Intel Core i3-10100F Comet Lake Processor
The Intel Core i3 10100F Comet Lake Processor is one of the best entry-level processors currently. The Intel Core i3-10100F is part of Intel’s 10th Generation Comet Lake lineup. Thus, it comes with all the upgrades of the new generation. Better IPC, better performance, and overall a better processor. In terms of processors, Intel is one of the top brands. The Intel Core i3-10100F is a perfect choice for gamers. This is due to the high IPC, and single-threaded performance of Intel processors. Talking of specifications, the Intel Core i3-10100F Comet Lake Processor comes with 4 cores, 8 threads. As for core frequencies, the base frequency is 2.9 GHz, and the Intel Turbo 2.0 boost clock is 4.3 GHz.
However, what makes the Intel Core i3-10100F Comet Lake Processor even better is the efficiency. The TDP of the Intel Core i3 10100F is a mere 65W. This makes it extremely efficient, despite being decently powerful. However, if you are after a new entry-level Intel PC build, then the Intel Core i3 10100F Comet Lake Processor is a perfect choice. However, one thing to note is that it does not come with an iGPU, so a dedicated GPU is compulsory.
