Intel Core i9-9900K 3.6 GHz Eight-Core LGA 1151 Processor
Key Features
  • 8 Cores & 16 Threads
  • 3.6 GHz Clock Speed
  • 5.0 GHz Maximum Turbo Frequency
  • LGA 1151 Socket
Only compatible with their 300-series chipset-based motherboards, the Core i9-9900K 3.6 GHz Eight-Core LGA 1151 Processor from Intel is designed for gaming, creating, and productivity. It has a base clock speed of 3.6 GHz and comes with features such as Intel Optane Memory support, AES-NI encryption, Intel vPro technology, Intel TXT, Intel Device Protection with Boot Guard, Intel VT-d virtualization technology for directed I/O, and Intel Hyper-Threading technology for 16-way multitasking. With Intel Turbo Boost Max 3.0 technology, the maximum turbo frequency this processor can achieve is 5.0 GHz. Additionally, this processor features 8 cores with 16 threads in an LGA 1151 socket, has 16MB of cache memory, and 24 PCIe lanes. Having 8 cores allows the processor to run multiple programs simultaneously without slowing down the system, while the 16 threads allow a basic ordered sequence of instructions to be passed through or processed by a single CPU core. This processor also supports dual-channel DDR4-2666 RAM and utilizes 9th-generation technology.

Intel i9-9900K Overview

Only compatible with their 300-series chipset-based motherboards, the Core i9-9900K 3.6 GHz Eight-Core LGA 1151 Processor from Intel is designed for gaming, creating, and productivity.

This processor also supports dual-channel DDR4-2666 RAM and utilizes 9th-generation technology.

Graphically, the Core i9-9900K uses the integrated Intel UHD Graphics 630 chipset, which has a dynamic frequency of 1200 MHz. If you need even more performance, this processor is unlocked, which lets you overclock the processor over its maximum speed. However, this is not recommended, as it will void the limited 3-year warranty.

Please note that this processor does not include a heatsink or fan and requires a separately-sold CPU cooling solution.

Will it come with 3 years intel warranty

Will it come with 3 years intel warranty
Asked by: Md
Intel provides a three-year limited warranty on Intel® Boxed Processors, if purchased separately or as part of a computer system. Is product registration required before processing a warranty request? If you purchased your system from an OEM, contact them directly for registration and warranty requirements. ( now if you should overclock the CPU the warrantee is voided, so be careful.)

Asked by: Ben
The manufacturer does not list the stepping in their specs as its likely to change over the products life. We are unable to check the stepping version of a CPU.
