    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.

    Why would this quad core sway you over an AMD Zen 2 quad? Just curious

    It would since Zen2 Quads don't exist yet - the 3400G is Zen+ with the 2400G being vanilla Zen. Looks like we'll have to wait for a 4400G before Zen 2 Quads are on the market.

    I read a blog post that suggested that the best thing Intel could do in the short term is to effectively add HT to the 9th gen CPUs - if this is accurate then it looks like the 10th gen may well end up that way.

    To be fair the price I got my Ryzen 2600 for including motherboard etc. I can see how any Intel offering would sway me...
    Old puter - still good enuff till I save some pennies!

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

    Is it just me that sees "Core i3-10100 " and reads a bunch of binary that basicalls says "Core i3-20" ?? Part of me wants to convert it to ASCII, but i3-DC4 doesn't make much sense.

    Perhaps I've just been in this business too long

    But honestly, these days I see a quad core and compare it to a Raspberry Pi. Even with HT turned on I hope they aren't expecting too much money for these.

    Plus I’m still a little sceptical on the compatibility & ease of doing a Ryzen build, as well as their power consumption and I’ll be using it for Photoshop/Light room & some gaming, all of which still favour Intel's

    All that said I wouldn't say I’m completely swayed by it, I’d still like to know more first and I haven’t totally ruled Ryzen out.

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

    considering one of the mitigations was to DISABLE HT... they just opened the door on the i3s wider...

    GG Intel.

    Still when their yields for 10nm are so trash they going to skip to 7nm by 2022, I guess you have to do something to stop the sucking chest wound that AMD have done to their sales figures.
    They dropped 3bil of cash to cut prices to keep ppl buying Xeons and desktop chips.

    If you're doing all that, why are you focusing on a quad core i3? Budget restraints?

    By and large, compatibility issues are a small fraction/few and far between. You may lose some optimisations with certain things, however. Power consumption core for core is better on Zen 2 than Intel 14nm++ when they ramp it up to max to continue competition.

    Gaming is fair enough but at the quad core bracket and that price range it's minor percentages.

    Do these things overclock or at least boost? The headline 3.6GHz in this article isn't going to be the ultimate in gaming, so unlike the high end I'm struggling to see an Intel advantage.

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

    With intel , We, the public will be able to buy the low wattage version 35w (possibly less pls ?) of these chips. Try buying a GE version pf the 2400G or 3400G .. simply not available @ retail. So I for one, welcome our Hyperthreaded Overlords.
    Sounds just right to replace my 2500K ...
