The most affordable processor for the gamer
Get to know in depth one of the most popular and competitive of Intel In the current desktop generation - both for general home uses and for game lovers who prefer to direct their most resources to other parts of the specification
At the end of 2020, we are in the midst of a battle for the technological user on the part of the hardware manufacturers when each one wants its components to be found in the user computers. Earlier this year launched Intel Series Processors New to the desktop market, is a series Core In the tenth generation.
This series opened with very powerful options such as the 9-core Core i10900 10K and the 7-core Core i10700 8K. Along with the Core i5 10600K, Processors These are known to be extremely fast in the gaming field especially for PC users.
Along with those luxury K processors, were also launched Processors More accessible for those who are looking for serious performance, but are not willing to invest hundreds of shekels in performance improvements that will not necessarily be reflected on a daily basis for them.
Here, comes the processor that we represent in this review - theCore i5 10400F.
The Core i5 10400F is a successor to the Core i5 9400F we knew from the chassis Intel Previous, LGA1151 v2. This processor has 6 cores, and unlike the previous generation, this time contains the HyperThreading technology that allows two threads per processing core - meaning it has 12 threads for processing purposes. This processor has 12MB of זיכרון Third level cache. The extension F indicates that the graphics core is inactive, so it is not suitable for those looking for a multi-purpose processor with Core Graphically structured.
The operating frequency of theCore The i5 10400F ranges from 2.9GHz to 4.3GHz, depending on the type of effort. When all CPU cores are at full power, they will operate at a frequency of 4GHz for as long as the operating temperature allows.
In terms of hardware, the Core i5 10400F is very similar in practice to the Core i7 8700, another 6-core and 12-thread processor that operates at a slightly higher frequency. As a result of the change she made Intel In passing between generations, users actually get processing power that was previously available at a higher price tag. Today you can find in Israel theCore i5 10400F for about NIS 700 without body Cooling Included, making it budget-friendly for many gaming and general-purpose gaming computers. We always recommend the placement of a body Cooling Third party when possible, even simple ones for a few tens of shekels, since they usually perform better than those that come in a box.
The competitor of the Core i5 10400F is the Ryzen 5 3600 of AMD, But this processor will cost about NIS 100 more locally. On the next page we will see how this processor works in the various games.
