Intel has introduced a new “almost flagship” decategory processor for desktop systems, called Core i9-10850K. About preparing novelties became known not so long ago, but it immediately became clear that it would be a little more affordable alternative to the flagship desyatiletnego Core i9-10900K.
From the “big brother” Intel Core i9-10850K you’ll be reduced by 100 MHz clock frequency. The result is the base frequency of the new model is 3.6 GHz and the maximum frequency of automatic overclocking of one core mode Thermal Velocity Boost reaches 5.2 GHz. All ten cores in the same mode is able to automatically accelerate up to 4.8 GHz. The suffix “K” in the name indicates that the product has a free factor, that is amenable to manual overclocking.
Despite the reduction in the frequency of TDP remains at 125W. This level of consumption, we observe, characteristic of the underlying frequency. During the most intense overclocking chip is able to claim twice – to 250 watts. Intel Core i9-10850K, as well as other members of the family Comet Lake-S, LGA 1200 and is compatible with motherboards on the Intel 400-series.
Reduction of clock rate has also led to cost reduction. The recommended price of the Core i9-10850K is $453, which is $35 (or 11 %) cheaper than the flagship Core i9-10900K. This makes the product more attractive choice for those not chasing every megahertz or believes in its overclocking power.
In addition, the withdrawal of the Core i9-10850K solved another pressing problem: the range appears Intel processor that can be more compelling competition 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X, which is currently sold in stores at a price of around $430.
