With the Intel Core i7-10700K, Intel offers an 8-core based on the Comet Lake S architecture in addition to the top models with 10 cores.
This also offers hyperthreading and clearly beats its predecessor in multi-threaded applications. This CPU is, in any case, perfectly suited for gaming.
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).
In a direct comparison with the Intel core i7 9700K, the newer Core i7-10700K can only clearly stand out in the multi-threaded benchmarks.
The single core performance is on the same level and the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X is not faster here either.
However, due to its 12 cores, it can place itself in front of our sample in the multi-core tests here. The Core i9 10900K can improve on this and places itself almost 10 percent ahead of this CPU.
