Today, Intel is announcing its 10th generation desktop processors, starting with cheap dual-core Celeron processors and ranging all the way up to the Core i9-10900K with 10-cores and 20-threads. 

The Core i9-10900K is going to take over from its predecessor, the 9900K, as ‘the world’s fastest gaming processor’. Under the right conditions, this CPU can reach a boost speed of up to 5.3GHz, while also offering plenty of cores and threads for software to take advantage of. Intel’s presentation on 10th Gen also boasts real-world performance gains compared to previous generation processors and versus three-year old gaming PCs.

According to Intel, users can expect up to 18 percent faster 4K video editing versus 9th Gen CPUs, as well as higher frame rates across a range of games, including PUBG, Monster Hunter World Iceborne and Mount & Blade Bannerlord II.
