Processor

Intel Core i7-10700K, clock frequency @ 5.1GHz, socket 1200, code name Comet Lake-S, cores 8, threads 16, base clock 3.80GHz, turbo clock 5.10GHz, memory controller Dual Channel PC4-23466U (DDR4-2933), CPU features Optane Memory Support, Turbo Boost Max 3.0 (5.10GHz), Turbo Boost 2.0, vPro, SMT (Hyper-Threading), VT-x, VT-d, VT-x EPT, Intel 64, SSE4.1, SSE4.2, AVX , AVX2, Idle States, EIST, Thermal Monitoring, IPT, SIPP, AES-NI, Secure Key, SGX, OS Guard, TXT, XD Bit, Boot Guard, TDP-down (95W), TDP-down frequency (3.50GHz) , Multiplier freely selectable, L2 cache 2MB (8x 256kB), L3 cache 16MB, chipset interface DMI 3.0, 8GT / s (PCIe 3.0 x4), PCIe lanes 16x (PCIe 3.0), memory max. 128GB, memory bandwidth 45.8GB / s.

With the new Comet Lake generation, Intel is entering the tenth round of Core i processors. The most important changes to the new processors include new options for Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 (TBMT), i.e. the automatic overclocking of the CPUs. With the new Thermal Velocity Boost (TVB), Intel determines the two best cores of a CPU and gives them an extra boost to the maximum boost clock. In other words, Intel simply tickles more performance from the CPUs through improved boost rates and higher clock rates.

The Core i7-10700K has eight cores and 16 threads and now offers Hyper-Threading again compared to the Core i7-9700K of the previous generation. In principle, the Core i7-10700K is now what the Core i9-9900K was before.

Once again, Intel means more evolution than revolution. Intel has made a few improvements here and there that also lead to more performance, but these do not relate to the architecture of the CPU, but to all other aspects that affect performance. In particular, the increase in the TDP to 125 watts and the improvement in the cooling of the CPUs are worth mentioning. In the end, these two points enable more boost, thus more clock and therefore more performance.

Metal backplate with heat pipes

Heat pipes under the sturdy brushed metal backplate provide additional cooling for the memory modules on the back of the board
Core line

Precision-made heat pipes ensure maximum contact with the GPU and distribute the heat over the entire length of the heat sink.
Thermal design with three fans

The all-new KFA2 Serious Gaming Edition has equipped with 1-Clip Booster, which can be installed at the back plate and it is the precision and quality that win. When the fan is at the back the PCB is in fact much shorter than the cooler and the key is to allow air to flow as easy as they could, therefore KFA2 built larger holes that allows air to flow through to fulfill the first requirement.

Apart from that, the advantage of adding a fan on the back plate, the 1-Clip booster fan design sucks the air out instead of blowing the air in, creating a technically-correct push-pull cooling effects. When this additional fan is used, it can achieve better performance as if a GPU running with a normal back plate.

Software

Microsoft Windows 10 Professional 64Bit, Full Version!

Windows 10 is the Goldilocks version of Microsoft's venerable PC operating system -- a "just right" compromise between the familiar dependability of Windows 7, and the forward-looking touchscreen vision of Windows 8.

This new Windows, available as a free upgrade for existing Windows 7 and Windows 8 noncorporate users, is built from the ground up to pursue Microsoft's vision of a unified OS that spans all devices without alienating any one platform. It's an attempt to safeguard Microsoft's crumbling software hegemony, assailed on all sides by Google and Apple. And it's a vision of the future as Microsoft sees it, where a single user experience spans every piece of technology we touch. Welcome to Windows as a service.

Yes, this new OS is chock-full of fresh features. To name just a few: a lean, fast Internet Explorer replacement called Edge; Microsoft's Siri-like voice-controlled virtual assistant, Cortana; and the ability to stream real-time games to your desktop from an Xbox One in another room. (And in case you're wondering: there is no "Windows 9" -- Microsoft skipped it, going straight from 8 to 10.)

But Windows 10 is also the end of a long, awkward road that began with the release of Windows 8 in 2012, when Microsoft tried to convince a world of keyboard and mouse wielders that touchscreens were the way to go -- or else. Ironically, in 2015, the PC hardware for that touchscreen future is now here -- everything from 2-in-1s such as the Lenovo Yoga line to convertible tablets with detachable keyboards, like Microsoft's own Surface. And Windows 10 smoothly lets users transition from "tablet" to "PC" mode on such devices like never before.

For the rest of the PC universe -- including those who still prefer good old-fashioned keyboard and mouse navigation -- Windows 10 is a welcome return to form. The Start menu, inexplicably yanked from 8, is back and working the way you expect it to. Those live tiles from the Windows 8 home screen still exist, but they've been attached to the Start menu, where they make a lot more sense. And the fiendishly hidden Charms bar has been morphed into the more straightforward (and easier to find) Action Center.

As always, there are some quibbles and gripes with the end product, but all-in-all -- after living with Windows 10 for months -- I can say it's a winner. It's flexible, adaptable and customizable. And it's been battle-tested by an army of beta testers for the better part of a year, making it one of the most robust operating system rollouts in recent memory.

A fresh Start

The Start menu is back; it's almost funny how relieving that is. That humble Start button has been a fixture on the lower left corner of the Windows desktop since the halcyon days of Windows 95, offering speedy access to apps and settings. Press it on Windows 10, and you'll see the latest step in a long conversation about the state of the PC industry.

The past sits on the left: a neat column with shortcuts to your most used apps. Press the "All Apps" button and you'll get an alphabetical list of all of the apps installed on your PC. There are folders in there too -- press them, and extra options will fly out, just like they always have.

The future -- or at least, the future as Microsoft envisions it -- sits on the right side of the Start menu. These are the colorful, animated live tiles that debuted in Windows 8, pulling double duty as app shortcuts and informative widgets. You can resize these live tiles, drag them about to arrange them into groups and pin as many apps as you'd like -- the entire Start menu can be shrunk or expanded to suit your liking. It's essentially a miniaturized version of the fullscreen Start menu we saw in Windows 8. Hate live tiles? Then unpin them to excise them from your computer, leaving you with the narrow column of frequently used apps we've known for so long.
