Intel just revealed a surprise new processor to beat AMD Ryzen in budget gaming PCs

Intel’s Core i3-10100F is a new spin on a Comet Lake processor which has just been spotted online, and should soon be on its way to make a tempting option for a budget gaming PC.

The CPU has just been listed on Intel’s Ark product database with a launch date of Q4, but the chip giant hasn’t announced anything official about the processor or when it might hit shelves yet.

As spotted by Tom’s Hardware, it’s a quad-core (eight-thread) processor with a base clock of 3.6GHz and boost to 4.3GHz, and will retail between $79 and $97, offering a seriously good value proposition in terms of price/performance for an affordable gaming PC.

These New Auto Safety Features Will Surprise You

Your car knows more than you think. Like when you’re about to rear-end the vehicle in front of you. Or when you’re close to colliding with another car in the parking lot. Or when you’re too tired to drive.

On a recent road trip, my Volvo XC-90 calmly informed me I was too fatigued to continue driving. It even suggested a hotel where I could stop for the night. How thoughtful.

The Volvo features are part of a suite of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) — and they have legions of fans. Zach Shefska, also an XC-90 driver, is among them. ADAS has saved his hide a time or two.
