Intel Core i7-10700K Intel Hyper-Threading Technology
Intel Core i7-10700K 8 Cores Intel HT Technology uses processor resources more efficiently, enabling multiple threads to run on each core. It increases processor throughput to improve overall performance, meaning it can run demanding applications simultaneously while maintaining system responsiveness. Intel HT Technology is now available across the entire 10th Gen Intel Core processor family, allowing you to multitask with confidence, and do more simultaneously, no matter which Intel Core processor you choose.
Intel Core i7-10700K 8 Cores Conquer the Demands of Gaming and ProductivityFeaturing 8 Cores, 16 Threads and a base frequency of 3.8GHz, the Intel Core i7-10700K 8 Cores has the power to drive smooth, immersive gaming experiences. Under load, the Intel Core i7-10700K 8 Cores can push up to a 5.1 GHz clock speed with Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0, providing power when you need it the most.

You have to wonder if there’s anything left to report after Intel actually launches their Comet lake series desktop processors. Today you can add numbers for Intel Core i7-10700K 8 Cores and i5-10600K, which seem to be roughly at tan Ryzen 3600X and 3800X perf levels.
Thai PC aficionado TUM_APISAK is active on his twitter account again, this round he stumbled into some results on Geekbench, results from 10th gen Core processors named Intel Core i7-10700K 8 Cores (8-core/16-thread) and the Core i5-10600K (6-core/12-thread).
The eight-coreIntel Core i7-10700K 8 Cores scores 34133 points in the multi-core test, and 5989 in the single-core one, which is close to Ryzen 7 3800X. The processors are listed at 5.1 GHz for its maxed boost frequency.
The more affordable i5-10600K scores 28523 points in the multi-threaded test, and 6081 points in the single-core test, that’s 3600X territory and clocks ion at a max clock of 4.80 GHz.
Both procs could be slightly faster than Ryzen, however, it seems Intel is missing a bit of IPC, as they need rather higher frequencies. And that on its end means more voltage need, and thus the rumors of fairly high power consumption might be a real deal. I included some Ryzen 3600X and 3800X results below as well.
