The Cinebench R20 scores are leaked and it also shows the Core i3-10300 and Core i3-10100’s specification. Looks like Intel is to release its upcoming 10th generation Comet Lake architecture based CPUs, included the Core i3.
The Core i3 units- 10300 and 10100!
These are four core/ eight-thread desktop CPUs clocked at 3.70/ 4.40 GHz base/ boost clock with 8 MB L3 Cache on the Core i3-10300 and 3.60/ 4.30 GHz with 6MB L3 Cache on the Core i3-10100. The TDP of these locked CPUs is 65watts.
|Single-Threaded Score||Multi-Threaded Score|
|Ryzen 3 3300X||2341||491|
|Ryzen 3 3100||2154||444|
These will be competing against the AMD Ryzen 3 3300X and the Ryzen 3 3100. The Ryzen 3 3300X can turn out to be a gem-of-a-CPU as its topology is very different than the rest of the Ryzen 3rd generation CPUs. As seen above, the Ryzen 3-3300X is performing better with a score of 2341/ 491 than the Core i3-10300 scoring 22330/ 457. But the Core i3-10100 scores 2284/ 448, keeping the Ryzen 3- 3100 behind it. The difference in Ryzen 3 3300X’s CCX deployment did help to gain an upper hand.
I just can’t help but be curious is the on-die design of the Ryzen 3300X is one of few changes that we get to see on the Ryzen 4000 series CPU?
No mid-range desktop CPU for the Comet Lake?
There’s no update about a mid-range Intel desktop chipset that would be paired with. Until now, Intel provided B series motherboards as a mid-end. There’s already the AMD B450 and the newly announced AMD B550 with the PCIe 4.0 x16 slot. The Intel Z490 is the only chipset supporting the LGA 1200 and the Comet Lake CPUs we know about. AMD B-series mid-range chipsets usually support overclocking. Intel’s B series desktop motherboard chipsets do not have the history of enabling overclocking feature. There were unlocked Pentium and Core i3 processors, which makes it is impractical to be paired with an expensive Z series motherboards. Maybe Intel will release a new nomenclature and enable overclocking.
