Wootware WootBook Ultra II

With all the time I spend around gaming/enthusiast hardware, it takes a lot to be impressed and even more to get excited about. One can imagine then, that a notebook would be the last thing I’d consider as exciting. However, that was until I spent time with the WootBook Ultra II. If that doesn’t mean much to you, maybe the latest Intel 10th Generation Core i7 CPU and a refreshed NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPU may pique your interest.

Intel® introduces 10th Generation Core Series for Desktop

Intel® has released the 10th generation core CPU family, featuring Core S-Series processors with up 5.3GHz frequencies.

It easily reveals both the main means of performance gains and the audience to which this is most relevant.

WEB: INTEL Price: ZAR 20,199| U$D 829.23  AUTHOR: TheOverclocker

Intel is back again, this time with their most powerful HEDT CPU yet, the Core i9 10980XE. 18 cores running at up to 4.8GHz. Intel is leveraging it’s improved 14nm manufacturing process and extracting as much as possible from it to good measure. The 10980XE may not be the best CPU at any single task, but it does well enough in them all that it makes a great case for itself. With a variety of configuration options, this is easily the most flexible CPU Intel has to offer. Find out more in TheOverclocker Presents – Intel Core i9 10980XE

Life with the Intel Core i9 10980XE

 WEB: INTEL MSRP: USD $999.99 | ZAR  18,999 | AUTHOR: Neo

Life with the Intel Core i9 10980XE. Way after the reviews have landed, there’s the everyday experience with the CPU. Something that benchmarks can’t really tell you. This video is just some of my insights on the CPU and using it everyday. Despite the criticism leveled at the CPU, I like this one. If the older 7980XE was justifiable at nearly $2,000 / R36,000 or so, surely the 10980XE at $999/ R19,000 makes even better sense.

Either way, make of it what you will. Until next time. 😉
