Cores12More cores means more threads and therefore more processes can be run simultaneously
Speed2.9GHzClock frequency indicates processor speed, but is only reliable in comparisons between CPUs of the same family
CodenameSkylake-XThe code name given by the manufacturers
Release Date28 Aug 2017 The more recent the release, the more likely the CPU will receive up-to-date manufacturer support
TDP140WThe lower the TDP, the less power the CPU requires to run and thus the more efficient it is and the less heat it creates
L3 Cache16.5MBThe L3 cache is the largest CPU cache, but still provides very quick access to data
Lithography14nmThe smaller the lithographic technology used, the less power is required to run the CPU, and the less heat is created during intense use
CPU SocketLGA 2066The motherboard socket and CPU socket should match to indicate the CPU is compatible with the motherboard and will fit into it
Unlocked MultipliernoAn unlocked clock multiplier means you can adjust the multiplier for an overclocking speed boost

Core i9-7920X 12-Core 2.9GHz compatibility review

Overall, the Intel Core i9-7920X 12-Core 2.9GHz has exceptional performance. Its 12 cores clocked at 2.9 GHz provide swift processing speeds and allow many processes to be run simultaneously.

The CPU is over 3 years old, meaning it is based on aging technologies and will not have the level of support that you would find in a newer processor.

Created with lithographic technology sized at 14 nanometers, the Core i9-7920X 12-Core 2.9GHz is built for extreme speeds and efficiency, although with a Thermal Design Power of 140W it requires a large amount of power to run.
