10 cores at 4.7 GHz when OC'd certainly is not too shabby....

 

Certainly, the reduction in pricing from ludicrous 6950 pricing at $1700 to only silly $999 or so is a welcome change, not that I'd consider buying either in that pricing segment *for my own use*...

 

Since many folks (excluding myself) do indeed place emphasis on Handbrake and Cinebench...

http://hexus.net/tech/reviews/cpu/107017-intel-core-i9-7900x-14nm-skylake-x/?page=3

 

 

Same amount of cores, higher frequency, and a nice cut in price...(I heard almost 50% less than the silly 6950 pricing, so $850-ish?)

 

Now if only they were only $499 or so... :) (Until the mainboards come down, that is a big consideration for many folks also...)

 

Interesting that the 7900X actually draws a few less watts at the wall than an 1800X while gaming... http://hexus.net/tech/reviews/cpu/107017-intel-core-i9-7900x-14nm-skylake-x/?page=7  (To be fair, it should be noted it draws 50+ more watts while encoding)

Eh skylake X for me is a total joke, a overpriced platform that is a knee jerk reaction to AMD's recent projects.

I mean it would be nice that Intel would buy a goddamned clue and see that AMD is still the better value compared to their insane prices.

Intel has certainly lost touch and while yeah intel may still make better performing processors that means jack bleep if talking price points.

Up yours Intel

The top Threadripper is rumored to be $850-ish, which is hardly what I'd also call 'hop on this platform'-pricing , either... (Of course, that looks pretty cheap compared to the rumored ludicrous $1999 Intel will be wishing they can get for the top 18 core variant)

I expect several <16 core variants to be available at substantially less; it will be interesting to see the assorted 10-12 core vs 10-12 core comparisons for value vs. performance...)

Update: 4.7 GHz on 7900X, 10 cores, albeit using a custom TGhermaltake liquid cooling setup worth ~$400! :)

 

(On the positiive side, temps stayed at 72-73C this time, vice rising to 95C in an earlier test...

 

(Still wayyyy too steep pricewise for my blood!)

Update:

 

Now a few with assorted X299 boards *when overclocking*  are noticing very high temps on/near VRM components, such as 85C on thermal shrouds/sinks, and , 100C on rear of motherboard's PCB directly underneath VRM area....

 

Will Intel again respond with "Do not overclock them!"? :)
