The Intel Main i9-7980XE Excessive Version CPU is the company’s top rated of the line CPU that will attribute eighteen-cores and 36-threads, with a base frequency of two.6GHz that clocks up to four.2GHz as a result of Turbo Boost two.. Using TurboBoost 3. to precisely overclock the two fastest cores on the processor will see the Main i9-7980XE get to speeds of four.4GHz.

Further than its top rated of the line eighteen-main CPU, Intel also release the specifications of its twelve-, 14- and sixteen-main processors that attribute less cores, but assistance better frequencies.
The twelve-main Intel Main X-sequence processor will be offered starting on August twenty eighth. In the meantime, the 14- to eighteen-main Intel Main X-sequence processors will start out delivery on September twenty fifth.
Price is typically in which AMD has the edge on Intel, and it would seem like that is continue to the scenario, with the sixteen-main i9-7960X going for $1,699 (all over £1,three hundred, AU$2150), although Threadripper&aposs sixteen-main variation will be $999 (all over £770, AU$1,295) – really a little bit much less expensive.
