A leaked Cinebench R20 listing was spotted for the unannounced Intel i7-10700F. The Comet Lake process barely edges out the Ryzen 7 3700X in both the single and multi-threaded tests.

Single core and multi-core Cinebench R20 scores were recently spotted for what appears to be the Intel i7-10700F, an unannounced 8-core, 16-thread Comet Lake part. The alleged i7-10700F features a 2.9 GHz base clock, on par with leaked specs for the vanilla i7-10700.

The i7-10700F scored 4781 on the multi-core test and 492 on the single core test. The single-threaded score is approximately 2 percent higher then Ryzen 7 3700X, a singularly unimpressive feat, considering that the 3700X has been out since last July. Meanwhile, the multi-threaded score is well within the margin of error.

From Intel nomenclature, it's evident that the 10700F will perform identically to the 10700, albeit sans an integrated GPU. This will allow Intel to double down on cost-performance by offering the 10700F as a slightly cheaper option.

Facing intense pressure from AMD's upcoming Ryzen 4000 series, Intel is focusing on improving cost-performance with Comet Lake, according to extant leaks. This means delivering more cores and more threads across the board, though without much in the way of architectural tweaks.

As Comet Lake is Intel's fourth Skylake refresh, we don't expect the i7-10700F to be anything particularly new. As an 8-core 16-thread part, we expect performance to be more or less on par with the i9-9900, albeit selling for i7-9700 money.

I've had a passion for PC gaming since 1996, when I watched my dad score frags in Quake as a 1 year-old. I've gone on to become a Penguin-published author and tech journalist. When I'm not traveling the world, gathering stories for my next book, you can find me tinkering with my PC.
