Intel Core X Family Features First TeraFlop Desktop CPU

With Turbo Boost 4.5 and 2.0GHz, all of the i9 chips feature base clock speeds of 3.3GHz, regarding up to 4.3GHz dual-core speeds and with Turbo Boost 3.0 also.

Intel core i9 - At Computex past year, Intel unveiled its first 10-core consumer CPU, the company's move into the world of a "mega-tasking".

The high-end i9 model, the Intel Core i9-7920X will feature 12 CPU cores, will support 24 threads, will be priced at $1652 and is planned for an August release. The difference is simple, Skylake-X can offer 12, 10, 8 and 6 core processors (+ threads), the other (Kaby lake-X) remains to be a quad-core part.

Intel is also upgrading its Turbo Boost technology on some of the higher end models of the Core X line, with what it calls Turbo Boost Max 3.0.

Intel has unveiled its latest range of processors at Computex 2017, the Core X range. With the release of its new Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X products, it appears to be doing both. The 30 percent boost came in one benchmark-SYSmark 2014 version 1.5-and applies to 15W U-series mobile processors.

"Along with this family of processors, we're introducing the new Intel x299 chipset, which adds even more I/O and overclocking capabilities. Content creators can have fast image rendering, video encoding, audio production and real-time preview - all running in parallel seamlessly so they spend less time waiting and more time creating", said Gregory Bryant, corporate vice president and general manager of the Client Computing Group at Intel. A recent SiSoft Sandra entry already has revealed the Core i7-7740K which at that point showed clock frequencies of 4.2GHz with a 4.5GHz Turbo. Along with the normal advances borne of better process technology, the company claims the i9 series offers 15% more performance for single threaded workloads and 10% more for multi-threaded workloads.

The headline is the Core i9-7980XE, an 18-core monster that should comfortably be the fastest consumer chip on the market when it launches.
