Product Overview

Intel Core i5-10600 is a mainstream option in Intel's 10th-gen Core, Comet Lake desktop PC microprocessor family. There is also a lower-powered variant, i5-10600T, that trades some performance for efficiency.
Like other i5 processors in the Comet Lake lineup, the Core i5-10600 comes with 6 cores and 12 threads. It has a single-core maximum frequency of 4.8GHz and sports the same Intel UHD Graphics 630 integrated GPU found in higher-powered Comet Lake processors.
The low-power Core i5-10600T shares with the base chip the same technical features. It is clocked, however, roughly 20% lower. As a tradeoff, it has a TDP of 35W, as do other Comet Lake T-series processors. It can also run at a 25W, TDP-down mode, though the clock speed is further capped.
Compared to similarly spec'd i5-10500 and i5-10500T, the i5-10600 and i5-10600T differ only in clock speed, which is about 5-8% higher.
As a third refinement based on the 14nm Skylake process, the Comet Lake desktop processors offer an increase in core count, clock speed, and cache capacity over its predecessor. All Comet Lake Core processors feature hyperthreading, allowing two threads to run on every core.
