Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more complete information about performance and benchmark results, visit http://www.intel.com/benchmarks

Intel technologies’ features and benefits depend on system configuration and may require enabled hardware, software or service activation. Performance varies depending on system configuration. No product or component can be absolutely secure. Check with your system manufacturer or retailer or learn more at http://support.intel.com.

Performance results are based on testing as of March 21, 2019 and may not reflect all publicly available security updates. See configuration disclosure for details. No product can be absolutely secure.

1 Maximum processor frequency with Intel® Turbo Boost 2.0.

2 DDR4 maximum speed support is 1 and 2 DPC for UDIMMs but only 1 DPC for SODIMMs. DDR4 2DPC UDIMM 2666 is capable when same UDIMM part number are populated within each channel.

3 Based upon specification comparison of 9th Gen Intel Core desktop processors.

4 Altering clock frequency or voltage may damage or reduce the useful life of the processor and other system components, and may reduce system stability and performance. Product warranties may not apply if the processor is operated beyond its specifications. Check with the manufacturers of system and components for additional details.

System Configurations: 9th Gen Intel® Core™ i5-9400F Processor, PL1= 65W TDP, 6C6T, Turbo up to 4.1GHz, Motherboard: ASUS Z390A, Graphics: NVIDIA EVGA RTX2060, Gfx Driver Version: 419.35, Memory: 2x8GB DDR4-2666MHz, Storage: 1TB WD Black HDD + 32GB Intel® Optane™ memory M10, OS: Microsoft Windows* 10 RS5 Build Version 1809, BIOS: 17, ucode: 0x9A; 4th Gen Intel® Core™ i5-4460S Processor, PL1=65W TDP, 4C4T, Turbo up to 3.4GHz, Intel® HD Graphics 4600, Motherboard: ASUS H97MPLUS, Graphics: NVIDIA EVGA RTX2060, Gfx Driver Version: 419.35, Memory: 2x8GB DDR3 – 1600MHz, Storage: 1TB WD Black HDD, OS: Microsoft Windows* 10 RS5 Build Version 1809, BIOS: 3602, ucode: 0x24. SYSmark 2018 is published by the Business Applications Performance Corporation (BAPCo), a benchmarking consortium. SYSmark tests Windows* Desktop Applications performance using real-world scenarios: Productivity, Creativity and Responsiveness. Mainstream applications used in the scenarios include Microsoft Office*, Adobe Creative Cloud* and Google Chrome*. Each scenario produces individual metrics that roll up to an overall score. An Energy Consumption Test is also included that aggregates the total energy consumed during each scenario in watt hours (Wh), as measured by a compatible logging power meter. For Windows, SYSmark 2018 supports Win64.
