Intel Corporation Finally Set to Whip Out "Core i9" Branding

Price war on Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 starts

All will have four times the L2 cache of the current i7-7700K and Turbo 2.0 Boost Max to increase the frequency of several cores at once as well as Turbo Boost 3.0 for single-threaded workloads. The chip also features 44 PCIe lanes and a 13.75 MB L3 cache.

Below that will be a chip called the Core i9-7900X. This is accompanied by two Intel Core i7 Kaby Lake-X CPUs.

Core i7-7640K: 4 cores, 4 threads, 4GHz base, 4.2GHz Turbo, no Turbo Boost 3.0, 6MB of L3 cache, 16 lanes of PCIe 3.0.

Then, finally, we have the Kaby Lake-X parts, which appear to be the same as the Kaby Lake-S parts that launched back in January of this year but are created to work with the X299 platform.

They all also offer improvements in the amount of level 3 cache, the number of PCIe tracks (more capacity of expansion) and a remarkable work frequency that will be another of the key arguments made for these micros. The 7800X chip has a 3.5 GHz base clock with a 4.0 GHz boost clock, with an 8.25 MB L3 cache and 28 PCIe lanes.

The question of whether these would be the answer to AMD's recently released Ryzen series of processors is still a subjective matter, however.

Both of these CPUs will reach 112W TDP, which is hot but not as much as the reported 140W of the Skylake-X units.


Last week, a member of Anandtech forums, leaked what appears to be a new series of processors by Intel.

Along with these, there are Core i7 processors in the line. Built on the Skylake-X architecture it will have 12 cores and supports 24 threads. Intel's Broadwell-E based 10-core chip offered a maximum turbo boost 2.0 speed of only 3.5GHZ, which meant the user had to push the chip to higher-than-rated speeds just to match Intel's $350 chips in tasks that couldn't use more than four cores.

Intel's been relatively quiet over the past year or so. It will clock at 4.0 GHz normally and 4.2 GHz when boosted.

Shares of Intel closed higher on Monday.

Experts though opine that the Skylake X chips would be positioned in the same segment as the Intel HEDT (high-end desktop) range did in the past. It'll be interesting to see if this product stack is compelling enough to drive upsell from Intel's mainstream desktop platform to the high-end desktop platform, and up the stack within the high-end desktop platform.
