The Intel’s upcoming 10th generation Core i7-10700K will be an 8-core CPU with 16 threads. The total cache of the CPU will be 16 MB and its TDP will be 125W. It will also feature a base clock of 3.8 GHz, a boost clock of 5.0 GHz single-core and 5.1 GHz single-core with Turbo Boost Max 3.0. The price of the CPU is expected to be around $350-$400.
The other Intel’s upcoming 10th generation Core i5-10600K will be a 6-core CPU with 12 threads. The total cache of the CPU will be 12 MB and its TDP will be 125W. It will also feature a base clock of 4.1 GHz, a boost clock of 4.8 GHz single-core and 4.5 GHz all-core. The price of the CPU is expected to be around $220-$270.
Based on the that, we can say that the Core i7-10700K will compete against the AMD Ryzen 7 3800X and the Core i5-10600K – against the AMD Ryzen 5 3600X. Both CPUs feature the same cores and threads as their competitors. As for the differences we can point out that Intel’s are based on a 14nm process node while the AMD’s are based on a 7nm process node. Also Intel’s CPUs feature higher core clocks but at the cost of power efficiency.
Comparing to AMD Ryzen 3000 CPU, the Intel’s 10th generation CPU is ahead in single-core tests because of the faster clock speeds on a single-core. Meanwhile, it is clear that Intel requires such high clock speed in order to stay ahead of AMD Ryzen. On the other hand, in the multi-core tests you can see that AMD Ryzen CPUs are able to match the 10th Gen Intel Core lineup despite lower all-core frequencies.
In conclusion, we can point out some pros for the Intel’s upcoming 10th Gen Core Desktop CPU, namely: higher single-threaded performance and clock speeds, better overclocking capabilities, solid memory support and lower operating temperatures.
