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. 😉
