Intel i9-10900K Overview

The Core i9-10900K 3.7 GHz Ten-Core LGA 1200 Processor from Intel has a base clock speed of 3.7 GHz and comes with features such as Intel Optane Memory support, Intel vPro technology, Intel Boot Guard, Intel VT-d virtualization technology for directed I/O, and Intel Hyper-Threading technology. With Intel Thermal Velocity Boost, the maximum turbo frequency this processor can achieve is 5.3 GHz, or it can be boosted up to 5.2 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost Max 3.0. Additionally, this processor features 10 cores with 20 threads in an LGA 1200 socket, has 20MB of cache memory, and 16 PCIe lanes. Having 10 cores allows the processor to run multiple programs simultaneously without slowing down the system, while the 206 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 DDR4-2933 RAM and utilizes 10th-generation technology.

Graphically, the Core i9-10900K uses the integrated Intel UHD Graphics 630 chipset, which has a base frequency of 350 MHz and a dynamic frequency of 1.2 GHz. 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.

Hi Rasheed, the Intel Core I9-10900k processor is a desktop processor. Since there are some gaming laptops such as the Alienware Area-51m R1 Gaming Laptop that use desktop processors it might be possible as long as the motherboard is able to accept a processor that fits the LGA1200 socket. Thank you for choosing Intel.
