The Intel Core i9 7980XE Extreme Edition is the most powerful market processor yet , with 18 cores and 36 threads, a teraflop bandwidth and Intel AVX-512 support. The 36-wire advanced configuration and four-channel memory will delight content creators. In addition, with 44 PCI-Express 3.0 tracks directly connected to the CPU , the system can be expanded by connecting to the motherboard faster SSDs, multiple graphics cards (up to a total of four), and ultra-fast Thunderbolt 3 technology.
All processors are compatible with the new chipset Intel X299. It will appear on the computers of partners in the coming weeks. As for the architecture, almost all processors Core Intel Core i9 based on an updated version of the sixth-generation platform skylake. The company calls it Skylake X. Two quad-core models, i5-7640X and i7-7740X, built on the architecture Kaby Lake X.

It is known that the processor will help the previously submitted Hyper-Threading and Turbo Boost Max 3.0 technology. The latter uses the possibility of the driver and the information stored in the CPU, to distribute the load on the fastest core. As expected, under the Turbo Boost 3.0, Skylake-X will increase the frequency up to 4.5 GHz.
Officially announced the 5 processors Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X, starting with i5 and ending i9 – as we have seen, the old classification also is not finished. If you reduce the characteristics of new products in the table will result in the picture

The most expensive models Intel has updated the Turbo Boost technology, which is designed to automatically increase the clock frequency of the processor. The new version is called Turbo Boost Max 3.0. According to the company, thanks to the technology of chips Core X became 10% faster in terms of multi-threaded performance than the previous generation, and 15% faster than with a single-threaded operation.All processors in the LGA2066 made housings, models 7600 and 7700 belong to Kaby Lake-X, the rest – to the Skylake-X. As we can see, the differences between the extreme members of the family are very large – the i5-7640X, according to the index, not even gipertredinga. Experts position it as a kind of cap on the socket, an intermediate step in a protracted upgrade.
