Intel Core i9-10980XE

Intel i9-10980XE

The Intel Core i9-10980XE is a high end desktop / workstation processor based on the Cascade Lake-X series. It integrates 18 processor cores that clock between 3 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost 3.0). Compared to the i9-9980XE, the 10980XE increased the Turbo clock speed by 200 MHz and offers additional AVX-512 instructions for small data types (8 Bit and 16 Bit integer). The basic architecture is still similar to Skylake. Thanks to HyperThreading the CPU can handle up to 36 threads at once. The individual cores are connected by a mesh instead of the ring bus in the consumer CPUs.

The performance in multi-threaded applications of the 18 core CPU is excellent, however in gaming and workloads with less threads, fast clocked consumer CPUs like the Core i9-9900K are faster.

The CPU is specified with a TDP of 165 Watt and therefore needs a big and capable cooling system.
