Good news Marvel fans! Intel is catering to your needs and tastes with the release of its Avengers-themed 10th-gen processors.
Intel will be releasing special Avengers Edition 10th-Gen processors for a limited run. With a new KA designation for the code numbers, the new processors will include special editions of the Core i5 10600KA, Core i7 10700KA, and Core i9 10900KA.
Some tweets have revealed pixelated images of the special edition processors.
Intel told Tom’s Hardware that the KA chips are real, saying, “The listing reference is related to an upcoming partner promotion featuring 10th Gen Intel Core processors. The “KA” designation is an ordering code only and not a new processor SKU.”
Intel’s Avengers processors are confirmed to be part of the company’s recent partnership with Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix, and the original story was made in collaboration with Marvel Entertainment. “Working with Intel as the exclusive CPU partner, the new Marvel’s Avengers game has been optimized to run on Intel Core processors to deliver a richer, more immersive gameplay experience,” the company said in a statement.
However, rather than being a new line of 10th-gen processors, the Avengers Edition processors are simply the same as the equivalent K chips but in new packaging and the “A” in the designation represents “Avengers.”
Currently, the special edition processors are only available in Vietnam. No word yet when it’s going to be available in the US and in other countries.
