"While the June launch of Intel's X-Series processors took the
attention with the top-end Core i9 7900X Skylake-X and Core i7 7740X
Kabylake-X processors, coming in several hundred dollars less than the
i9-7900X is the i7-7820X, which still packs a very hard punch. We have
now received a Core i7 7820X for Linux testing at Phoronix and are
beginning with a round of benchmarks on Ubuntu."
