At next week’s CES show, Intel will launch a tenth-generation Core desktop version of the Comet Lake-S series processor and 400-series chipset, leaving you wondering if Intel will still have to replace the LGA1200 slot in such a situation. On the plus side, though, the Tenth Generation Core not only upgrades the 10 core 20 thread, but also the low-end Core i3 is on the 4-core 8 thread, benefiting more than the high-end.
OC3D also reported on this, in fact, they reported the same content as we previously reported, the content alone need not be repeated, their own table can be very clear from the 10 generation Core processor from the high-end Core i9 to the low-end Core i3 changes.
The most visible of the entire ten-generation Core processor is not the Core i7/i9 high-end model, but the Core i3, because this generation not only upgraded the HT hyperthreadtor to 4C/8T specifications, but also increased the frequency, the weakest core i3-10100 processor is also 3.6GHz base frequency, 4.3GHz frequency, full core 4.1GHz.
This specification is much higher than the current Core i3-9100 processor 4-core 4-core 4-core thread, base 3.6GHz, single-core 4.2GHz frequency, HT hyperthreading technology back and forth for generations finally returned to the i3 processor.
What’s interesting about this OC3D report is their assessment that Intel has finally demoted the Core i7 processor to Core i3 from 2017 to 2020 – because the current Core i3-10100 is similar to the 2017 Kaby Lake series of Core i7, 4 core 8 threads. , frequency above 4.2GHz.
But don’t forget, the huge difference between the two series, the Core i3 is typically within $120, and the Core i7 series is $350, or 1/3 of the price.
Based on this change, the 2020 Core i3 processor compared to the 2017 Core i3 processor, performance is almost a dramatic change, from the previous 2C/4T to 4C/8T, which is already 100% performance improvement, plus frequency changes (the Core i3-7100 but 3.9GHz frequency, does not support frequency), that performance increased by 100%.
So don’t say Intel hasn’t improved CPU performance in recent years, at least the Core i3 processor has improved performance by at least 100% in more than two years.
Without AMD’s return to the high-performance CPU market in 2017, you might still be using a 4-core 8-threaded Core i7 processor in 2020.
