"Since the Intel Core-X Series were announced last month at
Computex, I've been excited to see how well this high-end processor will
perform under Linux... Linux enthusiasts have plenty of highly-threaded
workloads such as compiling the Linux kernel, among other packages, and
thus have been very excited by the potential of the Core i9 7900X with
its ten cores plus Hyper Threading and sporting a 13.75MB cache. With
finally having an X299 motherboard ready, here are my initial Ubuntu
Linux benchmarks for the i9-7900X."
