Intel’s Skylake-X series of CPUs are coming, with the new X299 CPU socket and core counts that are rumoured to be as high as 12 cores and 24 threads.  
 
Now some benchmarking data for two Intel Skylake-X CPUs have surfaced online, with results for a 10-core and a 12-core model appearing on UserBenchmark’s database. These two CPUs are rumoured to be called the i9 7920X (12-core) and the i9 7900X (10-core), though at this time it is unknown if these results are from retail models or earlier engineering samples.

Looking at these results (above and below) we can see that the 10-core model offers very similar results to our own i7 6950X (10-core), coming with similar single-core performance and slightly higher multi-core performance. 

The 12-core model offers similar performance to our overclocked i7 6950X in multi-core performance and less single-core performance, which is what we would expect from a CPU that runs at lower clocks and offers a higher core count. Sadly we cannot offer a more in-depth comparison as these results will come from a very different test configuration than what we used in out original CPU reviews.  

Sadly we cannot offer a more in-depth comparison as these results will come from a very different test configuration than what we used in out original CPU reviews. Beyond this, the 12-core results shown here come with much higher single-core performance than the 10-core results, hinting that the 12-core system either offers higher single-core boost clock speeds or is coming with a significant overclock.

(Please note that no boost clock is listed, is it disabled?)

 

As always, these leaked results should not be taken as legitimate retail Skylake-X results until official reviews are live, as it is unknown what clock speeds or configuration these CPUs are used with.
