There no truth to that rumor (it's made up by a poor quality 'news' site): the 95W K parts were brought forward to August alongside Z370, while the 65(-)W parts will release H1: 2018 alongside Z390 (=Z370 but with integrated Wi-Fi and USB 3.1 if memory served me right).

My advice would be to wait for August's Z370 and CFL-S. And even if multiple sources are wrong, what's a few weeks waiting?

@ TTL; I hope you meanwhile received your remaining HEDT CPUs and Intel hasn't cut you off after your video.

This is discussed numerus places. The glue used to glue the IHS to the pcb is of a curtain thickness. And they can't make it thinner, due to the production method.
The stock Intel TIM is acutally quite good, but there is a (on my memory) 0,06mm gab from the die to the IHS.
Some have tested it, with layers of paper, to make the thickness the samme as with glue, using premium paste, and the test showed very close to the same temps.
When delidding the glue is removed, so the gab is close to 0 + the use of liquid metal instead of a paste = -15-20c

I think it's best folks let go of this tease Tom let slip. Whether he posted it as a troll, it was a mistake he wants to back out of, or whether he's waiting for the right time, just let it go. If he can say it and he wants to, he'll say it. If it's something important and he can say it, I trust that he will. But if he doesn't, that's his prerogative.

Well tbh... you did kinda hype it up to be something really massive... overly so

So it's the best Rendering + gaming CPU right ?

As a hardcore Gamer and also Architect this i7 7820X should be the best choice right ? I'm doing a lot of 3D rendering which I could do faster with an 8 cores like the R7 1800X, but also gaming a lot and aiming for 4K, which would be better with an i7 7700K...

Does this combines the 2 in your opinion ?

Thx for the review
Cheers

If you don't mind spending a lot of money on the setup, yes, Skylake-X is the best performing CPU for both of those tasks. The X299 platform can be a bit confusing due to the way its features depend on the CPU used but you've come to the right forum for those questions as well.

But, 4k gaming is often actually less dependent on your CPU's single-threaded power, so Ryzen would probably be a better deal.
