Intel Comet Lake S 10 Core CPUs To Run on New 400 Series Chipset Motherboards

According to the recent leaks and developments, Intel’s 10 core Comet Lake S CPUs might require the LGA 1151 v3 sockets and a 400 series chipset motherboard.

Continuing with the trend of changing the socket layout every two years, Intel plans to revise its current LGA 1151 v2 with the newer LGA 1151 v3 socket.

Although there was a socket layout change when porting from LGA 1151 v1 to LGA 1151 v2, it wasn’t a big change. However, the newer LGA 1151 v3 contains additional pins for additional power draw for the processor, which calls for a big redesign and a lack of backward compatibility. It is worthwhile to note that there wasn’t support for backward compatibility on the previous layouts either.

The 8th and 9th generation Intel CPUs ran on Intel’s 300 series motherboards while the Comet Lake S 10 core CPUs have been leaked to target the 400 series, chipset family. The  Z490 series will prove to be the flagship motherboard for K series processors.

The 10th Gen Comet Lake S processors are based on 14nm and will feature better clock speeds, thanks to an improved process node. It’s expected to launch in Q1 2020 for consumers and Q2 2020 for commercial use.
