Intel Core i5-10310Y vs Intel Core i3-10110Y

Intel Core i5-10310Y

► remove

The Intel Core i5-10310Y is a extremely power efficient quad-core SoC for small laptops and tablets based on the Comet Lake (CML-Y) generation and was announced in August 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 1.1 and 4.1 GHz (all 4 cores 2.8 GHz max). Thanks to HyperThreading 8 threads can be used. Compared to the faster i7-10510Y, the level 3 cache is reduced to 6 MB and the clock rates are lower.

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 i5-10310Y 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 card however is still the same as in the previous generations. It should be still called Intel UHD Graphics 615 and clock from 300 - 1050 MHz in the i5. Furthermore, the SoC integrates a VP9 and H.265 de- and encoder.

The chip is now produced in the 14nm++ process (Amber Lake Y was 14nm+) but not 10nm like Ice Lake Y. The TDP is specified at 7 Watts but can be varied from 5.5 to 9 Watt from the manufacturer (cTDP up/down) resulting in different performance (especially Turbo durations).

The Intel Core i3-10110Y is a extremely power efficient dual-core SoC for small laptops and tablets based on the Comet Lake (CML-Y) generation and was announced in August 2019. Compared to the similar Amber Lake processors (e.g. Core m3-8100Y), the only difference is the improved 14nm++ process and the higher clock speeds. The faster models, like the Core i5-10310Y offer two additional cores however.

More information on Comet Lake and all the models and articles on it can be found here.

Thanks to the high clock speeds, the processor performance should be a lot better than the old m3-8100Y (with sufficient cooling and TDP settings).

The integrated graphics card however is still the same as in the previous generations. It should be still called Intel UHD Graphics 615 and clock from 300 - 1000 MHz in the i3. Furthermore, the SoC integrates a VP9 and H.265 de- and encoder.

The chip is now produced in the 14nm++ process (Amber Lake Y was 14nm+) but not 10nm like Ice Lake Y. The TDP is specified at 7 Watts but can be varied from 5.5 to 9 Watt from the manufacturer (cTDP up/down) resulting in different performance (especially Turbo durations). Interestingly, the faster Core i5-10210Y with two more cores can be configured to lower 4.5 Watt.
