Intel Core i9-7900X Processor Review

Jump To:

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.

      Get a real job and you can afford any of those things, kid.

      • Cyberguy

        But I can afford them. A thousand times over. And I don’t even need your “real job”. Why should buy something I don’t need? Grow up junior, you’re out of your league here.

          Yea go back to flipping those meat loafs, peon.

        • Cyberguy

          That’s it? That’s all you got? I’d hoped you were better at trolling that that.

          So sad. Come back when you get better at it junior.

    These kind of things are for the RICH who can TAX Wright them OFF because it is for their Company or Business.The Average person can’t do that. We just get to drool and Dream some day. BUT NOW there is the 1800 8 core NO MORE Dreaming. See the Price of the M.B.what a Joke.

      wtf are you on crack? Do you flip burgers for a living? $1000 is not for the rich, that is like couple days of salary, get a real job.

      • Cyberguy

        $1000 is way too much for this junk. Perhaps like you are fond of telling others, you should get a real job yourself if $1000 is all you get for a couple days work.

        Peasant.
