Late last week, Intel announced its strongest answer yet to AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper family of HEDT processors with the Cascade Lake-X family. While Intel’s Core-X processors have always been competitive on the performance side of things in the past, their pricing tiers have always been woefully inflated compared to AMD’s offerings. That changes with the 10th generation Core-X processors, which have seen their prices roughly slashed in half compared to their predecessors. The flagship of the new Cascade Lake-X family is the Core i9-10980XE (say that three times fast), which is an 18-core/36-thread CPU. The processor has a base clock of 3GHz, a maximum Turbo...

Intel on Monday unveiled a bunch of new Xeon W-2200 series processors at comparatively aggressive price points. The new Glacier Falls CPUs range in core and thread count from 4-cores/8-threads up to 18-cores/36-threads, and are up to around 50 percent less expensive than the previous generation Xeon W-2100 series. Increased competition from rival AMD has seen Intel shake up pricing on its higher end processors. We saw this last week with the introduction of Intel's newest Core-X series high-end desktop (HEDT) processors based on Cascade Lake-X, which also saw MSRPs slashed up to to 50 percent compared to the previous generation Skylake-X lineup.

Intel earlier this week officially announced its new Cascade Lake-X family of HEDT processors that will be marketed under the Core-X brand. The processors are built on the tried and true 14nm++ manufacturing process and will be going head-to-head with AMD's second-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors (at least initially), and will face even tougher competition once third-generation Threadripper parts arrive in November. The four new Cascade Lake-X processors in the family include: Core i9-10980XE (18-cores/36-threads): $979 Core i9-10940X (14-cores/28-threads):  $784 Core i9-10920X (12-cores/24-threads):  $689 Core i9-10900X (10-cores/20-threads):  $590...

Intel wasn't kidding when it said that the new Cascade Lake-X processors (the foundation of the upcoming Core-X family) would offer anywhere from a 1.74x to 2.09x uplift in performance per dollar compared to their Skylake-X predecessors. Intel is slashing prices by roughly 50 percent with its upcoming Cascade Lake-X processors, putting its chips on more equal footing with AMD's second-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors. For starters, the top dog in Intel's HEDT product stack, the Core i9-10980XE will now be priced at $979. To put this in perspective, the Core i9-9990XE carries an MSRP of $1,979. Given what we heard from Intel in a "leaked" memo about the threat... Read more...
With the launch of Cascade Lake-X just days away, we're starting to see a few more leaks regarding Intel’s upcoming Core-X HEDT processor family. As you all know by now, Cascade Lake-X is still built on 14nm++ process tech, since Intel has only rolled out 10nm in limited quantities for its Ice Lake-U mobile processors. With that being said, we are confident that there will be at least four members in this new Cascade Lake-X family, which you'll find listed below: Core i9-10900X (10-core/20-thread) Core i9-10920X (12-core/24-thread) Core i9-10940X (14-core, 28-thread) Core i9-10980XE (18-core/36-thread) So far, we've seen benchmarks leaks for both the Core i9-10900X and...

Over the past week, we've covered quite a few leaks regarding Intel and AMD's next-generation HEDT (High End Desktop) processors. AMD has held the advantage with its second-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors, while Intel is looking to counter later this month with its Cascade Lake-X based Core-X processors. Not to be outdone, AMD is poised to counterattack later this year with its third-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors. With all of this HEDT goodness swirling around for PC enthusiasts, it should come as no surprise that motherboards for these new processors are starting to leak. Today, those leaks come courtesy of a slew of Gigabyte motherboards that were listed with the Eurasian... Read more...
We have a small update to an article that we first brought you yesterday. As many of you are already aware, Intel is just days away from launching its new line of 10th generation Cascade Lake-X processor family. The first of those processors that came to light was the Core i9-10900X, which is the "entry-level" entry into Intel’s HEDT family. Today, we're getting a look at what is alleged to be Intel's flagship desktop processor: the Core i9-10980XE. Like the Core i9-10900X that was leaked yesterday, Geekbench figures for the processors were discovered by momomo_us and were obtained from an unreleased Dell Precision 5820 Tower X-Series desktop. The Core i9-10980XE is shown to have... Read more...
Intel is pretty proud of its incoming Cascade Lake-X family of HEDT (High End Desktop) processors, as the company made very clear in slides late last month. Now, we're getting a look at the first member of the Cascade Lake-X family: the new Core i9-10900X. While this is a 10th generation processor from Intel, it isn't built on 10nm process tech like Ice Lake. Instead, this is another refresh of Skylake-X, meaning that we're still beholden to the 14nm++ process node. With that being said, this is a 10-core/20-thread processor according to Geekbench with a base clock of 3.47GHz and a boost clock of 4.4GHz. However, momomo_us, who happened to stumble across the benchmark, says that... Read more...
Intel first announced its Core i9-9900KS processor way back in late May, and we haven't heard much from them about the product since then. The Core i9-9900KS will be Intel's new enthusiast-class flagship processor for its mainstream platform and it promises to pack a serious performance punch. Intel today confirmed that the processor will begin shipping in October, although no exact date was given. At its heart, the Core i9-9900KS is an 8-core / 16-thread 9th generation Core CPU built on Intel's 14nm++ process tech. Not only does the processor feature a tweaked base clock (now sitting at 4GHz compared to 3.6GHz on the Core i9-9900K), but it can boost to 5GHz across all eight of its... Read more...
What appear to be a pair of unreleased Cascade Lake-X (CSL-X) processors have found their way to Geekbench, the popular benchmarking suite and veritable hot spot for CPU leaks. In this case, the leaked entries point to a variant with 18 cores and 36 threads of computing muscle, and a second slice of silicon with 10 cores and 20 threads. Cascade Lake-X will eventually take its place as Intel's top-ranking high-end desktop (HEDT) series, supplanting Skylake-X in the ever-growing Core-X family. Cascade Lake is not entirely new, of course—Intel launched a line of Cascade Lake Xeon CPUs back in April, then more recently quietly introduced a bunch of Xeon W 3000 series based on Cascade Lake-W...

Intel is expected to launch a batch of Cascade Lake processors sometime this year, and likely sooner than later. How soon? Perhaps in just a matter of a few weeks, according to the latest leak, which has Cascade Lake pegged for an April launch. The leak also suggests we will see Cascade Lake-X processors unveiled at Computex, which runs from May 28 to June 1. If those time frames turn out to be accurate, it is going to be an interesting first half of the year. Bear in mind that AMD also has new chips on the horizon (or is that horiZEN?), including new 7-nanometer Ryzen and Threadripper CPUs for desktops and high-end desktops (HEDTs). Cascade Lake (LGA 3647) : April Cascade Lake-X (LGA 2066) :... Read more...
Even though we are still waiting for Cannon Lake to arrive in volume, it has been a busy year for Intel, which just recently introduced its first 8-core/16-thread desktop processor (Core i9-9900K) for the mainstream market. For enthusiasts, it also refreshed its high-end desktop (HEDT) 9th gen-branded Core-X series processors culminating in the Core i9-9980XE. So, what comes next in the HEDT space? The answer is most likely Glacier Falls. The latest round of Core X-series CPUs is called Basin Falls Refresh. Glacier Falls is slated to be the successor with an arrival time frame pegged for the second quarter of 2019, assuming a previously leaked roadmap ultimately proves accurate (an earlier leak...
