Intel Core i3-10110U is a power-efficient processor with a Comet Lake-U architecture launched in the third quarter of 2019. The processor is designed using Intel’s 14nm++ process node with two cores and 4 threads (because of hyper-threading support) along with 4 MB of Intel smart L3 cache. The cores run at a base frequency of 2.1 GHz which can turbo boost to a maximum clock speed of 4.1 GHz. The default TDP is set at 15W which can be configured up to 25W when all the cores are operating at a frequency of 2.6 GHz. This TDP can also be configured as low as 10W when the cores are operating at a clock frequency of 800 MHz.
This processor also supports an integrated UHD Graphics 620 with 23 execution units which is still similar to the integrated graphics card in the previous generations for CPUs. The graphics is clocked at a base frequency of 300 MHz which can turbo boost to up to 1.0 GHz. The processing graphics have access to a maximum of 32 GB of physical memory and can support a maximum 4K resolution of 4096 x 2304 at 60Hz display setting for DP and eDP — and 4096 x 2304 at 24Hz for HDMI. Therefore, your device can smoothly handle high-resolution displays with some noteworthy improvements in battery life through power optimization.
Other notable features of the Intel Core i3-10110U are its support for both the dual DDR4-2666 memory modules as well as LPDDR3-2133, LPDDR4-2933 memory modules along with features PCIe 3.0 with a maximum number of 16 lanes (which comes with different PCIe configurations/lanes). The maximum memory bandwidth for this CPU is 45.8 GB/s with a maximum memory capacity of 64GB. The overall performance of this processor makes it a good candidate for a wide range of computing activities such as gaming, streaming, rendering, and productivity tasks.
Although Core i3-10110U has a higher clock than Core i3-1005G1 (4.1 GHz vs. 3.4GHz), the general single-core and multi-core performance of this chip are way lower – the only reason being Core i3-1005G1 is based on 10nm process node. The processor performance is however slightly better than the Core i3-8130U and Core i3-8145U. It’s also worth noting that Core i3-10110U consumes 46% less energy than the Core i3 1115G4. But, the Core i3 1115G4 is faster than i3-10110U for various reasons. Apart from the new 10nm process node, it has a more powerful integrated Intel Iris Xe Graphics despite its lower clock speed.
