Today at the Intel Keynote at Computex, SVP and GM Gregory Bryant announced that Intel is set to bring new X-Series CPUs to the high-end desktop (HEDT) market during Fall/Autumn, so around Q4. No other details were presented, but these are likely to be based on the new Cascade Lake silicon we’ve seen launched for the Xeon Scalable market in Enterprise later this year.

Core counts for Cascade Lake go up to 28 cores, however the previous generation X series went up to 18 cores. It will be interesting to see what Intel does with these new processors regarding socket support. Intel did state that there will be increases in memory support, CPU frequencies, and Turbo Boost Max beyond two cores.

More information to follow.

    Decades of experience.

    "I had a bad experience with the last AMD system I built. I'm never doing that again."

    I had a bad experience at a restaurant so I'm never going to eat again.

    Your analogy is close but you kinda whiffed it.... I don't have to forgo eating altogether, I just need to avoid that AMD restaurant that served me some under-cooked food.

    for 500$, July 7th will see the launch of Ryzen 9 3900x, which was shown on stage to beat a Skylake-X of the same core count, for more than half the cost. I'd say look into that, or wait until Threadripper 3 pops up again.

    But if you're that strung on Intel, then... I don't know, wait until a processor comes out which appeals to you?

    If you're think about buying a new computer to help compile times on a project, maybe it's time to break up the massive monolithic application. Or is it the dev tools?

    What number scheme fo CL-X?

    This leak refers to these new chips as LGA 2066 parts, which would put them in the same league as Intel's new Basin Falls Refresh processors
