Intel has finally released its tenth series of Core processors. Reviews of top-end processors have been circulating on the net since yesterday. Our colleagues from the portal had tested two CPUs from the new line, and we, in turn, offer you to look at a couple of screenshots from their work.

In professional applications, the new items do not demonstrate anything supernatural. The six-core i5-10600K chip is on par with its direct competitor Ryzen 5 3600X, and the unrivaled (due to its 10-core layout) Core i9-10900K is clearly ahead of the 8-core Ryzen 7 3700X and 3800X and lags behind 12 – the core monster Ryzen 9 3900X:

The same cannot be said about gaming applications, where Intel products are traditionally strong. Although, in general, the superiority of new products cannot be called total. For example, the top-end chip of the last generation Core i9-9900KS actually goes on a par with the fresh 10-core i9-10900K, demonstrating similar results:

Next, we suggest that you pay attention to the first records obtained using the fresh Intel Core i9-10900K processor.

Let’s start with the discipline of CPU frequency. Here, in the Core i9-10900K rank, as of May 21, 2020, the overclocker under the pseudonym elmor is in the lead. Its result was an impressive 7707MHz:

7.707.62MHz (+ 108.31% to the base frequency of the chip)

In this case, the components for the test setup were the ASUS ROG Maximus XII Apex motherboard and G.SKILL TridentZ RGB RAM with 2 8GB slots.

Further, without any special comments, we will demonstrate a number of records set by the famous Korean enthusiast safedisk and his team:

The Korean also posted a photo report from his bench session:

The guys’ test setup consisted of the following hardware:

  • Motherboard – ASUS ROG Maximus XII Apex
  • RAM – G.SKILL Trident Z Royal 2 x 8GB
  • Video card – GeForce GT 710
