Intel Core i9: six things worth knowing

Intel Corporation Sets Cinbench World Record Intel Core i9: six things worth knowing
Clarence Schmidt | 01 June, 2017, 01:55

Intel Corporation has announced the Intel Core X-series processors for high-end desktops that will immensely boost the performance of PC for advanced gaming, VR and content creation.

The first variant of the Core i9 series processors has been announced to be a 10 core, Intel Core i9-7900X. Key among them are a new "extreme" processor lineup called the Core X-Series, a coming 8th generation "Coffee Lake" Core chipset family, and more details about its Compute Card platform. Intel's Optane memory is also supported, thanks to the fact that all of the X-series processors use the company's new X299 chipset. Intel, the chipmaker unveiled a new family of "Core X" desktop processors at Computex, offering even more robust versions of its existing Core i5 and Core i7 models. This includes the 12-core Core i9-7920X; 14-core Core i9-7940X; 16-core Core i9-7960X and the ballistic and insane 18-core Core i9-7980XE. With full support for Turbo Boost Max 3.0 technology, the chip offers overclocking support and features 44 PCI-e Gen 3.0 lanes. Turbo Boost 3.0 has also been improved to increase both single and dual-core speeds. Beyond the number of threads, the chips share numerous same features including two memory channels and 16 PCle lanes.

Intel is facing off with AMD in the battle for share of the high-end computing market, and it has a new weapon in the fight.

As Intel notes, the new Core X-series CPUs are based on Intel's Sky Lake processors, while the four-core CPU is based on Kaby Lake design. The chips are based on Ryzen technology and are more powerful than the company's regular Ryzen 7 processors.

Liberals' discussions with the Greens for support in the minority parliament. "We're going to work together on this", said Weaver. The Liberals won the most seats, but were unable to persuade the Green party to back them in a minority government.

The chip-maker has shown off a monstrously powerful consumer processor as part of a new Core i9 range.

The Core-X lineup consists of the base model which has 4 cores all the way to the top with the i9 which has 18 cores and 36 threads - a first for any desktop processor.

As you can imagine, stuffing more cores into a processor leads to some significant heat issues.

Intel's Core X processing chips are set to release soon, within the 2nd quarter of this year. They'll start out at four cores, with Intel promising more affordable options than what will undoubtedly be a premium price tag for the Core i9 Extreme Edition.
