Intel Comet Lake 4C/8T Core i3 spotted in benchmark database

A benchmark result purported to be from a PC packing an Intel Core i3-10100 processor has been spotted in the SiSoft Sandra official live ranker online. Twitter chip detective Tum Apisak found the new Comet Lake processor entry just ahead of the weekend.

Mr Apisak noted that, from the data base entry and benchmark runs, the Core i3-10100 appears to have 4-cores and 8-threads, runs at 3.6GHz clock, and comes packing 4x 256kB L2 and 6MB L3 caches.

Compared to its 9th gen predecessors, the new Intel Core i3 improves on the offer with hyperthreading - and its 4C/8T configuration makes it comparable to a pricey Core i7 from a couple of years back.

The boost clocks aren't revealed in SiSoft Sandra but are expected to be in the region of 4.4GHz. Higher level i3 chips will offer improved clock speeds and possibly larger caches too.

TechPowerUp notes that the Comet Lake i3 chip's overall score of 382.61MPix/s in multimedia tests is "a significant step up from the roughly 290MPix/s of the i3-9100," over 30 per cent faster in fact. It goes on to inform that the Intel Core i3-10100 will be released and sold at around the $120 mark, competing against AMD's Ryzen 3 3200G.

Comet Lake chips are expected to officially debut early next year. As you can see, the Core i3 packs 4C/8T, and the i5 chips are expected to have 6C/12T, the i7 chips 8C/16T, and at the top end of the consumer space, Core i9s will come with 10C/20T.

Well, 30% is around the expected increase in performance with hyperthreading on with Intel processors. Breaking news!
Who remembers the good old days where you had i3 with its cores, i5 with some HT added, and then the i7 with cores and HT, unless you were mobile and then everything sucked…
Why do they find the need to change the basic's of the CPU, still…

It has never been simple XD. If you just look at the first gen i3 vs i5 they both had 2 cores and 2 lots of HT. Plus, the consumer should be more invested with what is value for money these days

Why was artificially turning HT off in the i5 so that they could charge more for turning it back on again in the i7 ever good days?
At last, something interesting from the Intel side of the fence. 4 core 8 threads, this could be right up my street for my next build. Hopefully we’ll see some official news soon.
