Intel core i9 10980x

Before Intel launches the Core i910980XE next month, we have a preliminary understanding of performance expectations through preliminary tests. Site Lab501 can obtain engineering samples and test them before other outlets.

Since the test cannot confirm and refer to the pre-release version of Core i910980XE 100%, a certain degree of suspicion is recommended. Therefore, when the final commercial version arrives, the results of consumer trends may be different. The

Lab501 runs the Core i910980XE by using the Gigabyte Aorus Master X299 motherboard, and uses the updated BIOS to associate with the 32GB of GSkill SniperX DDR43200 (NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti). The

technology site compares performance with other select CPUs from AMD and Intel, including Core i79700K, Core i78700K, Core i99900K, Ryzen 9 3900X, Ryzen 7 3700X, and Ryzen 7 2700X.

In gaming-oriented tests, the Core i910980XE is only slightly behind the Ryzen 3900X with 4K Shadow of the Tomb Raider, but is roughly comparable to 1080p or 1440p.

As for the Metro Exodus, the Ryzen 9 3900X is again slightly ahead of 4K by about one frame, and provides the same meager advantage at 1080p and 1440p. In other games like Grand Theft Auto V and Far Cry New Dawn, the results follow the same pattern very consistently.

With Cinebench R20, the Core i910980XE scored 458 points compared to the Ryzen 3900X 522 in the single-thread ray tracing test. In multi-threaded mode, the Core i910980XE jumped to 8563, dwarfing the Ryzen 9 3900X and its fractal 7076.

Lab501 then runs the Core i910980XE through DaVinci Resolve 1.5 to render 4K video in about 96 seconds, while the Ryzen 9 3900X takes longer, 109 seconds. The next closest competitor is the Ryzen 7 3700X at 157 seconds.

with PCMark 10, the Core i910980XE scored 7214 points, convincingly defeating the Ryzen 9 3900X with 7571 points.

Although the results gave us an interesting understanding of the characteristics of the latest Intel chips, we suggest that we wait until next month to make a final decision. However, we will definitely have the latest information, so be sure to keep looking for more information!
