Intel will launch the 10th generation desktop Core processor Comet Lake-S early next year, and while it is still a 14nm process and old architecture, it has to be said that the potential is endless, with core numbers and frequencies continuing to move forward. Previously, we have seen i3-10100, i5-10600, i5-10600T and unknown models i7, i9 and other ten generations of Core models, all support hyperthreading, i9 to do 10 core 20 threads, i3 also came to the 4 core 8 thread for the first time.
Today, a new Core i3-10300, or 4 Core 8 thread, with a base frequency of 3.7GHz and an average frequency of 4.2GHz, will also have a 6MB tri-level cache (an average of 1.5MB per core) in the UserBenchmark database.
Such specs have surpassed the seven-generation Core high-end i7-7700, which is also a 4-core 8 thread with a maximum turbo frequency of 4.2GHz and a base frequency of 3.6GHz, although the three-stage cache is slightly more than 8MB.
Unsurprisingly, the i3-10300’s thermal design power consumption will also be 65W.
More crucially, the new i3 was launched on the Alienware Aurora R11 host, indicating that it is already retail rather than an engineering sample, and that the release time is naturally not far off.
