Intel Core i9-7900X Processor Review

Power Consumption

No review is complete without taking a look at power and the Intel Core i9-7900X did fairly well considering it is an 10-core processor with a 140W TDP.

At idle the Intel Core i9-7900X Skylake-X platform used 67W at idle and that is impressive as includes the ASUS X299 motherboard,  NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 FE video card, SATA SSD and the Corsair Hydro water cooler. The processor topped out at 238W in Handbrake and 307W when playing Thief at 1080P.
