The Core i9-10900 2.8 GHz Ten-Core LGA 1200 Processor from Intel has a base clock speed of 2.8 GHz and comes with features such as Intel Optane Memory support, Intel vPro, Intel Boot Guard, Intel VT-d virtualization technology for directed I/O, and Intel Hyper-Threading technology. With Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 and Thermal Velocity Boost, the maximum turbo frequency this processor can achieve is 5.2 GHz. 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 20 threads allow a basic ordered sequence of instructions to be passed through or processed by a single CPU core. This processor also supports 128GB of dual-channel 2933 MHz DDR4 RAM and utilizes 10th-generation technology.
Graphically, the Core i9-10900 uses the integrated Intel UHD Graphics 630 chipset, which has a base frequency of 350 MHz and a dynamic frequency of 1.2 GHz. A thermal solution is included and protection is provided by a limited 3-year warranty.
