Intel Introduces Skylake-X, Kaby Lake-X and X299 Platform

Postby Apoptosis » Tue May 30, 2017 12:40 pm

Intel has finally taken wraps off its long-awaited Core X-Series processors and accompanying X299 chipset, which means high-end desktop computing is going to be getting a big horsepower injection! The Intel Core X-series processor family introduces Intel’s first teraflop desktop CPUs, the entirely new Intel Core i9 processor, and the first consumer desktop CPU with 18 cores and 36 threads. This is by far the fastest desktop processor every released, but Intel is actually introducing a total of 9 processors for the new ‘Basin Falls’ X299 platform ranging in price from $242 for a quad-core Intel Core i5-7640X all the way up to $1,999 for the Intel Core i9-7980XE 18-core monster.

Would be nice to see a comparison of the Core i7-7800X and the Rysen 1700 ($299 on Amazon) that can be OC'd to 4Ghz. Both should be compared stock and OC'd. Since these are the sweetspots of AMD and Intel in multicore CPU segment. I know that Intel will probably be faster but the question is - is it worth the price difference?

I know!!!!! I cant wait till they are out in the wild and being tested against the Ryzen!

My i7-3770k is still chugging along though so I doubt I will get one but it is fun to see the competition, if there is any. Plus I want a 3d printer 8)
