Let’s get technical with the i5 10400f.

The processor’s job is to deliver you the equalized worth of your money and harmonize with the rest of the PC parts for the final & most important destination, which is your experience, Getting this job done with the 10400f is a smart choice of yours and let me explain why,

6 cores & 12 threads with hyperthreading technology finally from intel built on 14 nm architecture with LGA 1200 socket, 4.30 GHZ boost for a single core is “critical” especially for you as an esports gamer as games love the single core’s speed, 12MB smart cache all at TDP only 65W and Up to 153W max on high CPU utilization, With the ability to put the very budget 2666mhz ram and take the full experience is exactly why this must be your choice if you are on a budget but want something worthy.


But is it still performing in 2023?

The answer is a solid yes, but don’t take that as a word, Let’s back it up with numbers and performance analysis,

(Test bench containing RTX 3060, 16 GB 2666MHZ of RAM)

1- Apex Legends high settings = 135 fps average

2- Warzone 2.0 extreme settings = 85 fps average

3- Valorant lowest settings = 220 fps average

4- RDR2 ultra settings = 60 fps average

Again yes, the 10400f is still a decent beast within its budget in 2023.


How far can it go without bottleneck?

Our recommended GPU for the 10400f is RTX 3060 as it gives you the most compelling performance you could ever desire, But the 10400f can push the limits beyond the 3060 till the RTX 4070, especially the twin edge version because you probably have h series motherboards so we don’t need the card to be heavy as it can damage the PCI-e, But if you have b460 or higher you can go for the trinity version for even better temperatures and looks.


Hankerz recommended users of the 10400f.

We recommend this processor for gamers as the main targeted users of this processor as it comes with all the requirements of being a pretty decent choice for an esports gamer looking for the highest refresh rate gaming experience within a budget of less than 30k.
