Many criticisms have been revealed after the official launch, but Intel is down for the already over-compressed lithographic process and that continues to surprise. We have a final sample directly on its new TOP gaming processor, the 9-10900K, which after passing through the user's hands WolStame It showed its strengths and weaknesses.
High end processor that will need cooling to match
As is already the case with their AMD partners (Ryzen 9 3900X and Ryzen 9 3950X), when asking so many nuclei what they can be under pressure, temperatures do the same and tend to rise faster with levels that many consider dangerous.
What we will see next is a scan of the processor mentioned below AIDA64 in FPU with Furmark running at the same time for the GPU, which will show that the processor is stable even when all its main buses are demanding.
Though it endures successfully without any problems above 47 minutes, expressed by HWinfo64 is not a luxury, since it shows the use of 235.17 Watts on average with temperatures below that 93 ºC.
Although they are really high figures, they should be considered to be obtained using a 240 mm AIO, so it means that the processor will need custom cooling to be able to keep temperatures below or near 80 ºC.
Intel Core i9-10900K – Throttling-free and durable
Logically, we're looking at temperatures we might think the CPU would get into Throttling faster, but none of this. After more than a quarter of an hour, the frequency remains stable 4.77 GHz to 4.8 GHz and AIDA64 shows non-rise and decrease in actual melting temperature.
If we take the precursors of their 10-69 predecessors (6950X, 7900X, 9900X and 10900X) into the HEDT range with high IHS, what Intel has achieved is quite limited, because the frequency is so high that in general, all of this is used. it is similar under overload at this distance and instead 240 mm AIO has been able to keep this CPU up to date and limited, something that could not be thought of by any of the CPUs discussed above.
Obviously not good statistics, it won't be a processor for all listeners, not without cooling TOP air or at least AIO capabilities, but it shows that Intel's evolution in its lithographic process is far greater than the expected 10 cores of the said better inform).
It is true that pressure testing is very demanding and that in games the temperatures will be very low, but it is an example of how to take a node and CPU up to the physical edge that promises to give battle Zen 2 and Ryzen 9 3900X and Ryzen 9 3950X.
