Intel Core i9-11900H

The Core i9-11900H is a 8 core CPU from Intel released in 2021. This chip has a very good overall score at 74% in our CPU benchmark. Our gaming benchmark shows that this CPU is a very good processor for gaming, with a score of 71%. As for multitasking and heavy workloads, the Core i9-11900H scores 75% and 74% respectively. Indeed, this is a very good rating for very heavy workloads.

The Core i9-11900H has 8 cores and 16 threads. This CPU makes use of simultaneous multithreading technology to improve performance on parallel tasks. Each physical CPU core is divided into multiple logical processors. This Intel CPU has a clock speed of 2.5 GHz and a turbo speed of 4.9 GHz : a higher clock speed that can be reached when thermals and power delivery allow. This CPU has a locked multiplier, so you are not able to overclock it beyond this frequency.

It can accommodate a maximum of 128 GiB of memory. Furthermore, this chip can handle up to 2 channels of RAM, a multichannel memory architecture allows for higher data transfer between the CPU and the memory. However, to take advantage of this, you must have enough memory slots filled. Error correcting memory is not supported on this processor.

In terms of cache, the Core i9-11900H has 768 KiB of level 1 cache, and 24 MiB of level 3 cache. This is a fast memory located close to the processor, which stores copies of frequently used data from main memory.

It has a total of 20 PCIe lanes.

Power and thermals for the Intel Core i9-11900H CPU are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 45 watts. This measures the amount of heat the processor produces when running at full load. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's good estimate.
