Intel i9-10980XE Overview
Compatible with their X299 chipset-based motherboards, the Core i9-10980XE 3.0 GHz 18-Core LGA 2066 Processor from Intel has a base clock speed of 3.0 GHz and comes with features such as Intel Deep Learning Boost, Intel Optane Memory support, Intel Hyper-Threading technology, Intel Virtualization Technology (VT-x), Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d), and more. With Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology, the maximum turbo frequency this processor can achieve is 4.6 GHz, and with Intel Turbo Boost 3.0 technology, it can further be boosted to 4.8 GHz. Additionally, this processor features 18 cores with 36 threads in an LGA 2066 socket, has 24.75MB of cache memory, and 48 PCIe lanes. Having 18 cores allows the processor to run multiple programs simultaneously without slowing down the system, while the 36 threads allow a basic ordered sequence of instructions to be passed through or processed by a single CPU core. This processor also supports up to 256GB of 2933 MHz DDR4 memory.
Intel did not design this processor with an integrated graphics chipset, meaning that users will need to purchase a compatible and dedicated graphics card of their choice. 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.
