In the 10 generations of core desktop processors released by Intel at the end of April, although the technology and architecture of 14nm have not changed, it has achieved 10 core and 20 threads, while accelerating the frequency. The sub flagship core i7-10700k has also achieved 8 core and 16 threads, 5.1ghz. The core i7-10700k specification soared, and the TDP also reached 125w. Generally speaking, this means that it needs high-end radiator to meet the temperature control needs of high-frequency multi-core, but what if there is no fan and passive cooling?
6.18 Activities have been fully launched to promote the activity portal summary:
Foreign netizen hardware Numb3rs did this, as follows:
The results of the test unexpectedly, Core i7-10700K in the case of 50 W TDP、 without a fan really support, game performance is not much impact, World of Warcraft frequency can reach 4.7 GHz, temperature in the early 80s, the overall number of frames up to 120-140 fps..
Tomb Raider game is also similar, the average frame over 100 fps,CPU frequency is also more than 4 GHz, the temperature is higher than the Warcraft, can reach 85°C or more, plus a 12 cm fan after the temperature will be reduced to about 50°C.
From the results of the challengeThe game performance of a limited TDP to 50 W, Core i7-10700K doesn't actually drop a lot, but the temperature is obviously down a lot passive heat dissipation is possible When 80°C temperature is not acceptable, a fan can be controlled to about 50°C, which is much better than the performance under 125 W TDP.
