The CPU uses the 14nm technology and supports the LGA1200 socket. It has a TDP of 125W and comes with an unlocked multiplier so you can overclock it with a Z490 motherboard. You can use the following links if you are interested in picking up the Intel i9 10900K:

Use these links to pre-order the Intel i9 10900K. You are also going to need a compatible motherboard to go with this beast of a CPU. You can check out our recommended Z490 motherboards list.

You should also take a look at the MSI Z490 MEG Unify and Asus ROG Maximus XII Apex Z490 motherboards. These motherboards do support PCIe Gen 4 but the Intel 10th generation CPUs do not support the feature. Reports claim that the 11th gen Intel CPUs will support PCIe Gen 4 but that is something that time will tell.

Z490 motherboards along with the 10th generation of CPUs will release on the 20th of May. These include the i9, i7 and i5 models. Later on, starting May 27th, the Intel 10th generation i3 CPUs along with the non-K series SKUs will release alongside the H470, B460 and H410 motherboards.

  1. B&h claims the socket to be lga1151. This concerns me that I’m not looking at the correct cpu, but all the other specs are accurate. I don’t want to miss my chance to get this chip!

  2. The z490 boards DO NOT support PCIe 4.0 and the i9 10900k is NOT on the 12nm architecture rather it’s on the same 14nm++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++.

    • Z490 motherboards do have PCIe Gen 4 support but because the 10th gen CPUs do not support the feature you won’t be able to use it.

      • Nice, well im glad to hear that due to this same board being what the 11th gen will use too. Keep up the good work!
