Intel Corporation's Core X-Series Processors Revealed

AMD roadmap confirms Vega for June, Ryzen Threadripper this summer

While a new Core-i9 chip built on the Skylake-X platform will likely be Intel's contender for the hot seat, AMD too is believed to be readying the new Whitehaven platform that might include Ryzen 9 range of chips.

The i9-7920X will come next with 16.5Mb of onboard L3 cache and supporting 44 PCIe lanes.

The i9-7900X takes things up one more notch at 10 cores and 20 threads, 44 PCIe lanes, the same 4x RAM setup and 13.75 of L3 cache.

I put all of the scores into one of our benchmark templates, so you can see the scores in a much easier to understand way. This unit, however, will have a base clock rate of 4.3 GHz and it will make a 0.2 GHz jump when user step on the Turbo 2.0. However, there's no telling yet whether it would have a higher base clock value than the 10-core i9-7900X model. Although there is no news about the pricing of these chipsets, Intel is expected to keep the prices competitive considering the stiff competition from Ryzen.

Below that will be a chip called the Core i9-7900X. These new offerings of the i7 Core lineup will fall under the Kaby Lake-X category, and they will deliver enhanced performance for a hefty premium, according to reports.

Armed Groups Allow Evacuations To Begin From Embattled CAR Town
UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said on Sunday he was " outraged " by the attacks on the 13,000-strong mission. People connected with the anti-Balaka group are also suspected in the attack.

As per the leaked presentation, the i9 will be starting at hexacore/12 threaded i9-7800X, before going all the way up to a 12 core/24 threaded i9-7920X.

Next up there is the i9-7820X, an octa-core processor with threads that double its core count, 11 MB of cache, the same PCIe lanes as the 7800-X, and the same RAM configuration as the rest of the lineup. Assuming that Intel and AMD both release full details there, these CPUs could be in computers shipping this summer. Increasing the L2 cache by 768KB doesn't automatically compensate for shrinking the L3 cache. It will have 11MB of L3 cache memory and sport just 28 PCI Express lanes. The six-to-12-core variants will all be rated at a 140-watt thermal design power, while the quad-core chips will be rated at 112 watts. Unless Intel plans to substantially slash prices, that would actually be a worse deal than at present.

Finally, it's not clear why Intel would even bother releasing Core i7 CPUs with these specs. It would not be a surprise if Intel tags with a list price of more than $1,000. On the other hand, the Kaby Lake-X family will have two processors - Core i7-7740K and Core i7-7640K.

The Core i7 has been the highest-performing consumer chip for a long time.
