Is Intel launching ‘Core i9 Skylake X,’ ‘Kaby Lake X’ processors in June?

A leaked slide published by AnandTech forum member ‘Sweepr’ revealed that Intel revealed that the chip company will soon released the high-performance Core i9 processor this June 2017. The posts indicated that there will be four Core i9 processors, two each in the i9-7900 and i9-7800 ranges, and two Core i7 chips.

The Core i9-7900X is said to have 10 cores, 20 threads, and 13.75 megabytes of L3 cache, with both 7900-series chips offering 44 PCIe lanes. It is claimed the i9-7900X will offer a base clock speed of 3.3GHz, rising to 4.3GHz under Turbo Clock 2.0, and up to 4.5GHz under Turbo Clock 3.0, a third clock state that can allow the processors to perform at a higher clock speed than in Broadwell-E.

The Core i9-7820X will have 8 cores, 16 threads, and 11MB of L3 cache, while the i9-7800X offers 6 cores and 12 threads, along with a lower base clock speed of 3.5GHz to the i9-7820X’s 3.6Ghz. Both processors are claimed to use 28 PCIe lanes, with the i9-7820X also boasting Turbo Clock 3.0 support up to 4.5GHz.

The two Core i7 processors are the i7-7740K and the i7-7640K, with the quad-core chips using 8MB and 6MB of L3 cache respectively, and supporting 16 PCIe lanes.

Intel has yet to confirmed about the said post.
