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.
