Rumor: Intel Planning 12-Core Core i9 CPUs to Challenge AMD's Ryzen

Rumor: Intel Planning 12-Core Core i9 CPUs to Challenge AMD's Ryzen

According to WCCF Tech, the Intel Skylake X Core i9-7920X processor is a juggernaut featuring a total of 12 cores and 24 threads. The core clocks are maintained at 3.3 GHz base, 4.3 GHz boost with Intel Turbo 2.0 and 4.5 GHz boost with Intel Turbo 3.0.

I put all of the scores into one of our benchmark templates, so you can see the scores in a much easier to understand way.

The two middle SKUs will also feature Turbo Max support with both the Core i9-7920X and Core i9-7900X being able to hit 4.5GHz in some situations. However, there's no telling yet whether it would have a higher base clock value than the 10-core i9-7900X model. Skylake-X processors will be targeted at the high-end desktop PCs that need the extra power for simply the best performance. The Core i9-7800X is going to feature 6 cores, 12 threads and will carry a total of 8.25 MB of L3 cache.

Next up there is the i9-7820X, an octa-core processor with threads that double its core count, 11 MB of cache, the same PCIe lanes as the 7800-X, and the same RAM configuration as the rest of the lineup.

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. Increasing cache sizes without negatively impacting cache latency is a significant undertaking; Intel would have had to do a fundamental respin on Skylake to make this change. 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. It is a quad-core chip with the hyper-threaded design.

If this leaked roadmap is true-and that's a big if-it implies Intel won't be fixing one of the artificial segmentation barriers that's most annoyed enthusiasts: the lockout on PCI Express lanes. Still, it is a refreshing thought that Intel is actually trying to pull the strings once more in the field where it practically monopolized before the Ryzen processors became a thing. 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 excludes Core i9-7290X which might hit the stores in August. On the other hand, the Kaby Lake-X family will have two processors - Core i7-7740K and Core i7-7640K. The four-core Core i7-7640K comes with 6Mb of cache.
