Next-Gen Intel Core i3 til Sport Hyper Threading?



TUM_APISAK has done of his well-regarded snoopings again, and this one could have relevant information for the democratization of threads in next-gen Intel products. Intel has been slowly (as they can) increasing the amount of cores and threads in their respective product lines across i3, i5, and i7 CPUs after AMD's Ryzen onslaught. Luckily, from two core, four-thread Core i3 of a few years ago, we now seem to be entering a new era for entry-level computing, with a new SiSoftware benchmark seemingly showing an Intel next-gen 'Comet Lake' Core i3 CPU sporting 4 physical threads with Hyper Threading enabled (so, basically, the equivalent of Skylake Core i7's from just three years ago).

Benchmarkindgivelsen viser, hvad der ser ud til at være en fire-core, otte-tråd Core i3-10100. Det sport et 3,6 GHz basisur, som sandsynligvis ikke er endeligt, så tag denne frekvens med et saltkorn. Denne blanding i low-end betyder bestemt en fornemme størrelse i Intels mere magtfulde lineups, hvor HyperThreading sandsynligvis er aktiv for alle deres produktstack over Comet Lake - 4C, 8T Core i3; 6C, 12T Core i5; 8C, 16T Core i7; og en sandsynlig 10C, 20T Core i9 10900K, der går rundt mellem linjen mellem forbruger- og HEDT-platforme. Husk naturligvis, at disse stadig er bygget på 14 nm-processen, give eller tage et par '+' symboler, så forvent ikke for meget med hensyn til energieffektivitetsgevinster.
