Intel and AMD reportedly have powerful new multi-core CPUs coming

5 posts in this topic

Above: Ryzen 9 and Core i9s will bring insane multi-core performance to PC gaming.

I think it was The Pixies that said “If man is an i5, then God is an i7” — or something like that. I’m not great with lyrics. But, regardless, Intel is allegedly preparing to show us what i9 is and AMD will have a competitor of its own.

I think it was The Pixies that said “If man is an i5, then God is an i7” — or something like that. I’m not great with lyrics. But, regardless, Intel is allegedly preparing to show us what i9 is and AMD will have a competitor of its own.

 

Intel is preparing to reveal a new line of Core i9 processors for enthusiasts that will feature six-or-more cores, according to a leaked image on the AnandTech forums. AMD, meanwhile, is planning to launch its Threadripper CPUs that feature 10-or-more cores in June, according to a report on WCCFTech.

 

These new chips should compete directly against one another as the new high-end chips for consumers looking to build extremely capable rigs. But since Intel nor AMD have made any official announcements, we still don’t pricing or exact release dates.

 

When it comes to Intel, the company is planning to roll out the new Kaby Lake-X and Skylake-X chips, and it is the latter that will get the Core i9 branding. Here’s the lineup starting with the most powerful:

  • Core i9-7920X: 12 cores/24 threads, unknown clock, 16.5MB cache, 140W, 44 PCIe lanes
  • Core i9-7900X: 10 cores/20 threads, 3.3-to-4.3GHz, 13.75MB cache, 140W, 44 PCIe lanes
  • Core i9-7820X: 8 cores/16 threads, 3.6-to-4.3GHz, 11MB cache, 140W, 28 PCIe lanes
  • Core i9-7800X: 6 cores/12 threads, 3.5-to-4GHz, 8.25MB cache, 140W, 28 PCIe lanes

For AMD, this is part of its Ryzen 9 line. Here are the rumored details:

  • Ryzen 9 1998X: 16 cores/32 threads, 3.5-to-3.9GHz, 155W
  • Ryzen 9 1998: 16 cores/32 threads, 3.2-to-3.6GHz, 155W
  • Ryzen 9 1977X: 14 cores/28 threads, 3.5-to-4.1GHz, 155W
  • Ryzen 9 1977: 14 cores/28 threads, 3.2-to-3.7GHz, 140W
  • Ryzen 9 1976X: 12 cores/24 threads, 3.6-to-4.1GHz, 140W
  • Ryzen 9 1956X: 12 cores/24 threads, 3.2-to-3.8GHz, 125W
  • Ryzen 9 1956: 12 cores/24 threads, 3.0-to-3.7GHz, 125W
  • Ryzen 9 1955X: 10 cores, 3.6-to-4.0GHz, 125W
  • Ryzen 9 1955: 10 cores, 3.1-to-3.7GHz, 125W

Gamers will probably only need these CPUs in specific circumstances because an i7 Kaby Lake or a high-end Ryzen 7 are going to handle even 4K gaming without bottlenecking your performance. But, at the same time, it’s exciting to see how Intel and AMD want to take this space forward and what the high-end is going to look like. And if these rumors prove accurate, this PC gaming monkey has gone to heaven.

I wonder why did they not make them before AMD came up with Ryzen and such.

it is how the dirty industrie works,

without competition, they can release stuff at super slow pace and more often, so you have to keep buying just to get a little more they offer and so on...

 

but, if you think about it, they are idiots, intel holding back so long, obviously amd would eventually catchup...

 

i bet, that intel will now miraculously come up with something significant (new to us, old to them) to make amd catch dust..., unless they got sloppy all those past years...

 

we will see

If they did It would then be called a MONOPOLY...

 

Intel had to show that the competitor (AMD) had a chance to market their products.
