Intel Core i9-7980XE comes in October

With its Ryzen processors, AMD has frightened its overwhelming competitor at the beginning of the year: Suddenly the Chiphersteller again powerful CPUs in the offer, which not only at the price with the Intel chips to compete, but also a proper performance offer. With the Computx presented threadripper chips, AMD took over and thus increased the pressure on Intel.

In the meantime, however, Croesus has been working on competition models based on the Kaby-Lake-X and Skylake-X architecture and assigned to the Basin Falls platform.

Now, Intel has said, when the new chips, which were partly also only presented on the Computex just released, will actually be available: According to this, prospective customers can pre-order the first models starting on 19 June. On June 26th the delivery of the i5-7640X, the i7-7740X, the i9-7800X, the i9-7820X and the i9-7900X will begin. This is also the market launch of the X299 chipset and the corresponding boards.

The other – more powerful – models of the Bassin-Falls platform are launched from August onwards. The top model, the Core i9-7980XE with its 18 cores is finally to come to the dealerships in October.
