Intel Corporation's Core X-Series Processors Revealed

Intel Corporation's Core X-Series Processors Revealed

Here are the Intel Skylake X Core i9-7920X, Core i9-7900X, Core i9-7820X, and Core i9-7800X Mega-Tasking CPUs leaked. According to the leak, Intel is preparing two CPUs based on the Kabylake-X architecture and four CPUs based on the Skylake-X architecture.

According to the forum discussion, these new processors will be unveiled at COMPUTEX Taipei 2017 in Taiwan at the end of the month. At stake will be the highly lucrative high-end PC gaming chip market.

But with its latest generation of Ryzen chips, AMD changed the game.

Below that will be a chip called the Core i9-7900X.

Let's start from the bottom up.

The 10-core chip in the Skylake-X lineup, for example, can achieve a maximum turbo boost 2.0 speed of 4.3GHz.




The Intel Core i7-7640K will feature 4 CPU cores, will not support Hyper Threading, will come with 6MB of L3 cache, 16 PCIe Lanes, will be clocked at 4.0Ghz and will be turbo-boosted at 4.2Ghz. It will clock at 4.0 GHz normally and 4.2 GHz when boosted.

The processor would support between 28 and 344 PCIe lanes and the TDP would be toasty 140 watts. 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. Some leaks say they could go up to 160W, which is a bit worrisome without some serious cooling mechanism.

The first of these products is the hexacore i9-7800X, packing 8.25 MB of L3 cache and quad DDR4-2666 RAM.

Interestingly, buyers of the top-end chip will get a massive 16.5MB of L3 cache, the toughest and fastest memory bank available in the market today. Its clock starts ticking at 4.3 GHz and it stops at 4.5 GHz after overclock.

The Core i9-7820X, with 8 cores, will have the same features, but a 3.6Ghz base overclockable to 4.5Ghz. 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. It is not known though what would be the clock speed of the i9-7920X.

Ever since the release of the Intel Core processor line-up, we have only witnessed three categories of CPUs including Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7.
