Puget System tests Intel Core i9-9990XE CPU

Runs really hot

Custom system builder Puget Systems has received a sample of the still-not-announced and limited edition Intel Core i9-9990XE processor. According to their tests, the CPU runs hotter than the other X-series chips. As previously announced, the CPU will only be available to OEMs and it'll be auctioned online once every quarter.


The chip features 14 cores and 28 threads, and it’s been combined with 19.25 MB of L3 cache. This CPU is supposed to make the life of the AMDs Threadripper 2920X CPU a bit harder. The Core i9-9990XE is based on Intel's Skylake microarchitecture using 14nm manufacturing process technology. Clock wise, the Core i9-9990XE sports 4GHz base clock with 5GHz boost clock and a 255W TDP.

Like the other X-series processors, the Intel Core i9-9990XE is compatible with quad-channel memory modules and up to 44 PCIe 3.0 lanes. According to a report of Matt Bach, the Senior Labs Technician at Puget System, the company's conventional air cooler isn't enough for this CPU.

During the next few days they will release a bunch of benchmarks scores as well and we hope to be able to test that CPU as well.
