Intel X299 specifications leak alongside i9 naming scheme

 
A table detailing the specifications of Intel's X299 Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X CPUs has been shown revealed on the Anandtech Forums, showing some impressive boost clock speeds as well as a new Intel i9 naming scheme.   
 
Rumours of Intel i9 CPUs are as old as the companies i3-7 branding itself, with many expecting Skylake-X to come with the new i9 brand name to signify the boosted clock speeds achieved with Intel's Skylake architecture. This change in naming scheme could also be seen as a way to one-up AMD's new Ryzen 7 series of CPUs.   
 
This list includes CPUs that are listed for release in June, though there is also Intel's rumoured 12-core Skylake-X flagship, which is listed for an August release.

If this table is to be believed, Intel's X299 CPUs will offer some impressive boost clock speeds when compared to their Broadwell-E counterparts. The two highest end models, the i9 7900X and the i9 7820 are listed as having a turbo boost 3.0 clock speed (single core boost speed) of 4.5GHz, which is huge for a CPU with such a high core count. 

At this time this report cannot be verified, though it matches some previous rumours. Intel's X299 platform is expected to launch within the next month, so we should know whether or not this is true soon enough.

Damn, those are some beastly specifications. I wonder will the pricing be reasonable aswell or will they simply go for moar power...

















Oh wait... it's Intel.Quote

ive wanted a 6 core for ages, nearly went for a ryzen 5 but il wait until this is tested, im sure that the intel platform will cost twice as much though.Quote

Very much this. I'd love to have a hex-core chip from Intel but I just can't see them selling it for £200-250. Right now I think a second hand i7-6700k might be the way to go. We'll see what's about once the cash is ready.Quote

You two above could opt for the 6C/12T upcoming coffee lake LGA1151 CPU? Over 300 quid likely but more affordable than Basin Falls CPUs I reckon.

Back to the slide, you just beat me to it Mark ha ha, nice find! Could someone explain turbo 2 and 3 to me? Why two, I mean?

The i9-7820X (I thought there weren't going to be X SKUs this round, only K (although this shown splitting makes loads more sense) seems to have my name on it; exactly the specs I'm wishing for. I'm good with 28 lanes as well; don't care for SLI and 1-2 M.2 drives and I'm set. Loving a 4.5GHz turbo as well, exactly what I want out of the box. Slap on 100-200MHz more and done. Now, who wants to buy my soul? I'll throw in a bag of peanuts for the lucky taker! Would it be senseless to only run 4X4GB RAM (=affordable) instead of 4x8 (=nearly 500 euro) for 8C/16T?

Interesting line up, if true, and it looks like there's a slot open at the top for a potential 7950X...?Quote

I had an I9 about two years back. That's what they were going to call Westmere but Bulldozer was crap so they never changed the name.Quote
