Intel Core i7-10510Y
The Intel Core i7-10510Y is an extremely power efficient quad-core SoC for small laptops and tablets based on the Comet Lake (CML-Y) generation and was announced in 2019. Compared to the similar Amber Lake processors (e.g. Core i7-8500Y), the only difference are two additional cores in the top models (except i3-10110Y). The processor cores are clocked between 1.2 and 4.5 GHz (all 4 cores 3.2 GHz max). Thanks to HyperThreading 8 threads can be used. Compared to the slower i5-10310Y, the level 3 cache is the full 8 MB of the chip. More information on Comet Lake and all the models and articles on it can be found& here.
Thanks to the high clock speeds and the two additional cores, the processor performance of the i7-10510Y is very good for its class and should outclass the old Core i7-8500Y in multi threaded applications. The performance, however is highly depending on good cooling and high TDP settings in the BIOS.
The integrated graphics adapter however is still the same as in the previous generations. The Intel UHD Graphics 615 runs at 300 - 1050 MHz. Furthermore, the SoC integrates a VP9 and H.265 de- and encoder.
The Core i7 has a default TDP of 7 W (also known as the Power Limit 1). This can be changed by an OEM to anything between 4.5 W and 9 W if so desired, with clock rates and performance changing correspondingly. Either way, this CPU is a great option for passively cooled tablets, laptops, mini-PCs.
Core i7-10510Y is manufactured on a fairly old, as of late 2022, 14 nm Intel process for subpar energy efficiency.
