New Intel Core Processor scores leaked on CineBench

Written by Chad Norton on Sat, Feb 22, 2020 2:30 PM

Some single and multi-threaded Cinebench R20 scores for a brand new Intel Core Processor seems to have been shared on a South Korean tech forum. The processor in question here is the Intel Core i7-10700F, and is allegedly coming to the desktop PC market sometime around March. It’s a new processor for Intel’s Comet Lake series and most likely will be for the new LGA1200 motherboard sockets.

It looks as if the i7-10700F is an 8 core/16 thread processor with a 2.9GHz base clock and a turbo clock of around 4.8GHz. If all this is true, then this new CPU isn’t very far off from the last-gen Intel Core i9-9900K.

(please forgive the low image quality, we were not the original posters of it)

The processor supposedly was tested by a user on a Korean website, Quasar Zone, using Cinebench’s CPU benchmarking tools and uploaded the results to the website. The scores they got were:

- 4781 for the multi-core test

- 492 on the single core test

With those results the Intel Core i7-10700F is somewhere between the performance of a AMD Ryzen 7 2700X and a AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, for both the single and multi-core scores.

Okay so we could keep going down the rabbit hole of numbers and whatnot but that’s not why you’re here. It seems that the i7-10700F is essentially just the Intel Core i9-9900K specs but brought down to an i7, therefore bringing the price down, and is pretty much the next best thing from the Intel Core i7-9700K. So looking at that, we can guess the price will be somewhere in the $330-$380 range, a significant reduction in price (around $100-$200 less, depending on where you look) compared to the i9 processor of the same performance.

Typically, CPUs are far more powerful than we need to run games. The i7-9700K already has a rating of 10 from us and can play 1000 out of the 1000 most demanding games at the moment, so if these results are believed to be correct then we can expect the new i7-10700F to be no different.

Whilst it is great to see Intel upping their core counts and value across the board - thanks to pressure from AMD - it is difficult to appreciate the upgrade when other, new motherboards are required to use them. So the Comet Lake-S series isn’t heading off to a great start. Then again, this could all be a load of rubbish, as is the nature of leaks. But after AMD has been clearly stepping up their game, and Intel feeling the pressure, it’s hard to see these results as fake.

I guess the F version means no integrated graphics?

Or they're just disabled. Will have to read up on that one.

For a second I thought you were calling the people at Intel disabled.

The brain tends to jump to shortcuts.
Don't fret over it.

Yes, either way you will not be able to use the IGPU on F series SKU's.

The F series has it's iGPU section disabled (cause of manufacturing defects, tho there could be some that are binned as well).
Read the link below if you want to know more about it.

I think they need to come up with something new. It's like the only push the mhz on the same cpu. i believe this architecture reached it's limit

New intel cpu success will really depend on its price range. Obviously current gen 14nm for intel is a dead end. I bet their new 10c/20t i9 will be nuclear reactor. This engineering sample seems like on par with my 3700x, r20 i get multi core - 3700, single - 490.

Both ST and MT scores aren't far off from my 3700X. I expected more tbh.

It's going to take a while for Intel to catch up to AMD this time.

Low performance, nothing new, pointless processor

And needs just one expensive new motherboard to run!

I only know what the Cinebench R15 numbers mean. In Cinebench R20 i have not idea.

Until Intel finally learns not be a duffs (requiring a new mobo for almost every new CPU), a long term investment they are not.

Developed and manufactured in Israel. Umm... no thanks.

He didn't say anything about jews, he mentioned Israel and that is a whole different affair.

Intel should've focused on developing a 7nm processor than showing a lot of brand new processors that anyone would avoid buying. Especially if AMD is offering Ryzen 3700x or 3800x which performs better and bang for the buck.
