  • Intel Core i9-10980XE Cascade Lake-X CPU Can Hit Lofty 5.1GHz Overclock Across All 18 Cores



    Quote





     




    The flagship of the new Cascade Lake-X family is the Core i9-10980XE (say that three times fast), which is an 18-core/36-thread CPU. The processor has a base clock of 3GHz, a maximum Turbo Boost 2.0 clock of 4.6GHz, and an all-core turbo clock of 3.8GHz.




     




    However, Intel’s Mark Walton has confirmed that the processor has plenty of overclocking headroom to hit 5.1GHz with liquid cooling (instead more exotic liquid nitrogen setups).




     




    You can overclock the heck out of these and get some really interesting results,” said Walton to PCGamesN. “For example, we’ve had the 10980XE, the eighteen-core processor, up as high as 5.1GHz in the lab using standard liquid cooling. And that, is all cores.”




     




    However, Walton also cautioned that this result was obtained with a chip that in its testing labs and YMMV once you get a chip in your own rig. “Just to be clear on that, every chip is different, some chips will overclock better than others, but it is possible,” he added.

    If any of this is even remotely true (within +/- 300MHz), this will really shake up the CPU marketplace yet again. Because if the 18-core parts are allowing these insane all-core overclocks. In theory, less cores often means better overclocks. Translating to these Cascade Lake-X parts actually being worthy competitors to Zen 2 (3000-series). 




     




    The 10920x displayed more than satisfactory performance against the 2920x, according to a leaked benchmark:




     












     




     




     




    While this is a 2nd Gen Ryzen part in the above chart, here is 3rd Gen Ryzen (3900x) performing only slightly better than the 10920x (3% better):




     




    https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/14734945 @ 4.10GHz




     




    There is also another 3900x entry showing a 12% better score:




     




    https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/14512679 @ 4.29GHz




     




    So I guess we will have to wait and see if leaked benches with these Cascade Lake-X parts with an overclock appear, to do a better comparison. As the chart above the 10920x is @ 3.8GHz. We could extrapolate performance, but I doubt performance scales linearly in Geekbench with overclocks.




     




    EDIT: Did some quick maths: In the WCCFTech chart the 10920x's score is 44,046 @ 3.8GHz (Supposedly). Meaning @ 4.1GHz it would score around a 47,550 and @ 4.3GHz it would score a 49,800. This is looking really good for Intel, because they are claiming 4.5GHz + overclocks with these parts.

    • Nationwide ban of Galaxy S10 Fingerprint Reader - fingerprint log in removed from banking app
      by Dudicrous
      Related to the recent security flaw found with the Galaxy S/Note 10 series, which you can read more about below 





      Banks in the UK have decided that the flaw with the fingerprint reader is too much of a compromise for its customers and have started removing the fingerprint option for the app. 




      At the moment it's just Nationwide and Natwest that have done so, but I wouldn't be surprised if others followed suit.

    • Intel Xe GPU release date, specs, and performance
      by Dudicrous
      The Intel Xe GPU represents Intel’s first foray into discrete graphics since the ill-fated Larrabee project many years ago. But let’s not dwell on the past, this is a bright new future for Intel, and potentially PC gamers too, as it means we’re going to have a genuine third player in the graphics market and that can only be a good thing. For us, at least.
      • It looks likely that the initial Xe GPUs will largely be based on the building blocks put in place by the Ice Lake Gen11 graphics architect

    • Verizon can't cover a basketball stadium with 5G
      by Dudicrous


      Quote





      Verizon on Friday announced that its 5G network is now available in three NBA arenas and is coming to seven more by the end of the 2019-2020 basketball season. But there's a big caveat, just like there is with Verizon's 5G coverage in NFL stadiums: Verizon 5G only covers some of the seating areas.

      TeamSpeak, one of the most popular voice communication apps for gaming before Discord came along and took over the world, is returning with a new look. The team behind the software has kicked off a closed beta for a completely new application that does away with the old school setup for something that will obviously be compared to what Discord offers.
