Intel Core i7-9700T desktop processor spotted on UserBenchmark
Just because a chip has been designed to be restricted by its low TDP doesn’t mean it can’t perform. An Intel Core i7-9700T CPU has been discovered in UserBenchmark, and it has done admirably well in the tests on offer. The processor was benchmarked on a system utilizing a Gigabyte B360N Aorus Gaming Wi-Fi motherboard and 16 GB RAM operating on Windows 10.
The i7-9700T reached an average benchmark score of 91.3%, which UserBenchmark labels as “outstanding”. The end result puts the thermally limited CPU in 42nd place in the database’s rankings, out of 1,147. The Intel Core i7-9700T has a base clock of 2.0 GHz and has a TDP set at 35 W. As only one sample has been tested, there is a high margin of error.
It’s interesting to compare the i7-9700T with the already launched i7-9700K and i7-9700KF. The Coffee Lake i7-9700K chip managed an average bench result of 113%, putting it in 13th position. The i7-9700KF variant, which does not include an iGPU, was in 12th place with an average of 115%. Both these processors performed well, but they have much higher TDPs of 95 W. The i7-9700T’s result actually puts it right next door to the i5-9400F (91.4%) that has a TDP of 65 W.
