Intel Core i3-10100 vs Intel Core i9-10910

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 i9-10910

► remove from comparison Intel i9-10910

The Intel Core i9-10910 is a high-end processor for desktops with ten cores based on the Comet Lake architecture (CML-S, 4th generation of Skylake). The processor clocks at between 3.6 and 5.0 GHz (all 10 cores up to 4.6 GHz) and can execute up to twenty threads simultaneously thanks to Hyper-Threading. The 5.0 GHz can be only achieved below 70°C core temperature (Thermal Velocity Boost of 100 MHz).

The processor is still manufactured in the old 14nm (14nm++) process. Compared to the predecessor, the Core i9-9900K, the 10900K offers increased clock speeds and two more cores.

The Comet Lake architecture is similar to Coffee Lake and offers the same features and is produced in the same 14nm process. Other than the improved clock rates, the memory controller now also supports faster DDR4-2933 RAM. More information on Comet Lake and all the models and articles on it can be found here.

Performance

Thanks to the high Turbo Boost, the CPU is the fastest gaming CPU available at the time of announcement. Using all cores, the i9 however is slower than the top Ryzen CPUs (like the Ryzen 9 3950X) which offer more cores.

Graphics

The integrated Intel UHD Graphics 630 iGPU is supposed to offer a similar performance as the UHD630 in the Core i7-9900K. As a  low-end solution it will only run current games smoothly at reduced details - if at all.

Power Consumption

Intel specifies the TDP with 125 Watts (PL1) but under full load up to 250 Watt are consumed (PL2). In default mode these 250 Watt and therefore high clock speeds can be maintained for up to 56 seconds, however, all boards offer the option to alter these settings.
