Intel i9-9900T

The Intel Core i9-9900T is a high end power efficient desktop processor based on the Coffee Lake architecture. Compared to the similar named top model Core i9-9900K, the 9900T offers lower clock speeds (2.1 - 4.4 GHz versus 3.6 - 5 GHz) and a reduced TDP of 35 versus 95 Watt. It still offers all 8 cores and 16 threads and is intended for small chassis or laptops.

The performance is clearly behind the Core i9-9900K and more in the realm of the older 6-core Coffee Lake CPUs.

The integrated Intel UHD Graphics 630 graphics card is clocked at up to 1.2 GHz and offers no advantage compared to previous generations. As it is a very low end GPU, only some low demanding games like Hearthstone can be played with it (see GPU page for benchmarks).
