Intel i9-10980XE Overview

Compatible with their X299 chipset-based motherboards, the Core i9-10980XE 3.0 GHz 18-Core LGA 2066 Processor from Intel has a base clock speed of 3.0 GHz and comes with features such as Intel Deep Learning Boost, Intel Optane Memory support, Intel Hyper-Threading technology, Intel Virtualization Technology (VT-x), Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d), and more.

This processor also supports up to 256GB of 2933 MHz DDR4 memory.

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.

Please note that a CPU cooler is not included and must be purchased separately.

Intel i9-10980XE Reviews

Very powerful multicore processor

By Peter
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-12-29

This is a very powerful 18 core 36 thread workhorse of a processor. I upgraded from a Core I7-5960X 8 Core to this and the performance difference was absolutely incredible. My computer was fairly snappy before but now its almost hard to describe just how much quicker everything opens now, especially when opening large zip or bin files.

TIME SAVER. It rip's through everything in after effects. I feel robbed by the i7 7820x I had in it before. It is a little hotter than id like with corsair h150 elite but Texas.

Maximum Number of PCIe Lanes 48 (Revision 3.0)?
Asked by: sam
Additional Question, I understand the CPU supports the additional Lanes, Doesn't the Mother Board have to support them too, Do all the X299's support them, I Believe this was designed also for the Kaby Lake that only had A total of 16 PCIe lanes;, the Sky lake 44 and the Cascade lake 48, But the Mother Board and Bios also has to support that.

Will this processor work in an HP Pavilion HPE h8-1120 Desktop?
Asked by: Bart
Hi Bart, the Intel Core i9-10980XE requires a motherboard that has the LGA 2066 socket. Your HP Pavilion HPE h8-1120 Desktop motherboard has a LGA1155 socket that only supports 2nd generation Intel Core Processors. B&H does carry motherboards that are compatible with correct chipset which you can check out here https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/products/Motherboards/ci/19864/N/3835434462?filters=fct_a_cpu-socket_3756%3Alga-2066%2Cfct_chipset_4896%3Aintel-x299 Thank you for choosing Intel.
