Intel's Core i9 Extreme Edition CPU Chipset Features and Improvements

Speaking on the launch, Gregory Bryant, Corporate Vice President and General Manager of the Client Computing Group said in a blog post, "The Intel Core X-series processor family introduces a series of firsts that reflect the extreme performance we are delivering".

You'll need to shell out handsomely to get it, but Intel's new Core X processor family, unveiled on Tuesday, is created to handle any task an extreme gamer or video editor can throw at it.

Intel says the next generation chips will perform up to 30% better than the ones out today, at least in some circumstances and for some use cases.

Intel at Computex in Taipei on Tuesday unveiled its new family of "Core X" desktop processors and its first 18-core high-end Core i9 CPUs.

New too is the Intel X299 chipset to go with the Core X-series.

The Core-X lineup consists of the base model which has 4 cores all the way to the top with the i9 which has 18 cores and 36 threads - a first for any desktop processor.

Intel recently announced the new batch of its "Core X" processors, which included the monstrous i9 chip with 18 cores, The Verge reports. Core i9-7900X will come with 10 cores and 20 threads while Core i9 - 7820X will come with 8 cores and 16 threads. AMD's Ryzen Threadripper is well on its way to becoming the most powerful consumer CPU ever introduced.

Skylake-X also introduced the latest revision of the Turbo Boost Max 3 feature that was included on the last-generation Broadwell-E high-end desktop (HEDT) chips. Turbo Boost 3.0 has also been improved to increase both single and dual-core speeds. Intel Core i9 7980 XE does look like a game changer. United Kingdom pricing has yet to be confirmed, with Intel setting U.S. pricing for the 18-core Core i9 Extreme Edition at $1,999 (around £1,554 excluding taxes).

Starting from the base model, the Intel Core i5-7640X comes with 4 cores and 4 threads. The Core i9 line is nothing new as the company has already released the 10-core i9-7900X past year.

More interesting than the revamped Kaby Lake processors are Intel's new i9 line which will feature powerful specs with price tags to match.

To further cement its relationship with enthusiasts, Intel has also announced an own-branded all-in-one liquid cooling system based around a 120mm radiator.
