Product information - Core i7-10700 2.90 GHz (Comet Lake) Socket 1200 - boxed
"Comet Lake-S" - This is the name of the 10th generation of Intel Core processors. In addition to increased clock rates compared to the 9th generation "Coffee Lake-S Refresh", "Comet Lake-S" supports higher memory clock rates and offers support for Intel WiFi 6 (Gig +). The biggest change, however, is the change to the new LGA 1200 socket. This is as large as its predecessor in terms of dimensions, but has additional pins so that "Come Lake-S" processors are not compatible with mainboards with a different socket are!

The Intel Core i7-10700 8-core processor with SMT
Thanks to the once again optimized 14 nm manufacturing process, the Core i7-10700 offers a base clock of 2.9 GHz . Thanks to Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0, the processor achieves a single-core max boost of 4.8 GHz , while all 8 cores (and 16 threads) are automatically overclocked to a boost clock of up to 4.6 GHz . Depending on the type of application, the Core i7-10700 always achieves optimal performance thanks to the automatic boost clock.
With the Intel Socket LGA 1200 , the 10th generation of Intel Core processors has a socket for mounting on the mainboard. This means that the processor is only compatible with Intel mainboards with the LGA 1200 socket. Even if the number of pins increases to 1200, the dimensions of the socket and the ILM (Independent Loading Mechanism) remain identical to the socket 1151/1155. This means that the corresponding CPU cooler can still be used without the need for a conversion kit.
The Intel HD Graphics UHD 630 is used as the integrated graphics unit. With its 24 execution units, it offers more than enough graphics power for Intel Quick Sync, GPU computing and, of course, a game or two in between. Furthermore, the graphics unit DirectX 12 with feature level 12_1, OpenGL 4.5 and OpenCL 2.0 also supports the playback of 4K, UHD resolutions at 60 Hz via DisplayPort - provided a corresponding mainboard is available.
Note: This is a boxed version of the processor with a CPU cooler!
