Intel Core i3-10110U

Intel i3-10110U

The Intel Core i3-10110U is a dual-core SoC of the Comet Lake family. The i3 is designed for use in ultraportable laptops of the more affordable flavor as well as mini-PCs. It was announced in August 2019. Just like the other Comet Lake processors, this Core i3 features several advantages over the outgoing Whiskey Lake family including support for faster memory (up to LPDDR4-2933).

Core i3-10110U runs at 2.1 GHz to 4.1 GHz (only 3.7 GHz are reachable when under multi-thread load). Hyper-Threading support is enabled for 4 processing threads in total.

Performance

The average 10110U in our database shapes up to be a decent entry-level CPU, its multi-thread benchmark scores nearly matching those of AMD Ryzen 3 3250U and Intel Core i3-8145U. While not a whole lot faster than Intel's more affordable Pentium Gold and Pentium Silver processors, the i3 will still happily run most apps with virtually no annoying slowdowns.

Graphics

The Intel UHD Graphics 620 runs at up to 1,000 MHz. What makes this specific iGPU peculiar is that it only has 23 Execution Units at its disposal, not the 24 EUs typical for a UHD Graphics 620. Otherwise, it's the usual affair with 4K monitor support (up to three displays at the same time) and a hardware video decoder that's friends with VP9, AVC, HEVC but not the newer AV1 video codec.

Power consumption

A U-class processor, the Core i3 has 15 W TDP (also known as the long-term Power Limit). The value can be set to anything between 10 W and 25 W by an OEM if so desired. The 3rd generation 14 nm process Intel manufactures Core i3-10110U on is no longer cutting-edge, leading to suboptimal energy efficiency.
