    Intel said to be readying Core i9 CPUs with 6, 8, 10 and 12 cores

    Skylake-X processors info comes from a 'leaked' Intel PowerPoint presentation.

    Those low end chips look a bit feeble compared to Ryzen. This is Intel's high end platform, I woldn't pay that premium for 16 PCIe lanes, and a CPU with 4 cores 4 threads and only dual channel RAM. It's only the top two CPUs that look interesting and going by intel's recent pricing strategies they'll weigh in around the £800-1k+ mark, nevermind the likely Mobo cost.

    TDP is too high... I will stick to Ryzen.

    Re: Intel said to be readying Core i9 CPUs with 6, 8, 10 and 12 cores

    So intel are basically a rebranding the current 2011-3 i7's class cpus to i9 when they get refreshed with skylake. Not exactly a bad thing to stop the potential confusion.

    While I like the idea of the 12/24 thread chip I can't see that being cheap, I'd guess that's going to be £2000 or even more when it's released.

    While my personal direction would likely be multiple ryzen machines I now need to consider the software I use as it's currently going through changes to the way they charge users (extra licensing needed for network rendering etc) so one machine with more cores could potentially be cheaper overall for me..... now where's rizens desktop competitor to that 12/24

    Well, the current Broadwell-E 6950X is $1,700. That's the 10C/20T and the current top HEDT chip but the previous top HEDT chip was the Haswell-E i7-5960X which was only $999 like most previous Intel 'Extreme' processors. Now before Ryzen, Intel might have been tempted to add another price category above that for the 12C/24T but now I would expect a max of $1,700.

    Well, AMD's workstation chips are rumoured to launch soon too. Codename 'Threadripper' with max 16C/32T (for now, the latest rumours point to X399 being socket compatible with Naples so higher counts might be possible at some stage). Plenty of rumours on our Zen chitchat thread:
    AMD - Zen chitchat
    And over on the OCUK and Anandtech forums.

    If the leaks are anything to go by then Ryzen's HEDT chips will have a higher TDP than this.

    Do you think Intel knows of an R9 Ryzen range and is getting a head?

    Except they're also effectively rebranding previous gen i5's to Kaby Lake-X i7's... yeah... no.

    Re: Intel said to be readying Core i9 CPUs with 6, 8, 10 and 12 cores

    So, they bump the clocks as high as it'll suffer to magnify the performance difference when running games at 128x128, and disregard the TDP?

    If you took those bottom 2 off and they were all i7s then I would believe it, but as it is it just sounds like BS.

    Re: Intel said to be readying Core i9 CPUs with 6, 8, 10 and 12 cores

    Unless Intel can really lower the cost of the overall platform cost compared to buying a Ryzen system, this isn't really a compelling offering from them, if it is true.

    Core i9-7900X Skylake-X 10 / 20 3.3GHz 4.3GHz (Turbo 2.0) 4.5GHz (Turbo 3.0) 13.75MB 44 140W and 2nd from top

    or

    AMD 1955X 10/20 3.6/4.0Ghz 125w 44 pcie lanes 2nd from bottom of range

    AMD is looking a very compelling option indeed.

    The bottom two are the most likely, remember devils canyon? Intel have a track record of rushing higher clocked CPUs to market, they're just a clock boosted 7700k and 7600k

    Very anxious to see how these 2 companies price their CPUs. Ryzen pretty much killed the Broadwell-E X99 platform overnight. Very interested on how Intel will now react.
