Intel officially reveals the specification of their high-end X299 CPU lineup

Up to 18 cores and 36 threads!



Read more on Intel's high-end X299 Skylake-X CPUs.

I would love to see a Threadripper 1950x versus the Intel 7960x comparison. I really am leaning AMD as its $700 cheaper if the performance is there.

I honestly don't understand when the top end x299 processors only have 44 PCI/E lanes.

OK, those prices are insane. The Ryzen will be slower dude, BTW. Well, that's if the Intel is not telling fibs and actually boosts to those clocks on every core. Which I doubt. I would imagine the actual number is around 4ghz, so it could be close. You would need to overclock the Intel and risk fryin' tonite.

Either way I can absolutely guarantee to you right now that it ain't worth no $700 for what could equate to like 300mhz more clock speed.

$1699. LOL.

From what I can see, the 12-18 core models are a response to Threadripper, effectively Intel using their X299 high core Xeon CPUs with consumer branding and an unlocked multiplier.

The simple answer for the PCIe lane problem is that Intel did not consider it an issue, and even with new CPUs they could not get motherboards to magic up more usable PCIe lanes current designs. IE, X299 is designed with 44 lanes in mind, so that cannot change until the next socket upgrade.

Turbo boost 3.0 is only for two of the CPUs cores.

Yeah that's right. Doesn't it pick like the best cores or something like that?

Aye, supposedly Intel chooses the two best cores with Skylake-X to maintain the lowest TDP/thermals they can.

With Skylake-X the Turbo 3.0 boost applies to 2 cores and not just 1.

That's the whole reason why I want to see some overclocking/performance testing. Let Tom and others see what these can do with manual clocking and voltage control. Also really interested in how HOT both x299 and AMD x399 chips are going to be when run at all cores and higher multipliers.

Just waiting on the videos

September 25th is not that far away. It's impressive they've managed to squeeze it out that quickly. I know it was a CPU that was essentially already in their lineup—just in a different field—but it's still impressive. I have no desire to buy these CPU's over Threadripper and even Coffee Lake, but some rich people are going to get a beast of a CPU.

Well the low end "WTF were Intel thinking?" X299 CPUs have TIM, so they need delidding. I *think* the 7900x is soldered though. AMD's will be soldered, I have no doubt about that (even the lower end 1800x pro thing). So yeah, I do expect the AMDs to suffer from the 4ghz "bug" limit thing we have seen so far (I can't see how more cores would change that?) but 4ghz on 16 cores is pretty frikkin' dope man. Linus busted over 3000 points in Cinebench. Compare that to my Broadwell E 14 core that scores about 2100.. Yeah, sick

4Ghz for 16 cores is huge performance, especially at $1000. If motherboards came down in price, you could have an absolutely amazing machine. I feel like telling Intel to suck it for their horrendous business practises, but I know that's just silly.
