Intel’s 10th Gen Comet Lake CPUs are here in Pakistan. From the looks of it, it appears that they are quite popular among gamers. There is a growing market of people who classify themselves as enthusiasts. These are the people who are always looking for some extra performance. Normally, they are okay with dealing with overclocking as well. However, not everyone has that mindset. While the Core i7 10700K has great overclocking capabilities, the Core i7 10700 “non-K” is an interesting one. It’s similar to the 10700K in every way, yet it gets rid of the overclocking support. Overall, it’s still a great gaming processor, but one that comes at a slightly lower price.
The Lowest price of Intel Core i7 10700 in Pakistan is Rs. 60,000, and estimated average price is Rs. 61,333.
The prices are collected from the best online stores in Pakistan like Galaxy.pk, Easetec.com.pk, Zahcomputers.pk, Czone.com.pk - updated Jan 2021.
If you have educated yourself on the 10700K, then there’s not much you are missing here. In terms of specs, both of these are identical for the most part. The 10700 has eight cores and sixteen threads. The TDP is a bit lower as it is rated at 65W. In terms of frequencies, the base clock is 2.9GHz and the boost clock is rated at 4.8GHz. This is one of the few bigger differences between the two.
Other than that, it is the same processor we know and love for gaming and production. Since it has a lower power draw, it’s slightly easier to cool. And since you’re not overclocking, you can easily get away with a cheaper motherboard. You don’t necessarily need a Z490 motherboard for this one, though it will allow you to use faster memory.
Apart from that, nothing much has changed here. Gaming performance is near identical, but production workloads are a different story. Because of the lower power limit, the 10700K can hit higher frequencies for a longer period. This does shave off some rendering time, but the difference might not be enough for most people.
So, if you’re the type of person who doesn’t need overclocking, this could be a great choice. Considering the Intel Core i7 10700 prices in Pakistan, we expect this to be the more popular of the two choices.
