The Intel Core i9-10900F is a desktop processor with 10 cores, launched in March 2020. It is part of the Core i9 lineup, using the Comet Lake architecture with Socket 1200. Thanks to Intel Hyper-Threading the core-count is effectively doubled, to 20 threads. Core i9-10900F has 20MB of L3 cache and operates at 2.8 GHz by default, but can boost up to 5.2 GHz, depending on the workload. Intel is building the Core i9-10900F on a 14 nm production process, the transistor count is unknown. The multiplier is locked on Core i9-10900F, which limits its overclocking capabilities.
With a TDP of 95 W, the Core i9-10900F consumes a good deal of power, so decent cooling is needed. Intel's processor supports DDR4 memory with adual-channel interface. For communication with other components in the computer, Core i9-10900F uses a PCI-Express Gen 3 connection. This processor does not have integrated graphics, you will need a separate graphics card.
Hardware virtualization is available on the Core i9-10900F, which greatly improves virtual machine performance. Additionally, IOMMU virtualization (PCI passthrough) is supported, so that guest virtual machines may directly use host hardware. Programs using Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) will run on this processor, boosting performance for calculation-heavy applications. Besides AVX, Intel is including the newer AVX2 standard, too, but not AVX-512.
