Intel Core i9-7900X 10-Core Processor Review

2017 will go down as one of the more interesting years in the CPU market. AMD released their Ryzen CPUs earlier this year and now Intel has the brand new Core X Series, which is solely aimed towards gamers and enthusiast. This high-end desktop (HEDT) series is quite interesting as when completely released there will be a total of nine processors, stating with a quad-core Core i5 ($242) and going all the way up to a 18-core Core i9 ($1999). Another new thing we are seeing here is the Core i9 Series, which is reserved for the highest-end Intel processors. Intel will release five out of the nine Core X Series processors on June 26th, and today we have the Core i9-7900X up for review. This processor right now is the current flagship until the other processors come out, and it is quite a beast! Rocking 10-cores, 20-threads, a 3.3 GHz base clock, max Turbo Boost 3.0 of 4.5 GHz, 13.75 MB of cache, 44 PCI-Express lanes, and a TDP of 140 watts. You get all of this for $999. Let’s jump in and see what the i9-7900X is all about!
