Intel wanted i5-10400 to compete against reigning mainstream champion Ryzen 5 3600 from AMD camp

In the AMD range, the Ryzen 5 3600 is by far the most popular, inexpensive, efficient, it is an update more than credible for all those who want to get rid of their old Intel quadcore or their AMD Bulldo. With the same observation, Intel has therefore developed a CPU that would have the same specifications, and above all that would approach it financially. The Core i5-10400F occupies this position, he who inherited 6 hearts and 12 threads, Hyper-Threading, correct frequencies worthy of the 9400F before him (2.9 / 4.3 GHz), 3MB of L3 cache compared to Core of 9th generation, and a lower official price, $ 157 against $ 199, even if this 3600 is lower in general. It will be recalled that ASUS and ASRock can push it automatically via their technologies related to the base frequency of the baseclock.

So is that all it takes to make it a competitive CPU? 

TPU has taken the test. In application, it is not enough even if it is close, especially overclocked via baseclock, in gaming however it is enough whatever the definition, but like the application, the gap remains less than 5 points, a straw absolutely invisible when you're on the move. The rest belongs to everyone, their analyzes, LGA1200 and AM4 being intended to still welcome a new generation of CPU, Zen 3 with Vermeer on the red side, Rocket Lake archi ice Lake in 14nm on the blue side.
