u/dkmokeish has posted an image of what might be this same user holding 2 boxes of what is apparently the Intel Core i3-10105F. This allegedly refreshed CPU is apparently on shelves in Malaysia as of now. Then again, it has no page on more official sources such as the OEM's Ark website right now.
Then again, presuming this apparent new refresh exists, it is most likely a regenerated i3-10100F. This processor, however low-end, was something of a groundbreaker as it was the first of its sub-series to support Intel Hyper-Threading Technology.
Therefore, it upgraded to 8 threads rather than the more predictable 4. It was also rated for up to 128GB of DDR4-2666 RAM, as well as a maximum bandwidth of 41.6 GB/s. It also seems to have the LGA 1200 socket in common with its i3-10105F replacement.
Then again, this putative Comet Lake refresh packaging gives no hint as to its TDP or cache. It does, however, suggest that the new possbile prospect yet again has no integrated graphics. Presuming the i3-10105F is indeed what it sounds like on this box, it is probably intended for cost-effective clients or tablets and might fall into the ~US$80-100 category.
