Intel recently officially released a new generation of desktop fever processor cascade lake-x, which again continues the 14nm process and skylake architecture. Compared with the previous generation, it further improves the frequency, supports higher frequency memory, more PCIe 3.00, DL boost machine learning acceleration, 2.5 Gigabit wired network and Wi Fi 6 wireless network.
In fact, Intel’s previous generation of febrile processors is a similar approach. How much overclocking space does this generation have when the process architecture of two consecutive generations remains unchanged and the frequency continues to increase?
Very unexpected, very big
For example, the latest flagship core i9-10980xe has 18 cores and 36 threads. The reference frequency is maintained at 3.0GHz. The maximum acceleration frequency of core 2.0 is increased from 4.4ghz to 4.6ghz. The acceleration frequency of core Max 3.0 is increased from 4.5ghz to 4.8ghz. In addition, the whole core acceleration frequency is 3.8ghz.
In the actual measurement of foreign media, using the ordinary integrated air-cooled radiator, the i9-10980xe exceeded the full core 5.1ghz. Yes, all 18 cores operate at 5.1ghz!
At this time, it has not been disclosed whether it can run points, temperature and power consumption, but it is not easy to exceed this share.
In addition, the price of this generation of core X has been greatly reduced, and the i9-10980xe has halved to $979. After calculation, the average price of each core of the new core X has been on a par with the AMD Ripper.
