10 gaming PCs using Intel’s 10th-Gen core CPUs

These PCs use the 'world's fastest gaming processor,' according to Intel

The 10th-generation Intel Core S-Series processors have been on the market for a few months, and the good news is there‘s a healthy range of pre-built and custom gaming desktop PCs available from OEMs and system builders sporting the chips that can reach 5.3 GHz clock speeds.

The desktop processors, code-named Comet Lake S, launched back in April amid increasing competition from AMD's Ryzen processors. While the processors rely on an advanced version of Intel‘s old 14-nanometer manufacturing node, the company managed to bring the core count up to 10 and the turbo frequency up to 5.3 GHz, thanks to the company’s new Intel Thermal Velocity Boost.

Intel has called the lineup‘s flagship Core i9-10900K, the “world’s fastest gaming processor,” but the company has pitched other, lower-end SKUs, including the six-core Core i5 variants, as worthy processors for modern gaming experiences too.

What follows are 10 cool gaming PCs that are using Intel‘s 10th-generation Core processors in combination with discrete graphics cards from Nvidia or AMD. The given prices for the systems do not include any discounts or sales that may be happening.

Pricing is listed in in US dollars where Australian pricing is unavailable.
