Intel launches Core X-Series processors for creators and enthusiasts

Intel’s Cascade Lake-X for High End Desktops 18 cores for Under $1000

Intel needs something on the market to compete with this so their upcoming Core i9-10980XE looks the ideal candidate, which will offer more PCIe lanes and higher capacity memory support at a slightly higher price, so customers may be tempted with this over the Ryzen 9 3950X.

Intel detailed the Cascade Lake-X chips on Tuesday, earlier than its planned 7 October announcement after Videocardz broke the embargo.

The Intel Core i9-10900XE will feature 10 cores and 20 threads, whereas the Core i9-10920XE will have 12 cores and 24 threads. This next round pushes faster single-core frequencies, support for more memory (256GB of quad-channel DDR4 RAM, up from 128GB), a few additional PCIe 3.0 lanes (48, up from 44). However, if the latest leaked benchmark scores of the Intel Cascade Lake-X 12 Core i9 10920X CPU is to be believed, it appears that the promises made by Intel might very well come to fruition. 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.

According to Intel, the new range of processors, formerly codenamed Comet Lake, deliver up to double digit performance gains compared to the previous generation of chips.

Hua, Sian - Huawei Mate 30 Loses Access To Google Apps Again
It also doesn't come with the Google Play Store, the main way users outside China can access Android apps. According to the report, Mate 30 devices had passed Google's SafetyNet anti-abuse check last week.

The X-series chips provide an intriguing mixture of performance and core options.

Next up is the Core i9-10940X with 14 cores, 28 threads, 3.3 GHz base speed, 4.6 GHz boost, 165 W TDP, and priced at $785.

The flagship Core i9-10980XE will boast 18 cores with 36 threads, a base frequency of 3.0 GHz and an all-core boost of 3.8 GHz, with individual cores being able to turbo boost up to a maximum of 4.8 GHz with Turbo Boost 3 technology. They won't need to "settle" for a non-X chip just to have cash left over for, well, the remainder of their computer. Though Performance Maximizer reproduces some of the same features other tuning utilities do, it's a "one-button" tool to overclock the processor.

These prices are in line with Intel's claim its next round of HEDT processors would offer "up to 2x the performance per dollar of the previous generation".
