Suddenly: Core i9-9900K so cool just because Intel decided to cheat

Recently, Intel released the Intel Core i9-9900K. The top eight cores with a frequency of 5 GHz to an impressive and originally very expensive even with the official price tag. About the real cost at the moment, I do not say anything.

So, here I have already introduced you to the first at that time tests this CPU. In particular, I noted very high CPU consumption. Let me remind you, Core i9-9900K under load consumes 30-50 watts more than the Core i7-8700K, although the value they have the same TDP of 95 watts.

Yes, the TDP does not indicate the real power consumption. Moreover, the modern budget CPU Celeron and Pentium (full, not “atomic”) consume much less than prescribed in the TDP. In the case of Core i9-9900K all the way around.

The question arose, how is it, exactly? Why at identical TDP novelty eats, not in itself, in comparison with the last top? It turned out, the answer is quite amusing.

So, first entry. Any modern Intel CPU (AMD system is approximately the same) can operate in a particular frequency range. For the same Core i9-9900K, which is 3.6-5.0 GHz. But, I think you all know that these values are relative. The first indicates the minimum frequency, which must reach the CPU when loading all cores (although in the mobile segment, as shown by the new Intel shestiyaderny, this condition is not already running) and the second maximum frequency to be achieved by the CPU under load only on one core.

It is easy to guess that in most real tasks, the frequency will be somewhere in the middle between the conditional extreme values. Limit values for each CPU are determined by the table of frequencies Turbo Boost technology. Here, for example, the table for some of the models eighth generation.

But you need to understand that these values are the maximum possible. In reality, as modern graphics cards, frequency overall, and for each set of loaded cores in particular, are regulated by the power limit. This is conventionally the same TDP.

Explain for better understanding. Take a couple processors: Core i7-8700K and Core i7-8700T. They have the same number of cores both have support for HT, and generally it is two absolutely identical piece of silicon. But the first TDP — 95 W, and the second is only 35 watts, that is almost three times lower. As you can see in the table above, the difference is not only in the extreme frequencies, but the frequencies for a specific number of loaded cores. For example, when loaded with only three cores, Core i7-8700T can work a maximum of 3.9 GHz, whereas the Core i7-8700K frequency is 4.5 GHz. Often values are selected so that in either mode the processor is relatively speaking not go beyond your limit power. But in our case, it is not so.

That is, make a Subtotal. We have a table of frequencies Turbo Boost, which shows maximum frequency for a given number of loaded kernels, and thus there is a limit of power that must fit the processor. If the limit is high enough, the CPU will work on those frequencies that are listed in the table. If the limit is insufficient, the frequency will be lower than the maximum.

I think it’s pretty clear. Now let’s go further. Core i7-8700K with its TDP of 95 watts under load, consumes just about the same. Of course, application-dependent, but conditionally it fits into your limit. Let me remind you, he’s got six cores and a frequency of 3.7-4.7 GHz. All six cores can work a maximum of 4.3 GHz. And now take Core i9-9900K. He has eight cores and a frequency of 3.6-5.0 GHz, and Intel promises that all eight cores can run up to 4.7 GHz. And TDP is the same. Magic? No, deceit or even false.

Here we come to the climax directly. So, the guys from TechSpot found that Core i9-9900K on any system Board, which they have been running out of its power limit. Simply put, Intel, together with partners, untied his “hands”, not limiting it thereby TDP of 95 watts. This was done precisely in order for the processor to work on all possible frequencies to maximize results. Without the transition to 10-nanometer standards Intel simply could not create such a productive eight-core processor, holds up to 95 watts.

They decided to test what would happen if I had to limit the CPU its official TDP. And that’s what happened.


As you can see, the gap in performance is quite significant. Now the Core i9-9900K not everywhere ahead of Ryzen 7 2700X, and if ahead of, it is often negligible. But they have a gap in price, even officially. And if not officially, then for the current European price of the Core i9-9900K you can buy two top Ryzen and will remain for two top-end air cooling.

And what happened to the temperatures and power consumption?

The temperature dropped just incredible, and the energy consumption was even lower than the six-core Core i7-8700K!

The results in the games I will not show yourself, you can look at the source. Do not show, because the difference is often either not at all or it is minimal.

And now the overall result. What to do and how to treat? Well if we are talking about ordinary users, and there is nothing in any way. Most simply don’t care what the limits are, why the CPU is works so how it works is that problems with the heating affect everyone but people just consider them when choosing a CPU. If to speak about us, who are interested in these issues more deeply, who write the news and who prefers to understand the details (I intentionally did not use the word “geek”), one can conclude on the basis of the information provided in this material. Actually we are cheating by Intel, since it pointed very far from the reality of the power limit. But on the other hand, we got really very powerful processor, which for most is much more important. You can tell that he works out of the box in overclocked mode.

What do you think? Correctly received Intel?

  1. Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good success If you know of any please share Cheers!

  2. I have mastered some significant things through your blog post One other subject I would like to express is that there are lots of games on the market designed specifically for preschool age youngsters They involve pattern acknowledgement, colors, wildlife, and shapes These typically focus on familiarization as opposed to memorization This will keep children and kids occupied without having the experience like they are learning Thanks

  3. One thing I’d like to say is that before getting more personal computer memory, have a look at the machine in which it could be installed If the machine is actually running Windows XP, for instance, the particular memory limit is 3 25GB Installing over this would basically constitute a new waste Make sure one’s motherboard can handle the upgrade quantity, as well Interesting blog post

  4. A few things i have seen in terms of computer system memory is the fact there are features such as SDRAM, DDR and so on, that must match the specific features of the mother board If the pc’s motherboard is fairly current while there are no operating system issues, replacing the storage space literally normally takes under an hour It’s on the list of easiest laptop or computer upgrade procedures one can visualize Thanks for discussing your ideas

  5. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed They say this man will rule the world under a one world igion called spiritualism

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace It will be a false peace for a period of time You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things They have their plans set in place It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name ” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast
