Comet Lake Core i9-10900T CPU at 35 Watt rating hits 123 watts in Sandra benchmark

Published by


TDPs are often a very tricky thing, but this one definitely falls into the category, odd. In the SiSoft Sandra database, an entry appeared of a pending Core i9-10900T processor, that T in there is for the energy-friendly 35 Watt models.

Now, make no mistake, we're talking about a 10-core/20-threads processor. So in low base-clock loads achieving 35 Watts, I would find it amazing by itself all together. That, however, is not the case, the benchmark shows that the Core i9-10900T actually draws up-to 123 Watts under load. Again, 10 cores, I am not shocked, but with a rating of 35 Watts, it's definitely on the high side if you think about it for a small form factor build. The base clock (the absolute lowest load clock for all cores) should be 1.9 GHz for the Core i9-10900T. The processor is listed as having a 4.5 GHz boost frequency (single thread). 

CPU Cores/threads Baseklok Turbo 1T Max Turbo 3.0 All-core turbo TDP
i9 10900K 10C/20T 3.7 GHz 5.1 GHz 5.2 GHz* 4.8 GHz 125W

i3 10300 4C/8T 3.7 GHz 4.4 GHz - 4.2 GHz 65W
i3 10100 4C/8T 3.6 GHz 4.3 GHz - 4.1 GHz 65W
* Intel Thermal Velocity Boost (single core / all core): 10900K: 5.3/4.9 GHz; 10900: 5.1/4.6 GHz

Of course, you need to keep in mind, this is an engineering sample, also it could very well be tweaked at some level of form.BTW this i9-10900T scores 178.14 gops, that at the same level as a Core i5-9600K. Comet lake is was expected to launch in April, however due to everything going on in the world, in between April and June seems more of a realistic scenario.
