I'm looking for an Intel CPU with higher core and suitable for programming. Aspects are as follows,


  • Frequency
  • Cores/Threads
  • Can run multiple Virtual Machines ( I think this needs RAM)

I don't care power consumption.

Thanks a lot!


I happen to have just built a new PC with Intel i9-9900K it has 8 core and 16 thread for $700 CAD. I think it's best for the buck if you are looking for higher core counts and thread counts as well.

  • cool. Will this CPU be overheat? – Li Ming Jan 27 '19 at 6:25
  • @LiMing So far it works fine for me. Averaged 80C when under really heavy load. – user10629 Jan 27 '19 at 6:26
