The first phase of Intel's new Core launch will see the 4/6/8/10-core models launch, while the second phase will see the 12C/24T chip launch, and then finally the mudslide of 14/16/18-core parts. Intel will reportedly begin accepting pre-orders of the new 4/6/8/10-core Kaby Lake-X and Skylake-X processors on June 19, shipping to consumers on June 26. All of these processors will work on the new X299 chipset.

Intel's upcoming 12C/24T processor in the Core i9-7920X will launch in August for a hefty $1199, while the super high-end Core i9-7980XE with 18C/36T of power will launch in October.
