Intel Core i9-9820X is the latest Intel processor in the X series of the lineup. It is also one of the fastest processors in the industry and probably one of the fastest consumer processors up to date. Coming with a CPU frequency of 3.30 GHz which can be turbo boosted upto 4.10 GHz it is faster than the Intel Core i9-8950HK without turbo boost. 16.5 MB SmartCache and 8 GT/s DMI3 bus speed add to the performance of this beast from Intel. 20 threads and 10 CPU cores will ensure that your multi-tasking and high-end gaming needs are met.
You can use a maximum of 128 DDR4 RAM with the i9-9820X and a maximum of 4 memory channels. But unfortunately, the processor does not provide support for ECC memory cards. So if you want ECC support, this processor may not be the right choice for you. Also, there is no integrated graphics available on this processor that even reduces the features. So, this will be only suitable if you can afford a high-end graphics card that leverages the maximum potential of the CPU. So, if you were planning to depend on the processor graphics which is available in most of the Intel CPUs, this product is not for you.

It is a disappointment that there is no processor integrated graphics available on this Processor. It would've been an amazing product if Intel provided an integrated graphics with it. I was searching for a high-performance CPU and everything else seem fine with this one except the graphics. Now, I will have to use an extra graphics from Nvidia or something in order to play even some basic games. Anyways, a good product that would've been better with an integrated graphics. Try better next time Intel.
Building a video editing PC is a very difficult task. To render the best of the quality videos needs a lot of system resources as well as graphics. This processor helps in that are a lot. Even though there is no graphics inbuilt in the processor, it still helps the video editing needs pretty good. No matter how big the file you editing is, or how many frames are in it, the processor seamlessly manages to maintain the quality and render the videos as quick as possible. If you are going for it for editing videos, it is a good move according to me.
