Processor with Skylake-X Technology at the Top

The Intel Core i7-9800X processor offers 8 physical cores and is part of the new Skylake- X series. It uses the14nm manufacturing process using the latest technology available. Each kernel runs at a basic frequency of 3.8 GHz with Turbo mode and automatic overclocking up to 4.4 GHz. As with the previous generation, the memory controller is integrated into the chip directly. It is a four-channel DDR4 memory controller, which can now work at a tremendous frequency of up to 2666 MHz. The processor has an L3 cache of 16.5MB capacity. It also has an open multiplier for possible clocking. This model comes without a cooler.
