. I would much rather have as much new stuff as possible with each release than have the ability to use an old motherboard.

I know that those reasons may not be why they do it, they sell chipsets as well as processors, but I am going to buy a new motherboard anyways. I have no use for a processor with no motherboard to put it in so I always get a new one with the new processor so that I can do something with the processor I am replacing.

True that.

This is a big piss off.

I had some sort of blind hope I could at least drop in intels up coming 10 core into my z390 board, but in the back of my mind I knew that was wishful thinking anyways.
