Based on the Intel Skylake X micro architecture, this Core X processor lineup is oriented at HEDP (High-End Desktop) with options ranging from eight to eighteen cores for extreme performance. These processors are built using 14nm technology and support quad-channel memory. The Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0¹ identifies the processor's fastest two cores and directs your most critical workloads to them, to achieve optimized performance in lightly-threaded computing. Every processor is unlocked, enabling you to overclock beyond the maximum turbo frequency while the solder thermal interface material (STIM) safely delivers efficient heat transfer between the CPU die and heat-spreader, facilitating extreme overclocking.² These Core X processors come in LGA 2066 packaging and work with Intel X299 chipset motherboards.
This Intel Core i9-9820X model has 10 cores (20 threads), supports 44 PCIe 3.0 lanes, and features a 3.30GHz base frequency, 4.10GHz turbo frequency and 4.20 GHz maximum turbo frequency with Intel Turbo Boost Max 3.0 technology. It does NOT have integrated graphics so a discrete graphics card is required to complete your setup.
Whether you're working on your latest feature film or the next episode of a YouTube series, the unlocked Intel Core X-series processors are designed to scale to your performance needs by using the two fastest cores at higher frequencies and up to 18 cores when extreme mega tasking is required. Experience extreme performance, immersive 4K visuals, high-speed storage and memory, and the latest technological advancements—all designed to get you from the planning stages to final release, faster than ever.
Spend more time creating and less time waiting. The Intel Core X-series processor can handle your most demanding workload. Upload and edit your 360° videos quickly and experience VR videos—all in stunning 4K. There are no limits to what you can create on your new computer.
When creating your best work, you need the most responsive technology to handle multiple, CPU-intensive tasks at once. With an Intel Core X-series processor, you can edit your video, render 3D effects and compose the soundtrack simultaneously without compromising your computer’s performance.
The Intel Core X-series processor family comes unlocked to provide additional headroom. New features include the ability to overclock each core individually, AVX ratio controls for more stability, and VccU voltage control for extreme scenarios. Combined with tools like Intel's Extreme Tuning Utility (Intel XTU) and Extreme Memory Profile (Intel XMP), you'll have all the powerful tools for maximizing performance.
Improve efficiency with Intel Smart Cache technology. All cores now have access to the entire last-level cache, pre-fetching data before requests are made. Intel Smart Cache also features a new power-saving feature that dynamically flushes memory based on demand or during periods of inactivity, ensuring your applications keep up with your demands.
Increase your computer’s processing power. Available on Intel Core X-series processors, Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 identifies your processor's two fastest cores and directs your most critical workloads there.¹ With improved single-threaded performance, you get the best performance possible out of your computer.
1. Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 is available on select Intel Core X-series processors.
2. Altering clock frequency or voltage may damage or reduce the useful life of the processor and other system components and may reduce system stability and performance. Product warranties may not apply if the processor is operated beyond its specifications.
