Hey! I wanted to know if a embedded CPU (Core i9-10900E) would work in a non-embedded motherboard? (10900E in a W480 or Z490 for example)
Thank you for contacting Intel Embedded Community.
We want more information to understand your question.
Due to this fact, we want to address the following questions:
Could you please let us know the part number and manufacturer of the cited motherboard? By the way, please inform us where is stated the information of the mentioned motherboard?
Could you please explain the reasons to use the cited processor?
We are waiting for your answer.
I hoping to purchase the i9-10900E for one of the following motherboards. Both motherboards don't have embedded CPU on their support page. Both boards, however, have the i225-LM which is a "embedded" Intel NIC.
- ASRock W480 CREATOR LGA 1200 Intel W480 SATA 6Gb/s ATX Intel Motherboard
- ASUS Pro WS W480-ACE LGA 1200 Intel W480 SATA 6Gb/s ATX Intel Motherboard
Caution: If the proessor is not in the supported processor list from the board manufacturer, IT IS NOT SUPPORTED.
It must be socket, chipset, AND BIOS COMPATIBLE.

Thanks! I will do that.
One other question: What is the all-core turbo of the i9-10900E? I can not find that information about that on the spec sheet. the Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 Frequency‡ on the spec sheet is "BLANK".
Example: the 10900F has a Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 Frequency is 5.0GHz. The all-core turbo is 4.6GHz, which is not listed on the 10900F spec sheet.
Thanks for your update.
