Intel Core i9-9900KF 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
The Core i9-9900KF 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, Intel Boot Guard, Intel VT-x and Intel VT-d virtualization technologies, Intel TSX-NI, SSE4.1, 4.2, and AVX2 instruction set extensions, and more. With Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 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 16 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 up to 128GB of dual-channel 2666 MHz DDR4 RAM and utilizes 9th-generation technology.

This processor also supports up to 128GB of dual-channel 2666 MHz DDR4 RAM and utilizes 9th-generation technology.

Intel did not design this processor with an integrated graphics chipset, meaning that users will need to purchase a compatible and dedicated graphics card of their choice. 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.
