This spring, Intel will release the new Comet Lake desktop processors. We have already written about them more than once, but let’s recall the main thing: the CPU will retain the old 14-nanometer process technology and the old architecture, supposedly they will move to the new LGA 1200 socket, and 10-core models will appear in the lineup.
Today, the CPU Core i7-10700F lit up on the web. The last letter means that the GPU will be disabled, but in all other respects it should be identical to the regular Core i7-10700.
Core i7-10700F – an eight-core processor with a base frequency of 2.9 GHz. This is 100 MHz less than the current Core i7-9700, but the new product, unlike the current model, should support Hyper-Threading.
So, the processor lit up in the test, and this is not Geekbench, but Cinebench R20. In it, the upcoming CPU scored 492 and 4781 points in single-threaded and multi-threaded modes. This is almost identical to the Ryzen 7 3700X.
If we assume that the Core i7-10700F will be identical in price to the Core i7-9700F, then we will talk about 300 dollars. About the same number is now being asked for the Ryzen 7 3700X, although in some stores it can already be found significantly cheaper. In any case, we can hope that we finally get some intelligible competition from Intel.
