Intel’s 18-core Cascade Lake-X flagship has been noticed once more, or a minimum of a benchmark of a processor (CPU) which seems to be the incoming Core i9-10980XE has appeared on-line.

As highlighted by @momomo_us on Twitter, the Geekbench Four outcome exhibits an 18-core (36-thread), high-end desktop CPU which is presumably the i9-10980XE, with the spec and benchmark outcomes roughly matching up with previous leaked particulars we’ve seen … with one caveat – extra on that later.

The CPU is as soon as once more ensconced in a Dell Precision 5820 workstation, and the system info within the Geekbench database experiences a 2.46GHz base clock velocity with Turbo to three.93GHz.

That appears way more peppy than the speeds we witnessed in an alleged 18-core Cascade Lake-X benchmark in August, only a month in the past, which was doubtless an earlier engineering pattern (it had a base clock of two.19GHz with enhance to three.28GHz, which we famous seemed fairly weak on the time).

This recent leak additionally exhibits that the purported Core i9-10980XE retains the identical cache configuration because the prior 9980XE 18-core flagship.

What’s additionally fascinating is that Tom’s {Hardware} scrutinized the Geekbench report file and experiences that the benchmarking utility registers the Core i9-10980XE with a minimal CPU frequency of 4,108MHz (4.1GHz) and max frequency of 4,779MHz (practically 4.8GHz).

Cores for concern?

As we noticed above, by way of the precise Geekbench Four outcomes themselves, the 18-core chip recorded a single-core results of 5,381 with multi-core hitting 51,514.

That’s a good lick sooner (4%) than the predecessor 9980XE which as compared reached 5,174 in single-core, and as Tom’s notes, the system it was in benefited from sooner reminiscence, too.

And whereas the single-core result’s bang consistent with what we noticed with the earlier leak for the alleged 18-core Cascade Lake-X chip, multi-core is certainly out of whack – that is the caveat we talked about earlier – and barely any sooner than the outgoing 9980XE. That may’t be the case for apparent causes, so it appears there’s some sort of error within the benchmark, with no different believable rationalization. 

Save that every one that is faked, in fact – which might by no means be dominated out with these type of leaks.

At any charge, assuming the multi-core result’s merely an error of some form, it’s good to get a affirmation of single-core efficiency ranges, and the upper clock speeds that the Core i9-10980XE appears to be like set to run at (in comparison with what we noticed in that earlier 18-core leak).

One query that is still is how excessive these clock speeds is likely to be set for the manufacturing chip, and the way, in flip, that may push the thermal design energy (TDP) threshold up – as a result of as but we don’t know something in regards to the energy consumption of this CPU.
