It is no secret that in the foreseeable future, Intel will launch the mass platform LGA1200 along with 14-nm processors of the 10th generation Core (Comet Lake-S family). The release of new CPUs is just around the corner, which is confirmed by recent entries in the online 3DMark test suite database. They are dedicated to the 6-core Core i5-10600 chip, which worked in tandem with the MSI motherboard based on Intel Z490 logic.
According to 3DMark, the Intel Core i5-10600 processor operates with six cores with support for Hyper-Threading. The nominal frequency of this “stone” was 3.3 GHz, and in Turbo Boost mode it accelerated up to 4.7 GHz.
Roughly speaking, the new product is a Core i7-8700 chip (6 cores / 12 threads, 3.2 / 4.6 GHz) with an increased operating frequency by 100 MHz. Given that we have a Core i5 series processor, its recommended price should be about $ 250.
As regards the results of the Core i5-10600 in the 3DMark 11 Extreme test, they are quite expected to correspond to the Core i7-8700 processor: 12.7 thousand “Parrots” Physics Score versus ~ 13 thousand points. We remind you that the release of Intel’s mass platform LGA1200 and 10th generation Core processors is planned for the first half of 2020.
