Intel releases the base clock of their i9 7920X 12-core CPU

This CPU's base clock is 400MHz lower than the i9 7900X.



Read more on Intel's i9-7920X CPU.

Base is 100 faster than the 14 core I just bought for £369. Will be interested to see how this performs stock, and what it will cost.

Me thinks they are not going to be able to compete with AMD on performance or price

Performance they are going to win. Only because their CPUs clock higher than 4ghz, and IIRC Skylake X has a edge over Ryzen (which is around Broadwell EP speeds).

However, whether there's a motherboard on the market that could hold those clocks at, let's say, 4.5ghz? that's the big question. There is a reason why Intel have set the stock base clocks so low. Probably because when all 12 and 24t are going at it the VRMs get taken on a bobsleigh ride to hell.

So if it throttles? then yeah, if the AMD 16 core can hold its clocks at 4ghz then they might just win.

Intel 10 core base 3.3
Intel 12 core base 2.9?
AMD 12 core base 3.5 and for 1/2 the money

I think the base speed means the literally lowest speed on all 12c. I think when AMD say 3.5 they mean one thread, and the rest all at once will be lower.

Don't quote me on that though !

I'm pretty sure that's stock for AMD and then I think it was 4ghz boost. I'd check but on mobile

Also lets not forget the cheaper motherboards once factored in really make the Intel option erm not an option ever

Intel chipsets are very expensive. I remember some one at EVGA telling me once that X58 chipsets with both SLi and Crossfire enabled cost a fortune.

They also require a license for you to use their sockets. Nvidia did something to annoy them, no more sockets for you. That is why Nvidia stopped making chipsets and motherboards.

So yeah, AMD boards have always been historically cheaper for similar spec/range etc. I don't know if you need a license for the socket with AMD, but even if you did it would probably be easier to get.

It's kinda like console royalties. M$ and Sony charged something mental like 25%, Nintendo charged 7% or something like that. Per game sold, like. That is why PC games used to be cheaper, because M$ are not allowed to charge any fees. Not that it's helped, greed has prevailed
