Intel’s X299 platform is rumoured to be launching on May 30th during the company’s keynote at Computex 2017, here Intel’s senior vice president Navin Shenoy is expected to officially reveal the new platform. 
 
According to this new leak from Benchlife, Intel will not just be releasing new 6, 8 and 10 cores with Skylake X, but also a new 12-core model which is a 20% increase in max core count over Broadwell-E.

Right now AMD is expected to release a high-end X399 platform to compete with Intel’s high-end desktop platform, HEDT, which will allegedly include a 16-core model. This makes the idea of an Intel 12-core all the more tantalising, especially if it can achieve high clock speeds when overclocked. 

If AMD is indeed releasing a 16-core Ryzen CPU and Inter are releasing a 12-core Skylake-X CPU it would be very interesting to see how both CPUs compare, especially after overclocking. This also raises the question of how Intel will price this new 12-core model, as they can either use the same price as their current 10-core flagship or increase their pricing to even higher levels.
