    Can't really see skylake-x as being a worthy upgrade. Might as well wait for kabylake-x

    Not upgrading until a 16-core is released.

    Went from 2 cores to 4, then to 8, now need 16 for my next upgrade. Oh, and full PCI-E 4.0 workstation class motherboard. It'll be a while. Likely 2020.

    Hopefully this won't be out to soon, I've not long got my 5960X lol Need to max that out first then buy my first 10 core ;)

    KabyLake X is interesting, 4 cores on the HEDT platform, nice starter chip for someone who perhaps couldn't afford an 8 or 10 core straight away!

    Yeah, probably going to be a very high clocked 4core chip.. 4.5Ghz+ for sure, given that high TDP 114W..


    Although I was a bit surprised to see entry 6core SkylakeX, was almost positive it will be 8core as entry not another 6core. :nerd:

    So we're not looking at the hexa/octa channel 3500 pin monster socket that's also been floating around, damn!

    isnt the rumor (also as in the article) said skylake-x will release with kabylake-x
    skylake-x will have 6~10cores while kabylake-x 4cores
    both with same socket 2066

    this confusing for most of us, with the release pattern which intel never did before

    i cant give exact answer but there are numerous reasons i guess...
    the simplest one maybe because the socket 2066, even so the die small, they need to package it in bigger size solely for the socket size/pins


    that 3500 pin is for skylake/cannonlake-EP (purley platform), basically its server / xeons socket
    its just on early rumor its reported as skylake X

    I really doubt the kabylake-X chip will be much faster than the regular desktop part.

    they have probably just allowed ECC on the memory, and some other Enterprise features not found on the Desktop version.
    that could account for the slight increase in TDP.

    What I see about the Skylake-X is that huge reduction in LLC....

    The only truly important news is that Intel is once more requiring a new socket for new CPUs, this time in the workstation market.
