Now, we know the specifications for all the available models from 12 to 18-core processors of X-series, that include - Intel Core i9-7920X, Intel Core i9-7940X, Intel Core i9-7960X, and the Extreme Edition Intel Core i9-7980XE processors.
Intel claims that X-series is the family of most powerful and high-end processors. “designed to deliver the performance needed to meet extreme computing demands for virtual reality (VR), content creation, gaming and overclocking.”
Given below is the Specifications sheet of all X-series models.
The complete information can be found at the X-series Processor family fact sheet.
The performance of each member of X-series processors family is measured under the regulations of SPEC*int_rate_base2006, a benchmark from the SPEC consortium that measures device performance and throughput using compute intensive application subtests. The company specifies,
“Intel Core™ i9-7900X Processor (3.3GHz up to 4.5GHz, 10C/20T, 13.75MB, 140W TDP) measured on – Motherboard: Gigabyte X299, Memory: 4x8GB DDR4-2666, Storage: Intel 750 PCIe SSD- 400GB, OS: Windows* 10 (RS2), Graphics: Nvidia GTX 1080Ti (Driver, BIOS:BIOS F5H , Intel® Turbo Boost Max Driver Version,
System Power Management Policy: High Performance.”
In a blog post, company has stated,
“The new X-series processor family is the ultimate platform for content creators and gamers. Multitasking becomes extreme mega-tasking with simultaneous, compute-intensive, multithreaded workloads aligned in purpose, powered by up to 18 cores and 36 threads. And, with up to 68 PCIe 3.0 lanes on the platform, people have the ability to expand their systems with fast SSDs, up to four discrete GFX cards and ultrafast Thunderbolt™ 3 solutions. Content creators can expect up to 20 percent better performance for VR content creation2and up to 30 percent faster 4K video editing over the previous generation while the Gamers and enthusiasts will experience up to 30 percent faster extreme mega-tasking for gaming over the previous generation.”
The company has announced the release dates of these processors as well. The 4-core to 10-core Intel® Core™ X-series processors are already available in the market from June 26, 2017. The 12-core processor will be made available from August 28 while the higher versions, i.e., 14-core to 18-core X-series processors will arrive on shelves from September 25.
