Despite the fact that the desktop Intel Comet Lake’s can come out later than expected, the flow of leaks on them is not going to dry up. This time in the database benchmark SiSoftware was discovered the entry about testing the Intel Core i9-10900T that reveals unpleasant details about the power consumption of this energy efficient chip.
Intel Core i9-10900T will have 10 cores and 20 threads, 20 MB cache in the third level. According to SiSoftware, the basic clock frequency of this processor is 1.9 GHz, while the maximum turbocheetah reaches 4.5 GHz. Low base frequency due to the fact that, like other Core processors, the T series, the new Core i9-10900T will have a TDP of just 35 watts, which would make it an excellent choice for a compact, but productive systems.
However, as we know, the declared level TDP and actual power consumption are two completely different things. Here in the case of Core i9-10900T test SiSoftware determined that in fact, this processor consumes up to 123 watts. It is worth Recalling that Intel takes in the value of the TDP level power consumption when operating at a base frequency, calling it the value of “PL1” (Power level 1). The maximum power consumption allowed for the processor for short intervals of time is called “PL2”. And apparently, This has just determined the level PL2.
As for performance, the Core i9-10900T, the benchmark SiSoftware appreciated her 178,14 GFlops. For comparison, six-core processor Core i5-9600K in the same test score gains 196,81. Still, a significant decrease in clock speed greatly affects CPU performance.
