Finally, Intel Core Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X processors have been announced, a new generation of Intel HEDT chips for the new LGA 2066 platform that comes to pass the previous LGA 2011-3 and its Intel Haswell-E and Intel processors Broadwell-E. One of the most interesting models is the Intel Core i9-7900X with a configuration of 10 cores and 20 threads that will offer a sensational performance in all types of tasks thanks to its high frequencies of operation.

This new generation of processors means an improvement in performance per clock cycle of up to 10% in multi-core tasks compared to previous generations and up to 15% improvement in mono-core. The great performance of Intel Skylake-X will allow you to carry out multimedia creation work and extreme multi-task with great speed and fluidity. The 4K multimedia or virtual reality edition will now be much easier thanks to the huge processing power of Intel Broadwell-E and especially its top exponent, the Intel Core i7 6950X.
Its 44 PCI-Express lines represent a slight increase compared to the 40 Broadwell-E and will allow you to design a 4-way SLI and 4-way crossfire configuration to which you can extract your full potential so that your video games work more fluidly than ever . You can also mount numerous solid state storage (SSD) devices compatible with the NVMe protocol that take advantage of the potential of the PCI-Express bus to connect directly with the CPU and achieve much higher performance.
Final words and conclusion about Intel Core i9-7900X
The Intel Core i9-7900X is currently one of the best processors on the market. It is an all-terrain processor that allows you to play smoothly, work at maximum power at 4 GHz frequencies and great stability with any application.
Given its great processing potential and speed thanks to Intel Turbo MAX 3.0. We see it as a great combination with Intel Optane and VROC (Virtual RAID on CPU) technology that will provide tremendous potential for database caching and data processing.
Many will be wondering if this processor is fit to play. The answer is clear, yes! And has nothing to envy (except slight FPS) regarding processors such as the Intel Core i7-7700K. As expected the performance difference at 3840 x 2160 pixel resolution (4K) is clearly reduced. In short, if your PC is just to play … better choose a processor more suitable for it: LGA 1151 or the i7-7800X six-core of this generation.
Regarding consumption and temperatures we have had a lime and another sand. Consumption falls within reason with a really good rest, but with a consumption that goes off (the whole system), but it is totally logical given its high TDP. While the temperatures are good with stock speeds, but when we do overclocking: 4.2 GHz are pretty decent … but when we want to reach the 4.4 GHz we are going to more than 90ºC. We already know this from previous generations of the mainstream series. Surely many end users choose to do Deli and there we will see how much temperatures can go down.
They will arrive in Spain from next week and from today you can book it in the main online stores in Spain. Its price is estimated at 999 dollars, which in Spain with taxes will rise a little bit more. Now we want to know your opinion, what do you think the new Intel Core i9-7900X? Do you think it’s worth it? Or do you prefer to wait for the new i9 or does your pocket only give you 4-core versions?
