A new chip leak discovered by Twitter user TUM_APISAK suggests that Intel's Core i3 processors will receive Hyper-Threading support. This feature was previously reserved for higher-end chips but it appears that the chip giant is now also rolling out two threads per core to its lower-end parts.
A SiSoftware benchmark submission, spotted by chip detective @TUM_APISAK, reveals a new 10th-Gen Comet Lake Core i3-10100 processor sporting four cores and eight threads. That's a nice improvement over today's Core i3-9100 equivalent, which features four cores and four threads.
The "Comet Lake" Core i3 processors are expected to hit the market in early 2020.
