Intel Core i3-10100F

The Intel Core i3-10100F is an entry level quad-core processor for desktop PCs based on the Comet Lake-S architecture. It offers four cores clocked at 3.6 – 4.3 GHz with HyperThreading / SMT support (8 threads). The CPU is still manufactured in 14nm++ and does not feature an integrated graphics card. Compared to the older Coffee Lake Core i3-9100F, the i3-10100F offers a 100 MHz higher Boost speed, HyperThreading and support for faster DDR4 memory (2666 MHz).

The performance should be similar to the older i3-9100F and therefore situated in the lower end of desktop processors. That means it offers enough performance for office tasks and low end gaming.

Intel specifies the CPU with a TDP of 65 Watt. For desktops that means that the processor won’t need big cooling solutions and can be used in small cases.
