, Intel and AMD in the chip field of war has again raged. Yesterday (May 30th) the opening of the 2017 Computex Taipei international computer show, Intel unveiled a chip in the field of the latest products and the achievement, especially the long-awaited Core X processor family products, including a highly anticipated Core i9 processor. " according to Intel introduced Core X family processor Intel desktop processor is by far the most powerful, but Intel has always been the most scalable, accessible and most powerful platform. "And the consumer oriented desktop Core X i9 series is the debut, the top with the model for Core i9-7980XE, with 18 core, 36 threads, known as the first with a trillion floating-point performance of desktop processors. So Core" X i9 family processor platform with scalable platform, because can be combined 4-18 different kernel. The current release from the 4 core Core i5-7640X began, has been extended to the highest level of the 10 core Core i9-7900X, and during the 6 and 8 core, Intel said that the future will launch 18, 16, 14, 12 core version, which will set in a different price, goal is to meet the desktop fancier and content creators group is the most widely the.
Intel official has confirmed that the Core X family processor based largely on Skylake-X micro architecture, only the i7-7740X Kaby based Lake architecture design, specific models and prices are as follows:
- i9-7900X:10 core, 20 threads, $999 (about 6800 yuan)
- i7-7820X:8 core, 16 thread, 599 dollars (about 4100 yuan)
- i7-7800X:6 core, 12 thread, 389 U.S. dollars (about 2700 yuan)
- i7-7740X:4 core 8 thread 339 dollars (about 2300 yuan)
- i5-7640X:4 core, 4 thread, 242 dollars (about 1700 yuan
currency) from a performance point of view, Core X family processor in i9-7900X, compared to the previous generation i7-6950X products in 10% multi thread performance, single thread performance 15%.
Core the X family processor some of the specifications as below, you can see the TDP thermal design power of these processors are 165W, 140W and 112W are normal. The functional properties, support four channel DDR4-2666 memory, support for Intel XMP 2, supports up to 44 PCIe 3 channel direct connection CPU, supported by fast solid state disk, support multiple graphics card combination, support Thunderbolt technology 3. " at the same time, Core X family processor without locking support, performance tuning, hyper threading technology support, support core frequency acceleration technology Max 3 (only more than 8 nuclear products) is the role of the technology, two core recognition performance of the most outstanding and let these kernel assume a key work load to achieve single or multithreaded performance significantly improved. At the same time also supports Intel launched the "intelligent system accelerator":Optane aoteng memory through DMI 3 provides faster throughput, even large storage capacity mechanical hard disk can significantly improve the response speed in order to improve the performance of the system. " is a Intel X299 chipset and Core X processor family collocation, motherboard unified by special Core X family processor LGA 2066 socket, and having a plurality of enhanced I/O function. For example, to support a total of 30 high-speed I/O channels support 3 Intel rapid storage technology PCIe 3 X4 storage, support I219 Ethernet connection, support aoteng memory, supports up to 8 SATA 3 ports, a maximum of 10 USB 3 interface etc.. " also consider most core multi-threaded and higher TDP, Intel also specifically for the Core X family processor to prepare a new radiator. The radiator model is TS13X, the maximum air volume is 73.84CFM, the noise level is between 21-35dBA, the speed range is 800 - 2200rpm, the main target is those 165W and 140W TDP Core X processor models. " Core X family processor as the launch date, Intel official said Core X family processor boxed version, expected in the next few weeks, will be through online retail channels and channel partners around the sales, also equipped with Core X
