10th Gen Intel Core i5-10500T CPU 2.3GHz (Turbo 3.8GHz) 6-Core 12M LGA1200 SRH3B


Introduced in the second half of 2019, the 10th generation Intel Core processors, codenamed “Comet Lake” for the mainstream desktop lineup and “Ice Lake” for mobile and ultra-portable devices, marked a pivotal evolution in Intel’s processor offerings. While both architectures were dubbed the 10th generation, they were distinct in their technological underpinnings and targeted applications. Comet Lake processors were manufactured using a refined 14nm++ process technology and offered up to 10 cores and 20 threads in the flagship desktop model, providing robust performance for various computing needs, such as gaming, content creation, and professional workflows. Ice Lake, on the other hand, was built on Intel’s 10nm process technology and integrated next-generation technologies like Thunderbolt 3 and Wi-Fi 6, alongside featuring Intel’s Iris Plus Graphics, which significantly improved integrated graphics performance.

In terms of sockets and compatibility, Comet Lake introduced the new LGA 1200 socket, necessitating new motherboards despite maintaining the physical similarities with the previous LGA 1151 socket. The 10th generation processors supported DDR4 memory, and specific SKUs enabled higher memory speeds and provided overclocking capabilities. Enhanced core and thread counts, improved thermal design, and the inclusion of Hyper-Threading across a broader range of SKUs were hallmarks of the 10th generation, offering consumers a wide array of options tailored to varied computing requirements and budgetary considerations. This generation adeptly catered to a spectrum of users, from enthusiasts seeking top-tier performance to everyday users desiring smooth, responsive computing experiences.
