Intel i9-10850K Overview

The Core i9-10850K 3.6 GHz Ten-Core LGA 1200 Processor from Intel has a base clock speed of 3.6 GHz and comes with features such as Intel Optane Memory support, Intel Boot Guard, Intel VT-d virtualization technology for directed I/O, and Intel Hyper-Threading technology.

This processor also supports up to 128GB of dual-channel DDR4-2933 RAM and utilizes 10th-generation technology.

Graphically, the Core i9-10850K 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.

I replaced my 4-core Intel i7 with this one. Rendering time for my video editing was dropped significantly.

Would've been too expensive at the time of release, now a great value for such a high-end CPU. Works great, satisfied with the performance. AMD is cool, but this generation of Intel chip feels just as great. Also, BH photo ships their products really fast. Great service. Thanks!

Best price I found online along with 2 games can't be beat. Keeping many other factors in mind: 64GB ram, Gigabyte Aorus Elite Motherboard, 8GB nVidia Graphics, SSDs, and this bad boy by Intel is went far on benchmarks. I'm pleased with the performance.

Top level performance and affordable price. This Intel Core processor i9 10850k has been used every day for a year and a half. Still functions like new. Benchmark of 4225 on Intel extreme tuning utility for Windows. I can run many anti virus scans, apps and programs, movies, video games, driver verfier, and music on high performance mode all at the same time. No crashes or spinning wheels of death. Nothing slows this beast down. I highly recommend this product.
