Intel Core i9-9980XE

The Intel Core i9-9980XE is a high end desktop / workstation processor based on the Sky Lake-X Refresh series. It integrates 18 processor cores based on the Sky Lake-X architecture that clock between 3 and 4.4 GHz (Turbo Boost 3.0). 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.
