Intel 8th gen vs 10th gen in combination with ADT-Link R43S

Hi everyone,

I want to build a custom Low Power PC with the ability to turn on the egpu (when needed) in order to play some games like Battlefield V, GTA V, FIFA 20, but otherwise have a low energy 5W Powerconsumption PC running 24/7.

The system should be completely fanless and I do not worry about its size.

As eGPU I will use a Palit GeForce GTX 1650 KalmX 4GB GDDR5 passiv.

Now my question is would you recommend going with: i7 10510U (370€) or would the i5 8265U (238€) be sufficient in your opinion? I found some nice ones passsily cooled on Ali Express here. They do not have TB3 but as I am going to use the ADT-Link R43SG  (here) I will use M.2.

I am not convinced that the +60% in price for i7 are worth it?

Furthermore I am happy for any further feedback. 

Dan

They are both 14nm chips and if run strictly within a 15W envelope, will see similar 4C-core performance after an initial turbo spike.

You might consider getting the middle option, a i7 8550U, to get an i7 with unlockable multipliers and higher turbo frequency at a reasonable premium over the i5.

 

1.10th Gen 14nm CPU Intel Core i7 10510U 4 cores 8 threads 1.8GHz up to 4.9GHz 8MB cache TDP 15W Intel UHD Graphics. (probably send i7 10710U by random)

2. 8th Gen 14nm CPU Intel Core i7 8565U 4 cores 8 threads 1.8GHz up to 4.6GHz 8MB cache TDP 15W Intel UHD Graphics 620. (probably send i7 8550U 8559U 8650U by random)
 
3. 8th Gen 14nm CPU Intel Core i5 8265U 4 cores 8 threads 1.6GHz up to 3.9GHz 6MB cache TDP 15W Intel UHD Graphics 620. (Probably send i5 8250U 8259U 8350U by random)
 
4. 7th Gen 14nm CPU Intel Core i5 7260U 2 cores 4 threads 2.2GHz up to 3.4GHz 4MB cache TDP 15W Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640. (Probably send i5 7267U by random)

 

eGPU Setup 1.35    •    eGPU Port Bandwidth Reference Table

 
2015 15" Dell Precision 7510 (Q M1000M) [6th,4C,H] + GTX 1080 Ti @32Gbps-M2 (ADT-Link R43SG) + Win10 1803 [build link]

I see, now I am considering an i7 8550 which comes at 300€ (here).

i7 8550U 4 cores 8 threads 1.8GHz up to 4.0GHz 8MB cache TDP 15W Intel UHD Graphics 620, DDR4 2400, Wifi AC

 

One more question I have in mind:

I can get a BXNUC10i5FNK2 - Intel i5-10210U for about 330€, plugging it into an Akasa Turing FX passive case for additional 120€. 

i5 10210U 4 cores 8 threads 1.6GHz up to 4.2GHz 6MB cache TDP 15W Intel UHD Graphics 620, DDR4 2666, WIfi AX, TB3

 

Besides having more modern WIFI and a Thundebolt port, would there be any valid reason to prefer a NUC vs the china model above?

 

Many thanks, appreciate your help!
