Skylake-SP core has some significant upgrades
     Sat, Jul 22 2017 | 12:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The amount and significance of the product and platform launches occurring today with the Intel Xeon Scalable family is staggering. Intel is launching more than 50 processors and 7 chipsets falling under the Xeon Scalable product brand, targeting data centers and enterprise customers in a wide range of markets and segments. From SMB users to “Super 7” data center clients, the new lineup of Xeon parts is likely to have an option targeting them. All of this comes at an important point in time, with AMD fielding its new EPYC family of processors and platforms, for the first time in nearly a decade becoming competitive in the space. That decade of clear dominance in the data center has been good to Intel, giving it the ability to bring in profits and high margins without the direct fear of a strong competitor. Intel did not spend those 10 years flat footed though, and instead it has been developing complimentary technologies including new Ethernet controllers, ASICs, Omni-Path, FPGAs, solid state storage tech and much more. Our story today will give you an overview of the new processors and the changes that Intel’s latest Xeon architecture offers to business customers. The Skylake-SP core has some significant upgrades over the Broadwell design before it, but in other aspects the processors and platforms will be quite similar. What changes can you expect with the new Xeon family?

     Fri, Jul 21 2017 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink

Along with preparing a series of Skylake-X processors, Intel's counter to Ryzen includes a Kaby Lake-X lineup consisting of the Core i5-7640X, which is basically a renamed 7600K, and the Core i7-7740X, a 7700K in disguise. Or are they?

Intel Core i7 7740X processor review
     Tue, Jul 18 2017 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For this test we'll review the quad core Core i7 7740X from Intel. Yes this is Kaby Lake -X, the more affordable processor that you will need to seat on a X299 motherboard. Albeit limited towards dual-channel memory, the processor does a good job, as well as it being tweakable towards 5.2 GHz on all cores.

Intel Core i7-7740X Skylake-X Processor Review
     Mon, Jul 17 2017 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While we’ve already had a lot of fun testing a bunch of X299 motherboards, as well as the flagship Core i9-7900X, we’re now cracking on with the new Core i7-7740X. The flagship CPU was fast, faster than anything we’ve ever tested, but how many people have £1000 to spend on a new CPU? Not many I would bet. However, the new quad-core 8-thread Core i7 looks set to please the masses, with a much more reasonable £330-ish price point. That’s an interesting price for a quad-core Intel CPU right now. Let’s not forget the 8-Core Ryzen 1700X is the same price, and I’m eager to see where the two stack up in a head to head battle.

Intel Core i9-7900X X-Series 10-Core Processor Review
     Mon, Jul 10 2017 | 5:04P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With Ryzen hitting the market a few months ago, it was only a matter of time before Intel played their hand. Admittedly, we all feel like Intel may have rushed their new Skylake-X hardware to market a little earlier than expected. However, with a 10-core 20-thread design, as well as improvements to the cache and VRM design, new instruction sets, and more, we’re still expecting great things from the Core i9.

Intel Core i9-7900X ‘Skylake-X’ 10C20T CPU Indepth Analysis
     Wed, Jul 05 2017 | 7:11P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel’s new Skylake-X series of processors, including the current flagship Core i9-7900X being tested in this review, has been one of those launches where everybody has had a strong opinion since the announcement. Whether it’s through stiff competition from AMD, anger at Intel’s seemingly-intentional aggressive product segmentation, or the overall launch that seems to have been rushed, X299 and Skylake-X have been hot topics for several weeks. We finally got our hands on the new 10-core, 20-thread Core i9-7900X processor that serves as the X299 platform’s and, by extension, Intel’s consumer CPU flagship… for the next couple of months, at least. How will the new $999 part based on Intel’s fast Skylake architecture perform?

"Going beyond last week's Intel Core i9 7900X Skylake-X Linux distribution comparison, here are some complementary tests when trying out the latest Windows 10 Insider Build with its Bash/Windows Subsystem for Linux featuring Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Additionally, some comparison results when running Windows 10 with VirtualBox and then an Ubuntu 16.04 LTS guest, all from this i9-7900X high-end desktop."
