Intel has announced 32 new models in its 10th Generation Desktop processor lineup which include new Celerons and new core-i3 up to i9s. AnandTech has created two tables with each model along with its corresponding specifications and pricing. 

Alongside the new processors, Intel introduces Turbo Boost Max 3.0 and Thermal Velocity Boost for the i9 and i7 processors. Turbo Boost Max 3.0 is the maximum clock speed a core can reach under load while Thermal Velocity Boost is the clock speed a CPU can achieve when kept under 70 degrees.

The new Core i9 processors now go up to 10-cores and 20 threads with the top-end model capable of boosting up to 5.1GHz. If kept under 70 degrees, the top of the line 125 TDP i9-10900K and i9-10900KF can clock up to 5.3GHz.

While the new i7s now go up to 8-cores and 16 threads. The top-end i7-10700K and i7-10700KF now boost up to 5.1GHz.

For the mainstream i5 line-up, Intel has upgraded them to 6-cores and 12 threads across the line. The top model i5-10600K and i5-10600KF has a bad clock of 4.1GHz but can boost up to 4.8GHz.

The i3 models have also been bumped up to 4-cores and 8 threads but with no new i3 model that can be overclocked. The top tier i3-10320 has a base clock of 3.8 GHz that can boost all the way to 4.6GHz.

All these new processors use a new chipset and socket that necessitates a new motherboard that is compatible with the new LGA-1200 socket. This new socket supports extra pins that could support PCIe 4.0 support in the future. 

In the past, Intel has reserved its Hyperthreading support in their higher tier processors but now all models support it. This along with more attractive pricing compared to past generations is clear that Intel is taking the new Ryzen chips from AMD seriously.
