Product and Performance Information


Intel® Thermal Velocity Boost (Intel® TVB) Disclaimer: Intel® Thermal Velocity Boost (Intel® TVB) feature is opportunistic at a temperature of 70°C or lower and when turbo power budget is available. The frequency gain and duration is dependent on the workload (best for bursty workloads), capabilities of the individual processor, and the processor cooling solution. Frequencies may reduce over time and longer workloads may start at the max frequency but drop as processor temperature increases.


DDR4 maximum speed support is 1 and 2 DPC for UDIMMs but only 1 DPC for SODIMMs. DDR4 2DPC UDIMM 2933 or 2666 is capable when same UDIMM part number are populated with in each channel.


I225 v1 (B1 stepping) reaches 2.5GbE on select switches/routers. visit www.intel.com/i225v1 for a list of validated switches/routers. I225 v2 (B2 stepping) is now in production and works at 2.5GbE on all compliant 2.5GbE Link partners.


802.11ax 2x2 160MHz enables 2402Mbps maximum theoretical data rates, ~3X (2.8X) faster than standard 802.11ac 2x2 80MHz (867Mbps) as documented in IEEE 802.11 wireless standard specifications and require the use of similarly configured 802.11ax wireless network routers.


Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX201 requires specific hardware configurations. Discrete Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX200 available for chipsets not supporting connectivity integration.

6As measured by in-game benchmark mode performance (score or frames per second) where available, or frames per second where benchmark mode is unavailable. PC Gaming Processors Compared: 10th Gen Intel® Core™ i9-10900K processor, Intel® Core™ i9-9900KS processor, AMD Ryzen™ 9 3950X. Prices of compared products may differ. Configurations: Graphics: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, Memory: 4x8GB DDR4 (2666, 2933 or 3200 per highest speed of the corresponding processor), Storage: Intel® Optane™ SSD 905P, OS Windows 10 Pro 1909 v720 19H2(RS6). Results: 10th Gen Intel® Core™ i9-10900K processor scored better on the majority of the 25+ game titles tested.

Available only on 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors featuring integrated graphics.
