It wasn't long ago that we reported on the leaked details on Intel's new Core i9-7920X, and now we have some full specifications to share. Intel's upcoming Core i9-7920X is the company's new 12C/24T processor which will fight directly with AMD's new Ryzen ThreadRipper 1920X, but Intel is charging $400 more at $1199 versus $799.

Intel's new Core i9-7920X will reportedly have a base CPU clock of 2.9GHz and boost clock of 4.0GHz, and it'll rock Intel's new Turbo Boost Max 3 technology that will push even higher than 4.0GHz. Inside, the 7920X will have 28.5MB of cache total split between 16.5MB of L3 and 12MB of L2 cache. X299 will support up to 44 PCIe 3.0 lanes, enough for a 2-way GPU + M.2 SSD set up all at max PCIe bandwidth.

X299 won't have enough PCIe lanes for high-end multi-GPU and multi-M.2 SSDs, with GPUs requiring x16/x16/x16/x16 for 4-way SLI/CF at full bandwidth. AMD's upcoming X399 chipset rocks an enthusiast worthy 64 PCIe 3.0 lanes, blowing the X299 chipset out of the water.
