Critical Core i9 10900K Processor: another 14 nm record

Rise to 10 by 10

Intel is officially launching the series of processors In the tenth generation of desktops - this review we check out The powerful i9 10900K, with ten processing cores

Today launches Officially the XNUMXth series of processors Its for the desktop market. Processors The tenth generation also represents the beginning of a new platform generation with a brand new resident named .

We are reaching this launch and this new generation of processors after many years of it Continues to use the same foundation of the manufacturing process we know from Skylake's sixth generation Starring i7 6700K.

God-Core i7 6700K, Which is based on a 14 nm relatively fresh domestic process Launched in August of 2015, the gaming capabilities that are available with a four-core desktop processor are considered to be rising. For many, the Core i7 6700K symbolizes one of the most notable processors of the last decade for users, with great overclocking capabilities and first-class memory support That accompanies us to this day.

In January of 2017, Intel launched the same resident (LGA1151) another processor series called the Kaby-Lake code. God-Core i7 7700K It is the fastest processor for the bracket. At that time, and without significant competition on the part , The XNUMXth generation Core series has been minimal improvement in every possible area for a similar price. All price ranges were launched Which reached a slightly higher frequency, but not much beyond.

Thanks to the first serious competition from the competitor's house, and the desire to move fast beyond the four-core glass ceiling to the mainstream resident, we saw something we don't normally see from Intel, and that same October, it launches the eighth-generation starCore i7 8700K.

This time there is a transverse change in processing capabilities as processors The i7 in the eighth series came with six processing cores, a 50% increase over the previous series. Action frequencies have also begun to rise and Intel is pushing to continue to be relevant for many who are considering purchasing a new computer.

Passing one year, the competition introduces another new series of its own (Ryzen 2000), and Intel continues to respond to inflate its processors with more cores With the launch of the Core i9 9900K Has 8 cores. Keep in mind, all this time we're still left with the same 14 nm manufacturing process we know more from i7 6700K. It is true to say that thanks to the seniority and the research addition, there have been relative improvements in electrical efficiency over the years, but the architecture and manufacturing process in general remains very similar. Even the built-in graphical core of these processors remained the same as we knew in the sixth generation.

It's no secret that right now Intel is having trouble delivering advanced production processors for desktop users, it's something We knew that much more would happen in advance. Still, with the tools she has and the desire to continue to be competitive, she decides Pull the trigger and release a new platform today with a variety of improvements to attract many users to choose it over the competitor in the coming months.

Right now, the most important thing for Intel to emphasize is that working frequency is the most important thing… so it added two more cores to its flagship processor, the Core i9 10900K… because even Know it's hard to stay complacent when the competition offers Owns 12 and 16 cores for mainstream residency. Still, the The i9 10900K offers the highest operating frequencies we've ever seen for a desktop processor with a maximum turbo frequency of up to 5.3Ghz.

Remember, this is what the new line of CPUs looks like Core Series. There are several other models to be launched in the coming months, but that is most of the same product line. Core i9 processors are exclusively 10-core processors, while Core i7 maintains an 8-core, Core i5 are 6-core processors and Core i3 contains 4 cores. כל Processors In the tenth generation of Supports HyperThreading technology and therefore their actual number of capillaries is double.

Official Review Kit Includes CPU i9 10900K alongside i5 10600K. For the first time, official review kits also contain the processor names on the processor itself, instead of "Intel confidential," cheers.

This review focuses specifically on the flagship Core i9 10900K, while a second review focuses on the Core i5 10600K. We hope that in the near future we can focus on more processors from the new series of processors , That there are some more that interest us such as i7 10700K and i5 10400F at competitive price points.

As mentioned, this processor contains 10 cores and 20 active capillaries. His work frequency is the highest we have seen for a desktop processor to date, even given his large number of cores. With the maximum effort of even a high number of cores (4 or more) it can be met spending 5Ghz and even 5.1Ghz. In extreme situations when two active cores need to perform a task quickly, it will also accelerate to 5.3Ghz for a split second.

The bracket, the LGA1200 is brand new from home And built to deal primarily with 11th generation processors , When the XNUMXth generation processors called Comet Lake S, are a kind of middle generation. There are a few good reasons to think this way, when first and foremost this new platform comes with support for Version 4.0 when processors only support version 3.0 and support is not possible with them.

The processor heat casing is set at 125W. Setting the heat casing according to Says that as long as the processor stays at its base frequency of effort (3.7Ghz), one or less of it is the amount of heat it will emit and the amount of electricity it will also consume. Later in the review, we examined how high his actual power consumption was under effort.

One of the physical changes she made Moving to the XNUMXth generation processors is enhancing silicon heat transfer capabilities outward. The processor's silicon coating is now significantly thinner, and the cap made of copper has become thicker. Thanks to better heat transfer properties, this means that heat will move outward more efficiently.

Now, without saying words, we will pass the performance tests.
