The i5-10400F is a six-core hyperthreaded CPU from Intel’s latest Comet Lake series of desktop processors. This 65 W CPU has single core and all core boost frequencies of 4.3 GHz and 4.0 GHz, respectively. Whilst the 10400F will require a new LGA1200 motherboard, such as the Z490, Intel have guaranteed that the next generation of Rocket Lake CPUs will also be compatible with this chipset. The 10400F is aimed at mid-tier gaming PC builds, and as such, ships with a cooler but without integrated graphics. Despite being officially launched in Q2 of 2020, at the time of writing, the 10400F is still not widely available. Compared to the similarly priced Ryzen 5 3600, the 10400F’s lower memory latency gives it the lead in gaming and effective speed benchmarks. Since the Ryzen architecture creates a gaming bottleneck, it is necessary to upgrade to a higher tier, Intel CPU for better gaming performance. On the other hand comparing the i5-10400F and the i3-10100 shows that the 10100 offers comparable gaming performance for 22% less money whilst also including integrated graphics. [Jun '20 CPUPro]

Commonly found in such exotica as old Asus Chromebooks, these little quad-cores are far more capable than most people give them credit for. If your jam in life is running Ubuntu on said old Chromebook with minimum power usage (7.5W) and long battery life then this is a perfect little chip, and coupled with the integrated HD4000 graphics and typical 4GB DDR3 RAM you're actually looking at a nice little retro gamer. Titles such as the original Halo, Max Payne 1 & 2 and even the earlier Mafia titles are all easily playable. The main thing holding this little chip back are the 2.25GHz clock speed and a whole 2MB of L2 cache, meaning intensive tasks such as video editing will be horribly slow. Other than that though, for a nice simple daily driver or retro gamer these are perfect! [Apr '20 boingk]
