Intel Corporation's Core X-Series Processors Revealed

AMD shows Radeon Vega Frontier Edition AMD roadmap confirms Vega for June, Ryzen Threadripper this summer

All four will be based on Intel's Skylake-X architecture while the upcoming i7 7640K and 7740K processors will be 4 core chips using Kaby Lake. The Core i9-7800X is going to feature 6 cores, 12 threads and will carry a total of 8.25 MB of L3 cache. The core clocks are maintained at 3.3 GHz base, 4.3 GHz boost with Intel Turbo 2.0 and 4.5 GHz boost with Intel Turbo 3.0.

The number of PCIe lanes in the eight-core Core i9-7820X and six-core Core i9-7800X is reduced to 28, and the boost clock speed of the latter to 4GHz. The 7900X might be at its base 3.3GHz frequency, and the 7920X at 3.3GHz, which would explain these scores. The leak was corroborated this morning with benchmarks over on Guru3D, so it seems likely that we're about to be staring down a Core i9 line of processors over the next few months.

A total of four Core i9 processors under the Skylake-X family have been named - Core i9-9720X, Core i9-7900X, Core i9-7820X, and Core i9-7800X. A Core i3 processor represented the "good", a Core i5 processor represented the "better", and a Core i7 was the creme de la creme, representing the best consumer-grade processors that money could buy. It's the reason my primary desktop is still rocking an Intel Core i7-4790K Devil's Canyon processor released several years ago. The result from Intel has been swift, and awesome: a rumored new line of super-high-end CPUs, with technology improvements that should trickle down to everyone's laptop. But criticisms over the quality of the leak aside, it looks like Intel is readying a potent lineup.

Clearly, Core i9 CPUs would be replacing i7 as the top-tier CPUs.

The average, relatively uninformed computer buyer (e.g., most computer buyers) will see that a system powered by a Core i7-7700K is a Core i7-based computer and that the Core i7-6900K-based machine also has a Core i7.

If this does turn out to be on the money, as already mentioned, AMD is certainly winning the battle of the core count with these high-end enthusiast processor ranges, while also keeping power efficiency ticking along very nicely.

It is thought the new chips will be available in the summer, possibly as soon as June. The upcoming i7 7740K and 7640K chips will have a 4.3 GHz and 4.0 GHz base clock respectively, with boost clocks going up to a respective 4.5 Ghz and 4.2 Ghz.

When investing geniuses David and Tom Gardner have a stock tip, it can pay to listen. It was only a matter of time until Chipzilla retaliated, and a leaked slide from a German presentation suggests that Intel is stepping up its own Skylake-X HEDT (High End DeskTop) platforms.
