Is Intel’s Core I3-10100 Really New?

The competition between AMD and Intel is getting lots of attention and yes its deserves it. But is there any real competition?

In the past 2year, AMD has done lots of good things on CPU making. They built powerful CPUs with lots of cores and threads. The literary boosts the clock speed and they have done that all in the budget so everyone can afford it. 

In this case, Intel was holding is us in a solid barrier and I believe only fewer peoples could buy their end chips like I7 or I9. I3 was common with 2cores. Yes, you heard it right only 2cores. 

AMD changed the market but launching super affordable powerful chips that have higher counts of cores and threads and also with higher clock speed.

So recently we have seen that AMD launched Ryzen 3 zen core 2 for giving a tough competition to the Intel’s 10th gen Core i3-10100 you can read more about here

But hold on a second, I see this I3-10100 CPU before. 

Ok, let’s rewind to 2017 and take a look at the newly launched I7-7700. it was a flagship CPU when it launched in 2017 it has 4cores 8threads, 3.6 to 4.2Ghz clock speed, hyperthreading, no overclocking, etc 

And then on 2020, the I3-10100 also has the same 4cores 8threads, 3.6 to 4.2Ghz clock speed, hyperthreading, no overclocking, etc 


Thanks to CPU-Monkey to compare this side by side. And here you can see it is the same CPU Intel is selling. Yes the LGA is now 1200 so you will need a new motherboard, same UDH graphics, and also cache, TDP same. Yes, you can add more RAMs on the I3-10100 (but who will need to add 128gigs RAM on an I3 CPU) and even its also built on the same 14nm technology. 

Meanwhile, the price is for I3-10100 is around $120 (depends on the country) and the Ryzen 3 3000 is also around that price but will be expensive than the I3-10100 but I still feel that the Ryzen 3-3000 is a better choice. 

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more updates on the AMD and Intel
