As with most of these high-end processors, the der8auer overclocker had its testing dose with the Intel Core i9-10900K, which allowed it to verify their manufacturing quality.
In the tests he was able to test about 30 units of this CPU, revealing that not all are the same.
Of the 30 units tested with the same configuration and with the same ambient temperature, it was found that the 5.10 GHz processors with a voltage of 1.25v, had a temperature of 80 degrees in 6 of them, 12 reached an average temperature of 82ºC and up to 92ºC, a huge difference with respect to the coolest CPU that marked 79ºC, so we can see that between two CPUs there can be a temperature difference of 13ºC.
In consumption the same thing happens, with a peak of average consumption is at 251.1W and peaks of 278W, and others with a consumption of 232W under the same circumstances, that is, 46W difference consumption.
This makes it clear that Intel has a great lack of control around the quality of each silicon despite the fact that they are from the same batch, and that is that you will pay the same as any other user, with the difference that you are paying for a lottery that may have an effect on your CPU reaches an additional 13ºC compared to another CPU in equal conditions, something that is truly worrying for a Premium CPU.
