Intel quietly launched a new processor, the Core i3-10100F, which wants to become the new king of the low-cost gaming market. For this, it offers a configuration of 4 cores and 8 processing threads at a Base / Turbo frequency of 3.60 / 4.30 GHz with 6 MB of L3 cache with a TDP of 65W.
With this configuration it comes to face with the AMD Ryzen 3 3300X, also with 4 cores and 8 processing threads, but which operates at a Base / Turbo frequency of 3.80 / 4.30 GHz with 16 MB of L3 cache while maintaining the same 65W TDP. Like Intel’s option, neither comes with integrated graphics.
As an example, the Intel Core i3-10100 costs 115 euros, which is the same CPU but with integrated graphics, so the Core i3-10100F should be slightly cheaper. According to the reviews of the Intel Core i3-10100, the Ryzen 3 3300X offers 9.2 percent more performance, but the problem is when we talk about performance per dollar invested, where the Ryzen 3 3300X is 18 percent better, and that is why this CPU wants to further improve the price to be positioned as an option to consider since in terms of performance it is worse than the AMD CPU even with an overclock by BCLK, where the Intel CPU improves its yield by only 2.7%.
