    A discussion thread relating to the Cascade Lake-X Processors only.

    Intel to release specs by 7/10/2019. 4/10/2019.

    Intel's next HEDT CPU (Skylake-X replacement) due out in October November 2019.

    According to all reports, existing X299 boards will be able to upgrade with just a bios upgrade.

    Great more shit I don't need OR will hardly ever use. I would have liked to have seen what the kabylake 10core could have done.
    I'm sure they existed. ES samples perhaps.

    ... and lol we get to keep our x299 boards :lol::rolleyes: faKK me no socket, chipset upgrades tick tock ... Amd smacked you with a rock

    How are they calculating their price per performance marketing metric against current 7xxx and 9xxx chips

    The 10 core is going to pricedrop under $1000AUD?

    Going to be interesting cause apparently your going to get more cores for the dollar. HEDT already plays in the same spaces as the single CPU W Xeon workstation arena. Eating into Intel's cash cow

    An out of the box 4.7Ghz 10C/20T Processor for my board is fine by me if around $1K street price.

    New i9 109x0 processors are on average ~10% faster it's predesors(except for 10980XE) according to Geekbench.
    https://www.techspot.com/news/82114-two-more-10th-gen-intel-x-series-processors.html

    50% price drop is also great news unless you bought 9980XE for $2700 recently.
    https://www.tomshardware.com/news/i...nch-specifications-10th-generation,40526.html

    I haven't heard any news on 10900K or 10700K. But I hope 10900K(8c/16t, 5.2GHz boost?)'s gonna be bit faster than 9900KS.
    i9 10900K could be mad for gaming if you can overclock to 5.2GHz on all cores with new Noctua NH-D15 remake etc. :)

    question is if its worth upgrading from a 9900X to one of these

    being able to keep my x299 itx board would be the cherry on top

    If you already have a 9900x then there is no point, unless you need the extra lanes or more cores.

    More details released by Intel. Pricing is based of 1K buy units, so expect per unit cost to be higher when they hit the streets.

    Its a tempting upgrade. Being able to get the top 18 core part for less than I paid for the 12 core 7920x.

    That's my thought as well but then recouping funds off the old chip would be hard. I already took a decent hit going from a 7900x to a 9900x to save 20c and avoid deliding.

    Bitter sweet for me. Intel teasing with lower prices after all this time.

    Sucks a bit for all of the existing 2066 owners but we will have to wait to see if there is enough gain to justify the sell/buy swap.

    I am rocking a fun i5-2066 as a placeholder until these release.

    If one already had a decent skylake-x then they really should be looking the other way.

    There cannot be huge gains as this is essentially a refresh.

    Unless these CPUs are good overclockers. May be we can get 5.0 Ghz across all cores for the 12 or 14 core processors. That will be awesome.

    Also I just saw this

    Intel i9 10920X 12 Core CPU Benchmark Leaked, Crushes AMD’s Threadripper 2920X

    https://wccftech.com/intel-i9-10920x-12-core-cpu-benchmark-leaked-crushes-amds-threadripper-2920x/

    Do note that these are leaked results, so we actually have to wait for final results.

    Better binned, yes likely. Similar to how they held back the anniversary 8086K. That's your better lottery ticket on a store bought 8700K
    5Ghz? Yeah more of a dream that one.

    9940x I ran even 49x maxed was stupid hot benching. Serious cooling needed is an understatement, then the clocks are rubbish summer ambient. Air con is a must.
