Core i9-10980XE


Performance
1241k points

Description
The Core i9-10980XE is a cpu manufactured by Intel that was released on November 2019. This model has 18 Cascade Lake-X cores with HyperThreading, runs at 3000 MHz as base frequency and has a a thermal design power of 165 W.

Cascade Lake is a architecture focused on high-end CPUs that uses the 14nm process. There are i9 and Xeon models using 4 different cores: Cascade Lake-SP and Cascade Lake-AP for servers, Cascade Lake-W for workstations and Cascade Lake-X for home high-end Pcs.

Non-optimized benchmark
The benchmark in Mode 0 (FPU) measures cpu performance with non-optimized software. It uses the basic µinstructions from the i386 architecture with the i387 floating point unit. This mode is compatible with all CPUs so it's practical to compare very different CPUs

Monothread performance graph
Monothread performance graphics gives the performance vs time. They are useful to measure the time it takes to the CPU to reach the maximum performance.

Usually, CPU's performance will be steady during these tests but if it has a slow frequency strategy, the first samples will show a lower score.

Multithread performance graph
Multithread graphs measure the performance against a heavy load during certain time.

If CPU's TDP doesn't limit the frequency and the machine is properly cooled, performance should remain steady vs time. Otherwise, the performance score will oscillate or decrease over time.
