Intel i7 10th Gen Comet Lake Processor Specs Leaked – Can It Compete with AMD Ryzen 7 3800X?


    The Intel Core i7-10700K and Core i7-10700F Comet Lake desktop CPUs already have leaked benchmarks before their release so it’s not a big deal if both the processors are a hot topic to talk about. After all, we just saw some leaked images of the CPUs recently. But can they be a competition for Ryzen 7 3800X? The processors are yet not out in the market but their specifications are being told with some spices added and hence you can’t quote on somebody for these specs.

    AMD Ryzen vs Intel 10th gen Comet Lake

    Let’s have a look at their specs.

    The Core 10000 series (named Comet Lake) is based on Comet Lake microarchitecture and is fabricated on Intel’s 14nm process node. The variants are rumored to come with 8 cores and 16 threads with an L3 cache memory of 16MB as well as in three categories: Enthusiasts(125W), Mainstream(65W) and Low Power(35W) as per the power they consume and the level of performance they offer.

    The Enthusiast variant of the processor is expected to have a 3.8Hz base clock speed which can be clocked up to 5.1Hz. However, @TUM_APISAK on twitter claims that the processor can go up to 5.3Hz which is no less speed and it can be true because of the Thermal Velocity Boost feature used by Intel.

    Intel Core i7-10700T BX8070110700T 8/162.04.41635

    *These specs are RUMORED.

    The main difference between an i7-10700KF and i7-10700K is the integrated graphics that comes along with the i7-10700K. The interesting part is that the TDP(thermal design power) of these two variants in 125W which is just a bit less than the i9-9900K’s 127W TDP.

    The Ryzen 7 3800X has a 105W TDP. But the Intel’s rating is a bit different and it is expected that its peak power consumption will be far greater when the clock is boosted. If the benchmarks are to be trusted, then both the Intel’s and AMD’s processors are a tough competition not considering the power consumption.

    Now comes the part where we look at the differences between the two( the top variants of course ;P)

    The Ryzen 3800X scores 308.90 GOPS with an efficiency of 2.74 GOPS/W whereas i7-10700KF scores up to 294.33 GOPS and 1.18 GOPS/W with more power consumption(peak up to 250W). The i7 would pull more than twice the power of its competitor.

    Currently, all we can do is wait for their release and actual specifications for a more accurate comparison but it surely is going to be interesting.
