Intel Turns Up The Dial To Core i9

17 May, 2017, 13:12 | Author: Rachel Hardy
  • AMD's next GPU generation is almost ready

These are the Intel Core i9, which will appear in the next few weeks in two versions with 10 and 12 process cores and will also have up to 44 PCIe tracks to create desktop PCs with truly fantastic features.

The i7-7640X will be a quad-core processor with four threads, 6 MB of onboard L3 cache memory, 16 PCIe lanes, and dual DDR4-2666 RAM. This unit, however, will have a base clock rate of 4.3 GHz and it will make a 0.2 GHz jump when user step on the Turbo 2.0.

The chip will be clocked at 3.6 GHz base, 4.3 GHz boost with Turbo 2.0 and 4.5 GHz base with Turbo 3.0.

All told, it looks as if Intel has done a much better job with its Skylake-X line of products than it did with the prior generation of Broadwell-E parts aimed at the same market. First, there's the amount of L3 cache.

The Intel Core i9-7900X is the 10 Core, 20 thread replacement to the Core i7-6950X.

Brazil declares end to Zika emergency after fall in cases
Brazil's Health Ministry declared on Thursday that the country's public health emergency as a effect of the Zika virus is over. The event also introduced "Marty Mosquito", public health's mascot for Zika prevention and awareness.

The chip would feature a total of 13.75 MB cache, that's 1.375 MB per core.

As per the leaked presentation, the i9 will be starting at hexacore/12 threaded i9-7800X, before going all the way up to a 12 core/24 threaded i9-7920X.

Sweepr, the Anandtech poster who leaked this information, claims that Intel has made up for the sharp L3 deficit by quadrupling the size of its L2 cache. For according to an internal documentation outlining its future chip releases that got leaked online, Intel has some heavy duty chipsets in the making that could unsettle AMD's Ryzen range. And how effective (and how large) various caches need to be for optimal performance is partially a function of the cache architecture. Currently, the Core i7-6850K supports 40 PCI-Express lanes with an MSRP of $617 - $628.

Just on paper, it sounds like AMD could challenge Intel, especially for non-gaming applications that rely more heavily on parallel processing. Ryzen 7 doesn't now offer a 32-lane solution either, though there's speculation that the company's rumored HEDT competitive solution will, when and if it's released. This is accompanied by two Intel Core i7 Kaby Lake-X CPUs. Releasing an entry-level HEDT "Core i7" that would assuredly be outperformed by the Core i7-4790K, 6700K, or 7700K isn't the best way to encourage enthusiast adoption and I'm taking these rumors with a fair bit of salt. None of the other processors leaked here list Turbo Max support, though it's possible the Core i9-7920X will, since no clockspeeds were provided.
