Intel Core i3-10100 vs Intel Core i7-10700K

Intel Core i3-10100

► remove from comparison

The Intel Core i3-10100 is a four-core desktop processor based on the Comet Lake S architecture. The processor clocks at 3.6 - 4.3 GHz and can process up to 8 threads simultaneously. The Intel Core i3-10100 is manufactured in the improved 14nm process (14nm++). Compared to the older i3-9100 (Comet Lake-S), the 10100 offers a 100 MHz higher turbo clock, multithreading and support for faster DDR4-2666 memory.

Performance

The performance should be only slightly above the Core i3-9100 in the entry level for desktop CPUs. Thus the performance is sufficient for office and undemanding gaming.

Graphics Card

The Intel Core i3-10100 is a processor with a rather slow entry level integrated graphics unit (Intel UHD Graphics 630). 

Power consumption

Intel puts the Thermal Design Power (TDP) at 65 watts. This means there is no need for large cooling systems, which also allows installation in very compact housings.

Intel Core i7-10700K

► remove from comparison

The Intel Core i7-10700K is a high-end desktop CPU based on the Comet Lake architecture. The CPU offers 8 cores and 16 threads clocked at 3.8 - 5.1 GHz. The TDP is rated at 125 Watt (PL1) but the PL2 is set to 229 Watt for short term boosts (up to 56 seconds).
